Zoho DB developer reports
AdventNet has announced that its Zoho DB & Reports tools can be used by developers of iPhone applications to translate iTunes Connect CSV files into charts and reports that offer more depth. Users can import the daily reports into a database on their Zoho accounts. The Application Daily Sales tool produces a graph that breaks the number of sales by each day. The data can be filtered to show only the downloads that have been purchased, preventing the free versions or updates from being added.
Another chart option, Daily Sales By Country, uses the country codes to divide show international purchases. The user will see the same graph as the Application Daily Sales, but each vertical bar representing a date is divided into color zones representing different countries.
The Application Sales By Country charts will show each country with its own vertical bar that reaches up to the number of units sold there, also allowing for filtering of unprofitable entries. The Application Sales By Currency tool lets users visualize how many units are sold in each type of money, also divisible by downloads from each country with the Application Sales By Currency & Country graph.
Application Sales By Royalty Price graphs show the number of units sold by each level of profit, starting with zero for free upgrades or free apps. Each bar is also broken down into the different countries. Application Total Sales is a simple way to look at the overall sales of an application.
The graphics that are created can be exported as a PDF or image, and even embedded in web pages which will automatically update the charts when new data is entered. Zoho DB and Reports can be accessed from a Zoho user account.
