Logbook Pro is doing a great job too, versions available for Iphone as well.

Different input formats available.

No complains

I use logbook pro, Backs up on the net and I can sync the data from my iPad to it.

Been using it for about 5 years now no problems, if your a US airline pilot it will also track you according to the various FAR's

I've been slowly transferring things to Logbook Pro over the past year and a half, or so. I've got one logbook transferred, and part of another.

I use it on the road, and then transfer everything back to my paper logbook when I eventually make it home.

I couldn't make friends with any of the commercial products I tried, so wrote my own in Excel.

Another vote for Log Ten Pro. Only runs on a Mac, or iPad, or iPhone but the best I've seen.

Logten Pro, does everything i want and quite a bit more, runs and synchs seemlessly between my various macs, iphone and ipad.

Pilotlog.co.uk does everything I need. No problems submitting printouts to the UK CAA for licenses and stuff either.

Safelog

I'm surprised no one mentioned safe log, I've tried a couple of the ones mentioned here, it's by far the best. You have to keep renewing your subscription though which is a bit annoying.

MCC Pilotlog for me here. It's a good program.
I hope they will soon incorporate the best features from LogTen Pro into the MCC so I don't have to consider a change if I'd get a Mac.

I would like to see though a summary of my duty and flight duty so I can easily track my limits.

@ayrianna, i used safelog for a couple years, but to be honest the switch to logten pro was well worth it. Better program, much better support and features as well.

Just started with MCC, and I'm very impressed.

It could (with a little effort) import previous logs from excel files, which has cut time to enter my flying history dramatically.

The support so far has been first-class. They even worked with me to get it working on Linux, which is fantastic.

I'm looking for a logbook like LogTen, but it should work on symbian and windows....

Trouble

Can anybody tell me if log ten pro does support direct import of the MMC backup data files?

I am experiencing a lot of trouble during installation again.
Their trouble shooting log on the webpage is longer than my ATP Question Summery...

Honestly... they should try to fix the software and not to make the user learn how to fix it.

I was Professional Subscription, but will not tale that trouble anymore.
Would like to change.

any suggestion how to rescue my data, as I cannot access them right now?

Thanks a lot for your support

Another vote for Log Ten Pro, all sorts of useful reports can be produced, 1 example would be the .kml file for google earth with all your flights on it.
