You can See your Google analytics data From your desktop Using the Polaris Adobe Air App. Google has announced a Google Analytics Data Export API which makes Polaris the easiest way to keep an Eye on Your Analytics Data.
I Just love The Interface and Simplicity of the App that neatly presents your analytics data .This Solves the problem of logging in to Your analytics account every Now and then or Keeping it open In a New Tab.Here is what Polaris has to offer :
The Dashboard In Polaris
The dashboard Shows you Number of Visits ,Bounce rate The Number Of page views ,Percentage of New Visitors and The average time on site.In Fact it is Quite the same when you login to Your Google analytics account In a Browser.
