Mobile analytics is about understanding your mobile customers. It seems that every day a new analytics vendor releases a “must have” analytics product for your app. Instead of trying or adopting every new product, I recommend mobile app publishers focus on a “mobile analytics maturity model” - a model that promotes building up your analytics capabilities along different axes. This blog post describes the three levels of analytics in our maturity model, who in the organization needs to be involved, and which analytics vendors can help you get the metrics to enable better decision making for your apps to support your users....

As the app economy matures, it’s participants will have to quickly move from self governance to establishing standards or even regulation to address end-user privacy expectations.Who is responsible for security and privacy when dealing with applications and APIs?In the era of the browser, privacy questions were handled expressly between the website operator and the end user.
