    There was another thread on this. We are SOL for now unless you know how to code an app. Logbook pro is working on a solution possibly mid-2010 which means 2011.

    I also think Safelog may be working on one.

    I'm working on one at the moment.

    I use LogTen on my iPhone and it's okay, but the price is ridiculous.

    My outlook is to release the Android app, with a Windows/Mac desktop and Web counterpart shortly after. Hoping for the Android app to be at a stable release within 1 month's time, with a beta release somewhere in between now and then.

    Got some great features planned, like being able to export in different logbook formats from the web similar to the LogTen desktop version.

    If anyone has any suggestions I'm willing to hear them! Just send me a PM on these forums.

    Just my own opinion, I'm sure whatever comes down the pike will be great and I may try them all.

    I'm already using logbook pro with my laptop, to have an app on my Droid would be kinda redundant to me, unless it could synch up with my laptop install. Lately after the day's flying I just hit my laptop for it ...

    RW-1: Can you PM me the website to that application you use? I would definitely be willing to check out integration from several other popular apps.

    Also, a lot of pilot's haven't made the jump to digital logbooks yet, and some of them never will. It's every developers goal to provide something that will work for everyone.

    If you can make even a somewhat useful logbook for the droid, I will be one of your first customers. I would love to be able to record times right after my flights.

    Database as Logbook

    In my recent Treo days I logged all my flights and instruction given in a datebase called JFile. I was able to define fields, have pull down menus for aircraft, N numbers,etc. and it was also searchable and filter-able so I was able, on the fly to see when I last flew with a student, how many times, in what aircraft, etc. REALLY miss it. Just not the same getting the laptop out at the end of the day....I kept the last 6 years of flying and instruction on it and export to Excel for permanent paper record.....JFile is not planning on developing for Android...I'm in for a solution.
    -Would like to see the features above as well as import functions.
    Thanks.

    Please keep us updated on here or twitter. I'm at a daily loss without a logbook (having to bring my old WM6 phone on the road, and use APDL)

    Suspense is killing me for a LOGBOOK app................:icon_eek:

    Since us pilots have no solutions, I suggest users email this company, flogger, who have an app for IPHONE, and tell them to get with the times, and get a ANDROID app out there!

    The number one company is logbookpro.com They say they are working on it but they aren't. They are working on an iphone app first. Any company would focus their attention on iphone over Droid given the choice.

    I have Logbook Pro and have used it on my PC for years. I swear it's one guy and his pet fish running the company. Never seen a company so far behind technology as these people. It's always "we're working on it." By the time they come out with an Android app most of us will have moved on.

    I'm hoping to cut my teeth programming a weight and balance program. I work for a part 135 operator so I just use my flight and duty log as my logbook now. I will have to check on the app I use to use on my Palm for logbook stuff.

    I worked with the guy to wrote the program. He is a airline pilot who does logbookpro as a side business. Yes, he is slow compared to other companies because it's him and one other programmer.

    I, however, have yet to see a better program than APDL for professional pilots. Unfortunately I don't have time to code so I'm at the mercy of others. There is a guy at my airline who is currently writing an iphone and android logbook program. However, I believe it will only be released to employees and unavailable to others due to company regulations.
