Debugging an app that’s running in an emulator, or connected to your development machine is easy-peasy. But, we all know that dreaded phone call from the client, saying that the app suddenly doesn’t work on ‘his’ phone, but you can’t see anything wrong at your end. Oh, if only you could run a “adb logcat” on his phone, but he’s miles away!.
That’s where remote logcat comes in, just add a few lines of code into your app, and then you can have your app send all it’s diagnostic information up to this website, and you can use it to help reproduce what went wrong on the client’s phone.
We’ve developed this service as an internal tool, and we’ve decided to open it up to android developers around the world, allowing them remotely debug their Android apps, using a few lines of code.

Just this morning, we finally had our app “Under the crypt” accepted by Apple. It’s available for $0.99 cents and is available for Mountain Lion (64 Bit) or higher. It was designed with Xamarin – a .NET based cross platform app development system, – it is a port of a Phonegap app, that was previously available for Blackberry and Android on the Amazon app store. Thanks goes to to @veubeke, @UlrikeErdmann, and Tyber Zann for programming support!

It’s based on the Xamarin.Mac framework, and the back-end runs on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Check it out at:

With the effective demise of Nokia’s ill-fated venture into Android, Microsoft Mobile Oy, the successor to Nokia’s mobile business has transferred all it’s Android apps to the Opera Mobile Store. We had a number of Android apps available for Nokia X, and these have been moved too, and you can find them here http://apps.opera.com/en_us/catalog.php?vendor_id=126525
This move should significantly bolster Opera’s position as an alternative app store, beside Amazon and Samsung. What remains to be seen is if they can gain a foothold in the Chinese market, where Google Play is not available, and local incumbents like Tencent and Baidu have taken that market share. We, also would be interested in making our paid android apps available in China, so anyone with expertise in that area should contact us.

Vserv delivers Smart Data™ insights on the emerging billion connected users that can be leveraged by marketers, telecom operators and app developers. Through tools such as AppWrapper and SDKs, the company enables app publishers to integrate ads within their mobile apps and derive maximum monetization out of them.
These tools enable publishers to integrate ads within apps without having to modify the source code. This makes them an ideal solution for developers who are looking to take their apps to the market faster without having to go through the learning curve of a third party advertising platform.
This year in June, Vserv partnered with DVLUP, a rewards platform for Nokia developers, for a competition to help developers increase their monetization opportunities for Nokia X apps. Our company participated in this competition, wrapping a set of Android apps for Nokia X, which brought our total downloads of Nokia Apps to over 1.1 million downloads!
The combination of advertising exposure, downloads, and app quality, put our company out in front, and on the September 1, we were notified that our company had won the first prize in the competition, and were to be rewarded a cash prize, along with a Nokia X phone for development.
