Logcat Extreme is an enhanced Logcat/Dmesg reader and Logcat recorder which comes with a rich set of features and handy user interface.

Please note: From Android 4.1 onwards ANY logcat app needs root access in order to show logs.

New sliding side menus (update 1.4):
the UI has been dramatically improved and reorganized in side menus, swipe from the left side to the right to access the navigation menu and switch between the main features, swipe from the right side to the left to access the list of your saved logcats, from there open, send or delete your logs.

Introducing "Floating Logcat" (update 1.1):
a new wonderful feature powered by StandOut, it allows you to keep the logcat on top right while you're working on your device, perfect for your tests! the logcat is shown inside a window you can move, resize and even minimize, just like a desktop one.

* Read live logcat
* Pause and resume
* Record (even in background)
* Send logs via mail
* Apply filters (priority level, format, etc.)
* Search box for quick filtering
* Many options to configure the logcat
* Read the kernel's debug messages (dmesg)
* UI straightforward, the controls you need at your fingertips
* New "Per-app Logcat" feature!
* Revolutionary "Floating Logcat" feature!
* Floating window resizable even with pintch-to-zoom

- In order to start a new Floating Logcat session tap the last button on the right (bottom bar).
- In order to resize the Floating Logcat drag the bottom-right corner of the window.

Devs corner:

Starting from version 1.3, devs can use intent actions and extras in order to launch the
logcat recorder directly from their apps:

"scd.lcex.ACTION_REC" start recording

"scd.lcex.ACTION_STOP" stop recording and service associated

"scd.lcex.EXTRA_FILTER" logcat filter (string, optional), use in conjunction with ACTION_REC

    I have a problem with a game I play on my hudl tablet (android), I need to log the info to send to the developers. How do I use this app to do so? Thanks for the email with possible solutions, helpful developers are hard to come by :)

    UI before was way better. New colors are horrible. Still a great app though.

    And the gui is not following the design guidelines.

    Works well and easy enough for non-devs and first-timers to operate. I went through a couple other logcat apps before settling on this one, the other apps had me all like "derp wth am I doing" but I was able to figure this app out quickly enough and now I'm logcatting away!!!
