During yesterday’s I/O 2017 announcements Google updated the Developer Console: they now provide crash reports without the need for users to click “Report” after a crash. This change was long overdue! We, users do a poor job of reporting errors. I have seen more crash reports in the first day of this new system than in half a year earlier! As you can imagine this makes catching and fixing problems much more efficient. Earlier Android Wear crashes were extremely difficult to report, now these crashes and bugs are also included in the reports.

As a result of this welcome development, I already fixed 13 different (pretty isolated) crashes in the app:
► eliminated getAssets related crashes: icon packs + theme packs
► phone battery bubble update frequency was reduced to a maximum of 12/hour (from 20/hour), but increased to 30/hour while charging
► app drawer related crash
► flashlight bubble crashed without “modify system settings” permission
► crash cloud configuration window when adding bubbles
► crash when trying to edit Tasker bubbles
► crash when importing certain image assests (dial/hands) to clock bubble
► location related crash in standalone watch app (when fetching sunrise / sunset values)
► eliminated weather / phone battery update related memory leak
► Android Wear connection timeout 10 → 2 sec (was causing ANRs?)
► fixed two different Wear Cloud Editor crashes
► fixed crash when selecting icon from an iconpack
► crash when applying icon pack to LiveInfo bubbles in Wear Cloud Editor

I have already created the “Homescreen Widgets Only” app flavor, more on it in a later post… The current version of the app should not work any different.
