With Google announcing full support for Kotlin on Android, we’ve created a sample project for you to get started with Bugfender and Kotlin.
Last but not least, we’ve been improving things under the hood.

Featured Article: Kotlin for Android Development
Is the hype over Kotlin justified? There was just as much excitement over Swift, but many think the language isn’t ready and haven’t used it as a result.

Featured Article: What Not to Log When Remotely Debugging Apps
Despite our love for logging, there are some things are simply too sensitive to log, and others that are subject to privacy or security regulations (like medical information or credit cards).
In this article we’ll cover what not to log and provide some alternatives and workarounds to help with debugging sensitive info.
Featured Article: Five Years of Mobile Jazz – Why We Don’t Want to Be Google
Bugfender started out as an experiment within our devshop Mobile Jazz. We’ve recently celebrated it’s 5th anniversary and we thought this would be a good time to look back to where it all started, the culture we’ve worked hard to maintain and the products we have planned for the future.
Success Story: Blast Motion – Advanced Logging to Help Advanced Athletes
Blast Motion is one of those companies that’s so cool you can’t help but brag that they are your customer. I mean, these guys make sensors and apps that analyze athletes swings, hits, jumps, and motion. They are the official bat sensor technology for Major League Baseball!
I was able to chat with Steve Wehba, the System Architect for the Blast Motion apps, about how they use logging during development, testing, and production and how Bugfender has helped them.
