Twitter’s Fabric is a mobile development toolkit and today they have announced a new app. In the past, developers were forced to check Fabric on their computers, but now should be excited to hear that they can view all the stats from their mobile device.
Developers will be able to keep track of the health of their app, see its monthly active users, discover crashes affecting specific users, and more. This should be helpful for developers while on the go or when out of the office.
