Chatology is message search made simple

If you use Messages or iChat, you probably know that searching messages to find important info from past chats can be frustrating. Perhaps you couldn't find what you were looking for, or your Mac slowed down so much that you gave up.

Chatology makes it easy to:
  • Find your messages instantly
  • Focus on a specified date range
  • Quickly isolate images or links from your messages
  • Chatology helps you find exactly what you're looking for without frustration.

This probably won't work will Android users right? Apple's next version of messages is going to do that so I just thought I would ask.

If you dropped your price to $4.99 you would probably sell ten times your sales at the current price of $19.99. It is not a necessary product for most users and I can't see people spending $19.99 for this product. I understand that programming is time consuming and developers deserve to get paid but I think that my suggestion will pay off ten fold for the developer. IMO!

I for one wouldn't purchase at the price of $19.99 but would certainly at $5.00.

Keep up the great work...

Second that, also want to see what 10.9 brings on this.

Great developers, no discussion about that but I prefer Fantastical for iPad #hint


Couldn't agree more


Ditto - i too would happily hand over $4.99, but $19.99, thanks but no.


Agreed. I've bought and am happy with Fantastical for Mac and iPhone, but this is just too expensive. Would buy in a second if $5.

I've been looking for an up-to-date replacement for Chat Transcript Manager for some time and this really seems to fit the bill. I purchased it today after playing with it for a bit. It supports both iChat and Messages, which is where Chat Transcript Manager fell down since it has not been updated in years. Chatology is filling the gap very nicely. My only constructive comment is that it seems a bit spendy, however there aren't many programs that fill this niche. I'm pleased so far.
