With the surge in mobile apps and mobile app development, the number of app crashes has increased. The more popular your app is the bigger your chance of crashing. Many developers deal with this issue by having a crash reporting system in place to monitor crashes, track information on that specific crash, and take appropriate action. However, users often report an error with their device and not an actual crash; these errors are typically referred to as unreported exceptions or not yet debugged errors. With our ever-increasing demand for personalized customer service each and every day, it is critical that you have a way in which you can keep track of all crashes so that your developers know what has been going wrong.
Here is a list of some of the best-performing app crash-reporting tools presently available in the market.
Instabug is, arguably, the most popular crash-reporting tool for iOS devices and is especially liked by Apple. Instabug provides your app with data that is essential to you so that you may understand what your users are experiencing and also make sure that the app is working efficiently. Instabug tracks app crashes in real-time and notifies the developer on how many users’ apps have crashed.
One great feature of Instabug is its advanced monitoring system that alerts the developer anytime an app crashes and also allows the developer to do additional checks in their device (fingerprint or core data) to find out what happened.
Crashlytics is a mobile crash reporting tool created by Twitter and is probably the most popular one in its class.
