And as a result, youll be able to see how many customers youre loosing to churn.Churn Rate - Lets you calculate the percentage of users who stopped using an app within a given period.Active Users - The active user metric is different from installation and downloads metric because it sees if users are actually using the app on a regular basis rather than just downloading it. These numbers are great for giving you a baseline understanding of your apps growth.Session Interval - This is the time between two consecutive sessions of your app and shows the frequency at which user opens and uses the app. This could be a way to measure the addictiveness because it tells how soon or not soon users are returning to your app.Session Length - Session length is the measure of the time period between the opening and closing of an app by the user, or in between the first activity and the last activity that he performs. More engagement would mean longer session durationsTime in App - This defines the time a user stays on your app. Time in the app is a function of session frequency and session length which tells how long users are staying in your app on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and similar to other mentioned metrics this also helps increase the understanding of the user behavior and app usage patterns.Stickiness - Lets you calculate how often people come back to your app. It allows you measure how the changes you bring into your product impacts your user base.Conversion - If there are any actionable features in your app like signing up, making a transaction, filling a form, giving a review, etc youll want to measure how many users are getting converted to goal target. Thus conversion rate is defined as the percentage of users who perform a set of goals or a specific goal that you want them to perform in your app.Acquisition - The number of users who download your app through specific sourceScreen Flow - See where users are when they exit, and the paths they typically take to get to conversion.There are plenty of app analytics tools, that can allow you to measure your app success.

Entering the Leaky Cauldron and realizing Harry isn't just some common boy, feeling as excited as Dedalus Diggle, as nervous as Quirrel and yet waiting for whats to come next. You can feel Harry's wonder as the bricks melt away with the touch of Hargid's wand (Shhh).Gringotts, the Apothecary, Eyelops Emporium, Ollivanders, Florean Fortescue's, Madam Malkin's, everyplace just seemed amazing and i was frantically designing the shops and the streets in my mind. That's the beauty of reading, visualizing scenes rather than just watching the director's interpretation. Diagon Alley was the first magical place we were introduced to, and it shall always hold a special place in my heart. Hogwarts may be all fancy-shmancy in its castle glory, but Diagon Alley in its hap-hazardous rustling bustling turmoil takes the cake!The concept of Gringotts makes me go Bloody hell! Hagrid surprises everyone with his knowledge concerning stalagmites and stalactites. I so wanted to take the cart ride deep into Gringotts and see the rumored dragon (which one can in a HP theme park in Florida). And the money! Galleons, sickles and the little bronze knuts. 17 sickles to a Galleon and 29 Knuts to a sickle if i'm not wrong. And the goblins, extremely creepy, but goblins! I want beetle eyes at five knuts a scoop. A scoopfull of beetle eyes could be helpful in the most unexpected of circumstances! And the solid gold cauldron. The collapsible telescope. Hagrid's such a killjoy. Curses and counter-curses by Prof Viridian, now that's a handy book to have. I wouldn't mind using the Jelly Legs Jinx on a couple of people i know! We meet all sorts of interesting and important people. Hagrid of course is easy to bump into, but apart from him we also meet Malfoy, Ollivander, Griphook, Quirrel, all who play major roles later. Malfoy shows his true colors as a prick, Griphook i found downright creepy, especially when he relished at the idea of people locked in vaults for ten years! The wand, the magical wand! Everyone was waiting for this part. The wand chooses the wizard. Simply beautiful. JKR described this part with remarkable brilliance, Mr Ollivander and his obsession with finding the perfect wand for each customer of his. I found the Voldy connection a bit too cliche though.The chapter was magic. From the moment Harry walks into the Leaky Cauldron till he returns back to the Dursleys, the chapter enchants and amazes. It provides valuable information and is the perfect beginning to the magical journey the seven books take us through!------How do libraries curate their collection?It's a huge topic - I'll focus on weeding, or why libraries keep or retire circulating items in their collections.At least in terms of weeding, technology makes it much easier.Back in the old days, librarians in public libraries had to consult the checkout cards in the pocket in the front or back of the book, coupled with personal memory. Now, most library software lets titles be sorted into lists by "Last checkout date" and/or "Number of checkouts." In this screenshot from 2005ish, the "SimTown" game has circulated 23 times in the year in question (YTDCIRCYear to Date Circulation).n nnnSo, once data is compiled, the following human elements come into play:nGenerally, if a book hasn't been checked out in X number of months or years, it will be considered for withdrawal.If a book has never circulated, and isn't a classic, there's a good chance it will be withdrawn. (Often, though, it turns out the item is missing, and that's why it never circulated.)Classics generally don't circulate well, but libraries feel a responsibility to hang onto them.Duplicate, triplicate, quadruplicate and quintuplicate copies of new bestsellers tend to get withdrawn within months.Books that were purchased as Memorials tend to be kept regardless of circulation statistics.Books that are damaged (falling apart at the spine, vandalized, waterlogged, etc.) get withdrawn and usually replaced.Anything of local interest or written by a local author is retained as long as possible.Multi-volume sets such as encyclopedias are generally being retired in favor of their electronic counterparts. Often libraries in a geographic area will pool their resources to purchase the required license.Technology - such as software like the game in the sample -- and computer/Internet-related books go out of date very quickly. nnIn addition, shelfloads of obsolete items such as videotapes and audiocassettes are (reluctantly) being retired because fewer people have the devices to play them on; old VCRs and Walkmans can't be repaired, or even bought new. Some large libraries, however, still have extensive collections even of vinyl records, along with devices that play them, at least for in-library use.Libraries also aren't ordering quite as many extra copies of the latest by bestselling authors; many patrons who don't want to wait a few weeks for their names to come to the top of the reservation list to read a new bestseller can download it to their devices instantly.Others, I'm sure, can provide details on how technology in particular is changing library curation. This is how it has affected (and not affected) the weeding process.
