Apps for Dive Managers

Happy Mobile Phone Image

There are many ‘Apps’ that are of use to Divers and Dive Managers. Here are a few of them. Some are on Android and some on Apple, most are on both. Some are pay for and some free. You can also use a lot of them on PC or Mac. The best thing to do is try everything you are interested, find the one that works best for you and delete the rest. Be careful of your App settings as some Apps like to be in constant contact but you can usually alter settings so they only ‘phone home’ when they are connected by Wi-fi.
