Firebase Crashlytics

Crashlytics is almost a defacto standard in the Android world for tracking crashes in the field. I've used it on the last 4 Android projects I've been on.It's not as helpful on iOS' stacktraces but I'm not sure if anything would be better because iOS stack traces are from ObjC code which is not as useful as Java stacktraces.

Sentry

[Sentry] is honestly an amazing product. It allows us to detect errors in real time complete with stack traces and any extra accompanying information the developer wants to provide in the alert. With the alerting into Slack it has allowed us to quickly triage and tag in people who need eyes on a specific issue. It would be really useful in any Saas product environment.

Pros

Firebase Crashlytics

  • Detecting Crashes
  • Showing backtraces to the exact line of code causing the crash
  • Fine-grained Notifications

Sentry

  • Great web interface. Lots of data available in a really clean format, with filtering options and more.
  • Per-user exception tracking. User is complaining about something being broken? Look up their account ID in Sentry and you can see if they've run into any exceptions (with device information included, of course).
  • Source map uploading. Took a little while to figure this out but now we have our deploy script upload sourcemaps to Sentry on each deployment, meaning we get to see stack traces that aren't obfuscated!
  • Very generous free tier – 10,000 events per month. We're nowhere near that yet.

Cons

Firebase Crashlytics

  • An easier way to understand app version adoption rates alongside crashes.
  • I feel like the platform keeps trying to become more of an all encompassing analytics platform and should stick at what it does best—crash monitoring.
  • Now that it has been acquired by Google, I hope things like navigation and implementation don't become more cumbersome as has been the recent case with Google Analytics.

Sentry

  • The UI is overwhelming and it takes time to "digest it"
  • It would have been nice to have the ability to "group together" minor releases into one that represents a bigger release

Alternatives Considered

Firebase Crashlytics

BuddyBuild's crash reporting tool is a far cry from Crashlytics, and the interface is also not nearly as good.
Steven Hong | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sentry

I think Sentry is far more user-friendly and has a better UI. Sentry is also a more affordable option.

Return on Investment

Firebase Crashlytics

  • Event tracking helps us identify issues in real time
Junu Kang | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sentry

  • The first notice of an issue more than paid for it for the month.
  • However, it's not as useful if you aren’t doing active development.
