Sneak peek at upcoming Windows Phone update

It has been a little silent around the Windows Phone 7 version of Diving Log during the last time, but today I want to show you some of the upcoming great new features of the next big update. Below you can see the new logbook hub, which is the main interface and gives you access to your most important logbook data on your phone:

For those who are not familiar with the Windows Phone hub concept: hubs are the main interface for data on the phone where you have your most important information right at your fingertips. You can swipe left and right and it serves as starting point to dig deeper into your data. You can change the background image and pick your favorite photo from the picture library. When you tap on the arrow symbol in the top right corner of the dive list, you will get to a jump list to navigate quickly to any dive. When you tap on one of the tiles on the right side, you’ll get another jump list with your detailed data, e.g. all your dive sites.


To get the logbook file(s) onto your phone you will use the Dropbox sync function, already implemented in Diving Log on the desktop. The update will be available in 2nd half of October and will likely target the new Mango version of Windows Phone. In September you can join a beta test for this version. If you are interested to participate, please write me a short email. Data editing and uploading to Dropbox will unfortunately not yet be implemented in this version.
