Default OSX or iOS

Hook,

I'm very interested in an OSX or iOS version of a Builder's Log. Keep me posted.

Cheers,
Jim

Things I'd want in a computer based log:
  • Cross-platform. With all the cross-platform development tools available, there is really no reason to stick to a sole platform anymore (Listening, Garmin? Where's the Windows or Linux version of Pilot?)
  • Can save /local/Cloud/both.
  • More than three images per entry. Better still to integrate images and text.
  • Can specify order of multiple daily entries. (Kitlog seems to go in reverse of when it was entered ... sometimes).
  • Allow attachments to entries, such as PDF manuals or bills, or other documents.
  • Allow a list of parts. So that I can find the entry where I used R10XX, for example.
  • An equipment list. Not just airframe/engine/prop but so you can keep model/serial info on your avionics, too, without having to bury the info in a log entry.

I'm sure I could think of more. And I like many of the features of Kitlog, such as categories, manual reference (though expand the field - some days I cover a lot of manual), and assistants.

Thanks Bob. I stand corrected.

I see the ability to see other's work as a key function. How many hours are folks scanning the blogs and websites of others to get that one angle-drill then back-rivet picture?

Based upon the number of emails I receive asking questions from photos on mykitlog.com site, quite a bit more that you would think.

Me three but judging from page views (10,000 last year) maybe they are getting the disinformaton they want or don't need.
Most of the time I'm pretty lost.
