This flow logs all toast messages that appear on screen, resolving each time the name of an app that posted it.

Toasts are short text bubbles that any app can display in the bottom of the screen for 2.5 or 5 seconds. App developers use them when message is not so important or too short to use notification. Read more here: https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/notifiers/toasts

Premium is not required (4 blocks).

Usage
May be useful in such cases:
