This is one of the most requested features by you guys, we’ve listened. Today we’re proud to announce that Bugfender for Android is finally here.
We have been thoroughly testing the SDK beta version for a few weeks thanks to our volunteers (thank you guys, you’re awesome!). It has worked wonders. No major issues have been found and some little ones have been ironed out.
How do I install Bugfender in my Android app?
In order to remotely fetch your Android application logs with Bugfender you only need to follow these steps:
- Sign up for a Bugfender account (bugfender.com) if you’ve not done that yet. It’s free.
- Create a new application and follow the Android instructions
- After a few seconds you should already be seeing your first log lines
- If you want, we have a sample app here: https://github.com/bugfender/BugfenderSDK-android-sample
- You can also check the SDK documentation here: http://www.javadoc.io/doc/com.bugfender.sdk/android/0.6
Is Bugfender for Android still in Beta?
Bugfender for Android is already usable for production builds, we have already some apps that are using it. Still we’re keeping it in beta until we reach the same functionality level that we’re providing in iOS.
There are a couple of things that are missing:
- A getDeviceIdentifier() method in order to know the Bugfender identifier of a device.
- The putDevice(key, value) / removeDevice(key) methods in order to associate custom data with a specific device.
