Understanding the health of your mobile app empowers your team to make smarter and more efficient choices with each new version. To track changes in your mobile app, New Relic provides version trend data in the mobile monitoring UI. Here you can compare performance across the most recent versions of your mobile app using the version trends report. You have access to the key data points you need to analyze the impact of improvements, fixes, and degradations for each version. You can compare usage, adoption, and technical metrics.
To collect version trend information for your mobile app, make sure your agent version is:
- New Relic mobile agent for Android agent v6.5.0 or higher
- New Relic mobile agent for iOS agent v7.0.0 or higher
