    OK, so having been an Android user for as long as i can remember, i've been a very avid fan of the Multi-Deco app for all my deco planning needs.....

    However, i've recently made the switch to an iPhone, and as a not so closet tight arse.... I struggle to bring myself to pay for an app that i've already paid for once, albeit on a different platform.....

    So.... what other "GOOD" options for deco software are others using on iPhone?

    Why not just hang onto your old phone and continue to use the app?

    MultiDeco. Best user interface IMHO. Not the cheapest though. It's consistent across all platforms - Mac, iPhone, iPad. I think it works on a pee-see

    Others are PastoDeco - quirky UI. Has a free limited demo version.
    Looks like Baltic Deco's not been updated for a while.

    I've thought about doing exactly this...... and has the added advantage that if i lose, or damage the phone on a boat etc.... it's an old phone, not my new shiny one.... definitely a consideration....

    Baltic for me too. Is so easy to use. Try the Lite version first but I think you'll soon upgrade.

    You can use the iPhone version on the iPad, sure it doesn't fill the screen but it works fine

    Can use the X2 zoom option to make it bigger.

    It's cheap (the full version) and easy to use. Play with it. I tweet the GF's in Baltic to produce similar results to my vision or ostc. I run 50/85 but Baltic runs on 50/75. I think it's due to a earlier version of tables ( B. Versus C)

    Looking up the differences between ZHL-B and ZHL-C

    From the font of all knowledge, Wikipedia...
    • ZHL-16B: The 16 compartment algorithm modified for dive table production, using slightly more conservative “a” values, mainly in the middle compartments.[8] Recently used in dive computers with high performance processor units, is it more flexible (especially in tech dives) compared to the ZHL16C
    • ZHL-16C:The 16 compartment algorithm with further modification to the middle and faster “a” values, intended for use in dive computers as a "package". It can be used with almost all low-level processor units but it is less flexible compared to the ZHL16B.

    I really like iDeco pro for both planning and blending.
