What's New in Version 1.4.1
- added a news section
Perhaps I was expecting too much, Iam not sure but this app seems dated. I had thought the hand signals would be more of a flash card aide that would test you but instead it's just the signals that you could peruse in the book. Also, the support feature doesn't really help if you can't remember your login credentials because no matter what you type in it just says Success an email has been sent to you. Very annoying. The tables look like they have simply been scanned for a reference. There are some good things such as the checklist reminders and whatnot but other than that... I find that I would rather refer to books and such than the app. Now that doesn't mean there aren't other goodies, it's got the dive centers and whatnot available but the app overall seems to be a little outdated and not at all what I expected from such a main agency.
Needs some work
Overall it's nice that SSI has an app and it has some good features like dive checks, tables and hand signals but needs some work. The app hasn't been updated since 2012 and with more users using mobile devices, that's simple unacceptable.
A number of changes that would make this app really useful and a go to for all divers:
-Update for iPhone 5 screen size
-Syncable dive logbook with SSI website
-Ability for C-Cards to be stored in Passbook
-Online training to be done within the app, or if not, a link to the mySSI website
-An updated and more aesthetically pleasing user interface.
-Ability to share reviews or photos of different SSI Dive Centers
-Fix for the support section keyboard. When entering a comment on iPhone 5 keyboard blocks the text box so you can't see what you're writing
Good app, great support
This app has lots of useful information and is very handy for being able to view your certification cards. I was having trouble getting mine to show up, but I used the support function inside the app, and they got back to me and solved the problem in about 8 hours.
