    Just like the title states. I have been talking with a Developer about getting a skydive logbook on android.

    Seems its right around the corner as he is going to send me an email with instructions on how to get a pre pre beta version so I can test it out and give my reviews.

    If anybody else skydives and thinks they want it, post up and let me know. I will see if he wants some other testers.

    Will keep everyone posted.

    Now all we need is app for spotting, like the software that comes on the Garmin GPS.

    I would like to know when this app is released! Is there a Twin Otter in the Aircraft selection?

    Yes it is...

    You can add whatever aircraft you want too.

    It is still in development, a couple of bugs that need to be fixed.

    I could give you the link to download and try it out but when the final version is released it will not be compatible and you will need to update all your jumps again.

    I haven't loaded anymore jumps in for this reason. Just waiting on final version.

    I would post a QR code.

    Use shopsavvy or some sort of barcode scanner to scan it and then hit download and it installs on your phone..

    Anymore news on the development of this app?

    I was just about to start a new thread asking if there was a skydive logbook, but thankfully found this one!

    I'm a pilot but I don't know if the the FAR's would allow for an android app to be accepted for a log book entry.

    A friend of mine showed me the iPhone version at the weekend and its fantastic. I'm sure the android version will be just as good. Can't wait!

    One request is for an easy export/import function from SD so you don't have to type all the jumps back in after an upgrade.

    Looking forward to the finished version!
