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.
Dive Computer Buddy (aka DCbuddy) is a Bluetooth LE accessory by DiveNav Inc. and available for purchase separately (www.divenav.com/products/dcbuddy). The DCbuddy allows you transfer dive data from certain dive computers (including models from Suunto, Oceanic, Aeris, Sherwood and Mares) directly to Dive Log on your Bluetooth LE (Bluetooth 4.0) compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Complete, flexible, thorough Dive Log
Synchronizing with DivelogDT on my Mac, versatile and —knock wood— bug free so far. I’ve only transcribed a fraction of my dives (need them validated), but I find this the best of 4 so far... no reason to swap out now. Customer service/support has been Johnny on-the-spot too.
Best Electronic Log
I have used this app to log hundreds of dives over the past several years. It syncs easily to my desktop and makes all the important info easily available.
