Release notes

This page lists all updates to the Shake Android SDK.

What would you like us to build next? We're dying to hear from you — just click the button in the bottom-right corner of this screen.



June 30, 2020  Latest version

What's new

Screenshots are cool, but wouldn't it be even cooler if you could watch a 30 second video of what a user did before reporting the bug? That's why we introduced Screen recording.


May 19, 2020

What's new

Not all of you love the default Shake color. Now, whenever users open it up, Shake can appear in your brand color and with your logo.

You wanted us to get rid of Quick Facts (one long concatenated string) and introduce Metadata (useful key-value pairs) instead. So we did it.


April 1, 2020

What's new

Your users can at last attach their own files to a bug report! They can also remove any of them with a subtle long press. Neat.

There’s no such thing as too many invocation methods. Shake can now be invoked by a one-finger swiping gesture from the right edge of the screen too.

The Wrap-up screen is now a tiny bit more helpful than before. If your users want to, they can read how to report great bugs, report any SDK hiccups to us or recommend us.

If you want to, our Activity history now allows you to send yourself any custom logs, and read the notifications users receive.


March 12, 2020

What's new

To continue delivering you more and more options in a scalable manner, we have rewritten the whole Android SDK API Version 10. It's like getting a flu shot — feel free to hate us for a few minutes while you tweak a call or two, but we sincerely promise you'll enjoy all the benefits 100 times over.

By popular demand, Shake can now be invoked through code as well.

Submit yourself a silent bug report from the background, without interrupting your end user whatsoever!

Privacy options are important. That’s why you now have a method to disable or enable Activity history whenever you want to.

If you want to, you can hide the Inspect bug button from your users. Brilliant.


February 14, 2020

What's new

Shake is now fully equipped to track user’s full Activity history — browse user's interactions with your app, their network requests and system events prior to a bug being reported.


December 16, 2019

What's new

With a Disable Shake feature you can now easily allow only a portion of your app users to use Shake (for example, the ones that have opted in for beta access), while not allowing it to others.

Think globally, act locally. The latest version of Shake SDK has been cautiously translated to Spanish, German and French. Users whose default device language is set to one of these, will automatically see Shake in their language.


July 16, 2019

What's new

Shake now officially, and nicely, works on your tablet apps

Putting our best foot forward. Just like before an airplane crash, Shake now records a user's detailed environment profile covering the last 60 seconds before a bug was submitted. This feature is called — you’ve guessed it — Black box.


June 24, 2019

What's new

Shake is now a tiny bit cooler because you can also use it in landscape mode.

With Quick facts, you can now send a value of literally any variable from a user's app to your web Dashboard.


May 29, 2019

What's new

You can now inspect your bug right inside your mobile app, no need to submit it at all. Shake the device and tap the Inspect bug button.

Everyone loves colors! That's why users can now choose from 6 of them.


April 22, 2019

What's new

Jolly good! Your users can now leave their email address with every bug report so you can just follow that up.


April 8, 2019

What's new

Some things are not meant for sharing. Users can now blur out parts of the screen they want to keep private.

Actually, users are now allowed to delete the screenshot attachment altogether if they feel that way.

Are your users visual types? Instead of shaking their device or taking a screenshot, you can put a floating Report a bug button to be constantly visible inside your app. No way to miss that.


February 25, 2019

What's new

Users can change their brush color to mark the bugs more creatively and clearly.

From now on, your users can report bugs with Shake while on a plane or in a subway. Hooray for full offline support!

Resolved issues

Looooong bug descriptions would cause the SDK screen to start jumping up and down on a user's phone. Now, everything is running smoothly.


January 28, 2019

What's new

If your users want to report bugs by taking a screenshot — instead of shaking their phone — you are all in luck because Shake SDK can now be invoked that way too. Head over to Invoke to choose your desired SDK invoke gesture.
