Announcing Subsurface-mobile for Android

The Subsurface development team proudly announces the first release (version 1.0.2) of Subsurface-mobile for Android, an open source dive log for phones and tablets.

This release is the result of all of our work on Subsurface and a year long development effort towards a mobile user interface that is optimized for phones and tablets. We got tremendous help from the KDE community to get us to this first release. Subsurface-mobile is the first application that implements the Kirigami UI using the Kirigami Controls by KDE.

Subsurface-mobile gives you access to your dive data on your mobile device. Simply store your dive data from the Subsurface desktop application in the Subsurface cloud and access it on your tablet or phone with the same credentials. This way your dive data are seamlessly shared between your computer at home and your mobile device. Regardless where you make changes to your data, they are synced and visible the next time you connect from any computer or device.

You can scroll through your dive list and view dive details for individual dives. You can edit many of these details right on the device and even manually add new dives.

At this point Subsurface-mobile is best used together with the Subsurface desktop application. As we continue our development we plan to make the mobile application even more useful by itself -- especially once we are able to download dive data directly from (some) dive computers. Right now you still need the Subsurface desktop application for this.

Subsurface-mobile can track your GPS locations on dive trips (and replaces the old Subsurface companion app that some of you may have used in the past for that purpose) and can show the location of dive sites on a map.

An iOS version of Subsurface-mobile is also under development, we expect to start alpha testing it within the next few weeks.

Subsurface-mobile is available in the Google Play store.

For those who don’t have access to Google Play, you can download the APK directly from our server to your device as well. Please use this link from your Android device and install the APK after it finished downloading. If you haven’t enabled installation from “unknown sources” your device will present a warning to that effect. Subsurface-mobile-1.0.2.arm.apk

Please check the Subsurface-mobile user manual for details on how to get started and report any issues that you find on our User Forum.

Subsurface-mobile for Android — first beta

The Subsurface developer team is thrilled to announce the first beta release of our mobile app for Android.

Subsurface-mobile connects to your Subsurface cloud storage account and allows you to access your dive list from your mobile device. You can scroll through your dives, look at dive details and dive profiles, edit dives, even add new dives on your phone or tablet. After an initial sync Subsurface-mobile works offline, so no worries about being on a dive boat and not able to connect to the network -- the data will be synced at the next opportunity when you are back within signal range.

Subsurface-mobile also includes the GPS tracking functionality of the old Subsurface companion app which allows you to collect precise GPS fixes for your dive sites.

At this point Subsurface-mobile will be most useful when used together with the existing Subsurface desktop application. Most notably, downloading dives from your dive computer is so far not possible from Subsurface-mobile (but that is on our to-do list for at least some classes of dive computers).

In order to try Subsurface mobile on your Android device simply opt in at this opt in link.

Announcing Subsurface 4.5.3

The Subsurface development team proudly announces the release 4.5.3 of Subsurface, an open source dive log and dive planning program for Windows, Mac and Linux.
Some of the new additions since Subsurface 4.5.2:

  • Fix confusing warning about different number of tanks and gases on some Suunto dive computers
  • Fix missing temperatures on some Suunto dive computers
  • Fix several corner cases in the Uemis support
  • Fix a few random UI inconsistencies (UI elements not being cleared / removed / reset in certain circumstances)
  • Cloud storage: no longer store picture binary data in the Subsurface cloud storage -- this could cause excessively long sync times
  • When matching dive site names when entering a location name, match anywhere in the location name, not just from the beginning (this makes it much easier to find existing dive locations if you remember only part of the name)
  • Some fixes for importing data from other formats
  • English user manual has been updated for language consistency and readability

Binaries are available for Windows, Mac, and a number of Linux flavors (Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, Fedora, and openSUSE).

Announcing Subsurface 4.5.2

The Subsurface development team proudly announces the release 4.5.2 of Subsurface, an open source dive log and dive planning program for Windows, Mac and Linux.

This release only adds a few small updates to our dive computer support, including support for downloading dives from OSTC dive computers with the latest firmware.

Binaries are available for Windows, Mac, and a number of Linux flavors (Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, Fedora, and openSUSE). For other Linux distributions we have for the first time a universal AppImage for Subsurface that should work on most any 64bit version of Linux. We are very interested in feedback on this AppImage and would appreciate if you drop us a line if you are using this.

Announcing Subsurface 4.5.1

The Subsurface development team proudly announces the release 4.5.1 of Subsurface, an open source dive log and dive planning program for Windows, Mac and Linux. Not a lot of major issues have come up since the release Subsurface 4.5, this release fixes most of the bugs reported so far:

Excerpt of dive log as web page
  • Several errors in translations were fixed, one of which could cause a crash when running Subsurface in German and using the dive planner.
  • Many translations have been improved, especially the Hebrew translation has made a huge leap forward and is now complete.
  • Two issues related to our integration with divelogs.de were addressed: uploads now work from Windows and uploads from all platforms now correctly recreate location / site information if that information had previously been downloaded from divelogs.de.
  • We fixed a problem that caused a situation where in some environments users weren’t able to edit the print templates.
  • The Suunto EON Steel is now supported on Mac.
  • Tank sizes set on the Suunto EON Steel are now downloaded and added on the equipment tab of the dive.
  • Further support for free divers.
  • Several algorithmic improvements leading to better profiles, better SAC rate visualization, and better detection of the time offset when matching pictures to dives.
  • We fix several UI issues.

Binaries are available for Windows, Mac, and a number of Linux flavors (Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, Fedora, and openSUSE).
