Web-Based Tool to Format and Filter Logcats

If you’ve ever pulled a logcat to help a developer find and fix an issue, you might have done so in one of several ways. There are numerous applications out there that allow you to generate logs quickly, easily, and usually with some degree of formatting and/or filtering. However, log files exported from Catlog, which seems to be a popular choice for people sending logs to developers, aren’t always easy to look at and sift through—especially for those who may not have a great deal of experience.

It’s for this very reason that XDA Forum Member Bikonja put together a simple web-based tool that takes a raw logcat and automatically adds formatting, highlighting, and filtering. Simply paste the text and select the desired options to reformat and filter as required. The tool is currently set to expect logs from Catlog but as Bikonja himself says,

It’s purely Javascript (with jQuery) and CSS based so it’s even easy to pick up the source and modify (I’ve conveniently put all the CSS and JS within the div with the id “content.”

This should make it fairly simple for somebody to adapt to handle a wider range of input if needed. Check out the forum thread for more information and a link to the tool itself.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets.
