Airbrake vs Crashlytics: What are the differences?

Airbrake: Airbrake captures and groups errors in Ruby, iOS, Django, PHP & more. Airbrake collects errors for your applications in all major languages and frameworks. We alert you to new errors and give you critical context, trends and details needed to find and fix errors fast; Crashlytics: The world's most powerful, yet lightest weight crash reporting solution. Free for everybody. Instead of just showing you the stack trace, Crashlytics performs deep analysis of each and every thread. We de-prioritize lines that don't matter while highlighting the interesting ones. This makes reading stack traces easier, faster, and far more useful! Crashlytics' intelligent grouping can take 50,000 crashes, distill them down to 20 unique issues, and then tell you which 3 are the most important to fix.

Airbrake and Crashlytics are primarily classified as "Exception Monitoring" and "Mobile Error Monitoring" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Airbrake are:

  • Dupe Detection- Developers will only receive an email once when an error occurs — rather than getting buried under an error email avalanche.
  • Auto Resolve- An action on each application deployment — that way developers can focus on the problems that exist today, not the ones from last month.
  • Github Aware- Airbrake is github-aware, and can link code in your Airbrake error stack traces to the corresponding locations on github.

On the other hand, Crashlytics provides the following key features:

  • Instead of just showing you the stack trace, Crashlytics performs deep analysis of each and every thread. We de-prioritize lines that don't matter while highlighting the interesting ones. This makes reading stack traces easier, faster, and far more useful!
  • Crashlytics' intelligent grouping can take 50,000 crashes, distill them down to 20 unique issues, and then tell you which 3 are the most important to fix.
  • Now you'll get precise information on the performance of the devices that your apps run on. We'll let you know if the crash only happens on a specific model or generation of a device. We'll even tell you other information, like whether your app only crashes in landscape mode, or whether the proximity sensor is always on.

"Reliable" is the top reason why over 26 developers like Airbrake, while over 74 developers mention "Crash tracking" as the leading cause for choosing Crashlytics.

9GAG, Yelp, and PayPal are some of the popular companies that use Crashlytics, whereas Airbrake is used by Stack Exchange, thoughtbot, and Mailgun. Crashlytics has a broader approval, being mentioned in 352 company stacks & 69 developers stacks; compared to Airbrake, which is listed in 91 company stacks and 22 developer stacks.
