**THIS APP DOES NOT WORK ON ANDROID 4.1 AND ABOVE DUE TO CHANGES IN PERMISSIONS RELATING TO LOGS. I CANNOT CHANGE THIS. YOU WILL HAVE TO INSTALL IT AS ROOT TO HAVE IT WORK PROPERLY**

Log This is an application that can read logs given a provided tag and log level - and send them to developers. This saves them the hassle of having to use logcat on their computer with ADB.

As a developer, requesting the READ_LOGS permission is risky - it scares away a lot of users. Log This uses this permission, but is meant to be used by developers to request their end users to send in debug logs - one app to log em' all. If you want your logs to be private, you can send them straight to the developers email. Or if they prefer pastebin, you can do that too, and the application will even copy the link to the clipboard.

As an end user, you can install the app and help out your developers when they need debugging on specific phone models - provided they have logging enabled (perhaps via a logging mode).

It also can fetch kernel (panic) logs, as long as you supply the location of the log (a kernel developer can tell you if it does or not - not all kernels do)

This application is NOT optimized for tablets, but it should work on them. I don't have one to test with.

Permissions Explained:
READ_LOGS: Application has to be able to read the logs - the only data read is displayed in the email

INTERNET/CHECK_NETWORK_STATE: Advertising

WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Used for building the log file. I leave the latest log as log.txt on the root of your media area (internal SD) so that you can always check it yourself.

Send me an email if this app has any bugs (every app always does!), or if you have ideas. I'll try my best to respond in a timely manner.
