View Device Logs from Your Browser

If you frequently use logcats—either for development or reporting bugs—you are already familiar with how troublesome they are to retrieve. We previously covered an innovative and tablet-optimized method of viewing logs locally. Now, XDA Senior Member _miha_ has developed an app to make the process even easier by allowing logs to be viewed via web browser.

Remote Logcat does as its name implies, and allows you to view your Android device logs through an internet browser, either in real time or by viewing previously created logs. This eliminates the need for USB cables and an SDK / ADB setup. Furthermore, it doesn’t even require root access. The application also allows you to send apk files directly to the device to update apps. The app is perfect for developers who may not be at home and wish to get a little debugging done, and users looking for an easy way of creating logs. However, the developer does mention that log filtering is currently somewhat cumbersome.

Other features of the application include;

  • Trigger logging by intent
  • Trigger logging by SMS when no internet connection is available
  • Save logs to SD card or share via the web/email*

*Sharing feature requires another of the developers free applications, Autoshare.

The app is freely available from the original thread, and requires Android 1.5 or greater.

ZenFone 2 Lolliflash and ZenPower Giveaway!

We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device.
