Log Leech allows you to view your system logs in a beautiful and easy-to-understand format.

Whenever an application on your system encounters something unexpected, it typically creates a log entry in a hidden file called the console log. While every mac comes with a utility to view this file, it unhelpfully displays every log entry from every application in a big jumbled mess.

Using an innovative UI, Log Leech makes it easy to find and view the information that each application is reporting. Log Leech allows you to search, sort, and filter log entries to make system administration and troubleshooting easier than more...

LL performs very well for me and does just what it says, very fast, useful and informative, easy to read and to digest..

Log files can get to be VERY large quite quickly, and the ability to examine these in a much more orderly manner than just the raw log file is just so much easier and far less daunting.

The developer was very quick to respond to a small Bug only affecting Snow Leopard - thanks Andy, much appreciated.

I like the fact that it lists the logs in a uniformed way and allows me to review errors in a nice GUI.

Now if someone can create a program that points non-developers to the exact nature of the error/crash, it would be a big help.

The exact nature of a crash is often hard to interpret even for a developer. :) See http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#technotes/tn2004/tn2123.html for more info about crash reports - generally all the relevant part for you is Exception Information... Sometimes the crashed thread's stack may be of some use unless the developer stipped the debugging symbols and given he used some meaningful method/function names...

Looks nice and feels nice.

But it is missing 2 key commands. Reveal in Finder and Delete Log.

Sorry but for $10 I'd rather use the Console application which not only displays my logs but also allows me to locate them on the HD or delete them too.
