MacDive
The digital dive log for macOS and iOS


May updates
Joining dives on iOS, bottom time, and plenty of little fixes.
MacDive for macOS (2.10.13) and iOS (1.3.12) have both just been released. One of the longer requested features has been to bring the ability to join dives together on iOS, so I'm glad to say this is finally available. Visit Settings from any list of dives and you'll have the option to select dives to join.

One of the bigger changes in these releases are the addition of a new Bottom Time field. For macOS you can enable this in the main dives table. This field, which is calculated automatically, is now used over total duration for all SAC/RMV calculations. The intention is that for dives with surface periods (eg in a cave, or during training) will now show a more accurate SAC/RMV. So, if your rates change slightly, that's why!

There are a number of other minor tweaks and bug fixes as usual. See the release notes for the full list.

Updated Dive Inspector
Revamped inspector, support for the Suunto D5 and other bits and pieces.
I finally had enough of the very old dive inspector, and decided to revamp it. That's the main improvement in this update - a brand new inspector. It has a lot more room to display content, making for much less cramped tabs with things jammed everywhere. It is resizable. The site and map are now merged. The critters view now shows you the combined critters tagged via photos or directly on a dive. There's a ton of little improvements around the place so I could go on - but really, just download it and have a play.

If you run in to any problems then please let me know. This is a fairly big update, there's bound to be a few little kinks to smooth out.

There's also support for the new Suunto D5, and I've added Bluetooth support for the Mares Bluelink. Don't forget the usual assortment of random bug fixes, and hopefully that's a decent update.

There's a new iOS version out too (1.3.10), available on the App Store now. This has improved Mares Bluelink support (faster and more reliable) along with support for the Suunto D5.

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

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..
