proxy – Are there any http proxies like fiddler or wireshark on android?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I need to see what page an Android App is calling from my device. Are there any Apps like Fiddler or Wireshark to see what´s happening behind?

How to solve:

I normally use a laptop with Wireshark instead of trying to capture on the device:

Setup the laptop to serve as the access point for the device and you can capture everything going on, and the wireshark display for the data is pretty rich.

If your Android device supports a proxy (apparently there are apps for that), you can just use Fiddler. See http://blogs.msdn.com/b/fiddler/archive/2011/01/09/debugging-windows-phone-7-device-traffic-with-fiddler.aspx for equivalent instructions for Windows Phone 7.
