Where is the debug/console log location on an iPad?

You must Login before you can answer or comment on any questions.

I'm trying to determine if and where the console log is stored on the actual device (an iPad in this case). The log lives in the applications Documents directory in the simulator but not on the iPad.

To be clear, this is the log to which Ti.API.trace messages would be written.

If you install the ICU (iPhone Configuration Utility) on your MAC and then use the Console Tab while your iPad is connected you will see all the info/debug messages that are output to the iPad console.

  • Thanks, but the crux of the issue is I'm looking for the log file on the device, not the simulator. My quest may be futile and the log file may not exist or be inaccessible.

  • This IS the actual iPad device console output (or iPhone if you connect one), you connect your iPad to you Mac run the ICU and the console tab shows you the device console as it happens, including all debug, exception, info data.

    Try it and you will see.

  • Sorry, my first response wasn't complete. I am hoping to access the log from within my application on an untethered iPad. Thanks for your help, Steve.
