Dive Log 1.3 Approved for Sale - What's New?

Post by support » Wed May 12, 2010 7:17 pm

Dive Log 1.3 is now available in the App Store. Dive Log continues to run on all version of iPhoneOS, but some of the new features in this version will only be available to you if you are running iPhoneOS 3.0 or greater. We recommend running the latest version of iPhoneOS to get the most out of Dive Log.

Here is a brief overview of what is new in this version:

Expanded Equipment Management

• You can now set additional information about your dive Equipment including purchase details, serial number, warranty information and upcoming service dates. There is a new setting in the settings tab to control how far in advance Dive Log will notify you about upcoming Equipment service dates. The default for this setting is "never", but you can set a different period (for example "1 week before") to turn on notifications. Notifications are indicated by the application badge. The application badge will be updated even when the application is not running if your device is running iPhoneOS 3.0 or greater.

View Dive Site Maps within Dive Log and get directions via external applications

• Dive Log now shows Dive Site locations on a Map within the application if you are running iPhoneOS 3.0 or greater. This new embedded map also has a new control to measure the approximate distance from your current location to the selected dive site. You also now have the option of getting directions to the site from the Maps application or a 3rd party navigation application if you have a supported one installed (currently the various versions of NAVIGON MobileNavigator such as MobileNavigator North America are the only supported 3rd party applications).

Landscape mode is now supported throughout Dive Log

• You can now rotate your iPhone and get a landscape view of each screen. This is particularly useful in the photo viewer, the profile viewer and the new map view. You may also find it useful when typing in comments to take advantage of the more spacious landscape keyboard. Full landscape mode support is only available when running iPhoneOS 3.0 or later.
