Monitor your apps better with Microsoft's Dev Center App

Dev Center is a Windows Phone app from Microsoft designed to give Windows Phone developers a better handle on their app's performances.

While all the performance data is available through Microsoft's Windows Phone Dev Center website (opens in new tab), Dev Center app puts all that information on your Windows Phone, allowing developers to track the real world performance of their apps while on the go.

Dev Center

From the Dev Center you can view download and crash trends, view user reviews, and payment information. You can chart trends for five days, one month, six months and one year periods.

The app does require a Windows Phone Dev Center account and is currently only available in English.

Dev Center is a free app from Microsoft that you can find here (opens in new tab) in the Windows Phone Store.

Thanks, everyone, for the tip!

  • Very convenient. This saves me time from visiting the site on a mobile browser; in most cases not even bothering since it was a bad experience. Too bad this wasn't done a while back, but glad it's here
  • Works on WP 7 & 8. Edit: looks very nice. Really smooth. Now I want to finish my app so I can plot some data!
  • Wow, amazing !!! Finally :)
  • Works great! Very easy to work with.
  • Thanks for the heads up. Very useful.
  • Awesome!
  • When I try to use, says: "we' re update the app, visit the store" but when I go to store no update available.
  • Wont open, just say a new version on the store. Uninstalled and reinstalled still says the same
  • Hi,
    To those who are having the version error. Unfortunately this is a misleading error (which will be fixed in the next version). The actual error is that your account is "Incomplete" (missing data such as tax/payout/etc or not vetted). The only workaround at the moment is to get your account to "active" state by completing all the required information. We're reevaluating this checks and plan to update the issue as soon as we can.
    I apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Awesome!! Thank you Microsoft!
  • Awesome! Always wanted this! And now it's here!
  • Wish to have the same for windows store.
  • Consequently, our landscapes and cities are covered by ‘base stations’ that relay the microwave signals used for communication. Both the base stations and the mobile phones emit microwave radiation. - Marla Ahlgrimm
  • Nice looking app. It works great on my Sprint HTC Arrive with 7.8 on it.
     
    Also, glad to see it was published by Microsoft. It gives a warm feeling inside to know I did not have to give my sign in information to a 3rd party publisher to see my data.
