This repository is intended to help iOS developers easily put crash report emailing in their application.

Setup Your Application To Send Crash Reports

Put this code in your application delegate:

- (BOOL) application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {

    if([MFMailComposeViewController canSendMail] && [[CrashReportSender sharedCrashReportSender] hasPendingCrashReport]){

        NSString *crashReport = [[CrashReportSender sharedCrashReportSender] getLastCrashReport];
        MFMailComposeViewController *vc = [[MFMailComposeViewController alloc] init];
        [vc setToRecipients:[NSArray arrayWithObject:@"YOUR_EMAIL@HERE.COM"]];
        [vc setSubject:@"App Crash"];
        vc.mailComposeDelegate = self;
        NSData *data = [crashReport dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding];

        NSDateFormatter *formatter = [[NSDateFormatter alloc] init];
        [formatter setDateStyle:NSDateFormatterShortStyle];
        [formatter setTimeStyle:NSDateFormatterNoStyle];
        NSString *date = [formatter stringFromDate:[NSDate date]];
        [formatter release];

        [vc addAttachmentData:data  mimeType:@"text/xml" fileName:[NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@.crash",date]];
        [navigationController presentModalViewController:vc animated:YES];
        [vc release];

- (void) mailComposeController:(MFMailComposeViewController*)controller didFinishWithResult:(MFMailComposeResult)result error:(NSError*)error{
    [navigationController dismissModalViewControllerAnimated:YES];

Making sense of crash report

Once you get the crash report, use symbolicatecrash to symbolize the crash report to make sense out of the file. ./symbolicatecrash "Report.crash"
