Which error & crash reporting tool is best to replace Xamarin Insights ?

ValentinBaudotValentinBaudot USMember ✭✭

I used to use Xamarin Insight for error and crash reports, to understand user problems encountered. I was able to look all type of errors happened and when, from a user login.
I don't see anything like that in microsoft app center, that is why I am asking the question: which exceptions and crash reporting tool is best to use ?

I had a quick look on crashlytics but it appears to be a bit complicated to integrate with Xamarin.
Which one do you guys use ?

Thanks for your feedbacks

    We're pretty happy with Appsee, what makes it great is the user session recordings because they do all the crash recreation for you, so it's easier to track what caused the crash.

    AppCenter is Microsofts own framework providing crash reporting, logging, push notifications, analytics, building, distribution (update push notifications).
    It used to be called HockeyApp, then MobilityCenter, and has changed name again and merged Xamarin Insights into MobilityCenter. It supports Xamarin.Forms (Android, iOS, UWP) as well as native Android and IOS; however, documentation is somewhat confusing as the UWP does not come always as supported or fully supported.
    One strange requirement is to not use any other reporting packages if using AppCenter

    Xamarin IOS and Android only

    No support for UWP or Xamarin.Forms.
    Crashlytic is now part of Firebase

    No support for UWP or Xamarin.Forms, retention policy
