Description

Instabug is an in-app feedback and bug reporting tool for mobile apps. With just a simple shake, your users or beta testers can report bugs or send in-app feedback and the SDK will capture an environment snapshot of your user's device including all console logs, server-side network requests and bug reproduction steps compiling all these details in one organised dashboard to help you debug and fix bugs faster.

Instabug also provides you with a reliable crash reporter that automatically captures a detailed report of the running environment, the different threads’ states, the steps to reproduce the crash, and the network request logs. All the data is captured automatically with no need for breadcrumbs, and you can always reply back to your users and they will receive your messages within the app.

Usage

  1. Import Instabug framework header in your app delegate

    // Swift
    import Instabug
    
    // Objective-C
    #import <Instabug/Instabug.h>
    
  2. Add the following to your app delegate's application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: method.

    // Swift
    Instabug.start(withToken: <#app token#>, invocationEvents: .shake)
    
    // Objective-C
    [Instabug startWithToken:<#app token#> invocationEvents:IBGInvocationEventShake];
    

    Make sure to replace app_token with your application token. Find it here.

Notes

Instabug needs access to the microphone and photo library to be able to let users add audio and video attachments. Starting from iOS 10, apps that don’t provide a usage description for those 2 permissions would be rejected when submitted to the App Store.

For your app not to be rejected, you’ll need to add the following 2 keys to your app’s info.plist file with text explaining to the user why those permissions are needed:

  • NSMicrophoneUsageDescription
  • NSPhotoLibraryUsageDescription

If your app doesn’t already access the microphone or photo library, we recommend using a usage description like:

  • "<app name> needs access to the microphone to be able to attach voice notes."
  • "<app name> needs access to your photo library for you to be able to attach images."

The permission alert for accessing the microphone/photo library will NOT appear unless users attempt to attach a voice note/photo while using Instabug.
