Creastoric Software ( has introduced Log Leech for Mac OS X. The US$10 app allows you to view your system logs in an easy-to-understand format.

Log Leech allows you to search, sort, and filter log entries. 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, according to the folks at Creastoric Software.

Using an innovative user interface, Log Leech makes it easy to find and view the information that each application is reporting, they add. It requires Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard or higher. Log Leech is Universal Binary, so runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel Macs.
