divePAL is the Swiss knife App for Scuba divers.
With divePAL you can Plan, Log and Analyze your dives.
You can use divePAL to manually log real dives or import real dive profiles from DiveNav bluebuddy wireless data logger or directly from your model-specific dive computer via our Dive Computer Buddy (aka DCbuddy) adapter.
Both bluebuddy and DCbuddy use Bluetooth 4.0 low energy technology.
With this version of divePAL you can direct download logs from the following model-specific dive computers:
Aeris A300, A300AI, A300XT, Atmos AI, Elite T3, Manta and XR2

You can use divePAL powerful Analyzer to analyze your dives and dynamically see the changing levels of nitrogen in the various compartments, visualize your gas consumption, and, in Nitrox mode, monitor the Partial Pressure of Oxygen and estimated your Oxygen toxicity level for a specific dive profile.
divePAL is also a dive computer simulator that can be customized with model-specific dive computers; with divePAL you can now see your dive computer in action before even getting wet.
divePAL runs - in real time - our implementation of the Buhlmann ZH-L16C algorithm (with adjustable conservatism) and supports the most typical dive screens such as: surface, normal diving, entering deco, decompression stop, deco violation, fast ascent alarm and post dive.

Ratings and Reviews
Crashes when trying to add Buddies
I really wanted to like this. It has so much potential. I even bought their dcBuddy. Not ready for prime time.
Whenever I attempted to add Buddies, it crashed. Bummer.
I love the concept of having my dive log on my iPad. It will happen in the future, I I am hopeful.
I want my money back .
Problematic With Minimal To No Support
This software has been in development for a long time where its capabilities remain substandard with respect to other offerings such as DiveLog. Its only possible capability that was notable was its ability to download via DCBuddy (BlueTooth LE) device logs from a dive computer. That said now DiveLog has licensed that capabilities from these people, thus there is no reason to use this substandard program.
Notable is that any many capabilities require an in-app purchase, or purchase of a license from the manufacture’s web site. For example want to use Nitrox, must buy a yearly license. Dive longer than 100 min? Must buy the tech license (not that a long dive is tech).
That said after purchasing a license from manufacture’s web site and entering it into the application the app simply crashes. Referring to the manufacture’s web site this problem was reported six months ago with no response from the manufacture. I recently reported this problem as well with no response.
I consider the purchase price of the app, as well as the yearly license fee, to have been a totally wasted expense. My recommendation is save your money and stay away. Far away.
