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.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
