Logcat No More Thanks to Log This
Logcat is an unquestionably important tool. Not only do logs help end-users figure out what’s going wrong with their Android-powered smart phones, but they also help developers figure out what’s going wrong with end-users’ smart phones. Unfortunately, many of the same users who experience issues either don’t have the SDK installed or don’t know how to get started.
In order to alleviate this issue, XDA forum member Mgamerz has created Log This, a user-friendly debug application. By providing a simple-to-use GUI, Log This allows even the most inexperienced Android users to generate error logs. In the words of the developer:
I know there is an app called Log Collector already but I want to create some additional features.
Some new features that will be coming soon:
- Three Click Logs – click on a file, accept the preview, click send. (file association)
- Kernel Logs by themselves.
I plan to update it with more features soon… An idea I have is that it will auto-run when a user opens a file (like how a .doc file can open quickword, for example) that will auto fill both fields and fill out the email information – but it will /never/ auto send (that’s a violation of trust)
Continue on to the application thread. Developers take note, as this will probably be instrumental in saving headaches down the line.

While last year the company focused on gathering partnerships and strengthening up their services, architectures and production, now they are revamping their Atom line of SoCs for mobile with a new brand name and a distinctive category format much like that of their i3/i5/i7 line of personal computing processors. The new scheme will be naming the chips x3, x5...
