aLogcat Returns Thanks to XDA Love

The developers of Android, that is Google, gave users several great debugging tools that can be used in development. The most basic (yet still quite powerful) of these is undoubtedly Android Debug Bridge, otherwise known as ADB. It’s a very handy tool that can be used by developers and regular users through USB, WiFi, or even directly on the phone.

One of the most popular ADB-based utilities for Android is aLogcat Free. This app was originally released way back in 2011. Unfortunately the developer who created the app, Jeffrey Blattman, decided to abandon his project and aLogcat Free wasn’t updated since 2012. XDA Recognized Developer pedja1 decided to give this application a second life and created a new version of the app keeping the initial open-source spirit. Now, the application has been seriously reworked and offers multiple functions that were unavailable back in the 2012 version. And as such, the list of new features is quite long.

With the new version of the app, you can search for various phrases in the log and filter the results by level and buffer. If you prefer to keep the text big or small, you can change its size really easy. The core features are also available, so you can save your logs and share them with developers later on.

The new version of the great aLogcat tool can be found in the aLogcat utility thread. Help your favorite developers squash all the bugs in your ROM or daily use applications. Send them logs collected with aLogcat!
