Logcat Reader

A simple app to view logs

Logcat Reader makes it easy to view and save the device logs.

Features:


  • Color coded logs based on log priority

  • Search through log messages and tags

  • Option to select from available log buffers¹

  • Save the logs as a simple text file (as you would see via logcat)

  • Dark UI theme (switches on at night automatically by default)

¹ May not work on all devices, in which case, the option will simply not be present in Settings.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
