1. Have iTunes send them automatically.
The first time you ever setup and synced your iOS device with iTunes it asked you if you would like to send diagnostic information to Apple anonymously. If you're like me, you probably said no. If you said yes, then iTunes would collect any crash reports it found during syncing, send them to Apple, and they would get forwarded to the appropriate application developer. So far we haven't received any crash reports this way. If you want to have them sent automatically here is what you need to do:
- Connect your device in iTunes.
- In the iTunes window, under the devices section of the sidebar you should see your device. If you Control-click (right-click) on your device a contextual menu will display.
- Choose the "Reset Warnings" option.
- Sync your device.
When you sync you should now see the following dialog.

If you choose OK, then iTunes will automatically forward all crash reports on your device to Apple which will sent them to the appropriate application developers including us.
2. Send them to us manually.
If you don't want to have iTunes do this for you, you can still send them to us manually. Rather than post these files on the forums, we would prefer that you email them to us at support AT accordancebible DOT com
First you need to navigate to the folder where iTunes copied any crash reports. This depends on what platform you are using.
- Mac OS X: ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<DEVICE_NAME>
- Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Application Data\Apple Computer\Logs\CrashReporter\MobileDevice\<DEVICE_NAME>
- Windows Vista or 7: C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\Logs\CrashReporter\MobileDevice\<DEVICE_NAME>
<USERNAME> is the user's login name for the computer. <DEVICE_NAME> is the name of the iPod touch or iPhone, for example, "Scott's iPhone".
We are only interested in .crash files. The crash report's file name will begin with "iAccord" and contain date/time information. In addition, <DEVICE_NAME> will appear at the end of the file name, before the extension. Here's an example of an iAccord crash filename off of my personal iPhone:
In your email, please describe as best you can what you were doing when the crash occurred.
Thanks in advance for your help.
