In order to use Bugfender, you need to have a Bugfender account and an application key. This article shows you how to do do each step.

Create a Bugfender account

If you do not have an account yet, first step is to sign up for a Bugfender account. Go to our Sign up page and fill in your details. The process takes less than 1 minute.

Create a Bugfender App for your application and install the SDK

Once you have an account ready, you will need to select the type of application you are working on. There you will get specific instructions for your language and development environment.

After installing the SDK, run your application. Bugfender will remain "waiting for logs" until the first logs get to our server. If you can not get this working, check our Troubleshooting section.

Send logs to Bugfender

Use BFLog or logcat to log in your application. Optionally, you may want to use a logging library or framework for a more fine-grained control over your logs.
