OSX operational

Love the app! Just wished there was a option to check for updates button in menu or on app as needed and also let you plug in any information regarding contesting and events without a preselection. Be Awosome if you could do a Windows version to keep multi-systems organized! Thanks for the Mac side of logging and certainly would recommend this to all OSX users!

Nice Mac Logger

Still the best native MacOSX look and feel.

Back to the Drawing Board

I find this program unstable in logging contacts. If I change the date, it zero's out the time. If I change the time, it zeros out the date. I have lost contacts by the program overwriting existing contacts. I want my contacts to be iron clad! Do not overwrite without password authorization or at least do not touch existing logs. I do not trust this program because I have lost contacts.
