Stuck in the early 00s
So much potential to complement a great dive experience with a solid digital experience and accompanying app. A dive log should be simple and how great would it be to have dive instructors be able to digitally “sign” a log book these days, letting dive computer data live along side certification Info. Alas, this app is slow, unreliable, requires signing on to a secondary (!?) “ScubaEarth” account and does not function at all without an internet connection- making it useless when in many dive spots. Even with a great internet connection it cannot find known dive shops without going through a full browser interface instead of the clunky app (which, itself, is a poorly rendered version of the web experience vs a well designed and dedicated tool). With the iPhone celebrating 10 years, its past due to say PADI has had time to get this right. Zero focus here.
Works but doesn’t do anything.
This app seems so necessary yet it’s completely useless. Can you look up your diving cert? No, you have to go in and buy an “e-card” at which point you can, but the app itself can’t do the lookup. You gotta go in. So it isn’t the functional dive certification wallet you want, though maybe it could be if you Put Another Dollar In. Meanwhile, the dive logging feature is useless - harder than paper, no support for automatic anything nor for looking anything up nor for digital instructor signatures... it just doesn’t do anything. Why not just keep em in Notes? The only useful features are the ones you’ll not use because it’s easier to do with google: the locator and course list. Great. Thanks a heap.
There are many apps that one can download and many that can be purchased but this one is one that should be setting the standard for all. PADI should be ashamed at this app and it’s poor performance and design. If the first word in your business is professional then that should apply to all aspects of your business. This is far from a professional company’s app. As an organization you need to get your stuff together and make this the premier app for divers. What kind of impression do you think you create for new divers or those we are trying to introduce to the magical world of diving? As much as people know and respect PADI they also expect the app that bares the name to be a world class easy to use (anywhere, anytime) with or without internet access.
