Mobile analytics firm Motally has just made it a lot easier for app developers to optimize apps on the fly without the process of app re-submission thanks to their 2-Way Communication launch. Motally’s new feature empowers developers to make changes and updates to iPhone, Android, and Blackberry apps without the need to redeploy them in their respective app stores. In effect, Motally has created a dialogue between app and developers thereby decreasing time to market of improved applications based on consumer usage data.

Due to the unpredictable nature of approval systems in appstores, developers struggle to schedule and coordinate even the slightest change to their apps for fear of the lengthy response time from app-saturated appstores approvals staff. Motally addresses that concern by enabling developers to send data to back to apps already live in app stores. With the Motally’s 2-Way Communication, developers can make changes remotely to data values in previously defined fields, all from within the web interface of their Motally account.

“The app submission and resubmission process definitely can hold developers back from bringing updates to market as fast as they would like. With Motally’s 2-Way Communication feature, we are excited about providing on-the-fly adjustments to apps and believe the uninterrupted consumer experience will lead to higher engagement and usage,” says Peter Sankauskas, game developer and Software Engineer at Motally.

How it Works:

Using Motally’s 2-Way Communication, developers can instantly update or modify existing tracking parameters and the conditions under which data is sent. For example a developer can turn on debug tracking remotely to resolve bugs on the fly, without having to go through app stores’ often meticulous and lengthy approval process.

Developers can also change the values for custom fields that have been previously defined. For example, a developer can include a discount code field into an application and change the value for that code, based on a particular marketing campaign. In an effort to facilitate app localization, the new feature even allows developers to change the greeting on a text to go from "Hello" to "Hola", depending on which country the game is being accessed.
