ObjectiveMetrics is a Objective-C implementation of the desktop application analytics service DeskMetrics. You link against ObjectiveMetrics and specify what events you want to track via an intuitive API, and we take care of having them delivered to DeskMetrics, so that they'll show up on your dashboard.


  • iOS v4.3 or above. This means it will run on iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches.
  • Mac OS X 10.6 or above.
  • Xcode 4.4 or above.

There's no known reason it wouldn't work on earlier iOS versions, but it has not been tested.

Tracking events

To track any event, you need the following at the start of the file:

#import <ObjectiveMetrics/ObjectiveMetrics.h>

Or, under iOS (iPhone):

#import "DMTracker.h"

Then, anywhere you want to track an event, retrieve the DMTracker singleton instance using:

[DMTracker defaultTracker]

On this instance, you can call any number of tracking events. It is very important that you call the startWithApplicationId: method soon after your app starts. This is because it initializes the session and prepares the DMTracker for more tracking events:

[[DMTracker defaultInstance] startWithApplicationId:@"MY APP ID HERE"];

You should then call stop when your application is shutting down, to track an "app exiting" event and attempt to send the events to the server. If they can't be sent, they'll be sent the next time the application starts.

Here are the different methods you can call: (See DMTracker.h for a list that's guaranteed updated)

DMTracker *tracker = [DMTracker defaultInstance];

[tracker trackEvent:@"Event"];

[tracker trackEvent:@"Event with properties"
     withProperties:@{@"Name": @"Joe Smith"}];

[tracker trackLog:@"Time is now %@", [NSDate date]];
