This is a guest blog post from Bill Hodak, Director of Product Marketing at New Relic[1], a SaaS-based application management provider and a Rackspace Cloud Tools[2] partner.

If you’re a mobile app developer, you know the challenges of getting your app to market[3]. With over 1.5 million available apps in the Apple App Store and Google Play alone, the competition for user adoption is fierce. The difference between a successful app and one that fails can come down to speed to market, application performance and a high quality user experience.

You need a way to have actionable insight into the performance of your apps. With multiple points of possible failure, whether deep within the application code, in the mobile device itself, or in calls to third party APIs such as Facebook, PayPal and Twitter, you can only guess at the quality of the user experience and the precise location of performance bottlenecks.

New Relic for Mobile Apps[4] changes that by providing real-time performance data for your native iOS and Android mobile applications so you have in-depth insight into real users, sessions and finger swipes as they happen.

With New Relic for Native Mobile Apps, you can:

New Relic for Mobile Apps is deeply integrated with New Relic for web and mobile browser applications. It shares the same one-screen view, allowing you to monitor software no matter where it’s running in an app server, browser or mobile device.
