Log Viewer (logcat)

Log Viewer (logcat)


View and share your device's system log. The system log (also called "logcat") contains many useful information regarding what the applications and the Android OS are performing in your phone or other devices.

Note: This app doesn't work any more on Jelly Bean devices, because since Jelly Bean, an app can only collect log messages originating from itself. If you can move this app into a System app (for example using Titanium Backup) then this app will be able to view all log entries again.

Includes a button to zip the log files, together with information about your device's hardware build and software version. You can send the zipped file by email, bluetooth, or other means, depending on your installed applications.

This will be useful for both normal users and software developers. If an application behaves abnormally or crashes, run Log Viewer as soon as possible, and send the device logs to the developers!

STEPS FOR SENDING LOGS TO APPLICATION DEVELOPERS WHEN SOMETHING GOES WRONG:
1. Run the application and crash it or make it behave unlike what you expect.
2. As soon as possible, run Log Viewer.
3. Click "Read logs"
4. Click "Send" and send the zip file to them.

This app is completely free without any advertisements or in-app payments.

Was expecting a program that I could read .log mIRC files with. However, it earns 2 stars because it does do its described job.

Good job I was looking for something to help trace bugs for my own development. Does exactly what it should. Some sort of filter would be nice. But I really can't complain.

Not useful as is After clicking Read Logs there was a constant stream of a single event, which seemed to be valid, but of no interest. In order to be useful there must be a method to select which log to view and to filter messages being displayed.
