How do I get Safelog for Mac?
You can download Safelog for Mac for FREE from the download link above. If you're an experienced Mac user, installation should be straightforward. However, for those of you who could use a little assitance, we will soon make an instructional video on how to install it.
Safelog for Mac requires a SafelogWeb.com account to use. This means that while you can download and install Safelog for Mac free on your Mac (or as many Macs as you'd like), to actually use it you need an active and current SafelogWeb.com account.
How do I purchase Safelog for Mac?
Safelog for Mac is FREE for those who have a SafelogWeb.com account. Therefore, to use Safelog for Mac, please visit the SafelogWeb Signup Page
I am exsiting SafelogWeb user. Do I have to re-type my data into Safelog for Mac?
No, it's all automatic. You just enter your SafelogWeb username and password, and all your data will synchronize seamlessly. The whole process takes just a few moments.
Safelog is a fully-integrated system where all the component parts are made to work together and synchronize for maximum ease, flexibility, and security for you.
By the way, this highlights a big difference between Safelog and, well, all other pilot logbook systemms out there.
While theirs are one-trick-ponies, technologically speaking, ours is an integrated system. This means that when the next great platform comes along, be it a mobile platform or a PC or whatever
comes down the road, we can make a compabible and transitional system for it straightforwardly, meaning that Safelog is designed to be future-proof as well as multiply-redundant.
Does Safelog for Mac have all the features of Safelog PC or SafelogWeb?
While Safelog for Mac is loaded with features, initially it won't have everythig that it's older brothers do. The version you can download here includes key features that allow you to do things like log flights, view your logbook, manage your aircraft and your contacts, and so forth and quite a few
secondary features as well. Some more advanced things, like printing and advanced reporting, are done via SafelogWeb. This means,
for example, that you must be connected to the Internet in order to print from Safelog for Mac. The entire process is very smooth and integrated.
From a user's standpoint, if you're connected to the Internet on the rare occasions that you migth need some feature not yet natively implemented in the Mac app, as you typically will be, you won't notice much or any difference.
Do I have to be connected to the Internet in order to use Safelog for Mac as a day-to-day thing?
No, you don't. You can use it anywhere you have your Mac, connected to the Internet or not.
Safelog for Mac is standalone software for your Mac. So, for example, you can use it to log flights on your Mac notebook when you're at an exotic airport without an internet connection, and then synchronize your data with the rest of your logbook once you're back home. Synchronization
will both make a backup and get you up to date with things like updates to the built in airport database. It's a good idea to synchronize regualrly to stay up-to-date and to help protect againset, for example, loss of logbook data due to loss or theft of your portable Mac.
How do I synchronize Safelog for iPhone/iPad or Android with Safelog for Mac?
Click 'synchronize' in the Safelog for Safelog for iPhone/iPad or Safelog for Android app on your mobile device. This will send your data from your mobile device to the SafelogWeb central server. Then, click on 'Synchronize' or 'Web Sync' inside Safelog for Mac. This will get the data from SafelogWeb
and put it on your Mac. Safelog for Mac does not synchronize with your iPhone/iPad via direct cable conncetion to your device.
How can I get Safelog for iPhone/iPad/Android?
By "one time purchase" we mean that if you purchase either the iPhone/iPad or Android app, you own it forever, subject to the terms of the corresponding app market. Both the iPhone/iPad and Android apps require an active SafelogWeb/SafelogMac and/or Safelog PC subscription.
What if I have two Macs?
We got you covered. Just install Safelog on Mac for both. They will happily synchronize with each other via SafelogWeb. You can install Safelog for Mac on as many Macs as you like for no additional charge.
Two (or more) of us share the same Mac
We've got you covered. Just go into the "version and licensing" screen of Safelog for Mac and you can change from one user to another on the same Mac. You must be connected to the Internet while you switch.
Can I try a free demo of Safelog for Mac?
Not yet. Before too long, our plan is to allow new users to create free trial accounts of SafelogWeb. During your SafelogWeb trial period, you will be able to try Safelog for Mac for free by using your demo credentials. Until such trial accounts are ready and available,
however, we apologize that there is no Safelog for Mac demo per se.
However, in general, the user experience of Safelog for Mac is broadly similar to that of SafelogWeb, and what you can do is visit SafelogWeb and click on 'try a demo' to see one of the pre-made demo accounts of SafelogWeb to get a feel
for the system. Safelog for Mac is similar, though it is Mac software so it has a more "Mac-like" user experience.
I just want Safelog for Mac.
We do udnerstand you and that can be perfectly reasonable for some. However, please understand what SafelogWeb actually is--it's two things. It's an online web-based logbook that you can log into via any web browser at www.Safelogweb.com and it serves as an intermediary
for synchronizing, backing up, and updating your data between various Safelog platforms, including multiple Macs (such as your current one and your future one). So, even if you intend on using Safelog only on your Mac, you actually do want SafelogWeb as it will provide you with rich features,
future-proofing, and backup that you will find useful. Or, to put it another way, you can think of purchasing SafelogWeb access purchasing Safelog for Mac access.
I am an existing user of Safelog for PC (but not SafelogWeb) and want to use Safelog for Mac
I've used other logbook software in the past, such as LogTenPro or LogbookPro but have seen the light and would like to switch to Safelog. How can I get my logbook data over?
Fear not, we've govt you covered. We've helped thousands of people, including hundreds of both former LogTenPro users and LogbookPro users to transition to Safelog via our Free Transition Service
Now that Safelog for Mac is available, we redouble our welcome to users of that and other
logbook systems. All you will need to do is to upload the data file from your old logbook system and we will help transition your data into Safelog. Under most cases, you don't need to re-type anything.
