    Log view and email

    Hello, I'm not able to view saved logs on my mobile device. Is there any app what I have to install to be able to do it? I also can't send them via email. Only opportunity I have is to save them to cloud.

    Loading for a while and then I'm back on saved logs. App is VCDS-Mobile assistant from google play. It doesn't matter if I use app or browser.

    It appears something switched recently with android. In the past, the log would display in plain text in the browser. It appears chrome does not like the .log file extension and tries to download.

    heres a quick and dirty work around until we find a better fix:

    Download a text editor on the play store. I used quick edit:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....edit&hl=en_US

    Use VCDS-Mobile in a web browser and click the log to download the file. Once downloaded, launch the file and tell it to open with the text editor. It will now associate the .log filetype with that editor.

    Can you not just re-associate '.log' with Chrome?
