Zululog.com, which offers a free online logbook, announced recently it has released an accompanying Android application.
The application, which is also free, allows users to track information on their phone or Android tablet. Although the application is meant to be used in connection with a Zululog.com account, it can be used independently. If connected to the Web, the application will automatically sync with the Zululog.com account, or wait to connect and update later if out of range during use.
Users can track things such as PIC currency, instrument currency, and all the normal logbook parameters. If a user creates custom fields in the online logbook, those fields are also imported to the application.
Also included is a counter feature that keeps track of flight conditions in real time, and then imports that information into the logbook with a single click. There are other ancillary features, including “flashlights” and regulation references.
The company expects to make iPad and iPhone applications available later this year.

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
