With the Add-on Biography you can create your personal logbook by combining all your ship journeys in a digital book, no matter if you kept your logbook with Logbook or Logbook Lite or if you had written it classically by hand.
And since Biography is not a ship’s logbook, but your personal maritime biography, Biography is not limited to travels with a particular ship.
From the logbooks that you kept with Logbook or Logbook Lite the travel and ship data can be imported directly into Biography. For adding your travel and ship data from logbooks, which only exist in paper form, dialogs lead you through the steps to enter all relevant information. This is also easy and not very time-consuming.
For each travel you will find in Biography an overview of the most important data and Biography calculates, exactly as you are used to from Logbook, total values and averages, which are then displayed in a summary. You can collect in Biography all the information required for the RYA cruise logs of completed trips
A very useful feature of Biography is the search function, with which you can search for places, person names, etc. For example, Biography will show you every day when you were at a certain place or every day when a certain person was on board with you. In addition to displaying the individual logbooks with their trips, Biography also offers a continuous list of trips sorted by start date as well as a list view of the ships.
In addition to the voyage data, Biography can also collect documents related to the logbook. These can be, for example, photos or scans of the pages of a handwritten logbook, a PDF of your logbook created with Logbook or Logbook Lite, nautical mileage logs or a photo of the overall track.
Of course, it is also possible to print your maritime biography or to save it in a PDF.
In the demo mode of Biography you can create 2 logbooks and 2 ships. Entering a serial number converts your trial version of Biography into an unlimited full version that can be used on all types of devices.
