About Log Application Usage 1.1

Source code

This small application is invisible and writes launch and quit times of all applications to the file "Log Application Usage.log" in the preferences folder.

This application runs in the background and can be quit using the Activity Monitor (see /Applications/Utilities folder).

Useful if you have an internet café and you want to track which applications are used.

This application is freeware and provided as is.

Requires Mac OS X 10.3.9.

New stuff added in version 1.1

  • For developers: Using "Make Invisible" tool to make the application background only instead of Resource.
  • Now an Universal Binary Application on Mac OS X.
