SoftMeter application analytics SDK: Compiled library files and demo programs
Listen to the heartbeat of your software
SoftMeter (former libAppTelemetry) is a Windows, MacOS and IOS library that allows you to send usage statistics from your program to your Google Analytics property.
It is ideal for shareware developers as it extends the website usage data with the applications usage data.
Shareware developers for desktop programs can now see via one free reporting platform (Google Analytics), 1) how people use their website, and 2) how they are converted to also use the software on their desktop computer or laptops.
The library can also be used in InnoSetup scripts and other installation packages, (e.g. Installaware) to track Setups and Uninstalls of your desktop software applications.
How it works with Google Analytics
