Crashlytics vs Stackdriver: What are the differences?

Developers describe Crashlytics as "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. On the other hand, Stackdriver is detailed as "Monitoring, logging, and diagnostics for applications on Google Cloud Platform and AWS". Google Stackdriver provides powerful monitoring, logging, and diagnostics. It equips you with insight into the health, performance, and availability of cloud-powered applications, enabling you to find and fix issues faster.

Crashlytics belongs to "Mobile Error Monitoring" category of the tech stack, while Stackdriver can be primarily classified under "Cloud Monitoring".

Some of the features offered by Crashlytics are:

  • 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.

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

  • Monitoring
  • Logging
  • Diagnostics

"Crash tracking" is the top reason why over 76 developers like Crashlytics, while over 17 developers mention "Monitoring" as the leading cause for choosing Stackdriver.

According to the StackShare community, Crashlytics has a broader approval, being mentioned in 478 company stacks & 442 developers stacks; compared to Stackdriver, which is listed in 144 company stacks and 137 developer stacks.
