Visitor Info (Device Category, Mobile, Operating System) vs Custom Variables

Mar 13, 2014 at 5:22 PM
The sample code that I used as a basis in my WP 7.1 app passes along data for Device OS and Device as custom variables.

In the Analytics interface, though, I would prefer to see this data where it belongs - in the Visitor category of fields. Analytics also doesn't seem to know that the events are coming from a mobile device at all - for the "Mobile (Including Tablet)" boolean field in Analytics.

The reason I would like this is that I also use Analytics in the same app running on iOS and Android, and Analytics has all of the device data for those apps appearing in their proper places - I don't have to use Custom Variables there. I'd like to have it consistent across the three platforms.

Thanks for any info or help!
