Chartbeat vs Mixpanel in our news:

2015. Mixpanel introduced codeless mobile analytics



Mobile analytics service Mixpanel unveiled a new feature that should make it easier for mobile businesses to customize the company’s analytics tools without writing any additional code. With Codeless Mobile Analytics, customers can use a point-and-click interface to identify the interactions that they want to track in their Android or iOS app. And after the Mixpanel SDK has been installed, any additional changes will go live without an App Store update or approval. So now optimization, testing and marketing teams can adjust app analytics dashboard without having to ask for help from their developers.


2014. Chartbeat wants web analytics standards to be open



Real-Time web analytics service Chartbeat is making public all of the metrics, standards and methods of measurement it uses internally — including a detailed breakdown of their weaknesses and limitations. Chartbeat CEO Tony Haile says the web-measurement and analytics market is still too full of black-box style tricks and smoke and mirrors, so he is making his company’s entire measurement process and methods public in the hope that others will do likewise. Historically, measurement and analytics companies have kept their methods to themselves as much as possible, and so have the media and publishing companies that make up most of their clients.


2014. Mixpanel adds mobile A/B testing to its analytics platform


Web and mobile analytics servise Mixpanel is launching a new feature today for mobile developers who want to test out different variations of their app. Making changes to the app is pretty simple. If you want to move a button, just drag the button. And doing something a little more sophisticated, namely changing in-game physics, was still relatively quick. That simplicity is important, because marketers and product managers and non-engineers want to be able to use these products, too — if they have a promising idea, it’s easier if that don’t have to go through a developer to test it. In addition, the A/B testing service ties into Mixpanel’s analytics platform, particularly the data that focuses on individual users. That makes it easier to test changes with specific groups of users.
