Key metrics for mobile app monitoring, analytics, and observability

In this section, we’ll look at a few key metrics for mobile app monitoring, analytics, and observability that you should consider for these purposes.

Monitoring metrics

Some of the key monitoring metrics are as follows:

  • App load time: The time it takes for your app to initialize and become ready for user interaction upon launch. Faster load times lead to a better user experience.
  • API response time: The time it takes for your app to receive a response from backend services or third-party APIs. Long response times can make your app feel slow or unresponsive.
  • Frame rate: The number of frames per second rendered by your app. A low frame rate can indicate performance issues, causing a poor user experience, especially in animation-heavy or game apps.

Observability metrics

Some of the metrics for observability are as follows:

  • Error rate: The percentage of app requests that result...
