• Apple released it's annual update - iOS 17 for both iPhones and iPads. After preliminary testing we see no issues with both Logbook Pro and APDL on iOS 17. We will continue our thorough testing with the public release and follow up should we find any issues.

    We are giving a green light on iOS 17 for all of our iOS apps.

Just a few ideas..

Hi Neal,

There are a lot of posts in this area, so at the risk of repeating here are some of the items I would like to see in future updates:

1: Automatic calculation of night hours. This should be straight forward enough based on Lat/ Long. This could then be used to automatically log day/night landing based on pilot function.

2:An option to automatically work out IFR time, based on say Block Time minus say 10 mins, or the actual airborne / landing times. I don't think it's possible to do it by customising existing columns?

3: Hours / minutes I know you've heard about!

4: Some of us get paid a 'sector allowance', dependant on the destination we fly to / from. For example, £20 for flights within UK, £30 for flights to mainland Europe, £40 to east coast USA etc. Just wondering if there is a quick way to log this in LPro/APDL, or is it a leg by leg thing? Would it be possible to reference it to Dept / Dest fields? Or perhaps insert say letter 'A' for £20, letter 'B' for £30, etc in a customised column? Could this be done through a a per diem type entry in APDL?

5: In APDL, how about an option for instant lookback which could be customised to individual needs, say 7/28/365 days? This would be easier than having to insert start/finish dates.

You can tell from all of the above I'm either very lazy or extremely time efficient! If I have brought up something which is already built in, Apologies. I have been using LogBook Pro for about a year now, and it has saved me a small fortune - well actually a rather large fortune now that I think about it.

If you can incorporate any/all of the above, then the best will just get better!
