iPad Buying Advice

People often ask me which iPad they should buy to run Skydive Designer.
I have written my thoughts here.

Remember, if you buy an iPad specifically to use Skydive Designer, then I'd love to add you to my Hall of Fame :)

Sponsored by Aerodyne :)

Aerodyne have been kind enough to sponsor Skydive Designer.

The new 'Club Edition' of the Skydive Designer app is now completely free. It allows you to design jumps with up to 14 skydivers, and to view jumps of any size that you download from this site.

I'm really happy to have their support - and look forward to many more organisers using the app and hopefully sharing their jumps :)

Upload Multiple Files

You can now upload multiple jump files in one go.

Just select all your new jumps when uploading through the web interface.

Animated Previews on Facebook

It's all about sharing on Facebook :)

Now, when you share a multi-point jump on Facebook, you get an animated gif of the jump.

See this example on Facebook

Slow transitions by default for larger jumps

You can always click the 'slow' checkbox to slow down transitions.
Slow mode is now selected by default for any jump with more than 20 jumpers.
I'm thinking that larger jumps will typically have fewer points, and will benefit from a little more 'thinking time' as you watch.
Of course - if you want them to zip through the points, you can always deselect the 'slow' option.

Better display for slotted jumps

Slotted jumps now show the slots by default when you view the jump, and they also show the names of jumpers (in very small text!) right on the jump.

Here is an example

Thanks Bill for the suggestions.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Use keyboard shortcuts to navigate jumps. 
Left/Right for previous/next point
Up/Down for zoom in/out
Escape to go back to 'zoom to fit'

Jumps wrap around nicely

The old 'glitch' where jumpers did a massive spin to get back to point 1 has been fixed.
In a way, I'll miss it...
