Dive Computer(s) Simulator (and Planner)
New iPad (and PC) App for divers
As you might know, we recently released an iPhone App for Dive Computers Training
that allows to see our online classes in a native iPhone environment.
We liked working with the iOs tools / environment so much that we decided to jump right way into another nice App for the iPad .
This new amazing toy will allow You to draw - with your fingers - a dive profile and then analyze it.
You will also be able to PLAY the dive and see dynamically how the levels of inert gasses change in your body and/or how you model-specific dive computer displays the
relevant dive information such as Current Depth, No Deco Time, Air Time Remaining, Tank Pressure, O2 Accumulation, .......
So far we are getting very good feedback on this tool as it seems to be the perfect tool for an instructor to demonstrate a model-specific dive computer to his/her OW students.
We expect to submit this new App for review to Apple before the end of August.
And for the ones among You that don't have an iPad - or prefer the good old PC, we are also making a PC version of this App.
One more thing .... we still don't have a (GOOD) name for this tool ..... any suggestion is appreciated: one year of Premium Service if we select the name you suggested!
Change is in the Air
Premium Service / Lobsters Hunt / Free Simulated Computers
In the next 30 days we will gradually implement some changes to our systems:Premium Service
Right now you can purchase the premium with Bubble Credits, but soon this will change and the only way to get a Premium Membership will by by purchasing it via PayPal. So, if you have a pile of Bubble Credits stashed away ... use them asap to get you the Premium status!
Lobsters Hunt Game
Effective August 1st 2011, we will not give away anymore monthly prizes (Bubble Credits) to record holders.
The game itself will still be available - including stats on the website.
Free Simulated Dive Computers
In the near future .... when you enroll in an online class of a model-specific dive computer, that dive computer will be automatically added to your dive gear and be ready for you to use in the eDiving simulator AND in the new Apps we are developing (see above). This availability will be limited to 30 days.
We plan to roll-out this new feature before the end of August.Stars and Bubbles
We are planning to SUBSTANTIALLY
change the way we award Bubble Credits to users of the eDiving simulator; details are not firm yet ... but ... in general there will be WAY MORE
Bubble Credits hidden in dive sites and WAY LESS
(basically ZERO) Bubble Credits given for just completing a dive.
If you want the goodies ... You have to find them.
This will be true ALSO for our 5 stars users.
A quick Thank You note from one our members .....
|The other day radhal wrote a nice post about his experience with the recently released VT 4.0 online class::|
"Just finished the VT 4 eDiving class and found it extremely informative and a really useful adjunct to the manual. Getting proficient using the simulator may take some time, however. Thanks Oceanic for the free code and eDiving for providing this excellent learning tool."
I - and the rest of the DiveNav Team - really appreciate when one of our members take the time to leave us a Thank You note.
Keep them coming !
