The most important principles for building successful apps, repeated by veteran entrepreneurs and venture capitalists have been - Design, Simplicity and Speed. All of them are necessary for building a reputable brand.
There are many things that affects the real app performance seen by end users. This includes user's location, browser, device, page being browsed, server load, network latency, available bandwidth and more. Moreover, as the app grows with addition of new features, making sure that the app performs consistently good for all users is a big challenge. With smartphones and tablets gaining on desktop and notebooks, the landscape has become even more complex.
FuelDeck helps you to not only monitor performance but also analyze how it's affecting your growth metrics. A slow website can significantly increase bounce rate, lower engagement, ultimately leading to slow growth in sales and revenue. With Fueldeck, you can measure all the business metrics and correlate them with performance. With, un-sampled data, businesses also get deep insights and better metrics like median and percentile along with averages.
FuelDeck provides performance timeline for each user and is deeply user-centric. You can also explore performance trends for different segments of users. For example, are iOS users less patient than android users and more likely to bounce on slower sites? And with drilldown reports you can easily find performance data for a particular page (like home page), country, browser or device. Adding new features can slow down the site, that's where realtime monitoring comes into picture. FuelDeck provides performance data with one second resolution, with which you can easily see if any bad code is hurting the end-user experience and take immediate action.
FuelDeck is currently in beta and is already processing more than a million performance metrics per day. So signup today and take the first step towards an amazing end-user experience!

Having reviewed literally thousands of apps over the years there appears to be three important principles to giving a chance of success - the overall design, look and 'feel' of the app, how easy it is to use and how fast it runs. All three have to work properly to get a foot in the door. It's easy enough to see how an app performs from the developer's end but it's a little tougher to see an app's performance from the point of view of the end user. There are many factors that can affect an app's performance and they have been exacerbated more recently with the introduction of tablets and smartphones. Does the app run faster on Android or on iPhone, for example? Are iPad users more patient than Galaxy users? FuelDeck is a monitoring and analytic application that will analyze all these things and more. It aims to tell you where you are going right and where you may be going wrong so that you can do something about it.
