Scuba divers familiar with the diviac cloud-based digital dive logbook should be happy to learn this: it’s now available on the iPhone and iPad. Diviac was launched in 2013 with direct dive computer connectivity along with a marine life database of 14,000 fish and full geo-coding of all logs.
Unfortunately, access to the Internet can be spotty at best on dive trips, and completely non-existent on non-existant on liveaboards. That’s why the diviac app includes all of the features of the service in-app, with downloadable country packs. Divers can have all of the local dive sites, dive centers, and local fish right on their phones to reference and log.
When connected to the Internet, the app automatically synchronizes your dive data with your diviac account, and allows 24/7 access to the information you need to best enjoy your dive. You can post your dives to Facebook or Google+ and take advantage of a community of fellow divers.
Offline, the app gives you access to the full database of marine life for the country you’re diving in, along with information at your fingertips about dive sites, dive centers, and helpful tips.

Diviac is available for free on the App Store.
