Introduction to Crashlytics
While creating mobile applications for any of the platforms (iOS, Android, or Windows) most common thing you notice is the crashing of the applications whether it’s due to low device memory availability or due to some code errors while development. From developer perspective if you are unable to track what’s wrong with your application, you will never able to fix out the issues or errors which your application is having. For that the tracking of application crash is must, so that you’ll be able to know about the details of your application crashes.
Crashlytics is the services offered by “twitter” free of cost which collects crashes of applications along with some other bits of information. Crashlytics is very easy to setup & install, and it starts providing you the reports as soon as you install it.
Without crash reports you’ll have no idea that what’s happening to your application in the production. If your application crashes on user’s device during production, you need to know. The reason is simple that you developed the application by testing your application but something happened to an application which you have never expected. If you have uploaded your app on Apple App store or on Google play store or on Windows app store, users have downloaded your application and now wants to use your application after installing that. Suddenly application crashed up, now what ? Your users starts to lose faith in you and your application after which negative comments starts to roll in for your application.
So when you are monitoring your applications this means you are able to assess the risk level which is being caused by the application crash.
