Default Digital Logbooks

OK, getting back in the cockpit after airline training for 5 years. Always used paper. It was required in Japan.

Looking for digital logbook recs. with a best reason why.

Standing by for ridicule, humiliation and the harsh.

I use APDL and Logbook Pro. It's pricy but makes sure I'm within 117 limits and it helps with commuting.

I'm not an Apple guy, but I'll throw another vote in favor of Logten Pro. I tried several free logbooks, and nothing matches the ease of use or does exactly what it can do. Keeping track of currency and duty limits is effortless, and it's nice for keeping track of all your different flight categories. Also, generating a PDF of a Jeppeson style paper log that you can print out for interviews takes about two clicks. Other programs will do the job, but Logten just does it more efficiently.

Is there one that works with Merlot Crew Schedules? After 7 years of not logging, I am hoping to find that is interfaced with Merlot.
I know that the most aforementioned work with Crewtrac, Flica & the likes..
Thanks in advance.

You set the airport you commute from and your domicile and it will find flights for you based on your report times.

I personally wrote up an excel file a while ago. I can tailor it to what I need, so if I'm filling out an app, I can filter things out for some of the weirder times that would be hard to figure otherwise. It's all on Google drive so I just enter times on my phone after shutting down at the gate.
