Why mobile apps? Because you are travelling often and sometimes may not have your desktop PC or laptop with you.
Of course don’t forget web based apps too, I will have another post on them.
Our skydiving logbook is a web based app too, accessible from any device (with mobile versions coming soon).
Now, on to the list. Don’t be surprised that some of the apps are actually games – skydivers also like to play I guess.
