4 October 2013

Wellington, NZ October 3, 2013 - Elite error reporting service Raygun, from software tools company Mindscape, have released the beta for their Android provider to add to the existing Windows Phone and Xamarin providers in their mobile arsenal. Support for this major platform follows the recent release of support for other popular platforms like ASP.NET, Ruby, and Node.js.

Support for mobile has been high on the agenda for Raygun since its launch this year, and the release of the beta Android provider will allow private users to test it out in their apps, give feedback and help bring intelligent error reporting to the mobile space.

Features that will appear in the beta include support for Android Gingerbread onwards, full Android hardware data displayed in the dashboard, and fast and easy installation to name a few.

‘Add two lines of code to your app, and all uncaught exceptions will be automatically delivered to Raygun’, explained Callum Gavin, who built the provider. ‘It’s going to make your job a whole lot easier when debugging your apps, giving your users a much better experience’.

Raygun users can email hello@raygun.io to find out how use the Android provider, or signup at raygun.io for a free trial.
