I went ahead and tried Xlog. It does what it promises and it does it well. I'm sure this will come in handy sometimes.

On top of it, it's free!

Does this install anything on your computer or is it a self-contained app that doesn't alter anything on your system?

Really wish this wasn't only in the App Store and could be downloaded directly from the dev.

It can't install anything on your system because that would violate app store guidelines.

This application seems to me very interesting. Too bad it is only possible to get it from the apple store, I avoid as much as possible. I will then not use it.

I see these type of comments too often and while I agree with you (I'm not too happy with the Appstore), you shouldn't rate down the App based on this. The App itself is probably excellent!
