The PADI App is a one-stop hub for the scuba diving world, delivering a mix of useful tools and reference guides to the fingertips of both recreational and professional divers. Here are 5 things that divers can do using the PADI App which will benefit you as a PADI Pro:
#1 – Log Dives
Divers can log both recreational and PADI Open Water Diver training dives on ScubaEarth via the PADI App, and with many reaching for their mobile devices as soon as they surface from a dive, they’ll have all of the tools they need to log – and share – their dive whilst it’s fresh in mind – right at their fingertips.
The Benefit to You: Divers logging accurate dives makes it easier for them to remember great experiences in the future, reminding them to come back to dive with you again. If they’ve shared their dives, their friends might even be inspired to join them!

The PADI App is currently available in English, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Thai – and there’s more to come in the future.
