Dive Log Manager is a companion application to Dive Log for iOS. Dive Log Manager is a free desktop application that allows you to manage your digital scuba diving log book between your iOS device and your desktop. Enter logbook information on your iOS device while at the site, then transfer this information back to your desktop using Dive Log Manager. If you have other application software to download your dive computer, you can use Dive Log Manager to import and *merge* that information into what you already entered on site. Dive Log Manager supports several different logbook formats to import from as well as from Garmin and Divesoft dive computers. Then sync all your logbook information back to your mobile device running Dive Log for iOS.
Dive Log Manager works in both metric and imperial, shows statistics about your diving history, keeps track of all your scuba equipment, shows buddy and personal information, and dive site details. View Dive Site Locations on a map in your web browser if GPS locations have been entered. Export dive information into DL7 format to transfer to DAN or other websites.
See our other Mac App Store application, Dive Log DT, for a full featured digital logbook application.

Ratings and Reviews
Good app, bad title
I agree with both sides of the fence - it's a good app and it does what it says if you pay close attention to what it claims. BUT with the word "Manager" in the title one would expect to be able to actually manage their dive log. In order to "Manage" a dive log one should be able to "edit" it. The word "Manager" in the title should be replaced with something more accurate or add the word LITE to it as other free apps do. However, according to their website, you can purchase the license, which is simply an upgrade to the DT version. The DT version does allow you to actually "Manage" your dive log by editing details.
Future consumer beware. If you want to modify (beyond merge) or actually "manage" your log - do not download this app. Save yourself the time and PURCHASE the DT version or PURCHASE the iPad/iPhone version and "manage" your dive logs from iOS.
Recommend the author reword their description as follows: Dive Log Manager is a free desktop applcation that allows you to BACKUP, VIEW and MERG ENTRIES from your digital dive log data on your iOS device onto your desktop.
Amateurish application. Sync is a mess, with outdated explanation of how to perform the function. There has to be better apps out there.
Does just what it says... for what that is worth
This is not "fakeware" as claimed by another reviewer. It does its job just fine, allowing syncing of dive records with the iPhone app. Do I wish it did more? Absofrickinlutely. Two way sync with other dive log programs would be nice, though that functionality is sort of accomplished with the pay version. I do wish it could sync with anyof the various online dive log services. If the pay version did that, I would pay for it in a heartbeat.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
