This software checks logging activity on your phone and lets you know where the logging data is going to. Additionally, it can also look for Google and HTC usage logs, Dropbox logs, etc.
There are two versions of this logging checker – free and paid. The paid version guides you to remove Carrier IQ activity. Before installing, you need to ensure that your phone is rooted and ‘Unknown sources’ option is enabled from Settings > Applications.
