Bugfender gets a major redesign

The cloud-based, remote logger for mobile apps is getting a major redesign. Version 2 of Bugfender features a rebuilt UI, a new frontend architecture in Angular, better overview of apps, teams and the log viewer, and improved search function.

In addition, the team added crash reporting, enhanced the log viewer, improved the user profile and team profile pages, and made several backend improvements.

“Bugfender started as an internal experiment, so we didn’t give much thought to UI when we made it. But after chatting with real users across our spectrum of plans, we realized we had some limitations and flaws in the Bugfender architecture. As a bootstrapped, fully-remote company, we’re committed to listening to real user feedback before writing a single line of code,” the team wrote in a post.
