Twitter’s Crashlytics Mobile Reporting Software Arrives On Android

In January of this year, Twitter acquired Crashlytics, the “powerful, yet lightest weight crash reporting solution.”

Yesterday, the company released Crashlytics for Android, the long-awaited companion to the iOS version.

Crashlytics for Android delivers deep, real-­time crash reporting across all devices, performing a detailed analysis of every thread on every Android device to identify the most important issues.

As Crashlytics founder Wayne Chang explains in a blog post announcing the release,

“At Crashlytics, our mission has always been to deliver the easiest and most powerful tools for mobile developers. Great crash detection and reporting, particularly on Android, is a complex problem to solve. It is nearly impossible for developers to fully test every edge-case and catch every bug before release; it’s even harder to find the root cause.

To address this, we first built Crashlytics for iOS, which many of the top apps trust to deliver accurate, detailed crash reports, but we couldn’t stop there. Given the complexities of crash reporting, Android’s explosive growth, and the myriad of devices, it was important for us to build the most powerful, lightweight crash reporting solution for the Android platform.”

And they’ve done it.
