Android bug tracking tools

 

Any software project is going to need issue and bug tracking. The bigger the project, the more the developers and the larger the userbase, the more critical it gets to keep tabs on what issues are outstanding, what features are in the pipeline, what schedules you are keeping and what is urgent.

Here at Envato we’ve used a number of apps over the years including Trac and PivotalTracker . Our main tool however is Lighthouse which is generally a solid app and scales well for the many projects and many people we have using it. There are some issues with the app, mainly to do with the search tools and some of the UI design, but overall it’s been good to us with our problems with the app being of the “that’s annoying” category, rather than deal breakers.

Here are eight different options for bug tracking that you might like to check out. Most are web services with free trials available to take them for a test drive. If you know of any we’ve missed, leave a comment!

Android bug tracking tools

We frequently release new features, improvements, and bug fixes to our customers by offering updates to a tracker's software. Known as firmware releases, they're free and easy to implement. For instructions see How do I update my tracker?  

Click your tracker model below to see the release notes for each firmware update. 

If you've already updated to iOS 10.2 and can't update your tracker, see Why won't Blaze sync with my iOS device?  for more information.

Since only a few customers received the previous release (8.301.4), this release includes the same new features and fixes but adds notification improvements as well.  If the "workout" option is missing from your Exercise menu, add it back by following the instructions in  How do I customize the Exercise menu on my tracker?

Android 5.0–5.1.1 "Lollipop" is a version of the Android mobile operating system developed by Google , spanning versions between 5.0 and 5.1.1. [2] Unveiled on June 25, 2014 at the Google I/O 2014 conference, it became available through official over-the-air (OTA) updates on November 12, 2014, for select devices that run distributions of Android serviced by Google (such as Nexus and Google Play edition devices). Its source code was made available on November 3, 2014.

One of the most prominent changes in the Lollipop release is a redesigned user interface built around a design language known as Material Design , which was made to retain a paper-like feel to the interface. Other changes include improvements to the notifications, which can be accessed from the lockscreen and displayed within applications as top-of-the-screen banners. Google also made internal changes to the platform, with the Android Runtime (ART) officially replacing Dalvik for improved application performance, and with changes intended to improve and optimize battery usage.

As of November 2016 [update] , statistics issued by Google indicate that 34% of all Android devices accessing Google Play run Lollipop. [3]

UPDATE, code for OpenCV3 + Android Studio is on GitHub This tutorial is for older samples, if you are starting with the new ones (2.4.6) please look at this updated tutorial . Method and principles of matching are the same for both.

Finally I found some time to write promised tutorial of eye detection and template matching on Android. Since OpenCV for Android is getting better and better, some code snippets can be old and not the best possible way to solve the problem. If you found some improvements, please comment or contact me, I will edit this post and share it to others.

We take standard OpenCV example for face detections and extends it a little.
Android OpenCV SDK can be found here
If you arent’n familiar with Eclipse and OpenCV yet, please read basic setup of opencv4android first.
Import Face detection sample to Eclipse and clean/build the project to be sure is correctly imported and working.
