AppDynamics vs Crashlytics: What are the differences?

AppDynamics: Application management for the cloud generation. AppDynamics develops application performance management (APM) solutions that deliver problem resolution for highly distributed applications through transaction flow monitoring and deep diagnostics; 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.

AppDynamics can be classified as a tool in the "Performance Monitoring" category, while Crashlytics is grouped under "Mobile Error Monitoring".

Some of the features offered by AppDynamics are:

  • End User Monitoring
  • Real-Time Business Transaction Monitoring
  • Visualize & Manage your Entire Application

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.

"Deep code visibility" is the top reason why over 10 developers like AppDynamics, while over 74 developers mention "Crash tracking" as the leading cause for choosing Crashlytics.

According to the StackShare community, Crashlytics has a broader approval, being mentioned in 350 company stacks & 68 developers stacks; compared to AppDynamics, which is listed in 10 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.
