Improvements to for better debugging



Thought I'd share my slightly modified version of, which has some improvements:

* It extracts the proper package name from the XML manifest;
* It clears the log file (so that you avoid dumping many pages of useless info);
* It automatically starts the app using "adb shell am start";
* It adds a filter to logcat so that we capture (mostly) the messages related to our app.
