Twitter's Fabric developer kits have been around for about a year and a half at this point, but in the early months of 2016, Twitter is giving developers some helpful components for using Fabric.

In February, the company introduced the Fabric mobile app. This lets you keep an eye on what's happening with your apps and get notifications when something important happens. This week, the company unveiled the Fabric Mission Control dashboard, which it dubs "the pulse of all your apps on a single, intuitive dashboard."

"When key information about your apps lives across different dashboards, it’s hard for the team to have the context they need to make the best decisions," says product manager Meekal Bajaj. "While Fabric today gives you the #1 crash reporting and mobile analytics tools that show you the pulse of your apps, those insights live on different dashboards on We wanted to take that experience to a whole new level."

With the dashboard, you can jump right to critical issues or see a summary of how your top app is performing. You can see how well-tested your beta i as soon as you open the dashboard.

"Fabric lets you decide which apps you want to focus on, and in which order on mission control. Simply favorite an app to pin it to the top or reorder your apps so that the most important ones are the first you see," says Bajaj. "You can also easily locate an app or a number of apps via the search bar built right into your mission control. When searching, we filter the list in real-time to only show the apps that match what you are looking for. Clicking on each metric takes you directly to the details you need."

Twitter said on Wednesday it would roll out to access to Mission Control over the coming days. It will be automatically set as your default starting page from once you enable it.
