The challenge is really finding the feature set that you do want, with none of the liabilities for features you don’t want (e.g. library dependencies, “hacks”, etc.).

Google Quick Search Box includes Breakpad. So that’s another vote in favor of Breakpad, then.

So I’ll file another vote for Apple to add support for open crash reporting. Do they really want reports for X thousand 3rd party apps?

The resulting dialog said the report would go to Google! (Not Apple.)

So I’m going on a hunt. I wonder if Apple did add some features to the reporter… I’ll let you know.

I’m just about to look at building a crash reporter into my app before releasing my first Alpha. How strange you should post such a well timed article. Now I have the full info to make my choice.

Thanks!

Adding it to Camino was incredibly simple.

It works great; I get the reports by email, and the users get a chance to tell me what they were doing just before the crash.

Breakpad is also used (and developed) by Google, however it seems very complicated, as it is cross-platform.

If a user happens to already have Smart Crash Reports installed — and a decent number of users do — you’ll get the crash report without having to ship any code.

That being said, Apple: stop the madness!
