From Tom, DL2RUM:
RUMlog is a logging, QSL handling and printing tool, especially made for the short wave DXer, made by a DXer. Basic logging features are included for the higher bands up to 1.2 cm and for satellite. RUMlog can handle an unlimited number of logs and an unlimited number of QSOs per log. An user editable, all time country database is used for automatic DXCC recognition. RUMlog includes calculations, routines, tables and an interactive gray line map to support the user in gray line dxing. Using RUMlog you can print QSL card and address labels on your favorite label size and manage your incoming paper QSLs. The Logbook of The World (LoTW) and eQSL are fully supported, and you can create files for the Global QSL service very quick. You can get different statistics for paper- or LoTW QSLs. RUMlog can build and use an own manager and IOTA database, extracting the information from dx-cluster spots. Provisions are made to query the qrz.com online library. Save the retrieved data into the Mac's address book. RUMlog keeps you up to date about worked, confirmed or missing DXCCs and provides you with country lists and detailed statistics. Quick log searches or more detailed log queries and export routines are possible. RUMlog can establish multiple dx-cluster connection via the internet or to your local skimmer. RUMlog will separate DX-spots and alert you via e-mail or Growl when there is a ,new one' DXCC or IOTA spotted. Multiple interactive band maps virtualize activities on the air. LoTW users are identified in dx-spots. RUMlog can interface with two transceivers, setting the main parameter on your TRX from the logbook or vice versa. Kenwood, Elecraft, Yaesu, Icom and TenTec transceivers are supported. More controls are provided for the Elecraft K3. RUMlog has import and export functions to allow exchange of log data in different formats to other logging tools. RUMlog can interface with Google Maps (Web-Browser based) and Google Earth. (Must be installed on your computer). Except the DXCC statistics, RUMlog tracks the most interesting areas of the world for the most important awards: IOTA islands, CQ zones, ITU zones, Grid Squares, US States and German DOKs. Work CW, RTTY and other digital QSOs direct in the RUMlog application, using cocoaModem as interface. The data (log + trx) exchange with fldigi is supported. The WinKeyer and few microHAM devices are supported.

"DAMN FINE PIECE OF KIT!!!!"
Version: RUMlog 4.9
Price, developer does continually work at refinements/suggestions and is updated, works very quickly, if you are a Mac user then you know there ain't much software that does all this-so support the developer, real 'Swiss army knife' product, and yes it does have everything which the other reviewer has noted so I'm not going to duplicate, layout is logical and well thought out for the user, great setup preferences...
Doesn't interface to my Drake 7 line series!!
There are few products for amateurs using Macs (Aether, MacLoggerDX), but after using this product it does a great deal to satisfy the serious amateur. True, MacLogger may have some other advantages, but you do pay good money for it too. In fact even after using MacLogger, I have always kept RumLog going too, in parallel.
As I am not using gear that can be interfaced to any application, then I would have to say that RumLog would come out in front as a manual logging program.
There are also a myriad of products for PCs, but RumLog is up there with the best of 'em, in my opinion. Linux has some fine offerings too.
Don't be put off because it's free. Oh yeah, there is no time limited features or stuff either, because of the price. This is an excellent example of using the Mac interface to create a very useable product.
Have a look at the other product I've used too RumPed. Whilst it is a contest log, it is another excellent product, as you can import the log back into RumLog.
Look, let's face it - there is not a lot of stuff specifically for Macs, and I reckon that Tom, DL2RUM deserves credit for creating great products.
You really have to give RumLog a go.
"Excellent program and Great support"
Version: RUMlog 4.3.2
Paper, LoTW and eQSL tracking.
Immediate indication of what bands and modes you have worked or confirmed a country.
Color coded indications in the Packet window of mode/band/country worked or confirmed.
CW integration with Winkeyer, microham or K3.
None that I can think of.
In addition to being an excellent logger one of RUMlog's real positives is it's ability to supply reports on QSL's either Paper, LoTW or eQSL.
Program makes it very easy to update your LoTW account and tracks confirmations.
Also, the DX Spot window color codes Mode/Band/Country worked or confirmed.
Tom, the author, is quick to respond to problems and to add features.
Generates files to upload to LoTW and eQSL marks the QSO's as confirmation sent and also easily downloads and marks confirmations by direct connection to the LoTW server, no need to download a file.
"Excellent Logging Program"
Version: RUMlog 4.2.2
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Great logging program.
Even though I use MacLoggerDX as my primary logger because it supports my radio and a few other reasons, I have used RUMLog for a couple of years to maintain my log database and to check previous band/mode QSO's
Great sorting and tracking features as well as a terrific Packet Cluster interface that alerts you to needed spots in a variety of useful ways.
Also, it's integration with Logbook of the World is better than anything I have found on the Mac.
The ability to look at worked/confirmed stats for Paper only, LotW only or combined is very well done.
Also integrates well with eQSL.
Terrific and responsive support.
