Can you share some usage stats with the community?

With an app apparently on the horizon, it would be interesting to see some usage stats from the community.

How many folks strictly use the current webpage on PC vs on mobile?

What does that usage look like?

Where do users go first when they login on each platform?

How many users appear to login for a specific purpose other than completing reviews on each platform?

How long are the sessions on each platform?

How many reviews are completed on each platform?

How many reviews per user are completed on each platform?

I'm sure there are lot more insightful questions that could be raised here and I'd love to know what sort of data Niantic has collected around this usage that drove the decision to make an app.

    I log in on mobile all the time. I don’t think I’ve ever done a review on mobile and I don’t think I ever will. I do edit nominations on mobile sometimes.

    Both reviewing and editing are significantly easier at a computer. It’s highly likely that the majority of my usage would show up as being on a mobile device, but my most important usage happens on a computer.

    I would love answers to these questions. I love numbers, and testing websites and processes. I hope Niantic has already explored each of them internally.

    But business-wise, Niantic has no business reason to give away their internal business numbers, decisions, and practices. For one thing, they're not up for debate. If they decide to do X, they are not open to us saying Y, Z, A, and B would be better. It's not a democracy. For another thing, Niantic doesn't want other businesses to profit from Niantic's work.

    If you can think of a reason that sharing that data would help Niantic - that would make it more likely to answer. What's in it for them?
