CatLog

View the system log

CatLog shows a scrolling (tailed) view of the Android "Logcat" system log, hence the goofy name. It also allows you to record logs in real time, send logs via email, and filter using a variety of criteria. It has a widget, can record logs in the background and has useful colour coding.

It won't work on Android 4.1+ without root access, since apps are not allowed to access each others' logs.

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.
