Great product for the HAM operator
I’ve used Don’s MacLogger program on the Mac for over 10 years. Don is a super developer and keeps his apps up-to-date. He also provides great support through his Yahoo groups, usually answering questions within a day. He does frequent app updates and is continually adding features. I was thrilled to see the iPad version of his logging software. The iPad app is well designed, easy to use and is great for mobile or fixed base use. The database is completely compatible with the Mac OS version of the program and sync’s through iTunes app document sharing. It doesn’t merge files with the desktop files, which was probably done to prevent errors or may be a limitation of iTunes data sync. A separate database is created that can be merged easily with the desktop version. The sync process is easy and well explained in his through help pages. You do not need the desktop app to use the iPad version, though. Great app that I enjoy using and would recommend to iPad using HAM’s. 73 K5AD - joe
MacLoggerDX HD is a great app
I never thought I would pay $40 for an iPad app, but a couple of weeks ago I purchased MacLoggerDX HD. I use MacLoggerDX as the logging program on my Mac and the two programs work together extremely well. The iPad version works very much like the Mac version. It is easy to sync the log on my Mac with the iPad. QRZ Online works well with both the cluster and the log and this is probably what I enjoy most about the program. I enjoy automatically seeing the photos associated with the different spots, just like on the Mac. It is also nice seeing the spots on the map. I always have my iPad with me and it is very convenient having a copy of my log, and DX spots with me. The unfortunate thing is that it is too easy to see what DX I am missing while I am working!
MacLoggerDX HD is a well-written iPad app and in a short period of time it has become one of my favorite apps.
Latest version (1.07) is a major upgrade to the logging portion
As a long time user of MacLoggerDX on the Mac I was excited about having some of that power in an iPad app.
However, after downloading 1.06 I found the Cluster portion to be great but was very dissappointed in the Logging section. I didn't think it was much of a log book program if you couldn't search previous contacts or even look at them without scrolling through the complete log.
Well, most of not all of my concerns have been addressed in version 1.07. Now that I can search for existing contacts and quickly be able to list previous QSO's with a tap of the "green" button the log is transformed in to a powerful tool
It's great to be able to have the iPad app control MacLogger on the desktop and using Airfoil I set up audio so I can hear what the radio is hearing. As I loaf on the patio if I see an interesting spot on the iPad I can take a listen and decide if I can hear the station and decide if it's workable before I run back in to the ham shack.
Very useful app.
