    Online reports statistics

    Dear all,

    On Facebook we're trying to understand if number of developers who experience decrease in sales is large enough and outperform those who (accidentally ) have increase in the February month. Please, if you're part of the Facebook group (OVI developers) share your results. If not, post them here.

    This is the current questions (answer decrease or increase)
    - do you experience sharp (over 30%) decrease on 3-4 February?
    - do you experience sharp (over 30%) decrease on 13-14 February?
    - do you experience sharp (over 30%) decrease on 23-24 February?

    Thank you for your collaboration.
    Cheers

    Re: Online reports statistics

    Would it be better to do it in the facebook ? Also I suppose you are not moderator or any official person for this research, thus what is the actual goal and purpose of this exercise ?

    We do it on Facebook as well. It's just not all developers are there.

    >Also I suppose you are not moderator or any official person for this research, thus what is the actual goal and purpose of this exercise ?

    You're are right, I'm not Nokia representative or any "official" person. The goal of this research is to find out if there is a sufficient number of developers experience the same problems with online reports in order to initiate an "official" research at Nokia.

    Just to clarify, I'm not forcing anyone to share their personal information, just to post if he/she experience problem with reports or not. It's in interest of every developer to have the proper statistics for online reports. But this issue won't be considered if there are just 1-2 developers with above mentioned problem

    Something can not be right.

    Since I'm here (November 2011) it has always been going down. In December and January in total terms sold more, but because I added several apps.

    With sales so low I start to wonder if it's worth betting in this store.

    Don't think so, the values for this period seems average.

    Yes. I observe significant drop last 5 days or so. However, this may be somehow related to money processing, because I received remittance advice this morning.

    Re: Online reports statistics

    There is an update regarding differences between Beta Reports and regular Reports: according to developer support, these differences are caused by apps redownloads and updates - Beta Reports take these redownloads in account while displaying downloads statistics, but regular Reports does not. While this certainly may be the case, but I have almost two times difference for some content items between Beta Reports and regular Reports, so I have some doubts about this explanation. But I'm releasing regular updates to these applications, so who knows.

    Re: Online reports statistics

    lostdev, thanks for update, explanation seems to be reasonable Let's hope they didn't make it up to avoid real checks of the system. Would be great to have a new content that does not have re-downloads, by chance are you planning to release a new app any time soon ? Thanks

    I have a such content item right now, and difference between Beta Reports and Reports for this content item is about 5-10%.

    Re: Online reports statistics

    What is really interesting, the difference is almost twice in Reports and Reports (Beta) for several content items. For example there are purchases stats for some of them (Beta Reports numbers are in parentheses):

    Content item 190039: 24.02 - 37 (63), 25.02 - 48 (72), 26.02 - 62 (87), 27.02 - 37 (69), 28.02 - 35 (79)
    Content item 210873: 24.02 - 41 (63), 25.02 - 42 (74), 26.02 - 27 (46), 27.02 - 25 (39), 28.02 - 27 (59)
    Content item 68870: 24.02 - 27 (61), 25.02 - 102 (132), 26.02 - 35 (65), 27.02 - 36 (75), 28.02 - 57 (82)

    Interesting, isn't it? Why are such big differences in numbers? Andrew, can you please take a look on these stats? It seems that certainly something going wrong with this.

    P.S. Regarding pippo2010's question about sales drops, there are additionally some purchase numbers during this week in comparison with previous week, for example, for content item 210873:

    23.02 - 45, 24.02 - 41, 25.02 - 42, 26.02 - 27, 27.02 - 25, 28.02 - 27
    17.02 - 95, 18.02 - 82, 19.02 - 88, 20.02 - 65, 21.02 - 88, 22.02 - 75

    So I have a 50% drop last week, not even 30%.

    Re: Online reports statistics

    lostdev , wow, thanks for sharing this very interesting info. It seems that data in original reports is not catching up with Beta Reports. Sadly Andrew on vacations till March 18, so I'll move inquiry with Ben, who temporally taking Andrew's place. I wonder when Beta Reports become stable Do they offer any additional interesting features compared to current one (obviously you bound by some agreement, so just a general info that do not break it would be highly appreciated)? Thanks a lot
