Useless in Jelly Bean This app used to do something but since Jelly Bean, it can only view its own log messages, which is kind of pointless. Unless the phone is rooted, perhaps, the only way to get the logs now is to install the Android SDK, connect the phone via USB, and use adb logcat.
Very handy A simple yet remarkably useful app. Now I'll be able to complain intelligently about poorly-made apps that crash all the time without needing to hook up to a computer to figure out the causes of the crashes. Plus, I didn't even know about the existence of the Events and Radio logcat buffers until now.
If it works... This can be an awesome tool, but only when it works. Most of the time, it simply does nothing, or at least nothing in the 10 minute patience limit I have. The few times it's worked though, I loved it, so it remains on my list.
aLogcat Extremely interesting tool since Logcat does pop up in searching the OS for a built-in bug, 4.4.2 v19 with missing attributes. This may work if my glaucoma holds out!
Blank White logs Then only way I have found to fix this is by using titanium backup to force install as a system app. Not sure why, wish this app just used root or something to get access to logs.
know what my phone is loaded Repeat what you did before, to make the popup error message show up. Run the aLogcat app again, and check out the most recent logs. It'll probably be in red, and it should identify which app showed the message. Hope that helps. Update: Your comment said that it didn't help. I don't know any specific tools to monitor what app is downloading. I have used SystemPanel before to monitor the overall phone system. It will shows you upload/download network traffic for the whole phone, and it can also show you what apps are active. Turn on monitoring in the app, go through the process again to get the error message, then check out which processes show as active during that period. You might be able to find the culprit that way.
