Beta

The AppsFlyer destination is in open beta, and is still in active development. If you have any feedback to help improve the AppsFlyer destination and its documentation, contact your AppsFlyer CSM or send an email to hello@appsflyer.com.

Considerations

  • You must define a separate data destination in Amplitude for each app for which you are syncing data to AppsFlyer. For example, if you have an Android and an iOS app, you need to create two destinations in Amplitude: one for the Android app, and one for the iOS app.
