Google's single biggest source of revenue is advertisements. The AdSense platform is a big part of that, allowing web content owners to manage their Google ads, revenue, and monitor performance. It's safe to say that, for Google, AdSense is a hugely important product. A hugely important product that didn't have an Android app until today, which is kind of weird!

The AdSense app will allow you to access information about revenue, top custom and URL channels, your ad units, various reports, and payment alerts. While it doesn't sound like it will let you to actually do much with AdSense from your phone, it does give you a bunch of useful stats and readouts that were previously a bit of a pain in the butt to access on mobile. Head to the Play Store to get the app now.

The app has some really wacky device compatibility at the moment (most tablets and some recent phones aren't compatible, though the Nexus 10 and the 2013 Nexus 7 are), so you may not be able to get it just yet.

Update #1: Unfortunately, there is no widget to be found. Bummer - it would have been immensely useful. Perhaps in an upcoming update?

Update #2: Those of you with incompatible devices can try to sideload the APK. We've confirmed that while it doesn't seem to be too optimized for tablets, it still works well.

    Not compatible with my Nexus 7, what?

    Two words. Yes and Fuck. Arrange them in the right order, and they'll convey the level of my excitement. Words may be repeated. Go.

    P.S. Not shown is the settings page which allows for auto-refresh of data with any time period, even 1 minute (15 min default).

    No tablet compatibility? Meh, time to extract it from my phone. Edit: http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23060877489997320.

    Now if I could run Analytics and this app on my tablet side-by-side, I could die happy. Wait, wasn't there that one app that can Floatify any app? Let's see. Edit: Crap, it was just for widgets http://www.androidpolice.com/2012/04/24/review-floating-widget-brings-widgets-to-the-foreground-but-comes-with-tradeoffs/. Now to see if this app has widgets. Edit: Nope, no widgets.

      It let me install on my Nexus 10 from the play store..

        You're right, it looks to be compatible with very select tablets, but not most. I've updated the post.

      It's funny to read all this dialog with yourself :)

    Doesn't work on the HTC One, fail. Anybody got the apk?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      Or the GS4. Or the Optimus G Pro. Or the Xperia ZL.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      I'll upload it. Hang on.

      Yeah, no GS4, no One, no G Pro, no ZL. Lame.

      • http://www.Nave360.com Sebastian Gorgon

        Awesome, thanks!

      • Ror

        Considering the One and GS4 are also sold as Google Editions that seems like a major oversight.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      No tablet compatibility and not compatible with the One. I posted a mirror, try it out.

      • TechGuy22

        WORKED ON HTC ONE. thanks

  • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

    Just tried it, works just fine on a tablet (TF300). The UI is not optimized for tablets, but it works great. Nice, big font.

  • exxe

    Good, but AdWords app would be even better (and that is main income source for G, but no app yet)...

    And new Analitics app is nice (UI wise) but sux overall, older app was much more flexible..

  • http://katzmatt.com/ Matt Katzenberger

    Sweet! Now if they could just put out an app for the Android Dev Console...

  • sivkai

    I almost read that as "Google Releases Official Adblock App For Android" :o

  • Kurt

    Did anyone else try loading kittens, puppies, or bunnies.adsense.com or am I the only one?

  • vgggv

    No admob

  • PhineasJW

    Can someone confirm?

    Does AdSense on Android only pay per click, or does it also pay something per impression?
