Take Logging to the Next Level with Logcat Extreme

As we’ve mentioned before, there are no shortage of options available when it comes to logging what your device is doing. Whether it’s for the purpose of debugging or reporting an issue and you want to grab a log via PC or straight from the device, your options are myriad. If you prefer to use an application on the device itself to see exactly what’s going on, here’s a little something that you might just want to check out.

Logcat Extreme, by XDA Recognized Developer xdaid is an Android-based logcat tool that brings a few extra things to the table. It offers all of the features you would expect as standard such as live viewing with the ability to pause / resume / record, sharing logs, filtering, log searching, and kernel debug message viewing. Logcat Extreme also has a couple of useful features that you might not expect. The first is aimed at developers and allows them to trigger the application via the Android intent system, directly from their applications. The second allows you to float the logcat over whatever you are currently doing, in it’s own separate and resizable window, while still being able to quickly and easily adjust the settings on the fly.

If this sounds like it might be of use to you, head on over to the application thread for more information.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
