Logger for Shortcuts 4+

Developer console

Snailed It Development Ltd

    • $4.99


Logger is the first developer console designed for Shortcuts.

Building complex shortcuts is now easier than ever! Use the Logger's shortcut actions to write messages to the console. See them posted in realtime as your shortcut runs - no more Quick Look actions required.

Use the powerful filtering tools to drill down into the output. Filter by category, device, date, contents, search or tags.

All your messages are synced securely between your devices using iCloud and you can even export your logs to plain text or markdown.

What’s New

Version 1.2.2

- "Random Colour" button is now a little less random: It will no longer sometimes select the colour that the tag is already using (making the button appear to have done nothing).
- "Random Colour" button had no accessibility label.
- Improved appearance of tags list when the window is expanded

A night/day difference for developing Shortcuts.

Earlier this summer I spent days developing Shortcut automations for a project that would have taken me weeks of absolute drudgery. It took me “days” and not “day” because I had no practical way of seeing why my shortcut wasn’t working, and my workarounds were almost as tedious as the project I was trying to automate.

Logger is the solution. I just worked through a similar project with Logger on hand, and EVERYTHING went so much more smoothly—I could see where I’d told Shortcuts to do something foolishly, I could see where inputs and outputs deviated from my intentions, I could see everything. Project took me a day, and not days.

Must-have app for debugging Shortcuts

If you have any interest in writing shortcuts for your iOS device, this is an indispensable app. I can't recommend it highly enough. It's been we'll worth the purchase price for me.

Broken on iOS 16.1.1 and macOS 13.2

Currently, this app opens up with a black screen on iOS and does not open at all on macOS. I really liked this app for debugging shortcuts, but I hadn't intentionally used it in at least a few months, so I can't give the exact version in which this app stopped working. My best guess is that the last major releases of both iOS and macOS broke the app probably due to some under-the-hood changes to the Shortcuts app. I hope the developer is able to address this breaking issue!

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear you're having issues. Could you get in touch with us at logger@snailedit.dev and we'll do our best to help? As far as we're aware, the app should still be working fine on all versions of iOS 16 and macOS 13.
