Shake to send a bug report!

Build Status Android Arsenal

Development Status: Dormant

  • Not currently under active development.
  • Active development may resume in the future.
  • Bug reports will be triaged and fixed. No guarantees are made regarding fix timelines.
  • Feature requests will be triaged. No guarantees are made regarding acceptance or implementation timelines.
  • Pull requests from external contributors are not currently being accepted.


BugShaker allows your QA team and/or end users to easily submit bug reports by shaking their device. When a shake is detected, the current screen state is captured and the user is prompted to submit a bug report via email with this screenshot attached.

This library is similar to Telescope, but aims to be even easier to integrate into your apps and workflows:

  • all configuration occurs in your custom Application subclass (no view hierarchy alterations required);
  • no need to request extra permissions;
  • iOS version of this library is already available (based on the same shake-to-send mechanism).


Play Store Demo App

Getting Started

(1) Specify BugShaker-Android as a dependency in your build.gradle file:

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.stkent:bugshaker:{latest-version}'

(2) Configure the shared BugShaker instance in your custom Application class, then call assemble and start to begin listening for shakes:

public class CustomApplication extends Application {
    public void onCreate() {

                 .setEmailAddresses("")   // required
                 .setEmailSubjectLine("Custom Subject Line") // optional
                 .setAlertDialogType(AlertDialogType.NATIVE) // optional
                 .setLoggingEnabled(BuildConfig.DEBUG)       // optional
                 .setIgnoreFlagSecure(true)                  // optional
                 .assemble()                                 // required
                 .start();                                   // required

It is recommended that logging always be disabled in production builds.
