Guide to Help Debug Your Apps

So you just finished writing that app that’s consumed the majority of your time for the better part of the last year. You have the UI just the way you like it, and now you’re finally ready to do some testing before you release it into the wild.

Right before you release your app, however, your beta testers run into some app crashes. You have them take logs so that you can get a better idea of what’s going on, but unfortunately, you’re still a bit lost. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a guide thread that showed you how to read a logcat and use other debugging tools?

Well, thankfully there is just such a guide, and it comes from XDA Senior Member nikwen. The guide is far reaching, as it covers Logcat, using toast messages to debug, the Eclipse debugger, AVDs, and more. Spanning nine posts, each one of the tools is explained in great detail and with plenty of screenshots.

Those looking to get started can do so by visiting the guide thread.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
