We have released two new endpoints in support of location triggers for Automation. The Region Listing and Region Lookup APIs let you easily query all of your defined regions and associated details such as creation date, lat/long, and region attributes. If you’re not familiar with region attributes, take a look at Region Attributes from our August 2016 release notes for an overview and examples.
We are thrilled to announce the public beta for the first feature in our new Predictive Analytics toolset: Predictive Churn. In our private beta release in late 2016, we introduced the concept of churn as the likelihood that an app user will become inactive. In this public beta release, we are providing full support for predictive churn tags for targeting and automation via Engage, analysis via Insight, and data export via Connect.
What are Ad IDs? Ad IDs are user-level IDs that are the same for a user over multiple apps on their device. They allow marketers to send content and ads to users that have not limited their ad tracking. Other services such as Facebook and Twitter capture the same Ad ID and have ad platforms to target specific users based on Ad IDs. This topic guide covers use cases and technical details on how to send Urban Airship Ad IDs so you can begin to optimize your user acquisition and re-marketing campaigns.
At Urban Airship, we provide our customers with tools for every step of the customer lifecycle, from user acquisition to conversion to engagement to retention. This topic guide focuses on user retention, specifically, identifying the risk factors in your user base that lead to attrition, or churn. Churn is a natural component of mobile engagement ebb and flow, and while a certain amount of churn is normal and healthy, there are ways to identify churn risk factors and mitigate the erosion of your user base with corrective action.
