Crash Reporting


The Importance of Crash Reporting: How Uncaught Crashes Can Damage Your Application's Reputation, Revenue, and more

At BugSplat, we have a unique view of how uncaught crashes can impact individual teams (and entire companies) through our work building tools to find and fix bugs in live applications. We've seen firsthand the difference it can make when teams have a workflow for reporting every defect that makes it into production and when they don't.


Prioritizing Defects with the New Auto Grouping Feature

BugSplat's new auto-grouping feature is a powerful way to automatically group crashes in a way that's meaningful to your team. Normally, crashes are grouped by the top of the call stack. But sometimes this grouping isn't ideal. For example, if the top of your call stack is KERNELBASE!RaiseException (a Windows OS function) you'd probably prefer the crashes were grouped by a different stack frame. That's what BugSplat's auto-grouping feature does!


The 2023 guide to React debugging

As React is the most popular JavaScript framework for creating component-based applications, you have access to a solid ecosystem of tools, resources, and best practices that can help with React debugging when something goes wrong. To create a high-quality React application, you can’t skip over the debugging phase of your software development life cycle including everything from addressing error messages coming up in the development phase to monitoring live errors in production.


Four ways to spend less time (and budget) fixing your application bugs.

Finding and fixing bugs is a critical part of the development process, both in development and production, but is it possible to be more effective in less time? A poll of thousands of software industry members conducted by Stripe revealed that the average software development team spends up to 42% (Stripe/Harris) of their time on tasks in service of fixing bugs. That's almost half of all developer time spent maintaining old code instead of writing new code.


Instana and Instabug Join Forces To Increase Efficiency with Mobile-to-Server Overview of Network Flows

Instana and Instabug are closing the end-to-end visibility gap for mobile app teams and the operations teams that support them. By enabling developers and SREs to seamlessly connect on-device and backend network flows, teams can – for the first time – resolve app quality incidents quickly and definitively.


How to handle Android exceptions and avoid application crashes

Let’s start by stating the obvious: an exception is a problem that occurs during the runtime of a program which disrupts its conventional flow and exception handling is the process of responding to an exception. In Android, not handling an exception will lead to your application crashing and you seeing the dreaded “App keeps stopping” dialog. This makes handling exceptions incredibly important, and let’s face it: no one is going to use an app that continually crashes.


Crash Reporting & Real User Monitoring for React applications

In this blog post, I’m going to talk about how to integrate Raygun4JS with React at a deeper level than what is provided out-of-the-box. None of these things are needed for Raygun4JS to do its primary job (reporting errors that happen on your website) but provide useful extra value for determining how your React application is performing and what is going wrong when an error occurs.
