Logcat Tool Receives Major Update

A few years ago, we started talking about the importance of the always necessary (and not always easy to read) logcat. This happens to be a rather important tool for both developers as well as for users. Developers will normally use the data contained within these logs to troubleshoot and fix issues within their Android builds. However, it is not always easy to look for the necessary information to provide to our devs, particularly for those without much coding skills. For the untrained eye, a logcat will look like a bunch of non-sense. So, in order to aide people who are on xda to help others, XDA Forum Member FuzzyMeep Two took the time to prepare a tool specifically aimed at those who want to learn to understand development, but more importantly, bug reporting.

This is not Logcat Tool’s first appearance on the Portal, but it certainly packs a lot of updates. After all, it has been nearly 2 years since the last write up. Lucky for us, the dev has no been slacking off either. He has maintained the application by updating it even more–all the way to v 4.00. You can read the previous updates in the changelog whenever you have a chance. However, the big star on today’s show is the app’s new ability to “super parse.” What this means is that it will effectively organize the logcat into parts. All the different files will go into separate categories for each type of entry generated by the logcat.

Some features including the aforementioned super parse are still in development, so please make sure that you use it and if you find bugs, please get in touch with the developer.

I have made a tool to simplify Logcat creation for people. The creation of this tool was inspired, and guided, by the thread started HERE by paxChristos.

You can find more information in the original thread.
