Error Reports

I’ve previously posted about this but its still  happening so here’s a refresher.

Android error reports are USELESS unless I can follow up with you and find out more info.

I can not fix a problem unless you get in touch with me. It could be something that is affecting just you because of your combination of devicedata or anything. The reports are anonymous so YOU must contact ME. If you do not then the problem will continue to occur.

Sometimes it is the phone causing the error (low memory etc) not the app so I’m only interested in repeatable errors. i.e Ones that you can reproduce. If it’s a one off error then please just forget it and do not report it.

If you do not want to get in touch, please do not use error reporting. It just creates more noise in the system.

This is an example error report. Not Helpful are they?
