Microsoft working on Windows Dev Center app for Android
Windows developers will soon be able to manage and monitor their apps on Android.
Microsoft is currently working on a dedicated Windows Dev Center app for Android. Spotted by Android Police (via MSPU), the app is currently available on the Google Play Store as an early alpha version marked with an (Unreleased) tag.
If you're a Windows developer, much of what you've come to expect from the Dev Center will be available here upon full release. Microsoft indicates you'll be able to dive into app performance data, such as acquisition, revenue, and crash highlights. You can also investigate crashes and even respond to customer reviews. Here are the highlights:
- Track app performance data: Use the dashboard to view acquisition, revenue, and crash highlights across all your apps. Then dig into specific app data to get a more detailed view, including customer demographics and OS version.
- Investigate crashes: Use crash data to help identify and correct issues in your apps. View crashes over time by type, device, app version, and the exception type to help pinpoint issues in your code.
- Respond to customer reviews: Check out the latest reviews and respond to your customers directly through the app.
While the app is available to download, it's designated as the first alpha version of the app, which means its in a very early state and likely quite unfinished. Still, if you want to check it out, you can find it on Google Play now.
