USB Device Info

Android 3.1 introduced USB hostmode which allows the user to plug USB devices to your Android tablet in the same way as a Desktop PC and extend its functionality (if the tablet has the correct drivers of course).

This application will provide information about almost all currently plugged-in USB device (see below for more info about the 'almost').

Information includes:
•The Device class
•The USB device path
•The Vendor ID (VID) and the Product ID (PID).
•A List of all interfaces and their endpoints.

If you download the accompanying databases, the application will also be able to provide you with additional info such as the Vendor of the device (which is not necessarily the brand!), the vendor's logo and the product name.

This application uses two different methods to collect information:

1. Android mode will use the native android USB API.
2. Linux mode will parse /sys/bus/usb/devices/.

Each mode (Android/Linux) will provide slightly different information. For example Android mode will give you more information about a device's endpoints and interfaces, while Linux mode will give more information about the device itself (serial number, how it identifies itself, etc.)

Device Subclass resolution will be added in the next version.

I wrote this application as an exercise to explore fragments and the new USB host API. Hopefully it will be useful to someone else.

•The database is parsed from:

•All logos are the property of their respective owners

•No ads.

•Source code:

Please email me with any bugs/problems/feature requests. I cannot reply to market comments which can make debugging difficult.

Not bad Shows info as expected, but logos are almost unreadable on HD screen.

Excellent For those complaining that it doesn't show certain USB devices (like with the Samsung Galaxy Tab), that's actually a bug within the Samsung kernel not firing intents for some HID devices!! If you click the linux tab you should be able to see all devices even if they are not detected by the android API. If it still doesn't work the problem may be your USB cable (it has to be an OTG Host cable), and if that still isn't the problem it could be you're not on honeycomb 3.1+. Worked well for me.

Needs fixing. Device database never finishes downloading. Which is a shame, because the app is exactly what I needed.

A Google User

Extremely Useful! I've used this app to test out various random USB devices. A very clean and easy way to view all of the major details of a USB device (Interfaces, Endpoints, etc). I only wish there was a way to connect to an endpoint and have a terminal-like interface to send and receive data to/from the device manually.

Good app This is good app. It show me the usb Vendor ID on my tablet so now I can actually start testing and debugging on it. Didn't expect anything else so it all good for me...

A Google User

I'll change my vote It's the only program I know of it's kind (for the android platform)

Great Program Has been very useful in debugging some USB problems.

Claudio Nasich

Useful Concise and useful information. Just what I need. Thanks

A Google User

Looks nice but... It doesn't seem to work on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1- it does show me devices that Samsung knows about- like my flash drives- but it won't tell me about devices it DOESN'T know about- like my prolific-based GPS. At least with Windows I get the VID/PID, but here I get nothing.

Grammy Anon

Works for me. No bones just info. Thanks shug.

sre parthiban

Cruz Monrreal

Simple, quick, and exactly what I needed.

Andrej Mejac

Nice and stable All info you need from usb buses, very neat.

A Google User

Still in development I see the potential for this software, only rated as such until updates. Tmobile galaxy s2, custom room etc for now, it doesn't display anything after downloading.

Anton Ard

Great program! Very usefull for diagnostics.

Андрей Самусев

The best app, but... I can't see (use) Settings menu this application on device with next display parameters: landscape, 1024x600. And I c an't download device descriptions DB.

Anton Smirnov

Just works

John H

Great Sorted out my problem with a webcam, seeing it connected OK told me it was a software issue not hardware

Almost perfect On one hand, it is the first of the USB diag apps that I have seen that gives this rather important piece of info: is the device connected in USB 3 or 2? 5-star material right there. On the other, when you tell it to download the vendor info (2.5 MB as it tells you), it gets stuck on file 2/3 at 3%. And we can't have that, can we? Then after you kill it, it won't start anymore. So -1 star until it is fixed.

William Turnip

Nice Now I believe my phone can use DAC

Michael Heath
