The Android Developers Blog is once again giving us the skinny on how developers can make their apps better for users, and one of their latest posts focuses on the new error reporting system that was announced at Google I/O.


When a user reports an application crash, they will have the option to provide an in-depth system log to help a developer determine exactly what went wrong. Of course, a user never has to send this info (Google seems to be on top of their privacy stuff since their Google Buzz launch), but the more they want to send the better it is for those making the apps (and Google, who will also use the reports to locate bugs within Android itself). Developers will get access to consolidated error and bug logs directly available to them through their Android Market publisher control panel.

This feature is a definite ‘win’ for developers, who now not only know when their apps crash, but also the circumstances. If you want to read more about the new app error reporting system, head over to the Android Developers Blog.
