Description Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2014-07-23 10:07:05 UTC
Currently when an app crashes (either on device or in the simulator), it can be frustrating for customers to figure out why, because many don't know where to look for more information.

So the idea would be to provide a more helpful diagnostic when the app crashes, something along the lines of: "It looks like your app crashed; if this is the case you may be able to find more information in the iOS device log, XCode's crash reports, system console, etc."
