Diving Log for Android

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:

    You have to join the beta (first link) before you can download the app.

    Nice clean App Sven.
    I read that Dropbox is on the roadmap – is Bluetooth integration with Petrel for example?

    Thanks for all the hard work.

    Hi Graham

    Thank you, I’m glad you like the app! I don’t know if or when I could integrate a dive computer downloader. This depends on a few things and first I want to get the basic things right.

    I also joined the beta, immediately went to the Play Store link, and got the same “requested URL is not available”. But I tried a few minutes later and it worked.

    I snyc my logbook between desktop and laptop by simply keeping the .mdb file in my Dropbox, so either machine has ready access to the files without me having to do anything. Works fine, as long as I make sure to never to have the file open in both places at once.

    Since I use Dropbox on my Android tablet too, I hope that syncing becomes that easy on the Android app too, rather than one having to do a new export any time anything changes. I’m curious as to the difference between the .mdb file and the .sql file. The ideal situation would be if the Android app could just read (and write) the same .mdb file that the desktop app uses.

    Something happened that I can’t figure out – maybe someone can. I can see the Diving Log folder on my device, but when I connect it to my desktop computer, I can’t see it there. After much searching to no avail, I just copied the .sql file to the Downloads folder on the device, then from the device moved it to the Diving Log folder. But why couldn’t I see that folder when connected to the desktop?

    Thanks for coming up with this! I look forward to further improvements, though I’ll probably still mostly use a Windows machine for log stuff.

    Hi Dave

    The *.mdb file is an Access database, which can be used only on Windows desktop. The *.sql file is a SQLite database file, which can be used also on mobile devices. So converting the logbook file is necessary for mobile usage. But the cloud sync dialogs in Diving Log in the “Web” toolbar menu take care of this. Converting back and forth is just one click.

    I’m not sure why the Diving Log folder does not show up when connecting the phone. Please contact me via email for support issues.

    Kind regards,

    Awesome job, I really like the look & feel of your new Android app as it is similar to the desktop and windows phone app.

    Straight forward, not cluttered – very well done. Thanks 🙂
