With the recent release of an updated Jelly Bean version, i.e, 4.2, there have been quite some new things to awe you.
These are two things that could probably make a developers life easier.
- Take bug report — immediately takes a screen shot and dumps device state information to local file storage, then attaches them to a new outgoing email message.
- Power menu bug reports — Adds a new option to the device power menu and quick settings to take a bug report (see above).
Remember, while you were testing your app on a bus, or you were away from your desktop/laptop and got a dreaded crash!! You, so eagerly want to have a look at the logcat, or even save the logcat output for later investigation. And most of the times, I don’t have SendLog, which I could fire up, and send me the logs.
With 4.2, it’s already built-in to your phone. Here are a few screenshots, that give you an idea.
Enable this option from the Settings Page.
Hold the power button, to see the option to capture a “Bug Report”
