Synchronization & Backup


Purchase Dive Log in the iTunes App Store!
You can use WiFi synchronization between your iOS device and your Desktop device even if there is no WiFi around! (Like, on a boat, in the middle of the ocean!). Setup an “Ad-Hoc Network”.

iCloud synchronization requires an internet connection. When your device has an internet connection any updates that you have published via the iCloud Synchronization feature will be saved on Apple’s iCloud servers!

Dive Log

Synchronize your scuba logbook to MacOS or to iCloud
Dive Log is designed to work either as your primary logbook application or as a mobile adjunct to compatible desktop diving logbook applications.

Your diving logbook is an important record of your diving history and must be protected against accidental loss. Dive Log’s data is backed up as a normal part of your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch synchronization with iTunes or iCloud backup. Your logbook data will be restored in the event of a recovery of your iOS device through iTunes or iCloud.

The default backup mechanism in iOS is not very flexible and requires a complete restore of your device. To more flexibly protect your logbook data you should also consider directly backing up your logbook to a desktop computer or to load storage. We provide a synchronization features within Dive Log that allows you to backup your logbook or synchronize it with compatible applications via a Wi-Fi connection to your computer. We encourage you to maintain a backup of your logbook using this feature so that you have complete control of your important logbook information. There are free/unpaid versions of the desktop applications available (both Windows and MacOS) for this purpose.

You can also use Dive Log’s iCloud synchronization feature to maintain backups of your logbook in iCloud (independent of iOS’s iCloud Backup support). You can also use this feature to synchronize your logbook between multiple iOS devices that are signed into iCloud with the same AppleID.

iCloud Syncing

Sync your scuba logbook using iCloud

Dive Log supports iCloud synchronization and backup between all of your iOS devices.

When you are ready to upload, simply navigate to the iCloud Synchronization tab. If you have never uploaded this particular logbook, then select the item below “Upload Active Logbook to iCloud”. Dive Log does not require a network connection to interact with iCloud. Your data will be uploaded to iCloud when an appropriate internet connection is available. Of course, other devices will not have access to your new uploaded logbook until it has migrated to the iCloud servers.

Once a copy of your logbook is in the cloud, you can synchronize it in the future by selecting the appropriate item underneath “Matching Logbooks Available for Synchronization”. Dive Log takes care of resolving any conflicts that occur as the result of delays in exchanging data between your device and the iCloud servers.
Sync your scuba logbook to all your iOS devices
If you have other iOS devices, then you can again navigate to the “iCloud Synchronization” tab on that device.

If you have never loaded this particular logbook on this device, or want to overwrite the existing active logbook, select an item underneath “Logbooks to Import/Restore”.

If you have made changes to the active logbook on this device and want to upload them to the cloud so they can been seen on other devices, select an item underneath “Matching Logbooks Available for Synchronization”.
