We are proud to announce the new release of Bugfender. During the summer we have worked hard to make our product better. There are a lot of new features that we hope you will like. Here is a list of the most important improvements.
Early bird registration ended
We are thankful that you have been an early adopter of our tool. All your feedback is very important and in the lasts months we have been working hard to meet your needs.
The early bird offer is over, but you get an unlimited plan until the end of the year for being an early adopter.
At the end of the year, your plan will be changed automatically to our free plan and you will be able to change to a paid plan if you want.
This is the most important feature we have added in the last few months. Now you can send issues from the SDK to the server. Issues are special “sessions” that are shown on a different section in the web interface. This allows you to keep track of important issues on your app.
To send an issue from your app code, you should use the sendIssueWithTitle method:
This method will send a session to the server and create a new issue associated to this session. You can send issues anytime, you don’t need to have the device enabled on the web interface.
Now you can share apps with your co-workers. To do this, you can go to the “Teams” section and invite people to your team. As soon as you add them, they will be able to view all your apps.
Download logs to a file
Some of you have asked if you can download a text file with the logs, so you can analyze it on your preferred text editor, share it with other people or add it to services similar to Github or Bitbucket services.
Now you can do it from the log viewer, there’s a “Download file” button where you can download all the logs in a single file.
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.
So far, you had been using BFLog or BFLog2 method to send logs to our server and you should keep doing this as they are the most flexible and powerful methods to send logs to our server. But we know that sometimes you already have some NSLog calls before integrating Bugfender, so we have added a new feature that also sends the logs created by NSLog to our server.
You can enable this feature calling enableNSLogLogging method on Bugfender.
[Bugfender activateLogger:@"your_app_key"]; [Bugfender enableNSLogLogging];
New init method
We have created a new initialization method for Bugfender. The new method is called enableAllWithToken and activates Bugfender with the following features:
- Bugfender activation with app key
- Enable UI interaction logging
- Enable NSLog logging
We recommend you change the old activateLogger to enableAllWithToken so you always have all logging features of Bugfender enabled.
We’re excited by your feedback. We have tons of requests and we want to thank you for that.
These are the things we’re currently working on:
- 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.
- Issues: we have released a first version of the issues, but we will keep refining them. Currently, we are working on sending emails to you when an issue happens, so you don’t miss an issue and you can fix them as soon as possible to improve your user experience.
- 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.
Share your love for Bugfender with your friends!
