Dive Log is designed to work either as your primary SCUBA diving logbook application or in conjunction with compatible 3rd party desktop logbook applications. You can use Dive Log at the dive site or on the dive boat to capture the information about the site while it is fresh in your mind (or your dive guide's mind). You can even capture the GPS coordinates of the dive site using the built in location services of your iOS device. Details about your actual dive can be added immediately after your dive or at the après dive event and later be saved to your desktop computer. The dive buddy feature is fully integrated with Contacts on your iPhone or iPad, letting you capture information about your newest dive buddy or quickly add an existing buddy to a particular dive. The dive data and statistics features let you have an immediate answer the next time your dive guide asks how much weight you used on your last dive or have all the information you need about your dive history when you fill out that next dive waiver. Metric and Imperial values are supported for all appropriate logbook fields. You can easily enter values using the appropriate units for the situation and view them in your preferred measurement system. You can even explore detailed dive profiles from popular dive computers that you download with your desktop software and later upload to Dive Log on iPhone/iPad. Dive profile data can also be transferred directly from certain dive computers directly via Bluetooth or using a supported Bluetooth accessory and an associated in-app purchase.
On Windows, Diving Log 6.0 (www.divinglog.de) is fully integrated with Dive Log on iPhone/iPad and has built in synchronization. Diving Log 6.0 has extensive support for importing data from dive computers and other dive log applications.
On Mac OS X, logbook information can be imported to Dive Log on iPhone/iPad from a number of compatible applications using the free Dive Log Manager application available from More Mobile Software (www.moremobilesoftware.com/divelog-sync). Dive Log DT (available on the Mac App Store) can be used to directly import a number of dive computers and file formats and can synchronize with Dive Log on iOS. In addition, MacDive has built in synchronization with Dive Log and supports a wide range of dive computers.

Ratings and Reviews
Exactly what I was looking for!
After trying out several applications on both iOS and PC, this is the one I use (along with Diving Log 6.0 on a Windows PC to capture my dive computer data). I love that I can start the log on my phone at the dive site in order to capture things like GPS location, info I want to remember, and a signature from a dive master or buddy, without having to manually enter any of the data that my computer automatically logs. Then, once I'm home, I download my computer to add the dive profile, temperatures, air consumption, etc. and merge the two sets of info together.
The statistics are really fun. Want to know how many times you've dove at your favorite spot or with a certain buddy? How many hours you spent underwater last October? Your deepest / longest / coldest dive? How many dives one of your exposure suits survived? The statistics feature can not only answer these questions, but will also link to each of the associated dives.
You can also use this app to keep track of all of your equipment, including pictures, serial numbers, warranty info, service schedules (with optional reminders), and it can track dive counts for each piece. It also stores certification info including images of C-cards.
Love this app!
Best Dive App
This is the best dive app out there. It does everything you need. I can download information directly from my dive computer and then easily add all the information I need. The only issue I have had is with pictures. The app allows to to take pictures within the app or add a picture from your computer or phone of dive equipment and dive sights. Some pictures added from my phone will not crop properly. Pictures taken from within the app can’t then be shared. This is a very minor issue. It would be nice if basic information about a dive could be shared among dive buddies. Don’t waste you time or money getting a different app. This is the one you have been looking for.
So many opportunities ...
... so much time spent on promoting a $100 bluetooth ad-on for reading dive computers.
Admittedly, being able to copy the entire dive, profile and all, would be nice, but they *could* make the app so much more useful as an actual logbook if they wanted.
It allows for a fairly comprehensive set of information with which to annotate your dives, but it's nothing that a spreadsheet couldn't do. You can enter groups, surface interval, etc, but the app really has enough information to fill in those blanks.
Changing the spelling of a dive site, and all information about it (GPS coordinates, most notably) are gone.
I have all my dives in here, so will keep using it 'til I find something better, but if you're looking for an electronic dive log to start with, "this is not the dive log you're looking for."
