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.

Which OEM Would You Like to Help?

Most manufacturers have moments of greatness and moments of decadence, and in the past few years we've some of our favorite companies' tables turned. Some are stagnating, some are struggling, some lack direction. Despite this, we often hold them dear to our hearts. Many of them could use a hand, be it with design, marketing, or other tasks.

Root T-Mobile S6/Edge on 5.1.1 Without Tripping Knox

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
