If you ever experience a crash with PKard Reader, we would definitely like to hear about it. More so if you are able to easily reproduce this error. Please follow these steps on how to get us the crash log and a PKard Reader log file:

- Quit PKard Reader if it is still running
- Relaunch PKard Reader

- Tap Advanced > Diagnostics

Once you have enabled Diagnostic mode, exit the Settings menu and reproduce the error. Return to the Diagnostic menu and tap Email log. Change the email address from to your personal email address. Next are the steps on getting the Crash log:
