Google updated how the ga:visitors metric worked on Jan 25, 2011. This tool unfortunately still returns totals the old way.

The old way was to take the unique visitors for each day, then simply add those totals up to get unique visitors for other time ranges (eg. Month) This is inaccurate.

The updated api now returns a proper unique visitors stat, over whatever timeframe is specified.

You can view the change here:

I messaged the creator of this app, and he indicated that he plans to update within the next couple months, time permitting. I suspect this issue will one of the ones addressed.
