About This Course
In this course, you’ll learn how to grow an app's user base using Firebase Analytics, a free and unlimited analytics solution. You'll be able to learn who your users are and how they interact with your app. You can then use this information to make informed decisions to improve your app, such as how difficult to make a level in a game, where to place an advertisement, or what products to stock. We'll begin by covering the basics of digital analytics focusing on an app that is live in the App Store and Google Play Store as an example. You'll then explore the app's actual usage data using the Firebase console. After that, you'll learn how easy it is to add Firebase Analytics to an app and quickly gain insights. Finally, you'll learn how to use Firebase Crash Reporting, Firebase Remote Config, and Firebase Dynamic Links integrated with Firebase Analytics to improve your app and grow your user base. By the end of this course you'll have an app that records how users interact with it, and you'll know how use that data to improve performance. You'll have the foundation needed to apply Firebase Analytics to your own apps.
