No more Google Forms
Using Google Forms as an ACRA backend has been a nice free solution when starting android development. Though, Google asked us to stop using this solution and it won't be supported in future releases.
Acralyzer is the new open source backend created by the author of ACRA.
Its main advantages:
- Can be hosted for free on Cloudant, IrisCouch or Couchappy (reasonable
pricing plan based on your usage of both services, you'll most likely stay in the free zone)
Note: if the backend is hosted on cloudant and facing Host returned error code 400 issue while posting report. Refer to the solution in the following link. Host returned error code 400
- Based on a full open source stack, it can also be hosted on your own servers with the only requirement of installing CouchDB. Your data is yours.
- Guarantees to display ALL possible data collected by ACRA.
Being an open source project, ACRA welcomes all initiatives to integrate its reports in any other backend/analysis tool.
