While Android users in Czech, Israel, Poland, and Mexico have been happily buying apps from Google Play for some time now, up till today, devs in these countries haven't been quite so lucky. In fact, they haven't been able to publish any apps, unless they were free.

Developers, Take Note: Google Unleashes Fascinating New Android Market Statistics And Charts For Your Apps

Late last night, the Android team pushed out a set of changes to the Android app publishing interface that developers use to upload and maintain their apps. The new features, while completely invisible to the end-users, are absolutely fascinating to app developers.

Each app now has a Statistics link, which consists of the following:

  • a Google Finance-style Flash chart of all installs, the time period for which you can adjust as you see fit
  • Android versions (conveniently placed side-by-side with the same stats for all apps in the Market)
  • specific device models
  • countries where your app is downloaded from (also side-by-side with countries for all apps in the Market)
  • languages used on the phones with your app on them (also compared to the global stats)

Have a look at some screenshots, then, if you are a developer, hurry to your own publishing console and check out those sexy stats for yourself.
