Diving Log for Android with multiple tank support

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

In Diving Log for Android you can now view and edit all tanks & gas mixtures, just like in the desktop version. When a dive has multiple tanks, you can swipe left and right on the tank panel in the dive overview page (indicated by the dots). In the edit screen, you can switch between tanks, add or delete them:

Diving Log 6.0.11 released

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

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

  • New Tank Pressure 1-3 Combined profile
  • New Tank Pressure (Calculated) Profile
  • Tank Gauge Improvements
  • Tanklist variables in Report Designer (all tanks)
  • Android MTP Sync in Windows Creators Update fixed
  • Ratio Divelogger 4 Import

If you don’t have an air-integrated dive computer, you can now view a calculated tank pressure profile, based on your SAC rate and depth profile. The result is surprisingly good (I’ve compared numerous recorded and calculated tank profiles). Below you can see a 70m dive with measured tank profile on top and calculated tank profile on bottom:

Measured and calculated tank profile

Here you can see another example of a dive with two tanks (sidemount) and several switches between both tanks. The calculated profile is almost identical to the measured profile of the two tanks:

Calculated tank profile with two tanks

You can see, even without air integrated dive computer you can now get a detailed tank profile in Diving Log. The tank gauge on the right is also using the calculated profile if no tank sensor data is present.

If you are diving with more than one tank pressure sensor, you can now view optionally all 3 tank profiles merged into one graphic:

3 Tank profiles in one graphic

And last but not least you can finally add the data of all tanks in the report designer to your print layouts. The data is provided in the form of several “LogTankList…” variables, which contain each data type (e.g. tank size) of all tanks in form of a list. You can combine them and get a nice table view of all your tanks:

Diving Log for Android update released

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

A new update of Diving Log for Android is now available on Google Play. It contains the following new features and improvements:

  • New: equipment used for a dive
  • New: dive type selection
  • Signature improvements
  • Dive profile fixes
  • SAC calculation fixes
  • Runtime permissions (Target API 23)

You can now link equipment to dives and select the type of the dive. If you’ve previously added this data in the desktop or iOS version, it will automatically show up in the Android app. You can also edit the dive types list (add, rename and change the order of dive types). The buddy signature supports now also “dots”.

The new version is using the new Android 6 runtime permissions, which means you don’t have to allow all permissions when installing the app. Instead, Diving Log will ask for specific permissions (e.g. GPS) if you want to use a function that needs that permission.

Diving Log 2.0 for Android released

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

One year after the initial release of Diving Log for Android, the latest update has finally reached feature parity with the Windows Phone version. You will find in the latest update the following improvements and new features:

  • Map navigation panel
  • Online dive site search
  • Nitrox, SAC & Unit Calculator
  • Android 7 split screen improvements
  • GPS coordinate capture improvements
  • Bug fixes

The map screen has received some significant improvements. You can now activate a navigation panel, which shows you your current position, speed, altitude and course. When you select a dive site flag you can see also the distance, target course, time to target and the ETA (estimated arrival time). This is useful if you’re on a dive boat and want to check how long it will take to arrive the dive spot:

New Map Features

Navigation Panel

The navigation panel is mostly useful for nautical navigation on a boat. To navigate to a dive site on land, just select a dive site flag and tap on the Google route button at the bottom. This will open the Google Maps app and calculate a route to the selected dive site:

Select dive site

Route to dive site

You can now also search in the divelogs.de database for dive sites which are not stored in your logbook. You can either search by name or around a certain area by tapping into the map. Then you can import any of the dive sites into your own logbook file. And last but not least I’ve added the Nitrox, SAC and unit calculators to the Android app:

Calculators

Android 7 offers a new split screen function and I’ve improved the compatibility of the Diving Log app for this feature. It should now work just fine in split screen mode on phones and tablets:

  • Add multiple buddies to dives and trips
  • Less restrictions without in-app purchase
  • Polish Localization
  • Several bug fixes and improvements

You can now add multiple buddies to dives and trips. If you’ve added multiple buddies using the desktop version in the past, they will now show up on your Android device:

In the past an in-app purchase was required to edit any data in the Android app. Now you can add and edit up to 10 dives and add/edit all other data (e.g. dive sites) without any limitation. The app supports now Polish localization (many thanks to Maciej) and several bugs were fixed (comments field scrolling issue, dive time picker issue).

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).

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.
