    Link to consentricksky is incorrect above. It has the wordpress link behind it.

    Also just purchased Analyticsapp only to find it isn’t working at the moment and they are waiting on apple to approve the new version. Looking forward to using it when it is sorted.

    Good article though. Very useful. Thanks

    Thanks for the heads up on the link, it has now been updated. The ‘Analyticsapp’ has a notice at the top of the product descriptionin the app store about that, and hopefully it should be updated soon.

    Just to reiterate Matt’s response, I also follow AnalyticsApp on Twitter:

    The release should be any day now once Apple have approved the fix, then everything will be working again!

    Can’t recommend AnalyticsApp enough if you’re into your stats! 🙂

    To be fair to AnalyticsApp they did offer a refund but as it is expected to be fixed very soon I declined.

    Looking forward to giving it a go.

    Some great apps there thank you! My iPhone screen is a little more cluttered now, thanks!

    Slightly disappointed when I saw the Heart Internet “app”, I was expecting a downloadable app not just a mobile-optimised website, but still, better than trying to access it via full browser.

    Downloading apps can become addictive, I had to have a purge of apps over the weekend to get my pages down. I suppose we have been a bit loose with the term ‘app’ but you can save a Heart Internet icon to your iPhone home page by clicking on the plus sign at the bottom of your browser and then choosing “Add to home screen”.
