We are proud to announce we just updated the Bugfender web console, give it a look.
In this June 2015 update we worked very hard to get you the best experience possible, we’ve listened to you. Here is a list of the most important improvements.
Better navigation in the web console
You can now apply filters that help you find devices and sessions for more easily. You can filter by version, device type, date or just free text. Also you can Ctrl-click (or Cmd-click if you’re a Mac user) on anything to open new tabs.
Enable all devices
This feature allows you to enable logging in all devices simultaneously, very useful for applications in beta phase. We had it since some weeks ago but we improved its usability, check it out.
More reachable customer support
We’re reachable via e-mail and the Support tab in our website, and we just added chat. It’s important for us to be near you!
SDK log synchronization options
The newest iOS SDK (version 0.3.5) sends logs at regular time intervals instead of based on log size. This improves the time until you see log lines in the Bugfender web console and reduces battery usage in some applications.
Send logs from the device
We included a new feature to enable synchronization from the device. Say you detect an error condition and want to report it to Bugfender, you can send the logs even if the device is disabled in the Bugfender console. Check out forceSendOnce and forceEnabled:.
What Are 1000 Apps Doing to Reduce Their Bugs to Zero?
Down to Zero is a practical guide to solving bugs. Our team has been developing mobile apps for over a decade and we'd like to share some tips we've picked up along the way.
User interaction logging
You can have Bugfender log automatically all user interactions. Automated logs are useful to gain context when you don’t have logs in place that explain what the application is doing all the time. Just call enableUIEventLogging when setting up Bugfender.
We’re excited by your response. We have tons of requests and we want to thank you for that.
These are the things we’re currently working on:
- Issues: you will have the possibility to report issues from within the SDK. This can be useful for crashes, conditions you assert in your code or user-generated reports. We are excited to see what you are going to build with it.
- Device associated data: you will be able to add data to a user’s device. This way you will be able to set a user identifier or e-mail address and it will show up in the Bugfender console.
- Android: this is by far the most requested feature. We’re working on it, but we wanted to fine-tune the iOS SDK before releasing two platforms at the same time.
