Mixed feelings Can't say it helps, I installed it to see why my phone kept rebooting on its own, but while the recorder is running the phone doesn't reboot, but 2 minutes after I stop the recording, the phone reboots. Still hoping a reboot will occur while it's running. 😑(edit) log file is empty, it still stops my phone from rebooting, but it's not doing what it's supposed to be doing.
Works but no timestamps! I realise the normal logs don't have timestamps but it would have been better to have them so I could later import them into Splunk. However the app works as advertised - I left it running for a few weeks. I lose about 15 to 20% of my daily battery which is acceptable. The logs do grow quite large! This would get 5 stars if it had the option of adding a timestamp at the beginning of every log.
Not Recording Google changed the permissions in Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and apps now require root access to read logs other than their own. This app, and others like it, will no longer work without root access.
Does not record The sole function it is supposed to fulfil, to record the output of logcat, is malfunctioning on all devices I tested it with. Other people have indicated it is happening on Android 4.x devices. At any rate, the app is worthless without a fix. However, when fixed, it deserves much praise.
0kb files in KitKat Apparently it still doesn't work with Android 4x. I'm on KK (rooted SM-G900T with 4.4.2) and get 0kb files. I was so hoping this would be able to tell me what's causing random reboots when I'm talking on the phone.
Something is not quite right Running on a Nexus for with Cyanogen Mod 10.1 (android 4.2.x) aLogRec just produces 0kb files. If there are permission issues on these newer 4.x builds, the dev needs to update this to be distributed as incompatible with those devices.
