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.
Is Safelog for Mac a stanadlone app?
Basically, yes. Most or all of the key features that you need to use your logbook on a day to day basis are in Safelog for Mac. This means that it is far, far more than a thin "cloud" app like some of our competitors have. That said, some features do require an
internet conenction and a few more rarely used features are available as cloud services within the app. You do NOT need to be online or rely on our servers for day to day things like logging flights, running reports, creating printouts, and so forth. An
internet connection is required to synch your logbook however, so that for example you can coordinate flights between your macbook and your tablet or phone.
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.
