If you don't use Google Analytics for your site analytics solution, then either you have something that you're paying for (which is okay if it's not actually YOU paying for it), or you're using something else that's not very good.

I like Analytics because it is super easy to install, very fast, and provides some seriously robust statistics for free–tough to beat that.

Well, today I ran across a really cool application that is being developed to bring Analytics to the desktop.

Currently, this application is only in beta, but it has a lot of promise.  Even with the limited suite of services being offered in the current version, Google Analytics for AIR delivers strongly.

One of the really nice features of this application is that it is super-fast, which is more than can be said for the web interface.  Additionally, everything is laid out very intuitively, so there is not really any adjustment needed to transition from the web interface.

The only criticism I would have at this stage is that the interface itself is really BLUE.  This is a minor criticism, of course, but I would like to see more white rather than blue.  Picky, huh?

Anyway, if you use Analytics, check this out–I think it is a very promising app and should add to the time-saving AIR applications that are being rapidly developed.
