We are pleased to announce the release of our Android Tracker version 2.2.0.
This version reverts a breaking change introduced with the version 2.0.
The application_install event reports the time when the app has been launched for the first time after the installation.
Since the version 2.0 that timestamp is added in the
true_timestamp field of the event.
Unfortunately, we noticed that it can be cause of issues on data-modelling because the
true_timestamp is directly applied to the
derived_timestamp field and it’s not adapted to the time of the collector (
collector_timestamp). The problem is visible when the user device has the device time set on the future, because the
derived_timestamp wouldn’t be corrected and would store the application_install event as happened in the future.
Since this version, we set the
application_install timestamp in the
device_created_timestamp. In this way, a wrong time setting in the user device wouldn’t affect the correctness of the
derived_timestamp in the data model.
