Remote LogCat

Remote LogCat


View Android device logfile from browser.

Users can use this app to check the status of remote android devices (like webcams). Or to follow with their PC what is going on with their device (no more complicated sdk/adb setup required!). No root required. Help developers to track down bugs by sending logfiles with your error reports. When sharing logfiles: please check if they contain any private data!

Developers debugging remote apps without computer connection can use this to monitor their app. Also they can use an easy Intent (com.dngames.remotelogcat.LOG) or send SMS to get a logfile via this app. You can also just add an Thread.setDefaultUncaughtExceptionHandler(...); to your app and then log with a remotelogcat.LOG Intent if it is installed. So no need to include libs like ACRA in your APP if you want to debug only sometimes.

Mobile data connection debugging is now possible, but without WIFI connection you need your own server with PHP or my app AutoShare to publish the logfiles.

This is intended to run in the background to debug other apps - to stop the background service please disable it in the settings!

Recent changes:
+ txt file instead of jpg for sdcard save

+ crash fixes, stripped html from log
+ out of memory catch
+ stop service, ipv4 adress
+ faster logview (fast scroll!)
+ jump to error
+ clear

Nicer log filtering and web interface later.

Use as a last resort only... Works well enough, for newer roms you will need to grant the app READ_LOGS perms most likely or install as system app, etc The biggest drawback is that it can't be stopped/killed, so consider it a last resort, as you will need to reboot to stop this app from running. Alternative remote option is Loggy, or for a good basic app CatLog or aLogcat
