SendLog

SendLog


SendLog is a diagnostic tool. It will send the log file and a process list from your phone to an email.

This is useful to send to the developer of an application in case it crashes or otherwise misbehaves.

*** It is only possible to read log files on Android version 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and later if your phone is rooted. ***

*** As of version 2.0, developers can embed SendLog into their own apps to add the ability to send logs. ***

You can choose any of the formats that logcat supports. The default and recommended format is "time".

It will add the output of "top" to the email. This shows the list of processes and the amount of CPU they are using.

You can create a home shortcut where you can specify the destination email, format and email client.

You can send to any app that supports attachments, such as Gmail, Dropbox, Skype, etc. Note that other applications such as Facebook, Twitter, etc will also be listed, but you should not choose any of these because they cannot handle attachments.

SendLog works with all Android versions and all phones and tablets. It will not truncate the log file. The log file is also stored as a text file on the root of the SD card, or the app folder if there's no SD card present.

Recent changes:
Refactored to be usable as an embeddable component in your app.

User reviews of SendLog
Used to use "Log Collector", but this app works in ICS and doesn't truncate the log. It sends the log as an attachment so doesn't stress Gmail. I don't like it prompting for log type when I'm quickly trying to grab the log, however you can create a shortcut and then you just need to submit the generated email manually, EXCELLENT!

Excellent May not need it often but awesome when you do. For those giving one star b/c of permission errors I would suggest that you read the description on the apps you install. This requires root so why would you expect it to work without???

Permission missing Do not work on my Galaxy S3. It says "has no permission to read logs". Please include the permission into your manifest file.
