Crash Logs

If OnSong abruptly returns to the iOS home screen, this is a sign of a crash condition. These can happen for a number of reasons that require some more troubleshooting than your library diagnostics can provide. If you send your diagnostics to OnSong after a crash, we may request a crash log to determine what is happening. Here are instructions for finding a crash log for OnSong when using MacOS or Windows.

Sync with iTunes

Crash logs are transferred to iTunes whenever you sync your device. Connect your device using the included USB sync/charge cable and open iTunes. Open the iOS device in iTunes and click on the Sync button. This will copy the crash logs on the device to your computer.

Retrieve the Crash Log

This process is slightly different depending on the operating system you are running with iTunes. Please note that you can find your device's name within iTunes, or by opening the Settings app on your device and choosing General » About.
