Could be better, but it's better than what I had
I have the ability to write applications, and I have been keeping my logbook in a database-backed web application of my own creation, but I don't have the time to make it what I'd like it to be. I decided it was worth $100 to save me hours of working on something that may not ever pay off.
There are still significant fixes to be made to this application. I actually got a refund after my initial purchase because it just wasn't working, and I needed my logbook printed for an interview. I stuck with my web application, which got the job done. But after working with this application a bit more and trying out the iOS version, I decided it's worth the money, and have paid for it again. The report printing capability is what really got me hooked. I have managed to create a CSV exporter and customized one of the logbook report templates to fit what I need, and there is probably even more that I could do. That said, I don't entirely trust this application - I still see glitches here and there, and the company's history is a little troublesome when it comes to their upgrade pricing. For that reason, I will continue to do regular exports to CSV and archive those files in case I need to fire up my own application again.
The things that could be more ...
And are content to be less.
This logbook works pretty well and as a flight instructor, I use this app on my Mac and on my iPad pretty much every day. I know it very well and quite simply, the quirks, bugs, and missing features are maddening.
First, there should be a way for an instructor to enter details for a flight ONCE, then share that version with their student and sign that entry. Instead, I have to enter a flight TWICE: Once on my iPad, once on my student’s iPad. This feature has been "on request” for years and has yet to be implemented.
For students that have gone "all electronic" and need an endorsement for a practical test, I can enter a “certificate” for them and sign it, but it’s not really a certificate it is? It’s an ENDORSEMENT. Oh, and you can’t read the remarks text of the endorsement unless you remove the signature.
I dutifully record block-out and block-in times, but the automatic calculation of night time is sporadic at best.
Lastly, their web site says if you have a feature request, just ask and the answer is “yes.” Actually, it’s seldom “yes.” The response I consistently get is “The development team will review this, but no guarantees …”
All this wouldn’t be so frustrating if the app wasn’t sooooo close to being the ideal logbook app and if the pricing structure was not at such a premium. A premium price should result in a premium product.
Needs work ...
Professional app for professional pilots
As a professional pilot I have no problems paying for a professional app I use everyday. After reading some of the lower ratings, it doesn’t seem fair to rate a great app low just because you have to pay for it. The first computer game I ever bought was Sim City, I have since bought it multiple times over and over (inlcuding on my iOS devices). I’d don’t get all the complaints about not getting free updates for life. Just like I don’t expect to get free updates for Sim City for every new iOS/OS, I am not expecting Mac developers to give me continous free updates. I need a logging app that is updated and works. LogTen Pro is that application suite, I’ll gladly pay a small fee to continue to receive updates.
