Hello fellow XDA-Developers members!
Recently, I made a blog post(available at r3pwn.github.io) about Google's first-party apps' debugging settings. Afterwards, people asked me to make an automated app to Enable/Disable these settings menus at will.
Well, here you have it:

#DebugAllTheThings
Google Play Link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...SomeSandwiches
OR
You can grab the apk at the link below:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByQ...it?usp=sharing

For those on Android "L", follow this post to fix any issues.

Changelog and FAQ will be in the second post.

Need help?
Hit me up on Twitter or Google+ or, you know, just send me a PM.

Changelog:
Current version:
1.2
- Bugs squashed
- On-the-fly changing (no reboot needed, except on android L)
- Adds a check for non-rooted users
- Reports there may be some compatibility issues on Android L
- Added Newsstand Debugging
- First build uploaded to the Play Store!
- Play Store will open in a new Activity, instead of in my app, so as to avoid any confusion

Older versions:
1.1
- Safer SQLite3 check.

1.0
- Not yet published to Play Store
- Google Play Store Debugging
- Google Hangouts Debugging
- Google Play Books Debugging
- Google Play Music Debugging
- Added SQLite3 binary check

FAQ:
It says I don't have SQLite3 installed. What do I do?
You should have them installed by default, but in case you don't, you can install them with an app (not made by me). Just search "SQLite Installer for Root" and download the first app listed.

So I did everything, enabled the settings, but where are they?
You can find them in the locations listed below after opening the corresponding app(s):
Google Play Store - Open the slide-out tab. It should be below the Feedback button. It's called "Debug Settings".
Hangouts - Either hit your menu button or tap the Three-dot menu button in the top-right corner. It should be at the bottom of that list. It's called "Debug".
Play Music - Open the standard Settings menu and it should be at the bottom (Just one option about logging, pretty boring).
Play Books - Tap the Three-dot menu button in the top-right corner. It should be at the bottom of that list. It's called "Testing".
Newsstand - Open the standard Settings menu and it should be at the bottom (just one option called "Designer Mode", pretty boring).

Thanks for this all, it's a useful utility. This could be a splash perhaps? Haha
