With Monitoring of Native Mobile Apps, New Relic Delivers Another Industry First

New Relic for Mobile Apps Fills Critical Need by Putting an End to Era of Zero Visibility

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/14/13 -- New Relic Inc., the SaaS-based application management provider, is enabling the business success of the mobile app industry with New Relic for Mobile Apps, a first-of-its kind service now available for any business striving to achieve rave customer reviews and 5-star ratings in app stores. The new addition to the New Relic world-class web app, real user and server monitoring service extends its in-depth visibility capability to the performance of Android and Apple iOS mobile applications. Ideal for enterprise, mobile commerce or consumer applications, New Relic for Mobile Apps will allow app developers to see exactly what their mobile users are experiencing to ensure high customer satisfaction. In a separate press release, New Relic is also announcing new strategic partnerships with leading mobile service and platform providers.

The mobile app market is projected to top 89 billion downloads by 2015 and it is expected that half of all payments will be transacted via mobile by 2020 (1). Although millions of dollars are being poured into mobile applications, app developers and line of business managers had no actionable insight into the performance of the apps that deliver key services. With multiple points of possible failure -- whether deep within the application code, in the mobile device or in calls to third party APIs, such as Facebook, PayPal and Twitter -- mobile businesses could only guess at the quality of the user experience and the precise location of performance bottlenecks.

New Relic for Mobile Apps is intuitive, easy to deploy, and offered as both a free service and an affordable monthly subscription. New Relic for Mobile Apps is integrated with the flagship New Relic web app service, which is used by hundreds of thousands of developers worldwide. The new mobile app service shares the same single screen view, making New Relic's combined mobile app and web app service the only solution to monitor software, no matter where it's running in an app server, browser, or mobile device.

  • Customers who deploy their mobile apps through a New Relic partner cloud provider will find it available in their app marketplace With the New Relic for Mobile Apps offering, customers get:

  • Support for both iOS and Android mobile apps
  • End-to-end visibility, from the individual mobile device to backend web services
  • Insight and actionable data from real app users and sessions to see exactly what the users are experiencing
  • The ability to monitor HTTP app errors and performance problems, which are as bad (or worse) than crashes

  • Constant monitoring of the health of external services that apps depend upon for success
