Twitter’s Crashlytics announced a new project called Answers by Crashlytics, described as “mobile analytics you don’t need to analyze”.

Twitter acquired Crashlytics early last year. This past May, it launched a beta testing tool, which it says can be used along with Answers to comprise a “lightweight” swuite of products to help developers build and grow their apps.

Here’s a look at the Dashboard:

The company explains the “you don’t need to analyze” thing:

Once enabled, Answers by Crashlytics intelligently analyzes and learns your app’s behavior and begins delivering live data within minutes. We know you’re busy, and we’ve built Answers with that in mind. You no longer need to don a lab coat and pull out a calculator to understand what’s going on. We look at the long-term trend and understand that there are certain metrics that are cyclical, so we’ll proactively alert you when a pattern is truly abnormal.

You’re constantly pushing out new features and bug fixes, so you’ll want to understand how your top builds compare and how users are engaging with your latest build. View build adoption over time to see the stability of each build with a breakdown of session length and crash-free users per build.

With the new offering Crashlytics aims to give developers a closer look at true user retention and app stability. More details here.
