Simplify Logging with AIO Logcat Manager
If you’ve ever spent any amount of time using a beta version of an application or flashing the latest “bleeding edge” firmwares to your device, it is highly likely that you will have been asked to submit a logcat when reporting a bug. In fact some would say that you haven’t actually reported a bug until you have submitted a logcat.
While pulling a log and sending it on to a developer is not a difficult process, it can be cumbersome enough to discourage people from coming up with the relevant reports. This can be particularly frustrating for a developer if they are unable to reproduce the bug themselves. XDA Recognized Themer majdinj put together a Windows-based tool called AIO Logcat Manager, which makes the process simple and manageable for everyone from experienced users to those pulling their first log.
AIO Logcat Manager allows you to select from various types of logs to record, from a complete rundown of the system, error/fatal level, radio, kernel and process specific logcats. This allows you to quickly and easily filter the specific information you require. You are also able to collect the reports to a specific location and view them directly from the utility itself.
