Logcat Reader – View and save the device logs

[App] Logcat Reader

Logcat ReaderLogcat Reader makes it easy to view and save the device logs. The source code is available at github.com/darshanparajuli/LogcatReader.


Color coded logs based on log priority
Search through log messages and tags
Option to select from available log buffers*
Save the logs as a simple text file (as you would see via logcat)
Dark UI theme (switches on at night automatically by default)

May not work on all devices, in which case, the option will simply not be present in Settings.

Needed for saving logs.

Required for fetching all of the logs, not just the ones produced by the app itself, instructions to grant this permission will show every time the app is opened.

Tested on:
HTC One (m7)
HTC 10

Logcat Reader user reviews :

Nice app but… Would be better if there’s an option to load a log file that has been taken with adb before (Maybe converting it to app’s format?). Take a look at my issue on GitHub.
  • Darshan Parajuli
  • Could you please elaborate further? (You can currently open a log file from external location only if it was previously saved there via this app as it needs to be in the right format).

I by-mistakely deleted a key-module in my device.. And landed with many problems on my device.With the perfect filters and beautiful ui of this app.. i was able to identify that which module exactly it was. Then i downloaded it from web.. and everything got fixed.. Loved it

A little tricky enabling through adb shell however works without root access. Nice.

Works great. Just note, the command you need to write is all one line. obvious when you think about it but i brain farted. Helps me figure out programs that are installed and doing rogue things like auto adjusting my volume everytime i unlock my phone! (webex). this tool isnt just for developers!

The first logcat reader I’ve found in years that works as it should! Thanks, Darshan.

Fantastic log reader app Can filter by tag, PID, or other factors Clear UI with no ads or confusion

Great application for your phone and it’s really easy to use and I am able to find what I am looking for quickly highly recommend this application it’s the best I’ve found and I’ve had several wish I’d found this application sooner it’s brilliant thanks for making such a easy to use and amazing application

Definitely one of the best logcat apps on Android, it doesn’t require root, instead, you grant access with an ADB shell command. Decent UI, good filtering features, dark theme, it has everything I expected.

Works without root but had to restart twice. UI could be more usable. e.g. long clicking an event automatically adds its PID/TID/log lebel into filters or possibility to disable to filter to avoid the need to recreate them.

Good design. It handles scrolling action in a very bright way. Feature request: pinch to zoom & item collapsing. Thank you!

Simple, useful and works as expected, thanks

Nice looking, easy to use, and functional. My new favorite logcat app!

Perfect tool for what i need! Thanks!
