Another way is to use a third-party application like ProGuardian which can monitor applications in the background and notify you if something goes wrong.
The other option is to use ADB (Android Debug Bridge) which allows you to send commands to a device and access various debug logs. You can also use ADB shell to examine running processes, variables and memory contents.
