A new version of Log Leech is out today. It updates the Mac version by doing some UI clean up, improving HTML export, adding a log entry detail view, and improving performance and stability. In addition, version 1.5 introduces a universal iOS version of the app. The iOS version is quite similar to the Mac version; the main difference is instead of providing an export function, it allows you to email the logs to the address of your choice.
The 1.5 release for Mac is free for existing customers, and $9.99 for new customers. It can be found either in Fortunate Bear’s online store or Apple’s Mac App Store. The iOS version is $4.99, and can be found in the App Store.
See the press release for more information.
I’ve been meaning to write about some of the major problems that I have with the App Store, both the Mac and iOS varieties. But honestly, I don’t have a whole lot to add to what Wil Shipley and Craig Hockenberry have already said. Instead, I’ll link to the bugs I’ve written up, and encourage you to do the same.
I know there’s been a lot of pessimism about writing up Radars lately, including from yours truly. But the truth is filing bugs is the only official way Apple will listen, so the pragmatic side of me wins out. It’s not that I necessarily think filing bugs will cause a change, but it’s the only possible way of affecting changing that’s been given to me.
I officially released Black Maria today. If you like card games — especially if you like ones that require strategy — and you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, you should give it a try. If you don’t know how to play hearts, no problem, the game will teach you how. It’s also free, so there’s no reason not to go try it right now.
