Appsee Android (Native) Integration Instructions

Important Note

Video recording is not supported when running in Emulator. Please use a real device to test video recordings.

You can install the Android SDK through gradle (recommended), manually or through Fabric.
  • Configure your project with gradle if you haven't done so.
    If you are not using gradle, you can install Appsee manually.
  • Add the Appsee as a dependency to your build.gradle file: dependencies {
      compile 'com.appsee:appsee-android:+'
  • In every activity that is an entry point* to your app add: import com.appsee.Appsee;and add a call to Appsee.start inside the onCreate method:
    Appsee.start("YOUR API KEY"); You can view all your API keys in your dashboard.
  • If you're using ProGuard, add the following configuration to the "proguard-project.txt" file: -keep class com.appsee.** { *; }
    -dontwarn com.appsee.**
    -keep class** { *; }
    -keep interface** { *; }
    -keepattributes SourceFile,LineNumberTable
    And remove the following, if defined: -renamesourcefileattribute SourceFile
  • Review the SDK API reference for more options (adding custom events, setting custom user information, hiding sensitive user information etc.).
  • That's it, you're good to go!
    Launch your app, use it for a few seconds and press the "home" button.
    Visit the dashboard to view your first recording.
  • *Entry activities are usually those which have a custom <intent-filter> element in the AndroidManifest.xml file.
