[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - Coradine Aviation Systems today announced a major update to their logbook for Mac - LogTen Pro 6.0. The update is expected to launch by the end of September and includes over 100 enhancements and new features and will be a free upgrade for any pilot purchasing LogTen Pro 5 from September 20th onward.
One of the most important features of the latest version of LogTen Pro is the integration of Apple's iCloud. Pilots will no longer have to worry about backing up their data, with iCloud backups are automatic and the latest flight data is always available, on every device. LogTen Pro 6.0 also takes advantage of full Lion compatibility including full screen, auto-save and 'versioning' so pilots, should they need to, can go easily go back in time with their logbook.
LogTen Pro's legendary flexibility and ease of use continues to be a focus in this latest version. The user interface has been simplified further so pilots see only the information they have specified on the dashboard. And a new dynamic report has been added which enables pilots to print reports that reflect the exact layout they have set up on screen for themselves.
Noah Lieberman, Founder and CEO of Coradine said, "All the new features in LogTen Pro 6.0 for Mac have been requested by pilots using the application in the field. We are continually striving to provide apps that are easy to use and can be customized to each pilots individual needs. The new interface, visual duty tracking and iCloud integration are only the beginning, LogTen Pro 6.0 is truly the next generation in electronic logbooks."
Of particular interest to commercial and business pilots is the new visual duty limits tracking screen which gives a birds eye view of a pilot's flight time, enabling them to see past, present and future flights on a simple graph and know immediately of any potential duty limit issues with the exact date and flight highlighted in red.
Other enhancements in LogTen Pro 6.0 for Mac include:
* Pilots can now enter log data other than flights. Enabling them to track all their time easily and then attribute any number of logs to a "Trip" to easily organize their time in the air and on the ground
* Pilots can now log multiple approaches per flight
* Auto-enter and 'picker' enhancements make entering data even faster
Pricing and Availability:
LogTen Pro 6.0 for Mac will be available soon in the Mac App Store for $149.99 (US). Current LogTen Pro 5 users will be contacted with a special offer to upgrade for half price and all purchases made after September 22nd will receive a free upgrade to version 6.0.
