Native vs. Cross-platform – Which Mobile App Development Strategy is Best for Your Business?
Natam Oliveira | May 18, 2023
No matter how unique your app and your target audience are, there is one common goal that mobile developers can agree on: to deliver a crash-free application.
What can aid you pursuing this so-called perfection?
In order to do that, developers have to recur to tools focused on detecting and warning about any errors or crashes. Many companies have created tools – like Crashlytics, Flurry, Bugsnag, Instabug, HockeyApp and Raygun – with this goal.
Curiously, even though these professional and reliable tools are focused on mobile development, they’re website-based applications, so they don’t provide real-time push notifications.
Developers must either rely on refreshing their web browser or wait for what can be a very long time to an e-mail notification arrive.
As a consequence, your app may spend a long time out in the open with users struggling to dodge a crash – without you even realising it.
Well, not anymore! From now on, you won’t have to go after your app’s crash data.
Our team would like to finally deliver Notificrash: a mobile-first solution that is able to warn you about errors and crashes with push notifications in real-time!

It all started a year ago, when some of our Cakers were in the US and one of our apps – Camio – had a new feature released on a Friday. The app was running on Android and an update in the server triggered a bunch of crashes during the whole weekend.
At that time, the Cakers used a website-based app to keep track of the crashes. However, the website took at least 24 hours to identify it and list it up, and the notification e-mails were only read on Monday. More than 4,000 crashes related to that same new feature had taken place over the weekend.
Back then there was no available tool with:
That scenario made our company wish to create a 100% mobile app able to track crashes in a very user-friendly, smart and straightforward way: ergo Notificrash.
We all know that errors happen when we’re developing an app, and how important it is to be notified about them as soon as possible. And that’s when our app takes the stage!
The app is comprised by two parts:
This is how Notificrash works:
By using Notificrash, you’ll be able to understand what is breaking your app and fix it as soon as possible, providing a better experience for your users in the long run.
We also use Notificrash for our own apps, such as Camio, VSporto and Notificrash itself.
There are two ways of becoming a Notificrash user:
