PacketZoom launches free mobile analytics tool for app developers

Mobile app acceleration company, PacketZoom, today launched Mobile IQ, a free mobile analytical tool which lets app developers analyse and troubleshoot app performances in real-time.

The feature will be integrated as part of PacketZoom’s Mobile Expresslane platform, which has been built to accelerate mobile apps by up to 3x. The platform also rescues up to 90% of TCP disconnects and CDN costs. The addition of Mobile IQ should offer enhanced end-to-end analytics, control and optimization.

The company has already vowed to keep Mobile IQ free of charge forever.

Chetan Ahuja, PacketZoom Founder and CTO, explains:

“We believe that monitoring data is simply not enough by itself. Mobile IQ helps developers detect issues and offers ways to control their apps by optimizing the connection, communication and content delivery with our proprietary Mobile Expresslane. It is a single SDK that does it all. We call it ‘data liberation’ and we are honored to empower developers with a sense of ownership and control of what is rightfully theirs.”

Among the core features of the addition are real-time alerts on app throughput, transfer time and error rates. Mobile IQ also detects problems with slow response times and disconnects. This should help developers improve their response time.

The real difference to other solutions is Mobile IQ’s network control feature which can auto-fix issues without the developer having to release an updated version of the app.

That feature surely is where Mobile IQ together with Mobile Expresslane shine.

PacketZoom adds that Mobile IQ also works with mobile platforms such as Unity, Cordova and React Native.

Shlomi GIan, PacketZoom CEO, says that the tool is setting some new standards for the mobile performance ecosystem.

“As networking experts, our mission is to empower developers with a modern data collection and mobile networking stack so they can finally gain full visibility to app behavior and control it in real time. Many APM solutions were originally created for web and ported to mobile apps. After talking to hundreds of developers, we’ve decided to launch an affordable mobile-only solution. By affordable we mean free forever.”
