Great Diving App
What a great app to have with you while preparing for a dive or helping with a dive incident. The list of hyperbaric chambers nearest your current location is enough to make this a worthwhile app. Add to that a step-by-step incident report data collection guide and you have a must have app.
The only downside I have discovered is when searching for a nearby chamber, I need to kill and relaunch the app if I am refreshing the search. If I don't kill the app I am shown locations in the United Kingdom. Sort of far away for us Southern California divers.
Good start on a great app
Thep app has a lot of useful information and modules, however it needs a little help when using imperial (ft/psi) over metric measurements. The spin wheels are cumbersome to add large numbers and they do not go high enough for imperial units, keyboard entry would be quicker and any siZe unit could be added. How about a way to add/ submit additional chambers. A few simple changes and the app would be worth a couple $$$ and more stars, as it is now it is best used by divers using metric units only,
Ok for Metric
This is a pretty cool app and I love the dive log feature. However it has options for imperial or metric (lbs, feet, psi / kg, meters or bar) but you are limited by the values for metric. Example: the maximum beginning tank pressure that you can select for psi is 300. And the maximum depth you can select for a dive in feet is 50 feet.
Also some of the chamber location links don't work in Google maps. But overall, this is a strong foundation that could become a must have on the boat for every dive! Keep up the good work!!
