Don’t Know How to Logcat? Try Logcat Tool

As we’ve discussed before, logcats can be invaluable to all development. It lets developers know what isn’t working, why it isn’t working, and allows them to take a more targeted approach to fixing such problems. The only issue is that many users who test software don’t know how to pull a logcat. There are some tools available out there to help simplify the process, but the more the merrier.

With that, Logcat Tool was born. Inspired by the post made by XDA Forum Moderator paxChristos, which is reachable via the link above, XDA Forum Member FuzzyMeep Two has developed a little app that will pull a logcat for you. This, along with the already existing apps that do the same thing, gives users even more options to get logcats and help their favorite developers out with debugging.

The tool is pretty simple to use. Upon opening, users are asked to input the path to their Android SDK. Afterward there’s a simple menu set up with several options on pulling and storing logcats.

For additional information and download links, check out the original thread.

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
