Have you tried searching in Messages on the Mac? Well don’t try now unless you want to get really frustrated. Among the app’s other numerous bugs, Messages can tend to suddenly throw a tantrum whenever the search bar is invoked.

Flexibits, makers of popular iPhone calendar app Fantastical, have announced their next app: Chatology, a tool for searching Messages on the Mac.

The only thing that’s available right now is a teaser page with the option to get notified when Chatology is available. Knowing Flexibits’ pedigree, the app will be exquisitely designed and helpful.

I’m interested to see Chatology, because I’m honestly surprised that an entire app is being devoted to just searching Messages. Seems like a lot of work for only one problem. And Apple has released a Mountain Lion update that is supposed to fix some of the issues with Messages. I’m sure Flexibits will pull it off regardless. We’ll have more on this app in the future.

Flexibits is supposedly also working on a Contacts app replacement, which sounds delightful.
