LauncherActivity error


I have run into an error when trying to start the Spy Mobile feature with android on Mac

The error is “Error occurred when starting the app. Original error: appname.LauncherActivity never started.” The app is actually started on the device however, but it soon closes on its own.

Everything worked fine on windows, but on Mac i’m having difficulties. I have developer options enabled, the mac trusts my device, and i also have Android Studio installed.

Thanks in advance for your help.


Hi there,

Can you set ‘Appium Log Level’ to ‘Debug’ and then try again? Then send us the generated logs so that we can investigate further. The settings is available from Window -> Katalon Studio Preferences -> Katalon -> Mobile -> Appium Log Level.
