The following is copied from Apple's documentation. Please send crash reports to support@textasticapp.com.

Sending Crash Reports to a Developer

When the application you’re testing crashes, iOS creates a record of that event. The next time you connect your device to iTunes, iTunes downloads those records (known as crash logs) to your computer. To help get the problem fixed, you should send crash logs of the application you’re testing to its developer.

Sending Crash Reports from Macs

To send crash logs to developers:

  1. In the Finder, open a new window.

  2. Choose Go > Go to Folder.

  3. Enter ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice.
  4. Open the folder named after your device’s name.

  5. Select the crash logs named after the application you’re testing.

  6. Choose Finder > Services > Mail > Send File.

  7. In the New Message window, enter the developer’s email address in the To field and <application_name> crash logs from <your_name> (for example, MyTestApp crash logs from Anna Haro) in the Subject field.
  8. Choose Message > Send.

  9. In the Finder, you may delete the crash logs you sent to avoid sending duplicate reports later.

Sending Crash Reports from Windows

To send crash logs to developers, enter the crash log directory (<user_name> with your Windows user name.

Listing 9-1 Crash log storage on Windows Vista

C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Roaming\Apple computer\Logs\CrashReporter/MobileDevice 

Listing 9-2 Crash log storage on Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\<user_name>\Application Data\Apple computer\Logs\CrashReporter 

Open the folder named after your device’s name and send the crash logs for the application you’re testing in an email message using the subject-text format <application_name> crash logs from <your_name> (for example, MyTestApp crash logs from Anna Haro) to the application’s developer.

are the .plist crash logs in the ios settings app the same files as the ones you discribed?
I don't know. I don't see any plist files in the settings app on my iPad.
Sure? settings app -> about -> diagnostics & usage -> diagnostics & usage data
your name sounds german: einstellungen ->  info -> diagnose & nutzung -> diagnose- & nutzungsdaten i have hundreds of them
Ah, ok, you have to scroll down to see them. Looks like those are the same files, yes.
