Trust: Event Logger Helps You Find the Problem

We’ve spent the last few weeks telling you about logcat. This includes what it is and why it’s useful, as well as some apps to help make it easier. Since logs are always important in finding bugs and fixing them, it’s in the best interest of anyone troubleshooting a problem to have access to logs. Now, there’s an application available that will keep logs of practically everything going on with your device.

Developed by XDA Recognized Developer Dark3n, the application is called Trust: Event Logger. Trust keeps track of almost any important action on your device to help with troubleshooting a number of issues. A few of the things this app will monitor includes:

Installed/deleted/replaced/restartet/cleared apps
Power connect/disconnect
Shutdowns/Boots
Screen on/off events
Lockscreen events
Loss of wifi/cell connectivity
Removed media
Calls

This can help track down any number of issues, especially on devices that frequently lose WiFi or cell signal. Those kinds of issues are surprisingly common. The only issue with the application is that it only shows the last 24 hours of activities. This is probably good for your storage space, but may not help if you’re investigating a problem long term.

To learn more, check out the application thread.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
