The digital dive log for macOS and iOS

Startup Problems
Are you seeing a crash on startup?
If you are seeing a crash on startup, please re-download the latest version (released earlier today) from this link or from the front page.

Your license and data are fine, just grab the latest version and everything will be back to normal.

So, what's the story? Unfortunately a certificate used to verify that the application is valid expired. This means that macOS will refuse to launch the app. We were unaware of this until it happened. This same thing happened to a number of other developers and applications, and as such, Apple have increased the validity of the certificates for a much longer period of time. The latest version of MacDive is signed with a new one and will not expire for the better part of two decades.

It is unfortunate, but thankfully the problem is easily fixed and no data is lost, which is the most important thing.

We apologise for the inconvenience.

To better news, a new version of MacDive for iPhone, v1.2.0, was also released which contains Bluetooth download support for the Suunto EON Steel, plus numerous small bug fixes. Give it a try and let us know how you get on.

Bug fixes and the usual..
MacDive for macOS 2.8.2 has just been released.
This contains a number of internal improvements and bug fixes. One of which is for incorrect pressure readings from the Perdix AI. Traditionally we asked users to re-download dives in the case that data wasn't quite right. However we're slowly updating MacDive to be able to fix these things in place so that you don't lose your notes, buddies, critters, all that cool stuff. So if you have dives made with a Perdix AI you should be able to right-click on them and choose "Refresh Selected Dives". If you have any issues with pressure on dives you've previously downloaded, give this a try and let us know how you get on. Any new dives should be fine!

There's no new iOS release today. However, there's a new beta in TestFlight with support for downloading from the EON Steel via Bluetooth. Get in touch if you'd like to help test that out, otherwise it should be available relatively soon.

If you have any problems autoupdating the current version of MacDive then please try downloading directly from the website.

The full release notes are available here for macOS. As usual, let us know if you have any problems, suggestions or comments!

First update of the new year
I've just released some small maintenance updates.
MacDive 2.8.1 for macOS and 1.1.7 for iOS are now available. These primarily fix some bugs I found while I was away diving, a few things that had been reported over the holiday, and a couple of small new features that had been requested.

Please note that both the store and the website will be down for (hopefully very!) brief periods of maintenance by their respective providers at some point over the next week or two.

More to come!

One last update for the year..
The year is rapidly coming to a close. Soon I will be away diving in exotic places, and getting to use my own apps!
But before then, we have a couple of updates with some cool features to get out to you.

First up is support for the Shearwater Perdix AI. This has been super popular already, so a big thank you to everyone who jumped in and helped beta test. This is available in both the iPhone and macOS versions.

Next we have a new option to sync via iCloud, rather than Dropbox. While the sync works pretty much the same way whichever option you choose, iCloud has the advantage of requiring no separate login and also of Push Notifications. What this means is your data will sync and update automatically across your devices that are running MacDive. Obviously this is available on both iPhone and macOS also! Seriously, it is. Otherwise.. it wouldn't sync. Right?

Then we have a little love for the iPhone version. We have added an initial Statistics display. When you view any set of dives (All Dives, a tag, dives for a site or a piece of gear, etc) you will see some brief statistics at the top of the list. Tapping that will take you to detailed statistics and graphs much like the macOS version. You can even filter your dives and view the statistics for just those that match.

There are, of course, a number of other minor improvements and bug fixes. One of our favourite is that MacDive on macOS will now track the last few devices you've downloaded. If you check the Quick Action menu on the Toolbar, you'll see a list of Recent Devices and you can select one to download. We know a lot of users have multiple computers, and this should hopefully make it quicker and easier when you download from them all regularly.

Note that iCloud for macOS requires OS X 10.11 or later. Both versions of MacDive (2.8.0 for macOS and 1.1.5 for iPhone) are available now.

  Something that was missing..

A little maintenance
Most of this update was driven by my dive buddy harassing me for features that he needed immediately!
For example, the ability to import all the sites and critters I had logged, along with photos, automatically. So, you can now import/export Sites and Critters, and the Auto Add feature has been rewritten. It has a more modern UI, it's faster, and it can now auto-tag critters that it finds in your image EXIF data.

Along with that there is a number of bug fixes and little improvements here and there.

The full release notes are available here . As usual, let me know of any problems.
