That would be great.
Download the Forums for Android™ app!
Yes it would
Surprised there isnt one already. what functionality is there needed for a Pilot logbook exactly?
Theres a few examples out there already:
Flogger for the iphone:
YouTube - Flogger, a flight logger for iPhone and iPod touch
And NC Software Inc makes ones for Windows Mobile/ Palm OS:
Logbook Pro PDA Companion
So anyone working on this then?
No idea....desperately waiting.
That's an app I'll actually pay for!!
We should all get together and pay some developer to write it for us, then keep the rights and make money off of it!
If you guys put together the specs for what it should do, and more than 20 people would use it, I'd write it for you.
I don't think we would have any problem finding 20 people to use it...
I'd be happy to write something like this, but as a private pilot, I don't really have a good feel for what you pros need. If y'all can provide a detailed list of specs (post them here if you like), I'll see what I can do.
I'd pay for it! columns could be just like the paper one, total time, multi single engine, PIC, SIC, night, xc, dual, complex, high perf etc... and a place to put aircraft tail numbers and dates flown and places flown to and from.
There could even be just blank categories we could fill in! Maybe even syncable to pc for a back up, OOOh the possibilities.
Is there a way to update an excel file actually on the Eris and use that as a log??
Seriously, I can't figure out why Android is the only major platform that doesn't have a pilot logbook. I'd be willing to pay up to $120 if it were able to upload the data to my Mac. Make me wish I had paid more attention in my college computer programming classes. I would be making more money selling this app than I make flying in the airlines.
Roger that man! I wouldn't pay that much myself though. $10 is the highest id go. Hell i'll develope it if someone points me in the right direction of a program to create Mobil apps for HTC.
If someone would send me the specs or a word document/pdf of the required information I'd be glad to take a shot at this.
OMG just did a ton of searches... no accurate zulu clock, no log book and no E6B/flight computer.
Starting to seriously regret buying this phone.
I'll see if I can scan some blank pages next time I'm in the office.
Or what program id used tp write/make these apps?
I'm not really familiar with what any of this stuff 'should' look like. So basically just a list of what needs to be on it and a general overview of how it should be organized.
I wouldn't mind taking a crack at this one, too. I'm a long-time java developer/enterprise architect and the android api are something i am new to (i've deployed my own apps locally...nothing for sale). I'd love to give this a shot (along with sn00zer) (not meant to be competitive - but more collaborative). I'm finding the hardest thing is getting good ideas - building them is the easy(ier) part....
I would say think of it as an excel spread sheet we can put hours in. Then across the top you have your labels for the columns.
Down the side would be the aircraft, so something like these:
just as examples, possibly even syncable would be great so we can back stuff up.
I agree. Right now it is the only reason I have not got the Droid. If someone could develop this and make it more than just a speadsheet, I'd go out and get a new phone the day it's ready. It should have the ability to not only log flights but keep track of flight time every 7 days, 30 days, and yearly to ensure compliance with FARs.
I'm currently working on this. I'm working from a log book that had the following columns.
I'm adding the ability to add pilots (up to 4) and to add text comments to a particular flight log entry. If anyone has anything additional please let me know. Screenshots/Scans of actual logbooks that you use would be great. Feel free to shoot me an email ( jason.warford ) at logixtechnology *dot* (com)
Any updates to seeing a logbook program soon on DROID?
I'm hoping to release one by the first part of next week.
