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.

Diving Log for Android – Buddy Signature

Friday, May 13th, 2016

Your buddy can now sign your dives in Diving Log on your Android phone or tablet. Open a dive and scroll down to the bottom to find the new signature field. Tap on the field to sign a dive with your finger or digitizer pen. The signature will sync back to Diving Log on Windows where it can be displayed and printed.

In the desktop version you can view the signature either in the buddy popup menu or add it directly to your layout. When you click on the signature, it will open in a new window where you can sign dives also on a Windows PC with your mouse or touch screen. And last but not least you can add and print the signature in the report designer for your physical logbook.

Diving Log for Android

Saturday, April 9th, 2016

I think one of the most requested things during the past few years was an official Diving Log app for Android and today I’m happy to announce: Diving Log for Android is finally here! Today you you can download the app from the Google Play Store:

Available on Google Play

Please let me know what you think and if you find any bugs or problems. The app is using a modern Google Material design and is currently optimized for phones (a tablet UI will come later):

The app is free to open and view logbook files from Diving Log 6.0, editing requires an in-app purchase. This is similar to the Office apps, but without subscription. The app is using the native Diving Log logbook file format (SQLite), please click the link below how to sync with your PC:

New Diving Log Beta available

Monday, January 7th, 2013

Today you can download a new beta version of Diving Log 5.0. Make sure you have version 5.0.8 installed before installing the beta update. This update brings the following new features:

  • DiveMate USB for Android sync (see below)
  • Diveboard.com sync (see below)
  • Search dive sites online
  • Hungarian language support (special thanks to Attila!)
  • Import dive profile CSV files (Logbook Window -> Profile Tab)

DiveMate USB sync:

DiveMate_Tablet

DiveMate USB is a new app for Android tablets and smartphones, which can download several dive computers right on your phone or tablet. It is available in the Google Play Store and can be synchronized with Diving Log 5.0 via USB or Dropbox. I’m really happy to see this app joining the existing Android apps ScubaLog and Dive Log and now there are 3 apps you can choose from (or you can use all three, of course).

Diveboard.com Sync:

With Diveboard.com, another great online logbook is now compatible with Diving Log 5.0. You can upload and download your dives to the website from the “Web” toolbar button in the main toolbar. Diveboard.com is along with divelogs.de also one of the data providers for the new online dive site search in the map window. All your dives are uploaded as private dives, but if you want, you can make them public on the website afterwards.

Please note, this is a beta update, so if you find any problems or bugs, please let us know. The new DiveMate and Diveboard.com sync functions involve several parties, and while we’ve tested everything intensively, there is a good chance that there are still some issues.

Diving Log 5.0.8 released

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Diving Log 5.0.8 is now released and can be downloaded here. Please note: you can install the update setup only if you have version 5.0.7 or the latest beta. If you have an older version, please install the full setup instead. These are the new features:

Some of the new features were already shown in recent blog posts and are linked above. Here are some new additions:

Android SCUBALog export: I’m trying to provide some more options and choice for Android users by cooperating with other app developers and I’m glad that the first one is now available. You can export your data to the Android app “SCUBALog” (import is planned in the future). You’ll find an app switcher in the Android sync dialog where you can change the data format.

The app switcher is in the top right corner

Equipment weight calculation: You could enter the weight of each equipment item for some time in Diving Log, but up to now nothing was done with this information. But now you can select any number of items in the list and the overall weight is calculated at the bottom. This is useful when preparing for a vacation, for example. Additionally you can see the weight of all checked equipment items in the logbook per dive.

Skype integration: I’m sure many of you use Skype and now you can call a phone number right from your logbook by clicking the little Skype icon behind a number in the buddy and shop dialog. This works with the Skype desktop app, but also with the new Skype app for Windows 8. Make sure to enter the country code for each number if you want to use this feature, otherwise Skype seems to have problems. If you want to use your mobile phone, you can scan the QR code to quickly call that number.
