CatLog Turns Holo Thanks to Unofficial Modification

CatLog Turns Holo Thanks to Unofficial Modification

What ties together logcat and Holo UI? Possibly not much, as logcat is just a output of hundreds of processes running deep inside the phone, and Holo is an Android UI paradigm present since Honeycomb. It’s hard to find a connection between these two things, but there is one: a holo-fied logcat application made by XDA Recognized Contributor Quinny899.

The application doesn’t differ greatly from the original CatLog, but a few things have been changed to make the application even more efficient. The top search and action bar were removedm, and ActionView method was replaced by ActionBar. The application was heavily redesigned in terms of UI and looks in order to be totally different from its predecessor. Logs are now presented in the dark Holo style. Even the app’s themes were redesigned.

Holofied CatLog becomes one of the most interesting and good looking applications for debugging on Android devices. If you are not familiar with the ADB version of tool, this application is a must-have on your phone.

Is your phone is unresponsive or buggy? Help the developer of your ROM by posting a logcat. And if you need help doing so, CatLog is a tool for you. The application can be found in the original thread, and should work with Android 3.0 or greater.
