Remote console logging with Android thanks to @paul_kinlan

8 May
1. Connect phone to USB

2. ON ANDROID DEVICE:
Go to Settings, Application menu, Development menu, and turn on (if not already) “USB Debugging” and “Stay Awake”

3. ON OSX:
With Android SDK installed:
$ ./adb devices 
List of devices attached 

123400000C

        device

$  ./adb -s 

123400000C

 logcat

Note you don’t need a rooted device for this. Maybe some devices are very locked down though, but it “just worked” for me.) And for bonus points, install Eclipse and you can run DDMS to get screenshots.
