The digital dive log for macOS and iOS

Time to decompress..
I've just released two new versions of MacDive - 2.10.4 for macOS, and 1.3.4 for iOS.
Both have been updated to download and visualise decompression information via supported devices - in particular from your Shearwater or OSTC, which have been highly requested.

Both work as existing overlays do in that you can toggle the information on/off. The Profile Inspector (or scrubbing your finger on iOS) will show detailed information about your stop times and depths.

MacDive for iOS also receives two new utility functions. The first is batch renumbering of dives. Find this under the Settings menu of any list of dives and renumber away. You'll also find a new option there to export the list to UDDF - you can send this to iCloud or via email.

And on that note, the UDDF functionality in MacDive has been overhauled. Both import and export for macOS have been rewritten, so has import on iOS - and the export is new, of course. These are now far more consistent and read (and write) much more information.

There is support for some new devices and a few other bits and pieces as well.

As usual, check out the full release notes.

Going dark.
Not me - MacDive! This update has been a while brewing, and I'm glad to finally get it out. Primarily it is compatible with macOS Mojave, which will be available shortly.
I'm a big fan of the new dark mode. The update also contains TouchBar support for your MacBook Pro, a bunch of new device support, and many other bug fixes and improvements.

Along with this release, MacDive v1.3.1 for iOS was released yesterday. Both releases contain support for the Shearwater Teric - thanks to those of you who have been testing this for a while.

For the full list of changes, please see the release notes.

As usual, let me know of any problems!

MacDive. For iPad!
After a very long wait, I'm happy to announce that the latest update of MacDive for iOS has support for the iPad.
We've tried to create a more iPad friendly layout while retaining the same look and feel of the iPhone app. Obviously a lot has changed in the app to let things work for both iPhone and iPad where possible, so please let us know of any issues.

The Dashboard is the major new addition to the iPad. A place to show off your stats, see your recently logged dives for quick access, etc. We're interested to hear feedback on this so we can add to it in future updates. Please let us know what you'd like to see here!

As well as the obvious big change, there are the usual bug fixes and improvements. There have been a number of UI tweaks of the iPhone version - everything from fixing lines that were a pixel too large to rewriting bits and pieces from scratch to make them work better.

We've also included support for the Mares Bluelink to let you download dives via Bluetooth from supported Mares devices.

As with any version of MacDive, we don't really think of it as "finished". Merely a place to start. So, back to it..

Easter Holiday Update
A new release for macOS today to push out some new device support and other improvements.
This release contains support for the Scubapro Aladin Sport Matrix, via Bluetooth. This means I've also added Bluetooth support for the Scubapro G2, to complement the existing USB support. A couple of you have asked for this so I hope this makes things more convenient. Support for the Matrix will also be coming to iOS shortly, once the latest update has been approved.

This release also adds support for the Garmin Descent Mk1 via FIT file. Drag and drop away! As the Descent has GPS, I've also incorporated a couple of the location-based features from iOS in to macOS. Namely, when you download, the GPS coordinates will be grabbed from the dive. When using a menu to select a site (either from the dives table or the location tab of the dive inspector), you may see an extra entry at the top if an exising site at the dives location was found. Also, the quick-create-site menu in the dive inspector now has GPS fields and they will be pre-populated for you with the location.

Not too many exciting features, but I've done a lot of internal work just tidying things up, a few performance improvements and bug fixes, etc. Please let me know if you run in to any issues!

Another update?!
Just a couple of really quick updates to add a feature people have been asking for, and tidy up some very old code.
A number of people have been asking for gear group images to be synced and viewable/editable on macOS. I finally sat down to tick that off the list, and at the same time, decided to give the various thumbnail views a lick of paint. A few people have mentioned over the years that the various thumbnail views (Gear, Critters, etc) could be difficult to read.

This new update gives them an updated design which is far more readable. At the same time the internals have been tidied up significantly. For one thing, this resolves a couple of "bugs" that have existed since around 2.0.0, in that editing the various details wouldn't trigger the thumbnails to update properly. This should all be fixed - everything should now look, work and feel nicer. As an extra, you can now right-click on any thumbnail to view the associated dives.

This update contains a couple of other minor bug fixes, but is mostly just about updating those thumbnail views. I wanted to get it released sooner rather than later, so give it a try and let me know what you think.

There's also a new release for iOS. This essentially exists just to fix a bug syncing the gear group images that I found while updating the macOS version. It includes a "Random Dive" button hidden under Stats, which I find myself using all the time just to remember some old dive somewhere or other..
