Countly vs Google Analytics: What are the differences?

Countly: Real-time, open source mobile app analytics. Countly is the only open source mobile analytics tools with a wide set of features, including real-time update, multi-platform support, scalable infrastructure and a non-prohibitive license; Google Analytics: Enterprise-class web analytics. Google Analytics lets you measure your advertising ROI as well as track your Flash, video, and social networking sites and applications.

Countly and Google Analytics are primarily classified as "Mobile Analytics" and "General Analytics" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Countly are:

  • Real time dashboard
  • Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Blackberry, Appcelerator Titanium and Unity3D SDKs
  • Write and Read APIs

On the other hand, Google Analytics provides the following key features:

  • Analysis Tools- Google Analytics is built on a powerful, easy to use, reporting platform, so you can decide what data you want to view and customize your reports, with just a few clicks.
  • Content Analytics- Content reports help you understand which parts of your website are performing well, which pages are most popular so you can create a better experience for your customers.
  • Social Analytics- The web is a social place and Google Analytics measures success of your social media programs. You can analyze how visitors interact with sharing features on your site (like the Google +1 button) and engage with your content across social platforms.

We have integrated Panelbear on our Website, rather than Google Analytics, because it is way more respecting of the User's Privacy. Whilst Google Analytics gives us in-depth information on virtually everything, we don't even need that much. Panelbear keeps it simple and in addition to that, displays the data well structured in a simple and intuitive dashboard
