The Sentry alternative that solves way more crashes out of the box
Sentry is an error handling tool myopically focused on logging and crashes. As an event-based approach, Sentry requires a ton of manual instrumentation, yet the return is not commensurate with the work. Logs alone provide limited visibility into the issues that truly stop a user from using your app.
In mobile, every device is a user with an infinite set of ever-changing variables. To quickly identify and solve issues, you need data beyond the limited scope of self-instrumented logs. Learn how a platform purpose-built for mobile can report more issues along with all the data you need to solve them.
Sentry is reactive, not proactive
Sentry’s power comes from logging, which by definition identifies potential issues you already know about… because you set the logs. However, in mobile you can’t possibly predict all the issues.
Will you rely on users to report every issue to you? Even if they do, there won’t be enough information to reproduce them.
How will you identify non-fatal issues? Most issues on mobile aren’t crashes. (Your crash rate is 99.x%!) These issues don’t end in a log or stack trace, like frozen screens, stalled start-ups, blank web views, failed network calls, etc.
How will you identify issues that don’t stem from a single failing resource? You can’t notice when things are missing, slow, or out of order without full user session context.
Embrace surfaces the most issues and crashes
The true health of an app must be measured by any time a user’s progression is stopped. Embrace tracks the entirety of each and every user experience to achieve the most comprehensive approach. As a mobile-only platform, we are completely dedicated to surfacing every type of issue that leads to churn and lost revenue.
Advanced crash detection and solving
Discover issues other tools miss or under report and automatically identify them (e.g. ANR root cause detection and background crashes).
Key user flow optimization
Stop users from abandoning your app due to slow or failing startups, checkouts, and purchases.
Full visibility into networking errors
Trace the call from the device through your backend to identify whether the problem is poor connectivity, too many calls leading to a timeout, or a broken endpoint.
Debugging with Sentry is unpredictable and causes needless releases
When you do have an issue and you don’t have the logs for context, you have to add logs and release a new version. Then you cross your fingers and hope you caught the issue. If not, you do it again — add more logs, rinse, and repeat. This adds days and weeks to your time to resolution along with the pain and frustration that stems from unsolved issues.
With Embrace, reproduce any session and instantly solve with the root-cause
With access to every single session, you can reproduce sessions with all the data you need — not just limited to logs. Dive into a session with views/activities, network calls, CPU usage, memory, and more in a traversable, time-based visualization. Even better, for any issue, quickly understand the quantifiable impact across all users so you can prioritize whether it’s even worth fixing.
