UserClues collects individual clues (events) that are sent to it through a code library that's placed into your application. Our platform takes the clues and organizes them so you can make sense of what your users are doing.
UserClues is designed to work with web applications or mobile-web hybrid applications, native mobile apps for iOS and Android, and desktop applications in Windows and OS X.
There are open-sourced client libraries built for Ruby on Rails, Javascript, PHP, C# and Objective-C. If you need UserClues to work with a different language, our API is well documented so you can easily start your own and contribute if you wish!
UserClues events are sent asynchronously to our data warehouse and the client libraries are lightweight so there is no noticeable effect on the performance of your application. If communication with UserClues fails for any reason, tracking is ended and flagged to prevent your application from using resources it doesn't need.
In the event that one of the UserClues servers is not available to receive your data, the client library event reporting functionality will silently stop sending events.
Google Analytics is optimized for monitoring the performance of web content and advertising campaigns. While it can be used somewhat to track random events, Google Analytics will never offer the depth of data and reporting that UserClues does.
Within the UserClues dashboard, data can be segmented based on built-in parameters like categories and session details, but also on custom data elements that are registered along with your users' experiences. Have a peek at a simulation inside our dashboard to see for yourself.
