Diviac releases new iOS and Android app22nd February 2015 | Joel Perrenoud
The wait is over. With its new mobile app for iOS and Android, diviac’s users – currently from over 130 countries – can now have their logs always with them regardless of Internet availability.
When diviac launched its cloudbased scuba logbook in 2013, it had already made a significant step in reinventing the traditional paper logbook. From a dry set of statistics to a media rich and shareable journal of one’s dive history. With direct dive computer connectivity, a marine life database with 14,000 fish and full geocoding of all logs, diviac was already truly unique. With the release of its mobile app, diviac has now gone one step further by allowing divers to work fully offline and have their data automatically synchronized as soon as they are back online again. Easy, seamless, one platform and no cables.
When asked about the new app, diviac co-founder and CEO Joel Perrenoud stated: “As divers ourselves, we know how patchy Internet access can be in many of the world’s great dive destinations, not to mention total lack thereof on most liveaboards. That’s why we made sure that our app included all the great diviac features, not just a simple logbook. With our downloadable country packs, divers can have all the local dive sites, dive centers and even local fish on their phone to get the rich logging experience they are used to. The initial feedback from divers who tested the app has been tremendously positive, which makes us very proud.”
