Mobile analytics firm Distimo has launched a free iOS app that makes it easier to track app metrics and rankings. In order to use the app, users need at least a free Distimo account. Those with a paid account will be able to see their app statistics, like downloads, purchases, revenue and ranking, as well as competitive intelligence.
While the Distimo app is primarily targeted at mobile development firms, anyone can use the app to access Distimo's leaderboard. That will give industry analysts, venture capitalists and journalists access to filterable data that they can't get directly from the app stores.
According to Distimo, developers use its services to monitor the performance of more than 260,000 apps.
