Occasionally it can happen that problems cannot be easily reproduced on our reference devices. In such a case (and if you agree) you might be asked to install a debug version of FocusGTD which will produce a lot of logging data which helps the developers to figure out whats going wrong.
Installing the app
In order to install the apk file you need to enable “Install from untrusted sources”.
I recommend to turn this off once you have installed the debug version
While the debug version can be installed side by side with the play store version, I recommend uninstalling the play store version as otherwise duplicate alarms etc will show up.
If you are only using it briefly and you are aware of these issues you can obviously choose to run both
Launching the debug version
The debug version shows as “DBG:Focus GTD”.
The Log files
Depending on your Android version, the app will prompt you for permissions to be able to access the external storage directory.
This is needed in order to create the log folder and create log files.
After granting the permission, the app will close itself and you need to restart the app.
Please double check that the log file exists before you try and
reproduce the problem.
If the log file does not exist yet, please exit and restart the
The app will produce logs in /sdcard/focusgtd/, navigate to this folder using a file explorer and then copy it to your PC (where you should review it so that you are happy with sending out the data contained).
Please be aware that:
debug logs might contain personal information such as tasks that are being synched right now.
debug logs will also contain the HTTP traffic that is happening between the sync server and the app
depending on your Sync server, if you are using HTTP BASIC authentication then the log will contain an only slightly scrambled version of your account password which can easily be reconstructed
if you are using OmniSyncServer then this is not the case as it is using HTTP DIGEST which only contains random numbers etc.
So only send over the data if you are comfortable with its contents.
