Diving Log for Android – Statistics & Charts

Friday, August 26th, 2016

Today I’ve released an update of Diving Log for Android with a vastly improved statistics section. It was available for some time in the beta channel, but now it is released for everyone. You can view now most of the charts which are available in the desktop version and the statistic section is now also optimized for 7 and 10 inch tablets. The app is now also localized to Italian and the text selection overlay toolbar works better. Photos taken from within Diving Log are now also added to the Android Gallery app.

Diving Log 6.0.5 released

Saturday, June 4th, 2016

A new update for Diving Log 6.0 is now available, with the following features and improvements:

  • Diving Log for Android Sync via USB and Dropbox
  • USB Sync for MTP connected Android devices
  • Downloader (New: Cochran, Shearwater Perdix, Cressi Newton, Aqualung i450T, Aladin Sport, Aqualung i300, Beuchat Mundial)
  • New ISCan APECS 4 Import
  • New Aqualung Diverlog Import
  • Subsurface Import improvements
  • LogTrack Import improvements for Mantis M2
  • Fix: When using autostart, update check does not block the application anymore
  • Bug Fixes

USB Sync for MTP connected Android devices

Syncing with Android devices via USB is now a lot easier. In the past, you could not save your logbook file directly to the device when it was connected in MTP mode, which almost all devices do nowadays. Instead you would have to save the file to the PC and copy it manually in Windows Explorer.

With this update you can now sync to (and from) the Android device directly even in MTP mode. In the upper left corner the device should show up and Diving Log will sync directly to the correct folder. This works for all compatible Android dive log apps (Diving Log, DiveMate, etc.):

Diving Log for Android Update

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

I’ve released an update for Diving Log on Android with the following new features:

  • Add new dive based on previous dive
  • DiveMate Import
  • Camera Capture
  • Photo full screen image viewer

When tapping on the add button (+) in the main screen, you can now either add an empty dive or use the last dive as a template. That will duplicate the last dive and you don’t have to fill in all data again.

If DiveMate is installed you can also import new dives from DiveMate directly into your Diving Log logbook on Android. That way you can download your dive computer with DiveMate and import the new dives (make sure you export to “DivingLog” format in DiveMate).

You can now also take photos with the camera and add these images to your logbook. And last but not least tapping on an image will show the full resolution image in the Android gallery photo viewer with pinch to zoom support (this works only for images that were added with the latest Diving Log app on Android).

Available on Google Play

In DiveMate, tap on “Tools > Backup & Sync > File export > DivingLog 5/6”. Then you can import the dives into Diving Log on Android or Windows.
