Support for Mac OS X 10.5 and PPC machines was dropped with version 2.1.0: http://www.mac-dive.com/help/index.php?title=Can_I_use_MacDive_with_Leopard%3F

The last PPC-compatible version was 2.0.6 (released June 10th 2011) and it is available from here: http://www.mac-dive.com/downloads/MacDive_2.0.6.dmg

I find macdive has some really cool features. It meets my needs ie allows me a pretty easy to use interface that stores all of my pertinent information regarding my dives. There have been a few bugs but the updates are pretty frequent and the developer is always happy (and quick) to respond to specific questions. I'm pretty new to mac so can't compare it to much other software. It really does everything I need it to do though ;)

I've been using Macdive for some time now to keep a logbook of my dives on my Mac.
I'm very pleased with the features this app has to offer. Dives can be downloaded directly from my divecomputer, merged with information out of Divelog for iPhone and stored on my Mac.
The software seemlesly integrates with Divelog, which i use on my iPhone. Although not all information is synced between the two, the developer added most things to the sync in the last update.
A simple feauture request by email during development of the latest version caused the request to be immidiately put in this latest version.

When i had problems using the app, the developer immediately replied to my request for help and went all the way to solve my problem, which he did. So i can't say anything else than that the support for this app is excellent!

I can reccomend this software to everyone who is looking for a program to keep a logbook of their dives on their computer. It is deffinately worth the little amount you have to pay for a license.

I reviewed this a couple of years ago, but it's come a LONG way since then and worth updating. Not only is it fantastic for managing all my dives, but it sync with Dive Log on my iPhone. The syncing hasn't been totally seamless, but considering it's two totally different developers, the updates and fixes come often. Nick is always quick and helpful. Totally worth the price, but then again I donated money for v1 because it natively supported my old dive computer when nothing else would.

It don't feel like a Mac App. Looks like - but the usebility is not as it should be. Drag'n'drop works not everywhere and the updating between the sections works also not every time.

To use this software as a hub for the dive log manager (iOS) its a very good idea. But it don't work with every (same) parameter. So you have to synchronies it manually.

Import from the Suunto D9 works fine.

Hey there,

Thanks for your review. Indeed, Dive Log and MacDive work very differently behind the scenes - the data doesn't match 100%.

The latest update, v2.1.0, was built after a lot of collaboration with the authors of Dive Log, and as a result is significantly better at syncing. Much more of the data matches up now, resulting in a much more efficient and much more accurate process. I'd love it if you could update to the latest version and have a play - I think it should address a lot of the problems!

If you have any usability problems, then please contact me at the support address so we can take a look. I'm always trying to improve things, so your feedback is very valuable.

Cheers.

At first I did not feel comfortable with the switch from freeware to shareware, but MacDive is actively developed and the communication with Nick( the developer) is very nice and my issues where handled quite fast. I have been a Suunto Dive Manager user and I am very glad to log my dives in MacOS. The interface looks Mac like, and the data are saved in a SQL-Lite database, which makes my data app-independant.

This development seemed a little 'thin' at first but with three updates in quick succession it's now looking very good; well worth the shareware fee.

On another note, the support from the team is superb - you get what you pay for? - I had an issue importing dives from a Suunto computer and the guys wasted no effort trying to remedy/explain it. It was fully sorted with the latest update. Excellent service.

So, other than becoming shareware with a price-tag of $25, have any new features been added to version 2.0?

I have enjoyed the application as freeware and I have no problem paying for this quality application as shareware if it has new and additional features and if it is going to be maintained more frequently than in the past.

A brief explanation for the evolutionary direction of this application would help along with the developers plans for maintenance.

Agreed - a new/upgraded feature list is in order here. I think perhaps 25 bucks is a bit steep, but without some indication of what was improved and added - I'm not sure I'll upgrade.

Very nice app that gives you tons of info and views compiled from data that is downloaded from dive computers.

Many dive computer manufacturers sell computer interfaces/software, but it's Windows only. MacDive gives you an alternative, and it's free, fast, and full featured.

Did I mention it was free? But by all means make a donation if you like it.

It works great with my Suunto D4 wrist watch dive computer, and under Snow Leopard too.

My only problem was not knowing I needed to install a driver on my Mac to use the USB cable connection. The MacDive site explains it fairly well, but it would be better to see a pop up or something in the app explaining the need for a driver. Better yet, a Read Me file included with the app would be a big help.

In any case, this app is very well made, and you can't beat the price.
