How do I retrieve the Trip Journal crash logs?

18th Jul, 2011

Trip Journal Guide
Comments (0)

If Trip Journal is freezing or crashing regularly, we may request crash logs from you to help us diagnose any issues. Crash logs contain information about what the app was doing just prior to the crash.

To find a log file, please sync your iPhone, iPod or iPad first, then locate the correct log file for the app using the path for your OS below. The log file’s name should start with the app’s name.

When an application crashes on the iPhone or iPod touch, a “crash report” is stored on the device. Crash reports describe the conditions under which the application terminated, in most cases including a complete stack trace for each executing thread, and are typically very useful for debugging issues in the application.

When the user synchronizes their device using iTunes, crash reports are copied to a directory on the user’s computer. If the application was distributed via the App Store and the user has chosen to submit crash logs to Apple, the crash log will be uploaded and the developer can download it via iTunes Connect. For applications that have been distributed using Ad Hoc or Enterprise methods, getting crash reports requires user cooperation. Specifically, the user will need to retrieve the crash report from the directory where it was copied by iTunes. Depending on the platform, the directory is:

  • Mac OS X: ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<DEVICE_NAME>
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Application Data\Apple Computer\Logs\CrashReporter\MobileDevice\<DEVICE_NAME>
  • Windows Vista or 7: C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\Logs\CrashReporter\MobileDevice\<DEVICE_NAME>

<USERNAME> is the user’s login name for the computer. <DEVICE_NAME> is the name of the iPod touch or iPhone, for example, “John’s iPhone”.

We are only interested in .crash files. The crash report’s file name begins with the application name and contains date/time information. In addition, <DEVICE_NAME> will appear at the end of the file name, before the extension.

Once you’ve located the correct file, please email it back to us at support.tripjournal@iphone.iqapps.eu

How to recreate Past Trips with Trip Journal

Some of the questions being sent to our Support Community Desk deserve a dedicated blog-post so here it is :)

Today’s question was sent by Andre, a motorcycle fan who uses Trip Journal for iPhone to document and share his bike rides:

I went around the world on a motorcycle 10 years ago, I am have finally digitized all my photos. I was wondering: Is there a wat to manually create a trip? I.e  can I add photos and way points, dates to this trip? in other words. re-create an OLD trip?

 

Trip Journal is a great app for tracking your trips on the go, but if you only want to be busy taking pictures with your phone during the travel and care less about recording your route and establish waypoints, you can leave that for when you get home.

All you need to make sure is that your photos are added to the Camera Roll or Photo Library, so that you can access them from the Trip Journal application, then:

1_Map_Options

Create a new trip and go to “Locate on Map”. On the map you can add manual waypoints

2_Manual_Marker

One can easily move them to the exact location, change their creation date, add a photo to them

3_Waypoint_Options

After adding the first manually created waypoint, you can delete the Start Waypoint (from Waypoint Admin) – you don’t need this since it has your current location associated with the current date

4_AddingPhotosToWaypoint

You can add more photos to a waypoint (to do this go to Waypoint List and select the waypoint to which you want to add more photos, click on the add photos button)

How Does the New Trip Export-Import Feature Work?

11th Apr, 2011

News,Trip Journal Guide

Trip Journal Import ProcessAfter releasing our latest Trip Journal 6.0 versions for iPhone and Android, many users have asked us if we can explain, even more than we did it in our release blog-posts, how does this feature work. So we considered it as being our duty to further explain with a specific post.

We will be very specific, taking you step by step through both export and import processes. Screenshots are also provided to guide you.

Trip export:

1. Go to the Share Trip screen and select Email Export.

2. Make sure that you have a recipient selected. To do this press “Select Recipients” from Mail Export screen. Add a recipient or select an existing one from Recipients screen.

3. Press export from the Mail Export screen, and press send from the Mail Screen.

 

Trip Import:

1. Have an email account set up on your device (the recipient’s email account).

2. Check for the new email.

3. Select the e-mail, and check the attachment at the end.

4. Selecting the attachment, a menu appears showing the applications able to open the file. If selecting “Open in Trip Journal” the trip will be imported into the archived trips of the Trip Journal application.  That’s all.

 

Note: When selecting “Open in…” you will see a list of applications able to open the attachment. In our case Trip Journal and Trip Journal Free.

Select one of the applications and the trip will be imported into the selected application’s archived trips.
