Don't trust ecard (& PADI)
1. I ordered my ecard and it was in my app for over 2 years and everything is fine... And then I got my deep dive and PADI sent me an email to claim my ecard... So I did. I click refresh and now I have 0 cards. Like I lost card while PADI is trying to issue me a card.
2. When I was downloading my ecard.. in all of the email body it says ecard. But in the fine print it says a 30 day temporary eCard. What?! So if I didn't see that and later relied on that ecard to be there... I am screwed (just like how I am now PADI app lost the eCard)
I think the problem is deeper than the APP. In diving we rely on our gear, our knowledge and buddy... Because our lives depend on it. So to me diving you pay the money so things can be dependable.. this just proves that PADI not only doesn't have their system together but the fact that they would give you a "trial" ecard to then make you buy it is a really misleading move. I am going to stop getting any more PADI certs and go with another non profit.
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.
