Great question. There are a growing number of analytics services for mobile apps.  I’ll start by listing the ones I know about.

Flurry
http://www.flurry.com/

AdMob
http://analytics.admob.com/home/

Mixpanel
http://mixpanel.com/

Localytics
http://www.localytics.com

Bango
http://bango.com/mobileanalytics/

Medialets
http://www.medialets.com/

Appclix

Google Analytics
http://www.google.com/analytics/

BuzzBox

Apsalar

As you can see, there are a lot of choices.  That said, the general consensus seems to be that both Flurry and AdMob will do the job. I’d recommend starting with one of them, and if you’re dissatisfied, you can begin to explore some of the others.
