I successfully ran LTP 5 & 6 on my iPad2 last night, duplicating the entry for the day's flying. LTP6 has downloaded as a separate App, not modified LTP5.
Ah, I think my problem is that I got the iPad version after September, so even though it was LTP5 it was technically LTP6.0 and when the real LTP6 came out (LTP6.01) it updated the one I had. They did it that way so that people purchasing it for the first time close to the upgrade date got a free upgrade to v6.

Logten Pro backup

Logten Pro for iPad is currently at half price on te app store (£27.99) so I am tempted to buy except for the backup problem.
I have an iPad but not a Mac so my only backup would be in iTunes I guess but I don't use iTunes ( dreadfully bad software ) I only use cloud backup. Does that mean for now there would be no backup of my logbook if I lost or broke my iPad?
How imminent is iCloud compatibility I wonder? Is it worth buying at the discounted price and hoping for it to arrive soon?

Too pricey

No way I am paying full price for an upgrade. Not even at 50% discount. I had paid for the full application once, and I am actually very happy with the features I currently have. Spending $149 + Iphone + Ipad just to see "what's new" it's senseless...
The whole upgrade to Lion OS was $40... and these guys want $149? I am not a new customer!!! I am not buying the app from scratch!
The price I paid originally was premium + already, and this behavior from coradyne is an insult! As someone said it before: greedy and arrogant.
I will not buy this upgrade for that kind of money even if I have to get back to carry the paper logbook in my briefcase.

Have stopped recommending it to fellow pilots

i agree with the last post. the upgrade price is just pure greed. I don't mind paying a small amount for an upgrade, they claim this is a major change, it doesn't look major from the screenshots. This is just a ridiculous price for an upgrade. Why would anyone in there right mind want to pay £128 for an UPGRADE, For *@&k sake you greedy B*@sT£$. Get a grip Noah.!!

Couldn't have said it better. I totally agree. So does every pilot I fly with. Upgrade costs must be nominal...or most people won't bother.

Guys in my company who have been considering buying LogTen Pro are now mostly saying to me that they will hold off buying until they can be more certain that ongoing costs won't continue to skyrocket.

I received a marketing survey from the company yesterday. I took the few minutes to complete it and express my displeasure with their upgrade gouge pricing. Here's hoping they see reason and don't kill this great product with a greedy grab for additional cash...

I am more than willing to pay a premium price for a premium product. But not every other year. Didn't buy the "upgrade" and don't plan to do it anytime soon. The previous version still runs fine and i don't see any reason to upgrade for a full price right now.

whatever price niche LTP wanna position themselves it's their decision, the sales numbers will either prove them wrong or right. However I expect them to be a little innovative next time and come out with a online solution like mycontrol or alike. Online is the future.

Updated Pricing...still too high

Here's the latest:

Quote:
So, what changes are we making?

You've told us what you think, and the majority is very clear! Here's what we're doing:
New Lower Price

We want every pilot to be able to take advantage of LogTen Pro, from students, to airplane owners, and from summer glider pilots to daily airline captains. Effective immediately, we've lowered the price of LogTen Pro across the board an average of 30%. Prices vary by region, but in US Dollars you can now get LogTen Pro for iPhone for only $29.99, iPad is $59.99, and for the Mac just $99.99.
Introducing LogTen Pro Universal

The overwhelming majority of pilots want to run LogTen Pro both on their iPhone AND their iPad. However, some people just need one or the other, what to do? We have been working around the clock and are just putting the finishing touches on a universal iOS app for LogTen Pro. We will still offer the individual iPhone and iPad versions for those of you who only want to run the app on one particular device, but now there will be a universal app so everyone who wants to run LogTen Pro on all their iOS devices can do it with a single purchase! Prices do vary from region to region (they're set by Apple) but in US Dollars LogTen Pro Universal will sell for just $79.99!
More LogTen Pro 6 upgrades

We want ALL our customers to be on the latest version! We will continue to offer our incredibly low half price upgrades (now just $14.99USD for iPhone, $29.99 for iPad and $49.99 for Mac during our upgrade days). In addition, we will offer upgrade opportunities each month for at least the next several months to ensure you all have a chance to upgrade when it's convenient for you.
I still believe $50 is WAY TOO MUCH for a minor program update for my MacBook. I won't be upgrading.

Has anyone upgraded lately? How was the experience? Was it worth it? From what I could read in LTP's site, the upgrade to version 6 is not only expensive but quite troublesome. I currently run version 3.2. I don't think I will upgrade for the time being.

I had no problem upgrading to v6. However i think the obly additional feature (i noticed) was the duty time graphis, which are difficult to handle (no split-duty rules).

I think the pricing is okay, as it is an awesome product and with the universal app (iPad and iPhone) they made a step towards the rigt direction.
But in my opinion, the upgrade from v5 to v6 shouldn't have been so expensive.
On the other hand, it is not possible to do a payable upgrade with apple products yet. So it is difficult for them to find the right balance between cheap upgrades for existing customers and the right pricing for new obes.

Cheers Mac

Thanks for the info. The only reason to upgrade would be to be able to sync the data among the devices. Beyond that, as you point out, there's not much new.

The developers get too greedy and end up trying to milk the costumers. This is what makes people resort to piracy online.

I think I'm gonna go do a search on some torrents site... brb

Can you sync an iPhone and iPad without a Mac?

Hi all,

I have both versions (6.0.8) on iPad and on iPhone but I cannot sync the two. I do not own a Mac and I am wondering whether you actually need one to sync?

Thanks.

Sync

Synching is -between- iOS devices and the Mac Application, so yes, you need a Mac in order to sync.

but can I print wirelessly from the iPhone?
I couldn't see a reply to this early question, the answer is 'absolutely'.
The system is AirPrint.

If like me you don't have an AirPrint enabled printer, you can still print wirelessly from your device by using 'AirPrint Activator" which can be used on a Mac/PC with any printer. How to Air Print to ANY printer from your iPod, iPad or iPhone

In a nutshell, it works and I'm most chuffed with it

Does anyone know why they got rid of the "public" Q&A part of the website.
Was very handy to learn new stuff now I need to email them all the questions I could have looked up

If you have an iPhone as well, get the logten universal app. It works on both (pay once) and they will serve as a back-up to each other. If you only have an iPad then I think you can still manually back-up if you sync with iTunes, but the easiest option is using apple's iCloud (free up to 5gb). Switch it on -in iCloud settings- and it should auto back-up daily (when connected to wifi).

I use MCC Pilotlog. I am really happy with it, but I have an issue with the program importing my roster to google calendar. Help desk has tried to import my aims file and they say it works, but I can not do it on my android phone neither on my android tablet.
Is this happening to me only, or any other user has the same problem?
