Amazon Cognito makes it easy to save user data, such as app preferences or game state, in the AWS Cloud without writing any backend code or managing any infrastructure.

You can also synchronize data across a user’s devices so that their app experience will be consistent regardless of the device they use. With Amazon Cognito, you can focus on creating great app experiences instead of having to worry about building and managing a backend solution to handle identity management, network state, storage, and sync.

Amazon Mobile Analytics is a service that lets you simply and cost effectively collect and analyze your application usage data.

While many mobile app analytics solutions deliver data several hours after the events occur, Amazon Mobile Analytics is designed to process and export your application event data within 60 minutes so that you can act on your data quickly.
