Do you have an email associated with your Google Play account? If so that is what needs to be used. It's all tied to Google Play.

Yes. It's the same one associated with my forum account email, and the one I'm currently signed into.

I got the same message as Polar607. Is there a Google+ group we need to join first? I remember having to do that for other betas.

Not that I'm aware of but I'll check. I'm new to the Google Beta system. Confirm you're using a gmail account and/or one associated with your google play?

Google says you need to use a gmail or Google Apps account (e-mail). I don't see anything about google groups being required but it's an option for discussions like here.

I will probably simulcast the first betas to both HockeyApp and Google Play until we figure out what works best. Beta are not ready yet, one area is in final work and then the first beta can go out. Details soon.

I switched it to OPEN instead of closed beta, try now. No builds are available yet FYI

So far the Beta opens and seems to function well, I just went off after a long 15 day trip, so I will not have any entries immediately. Will this Beta be using the universal sync APDL is built around, allowing all devices to sync globally, or does this function have to be built into the upcoming Desktop version first?

We designed a great sync system for APDL and at some future point will bring it to Logbook Pro. Not sure when yet.

I vote to prioritize global sync. As a die hard Android user, I only have an iPad mini out of necessity. I hate having to wait until I get to the hotel or an open wifi to sync my APDL and Logbook Pro, since I use the iPad for logging typically, having entries split between devices is confusing and problematic. Being able to see entries on any of my devices would improve the product tremendously and reliability and timelines of my entries.

There are no plans right now for Logbook Pro and APDL to "sync" data both ways. Logbook Pro Desktop will have a feature to import APDL data often termed "sync" but it's one way. APDL's data is very different from Logbook Pro's.

I mean just have the data I enter on my logbook mobile sync with my other logbook mobile apps on other devices. Like APDL does across devices.

I have been using the system fairly successfully, however I have had it crash twice.

Can you tell me where it crashed? Steps to reproduce? Please go to the Contact Us area and submit a bug report which will send me the logs.

Thank you.
