Hi All,

I am trying to implement screen tracking using the measurement protocol for the first time and I get the following response back from Google when performing a HTTP GET request:

GIF89a�����,D;

My GET requests are as follows:

v=1&tid=UA-57396443-1&cid=1234&an=Mobile+app&av=1.0.0&aid=com.myenterprise.myApp&t=screenview&cd=TitlePage&qt=193298751&sc=start&z=8501202

v=1&tid=UA-57396443-1&cid=1234&an=Mobile+app&av=1.0.0&aid=com.myenterprise.myApp&t=screenview&cd=Intro1&qt=193267065&z=1953001

v=1&tid=UA-57396443-1&cid=1234&an=Mobile+app&av=1.0.0&aid=com.myenterprise.myApp&t=screenview&cd=TitlePage&qt=193257961&sc=end&z=9035286

As you can see, my parameters include:

v
tid
cid
an
av
aid
t
cd
qt
sc
z

Has anyone seen this response before. Am I missing a parameter or passing a malformed value?

Could it be related to my user agent information?... I am implementing this tracking into the HTML of a Hybrid iOS app (HTML5 and xcode wrapper). At this point I am testing the tracking in Chrome rather than it being built into an IPA so the user agent is:

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_9_5) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/39.0.2171.71 Safari/537.36

.. Could Analytics be expecting a different user agent for the hit type screenview?

Thanks,

Rit
