What is the point of bug reports going back to you?

    So I'm pretty sure anyone and everyone here has at one point or another seen their phone say something about a bug capture log done. And usually it would then have a notification to ask if you want to share said bug report, usually referring to whatever apps that you have that would share the data, including but not limited to email.

    So, can someone explain to me why when I would try to email it, it is just only addressed to ever come back to me, with no detail of *which app* crashed to warrant the bug report, or more appropriately, be submitted to Google/[ insert app developer here] to actually do something useful with it? It's always just addressed to pop up immediately in my own inbox and never really goes anywhere further, so the feature is pointless as far as I'm concerned. Are these app devs really that smug a bastard that they can't be bothered to use this information? :mad: I'm tired of having it just bounce back to me like I'm supposed to know what to do with these esoteric reports!

    Actually I've never had a crash report that mails back to me. In fact I can't think of when I last saw such a report on my phone at all.

    The obvious question here is which app is doing this, but equally obviously your frustration is that you don't know. How often is this happening?

    It doesn't happen often, but every time that it does lead to where it just gives me the option to email the bug report and ends up bouncing back to me, it's always with a notification and icon that looks like the top half of the Android 'bot' mascot and the bottom half of a roach.

    The last occurrence only happened a couple days ago, but I forgot to actually save the email for one, and secondly didn't have time to post about it sooner until now.

    I've had a couple of those, but never bounced back.

    Well, it just happened yet again. When I try to share it via gmail, it just shows a screenshot of what chrome had while it was running. but again, it just emails directly back to me instead of going to Google itself.

    What the crap?

    I hate to necro this thread, but even now with a new phone and new build of Android, this stuff is still hapenning. Only this time, the screenshot that it attaches to the emails is literally a solid black screen, and then a log file that doesn't seem like I can extract it at all. It never actually sends to anyone except back to myself.:mad:

    Can't offer any help, but I can say this happens to me too.

    What device are you using?

    I was previously using the Note 3 phone. I'm currently using a Moto X Pure. And it still happens.
