What is ACRA ?

ACRA is a library enabling Android applications to automatically post their crash reports to a report server. It is targeted to android applications developers to help them get data from their applications when they crash or behave erroneously.

ACRA is used in 1.87% (See AppBrain/stats) of all apps on Google Play as of Feb 2019. That's over 48K apps using ACRA.

See BasicSetup for a step-by-step installation and usage guide.

A crash reporting feature for android apps is native since Android 2.2 (FroYo) but only available through the official Android Market (and with limited data). ACRA is a great help for Android developers :

ACRA's notification systems are clean. If a crash occurs, your application does not add user notifications over existing system's crash notifications or reporting features. By default, the "force close" dialog is not displayed anymore, to enable it set alsoReportToAndroidFramework to true.

The user is notified of an error only once, and you might enhance the perceived quality of your application by defining your own texts in the notifications/dialogs.

Please do not hesitate to open defects/enhancements requests in the issue tracker.

Backends

Acralyzer is the official backend for report storage and analysis. It runs on CouchDB, for which free hosting solutions exist. It is feature complete, but currently unmaintained. Anybody picking this project up is very welcome.

Acrarium is the recommended alternative, if you do not want to rely on an unmaintained project. Acrarium is in active development and has not reached stable phase yet.

A lot of other solutions have been provided by the community, just check which one you like most.
