Capture Network Traffic on Android – Updated

Capture Network Traffic on Android – Updated

A few months ago, we wrote about AndroShark, an application developed by XDA forum member jcase.  The primary function of the Android app is to capture network traffic on your Android mobile device.

It stirred up a lot of interest and members suggested more features and developments. In fact XDA forum member ex87 liked the tool so much that the dev decided to improve on the application, partly due to the fact that there have been no new releases and the existing version of AndroShark was due to expire.

ex87 has developed two application based off AndroShark. The first is ‘Shark for Root’, which is now at version 0.9.8 and is an alternative of AndroShark.   The second is ‘SharkReader’ at version 0.1.4, which provides the feature of users being able to see packets on the device.

To try out the apks, and provide feedback, visit the application thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
