This is altimeter simulator can be used to help a SkyDiving student to practice altitude awareness. That is to practice looking at your altimeter regularly during the dive and being aware of your altitude.
* Metric and Feet support - custom altimeter face for each
* Jump height can be configured (e.g. 14,000 feet, or 4000m)
* Three simulated audible alert sounds can be configured. For example for:
- 1st: Breakoff, e.g. 5000 feet (or in meters)
- 2nd: Pull, e.g. 4000 feet (or in meters)
- 3rd: Warning, e.g. 1500 feet (or in meters)
- 4th: Canopy Descent
* Fall Rate (Belly Flying, or FreeFly/HeadDown)
* Easier adjustment of heights/speeds via sliders
* Log jumps with jump #, date, DZ, aircraft, gear, jump type (bellw/rw, freefly, etc), exit/deployment altitudes (feet or meters), delay, cutaway, notes, and a diagram!
* Have licensed skydivers sign entries in your logbook using the touchscreen
* View stats including total jump count, total freefall time, cutaways, etc
* Manage your gear including components/serial #'s, and service reminders (i.e. repack due next week)!
* Manage your DZ's, set one as your home DZ
* Manage your aircraft, with 15 or so built in aircraft
* Calculate wing loading, desired canopy size, and extra weight needed to target a desired wing loading
* Import/export for backing up, transferring, and printing your logbook
* Logbook history section for entering previous freefall time and number of cutaways.
This application is free and always will be. Please feel free to send suggestions!
This is the "Lite" version of the official app based on Mike Truffer's popular book, "The Book of Skydiving Formations", which has helped skydivers plan dives for many years.
Once a dive size is selected (2-way, 4-way, 20-way, etc.), formations can be browsed and added to form a sequence of "points", which becomes the planned skydive. The completed dive can then be reviewed while it is practiced on the ground ("dirt-dived").

Dive buddy is my attempt at creating a mobile app for skydivers that is both easy to use and highly functional. What started out as an annoyance of having to search the web for weather data has now turned into a full fledged app. Though the app is in production it is a beta version. This means there may be bugs and compatibility issues. While the app is designed to work with support down to Android's Ice Cream Sandwich operating system (android 4.0.x), some features may crash.
Yes there are ads. But there will be a version without ads soon for $0.99 (Being honest, I'll probably use any money on jumps because seriously... I haven't had a jump in months and I'm itching to get current and go up again).
Dive buddy features an easy-to-use navigation design and boasts 4 main parts as of now.
The Load timer is exactly that and can be used to quickly set a timer depending on the time until the next load is scheduled to go up.
Next is the weather feature which utilizes aviation weather data in conjunction with other data sources (wunderground) to present you with as much detail as possible.
The logbook is also like it sounds and you can easily export logs generated by the app to your SD card for import into Paralog. Dive buddy does not currently support importing yet, but it is planned for future updates to allow importing logs from paralog or from Skydiving Logbook (which is also a pretty awesome app available for iOS users as well). The logbook supports metric and imperial units.
Finally, there is an analog/digital freefall simulator that allows you to simulate an altimeter during a skydive. This can be used for training and even incorporates the time it takes to accelerate, making it extremely accurate.
NOTE: The logbook may be buggy so do NOT rely solely on it for record keeping. I am not responsible for lost information.
Currently the only language this app is available in is English and only U.S. USPA dropzones are listed for autocomplete.
Have fun and blue skies!
If you are a recreational scuba diver, this is the perfect App to refresh your skills before the dive season resumes, or in-between dive trips.
Thanks to our virtual depth sensor you can interact with your Smartphone with simple hand movements and make it descend or ascend in the water column and so create your own dive profile.
Tap the compartments icon and see the nitrogen intake and release of your body.
And at the end of the dive, tap on the log icon to see a summary of your dive.
The iDive Computer App comes with a non branded dive computer, but you can customize it by purchasing, via inApp, simulations for model-specific dive computers of major brands such as Aeris, Cressi, Hollis, Mares, Oceanic, ScubaPro, Shearwater, Sherwood, SubGear, Suunto and Tusa.
The iDive Computer App runs - in real time - our implementation of the Buhlmann ZH-L16C algorithm (moderate conservatism setting) and supports the most typical dive screens such as: surface, normal diving, entering deco, decompression stop, deco violation, fast ascent alarm and post dive.
If you are a dive professional this is the perfect App to show a model-specific dive computer in action to your customers and/or students.

+ Powerful logbook.
+ Automatic music silence: if you listen to music on the way up Altidroid will silence it as as soon as you exit the plane.
WARNING: This program comes with no guarantees. It's not been tested in all conditions and may fail at any moment. Never rely on it. Skydiving is a dangerious activity that may lead to injuries or death.
If the app crashes immediately on start, try to Stop GooglePlayServices in the Application Manager and restart your device.
Otherwise feel free to drop me an email.
Powerful, easy to use app especially for (powered) paragliders which can even be operated while wearing gloves (see below for details).
Paraglider Dashboard calculates wind speed and wind direction while in the air.
Display of wind triangle, tachometer, map with airspaces, variometer and more.
All important flight data is constantly shown in the info boxes.
Slide through the following Views:
* Map with airspaces and track
* Speed vectors (basis of wind calculation)
* Overview with all views
* Infoboxes with all important flight data
* GPS based Variometer (optional)
* Show past flights in a logbook
* Calculate wind triangle for different wind situations
* Set destination in map by simple long touch or select from a waypoint list
* Display of arrival time at destination taking current wind into account.
* Load airspaces in OpenAir format
* Save track as (unsigned) IGC-file
* Build-in help pages
* Simulation mode to replay IGC-files
* Metric and imperial units
* Altitude display in meter, feet or both alternating
With glove control switched on, you can control the app without using the touch screen (e.g. while wearing gloves).
A menu which is controlled by the proximity sensor allows this trick.
Just hovering the hand over the device lets the menu pop up and scroll through the available functions.
When releasing the hand again, the currently highlighted function is executed.
Why are the permissions needed:
* GPS Location: Now, that's obviously needed.
* Prevent from sleeping: Device should not switch off in midair.
* Internet access: Needed exclusively for Google Maps.
* USB storage: For saving IGC-files when closing app.
About the author:
I am flying a powered paraglider and developed this app tailored to my own needs. Feel free to contact me, if you have ideas for improvements or enhancements.
Note: This app drains battery because its purpose is to read GPS all the time. Our experience shows that recent smart phones are able to record 10-13 hours of flight before the battery reaches 20% and the app stops recording (percentage is selectable in the Settings). Tablets have much larger batteries and are for this reason very suitable for running the SeeYou Recorder.
SeeYou for PC version 4.3 added the SeeYou Cloud panel where you can view, download to PC or delete files from the SeeYou Cloud! You can try it for free from www.naviter.com
Comments and reviews here on Google Play are really nice. However please note that if you need to complain about anything you should write to email@example.com also. None of the contact information is shared with us when you post a comment which makes it impossible to fix problems unless you contact us directly. Thank you.
