    Apple has updated the iTunes Connect portal that developers use to track and manage App Store apps. The site has a new Sales and Trends section that allows developers to track sales across certain time periods, sales groups, and more, as well as estimate total revenue amounts, iMore reports.
    Many larger developers have forgone iTunes Connect entirely because of its lack of features for more advanced analysis. App Figures and App Annie are two of the more popular app analytics platforms, with many large developers using them to track sales figures across a vast array of categories.

    Apple also has an iTunes Connect Mobile iOS app, but it was not updated along side the website today. [Direct Link]

    Sad to see that the iTunes Connect iOS app still hasn't even been updated for iOS 7.

    Unfortunately, it seems to be just as buggy as the previous version.

    Has anyone figured out how to show sales totals for just a single day? Even when selecting just one day using the calendar, it gives me a three-day range of sales.

    No automatic reports in my inbox? I'll stick with Distimo.

    The iTunes Connect mobile app is borderline useless.

    Mainly because it doesn't remember login credentials, so you need to painstakingly type in your long secure password every time. Kind of annoying when it's something you're likely to want to check each day.

    It's much faster just to go into the web version using Safari, which of course does remember your password using Keychain.

    Would be nice if there was a useful iTunes Connect app, though, so hopefully a redesign is on the way.

    I'd rather they don't.

    But I do want them to make their mobile app useful, which it, in it's current state, is not.

    I have sort of found a workaround. If you add a filter with "Content" you can add multiple apps to it. You can then save the view. It will display each app as a separate line in the graph and if you hover over a day it will show the apps individual sales. I have simply created a single view with every one of my apps in the content filter so it shows each app as its own line on the chart

    First thing I thought about...

    God, how can you forget to add a "last day" or a "single day" filter...

    Thanks for the workaround.

    I've also found that the new interface can't seem to remember which iTunes Connect account I'm logged into. I have two accounts — one for apps, the other for iBooks. If I log out of one and into the other, the reports that are displayed will be for the account I into which I was previously logged.

    This is a huge security bug, especially in an office in which work computers are shared.

    Much eager anticipation here. BUT... what I'm interested in is unit sales per app per month, and what it reports is significantly different from the figures in the old-style spreadsheet download (which is still available). Also it is reporting significant sales on the desktop platform, for which I have no products.

    There are some nice new features, such as the easy access to lifetime figures, but I cannot understand why the daily sales figures were removed.

    Yesterday it appeared.....all I got was a group of spinning wheels and none working links/options. This on Safari
    Today....the same on Safari....changed to Chrome.....and after it loaded its Ok.
    I like the date slider to get an idea of sales patterns.
    Its a lot better than the useless version it replaced.

    Yes, same here. Completely ridiculous :-/ Apparently no way to check the sales of yesterday, … and in general no way to check a single day, …

    In general it looks of course nice, new and pretty, but then usability is just, so, … :-/

    ----------

    At least the mobile up still allows up to check the sales of yesterday, … so check that on iOs, and the pretty graph up to the day before yesterday in Safari, … :confused::mad:
