  • “Great Product. I had a question regarding the formatting of the spreadsheet, and within minutes, I had an answer from the support team. ★★★★★

  • “I too hate subscription-based logbooks. The only one that is nice is LogTen, all the others are horrible or they require gymnastics to fill them properly. But LogTen has two HUGE problems: almost $150 per year and ONLY Mac & iOS. Sucks. After huge research and a lot of tryouts, the Excel logbook solution is the only one really cost-effective, fully customizable and really cross-platform. Nice job! ★★★★★

  • “I switched to this from some of the more expensive app-based electronic logbooks that require subscriptions and have never looked back. It's brilliant! ★★★★★

  • “Your logbook is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to stay clear of LogTen Pro and was planning on making something myself in Excel. I’m reasonably competent at it but when googling for ideas on how to format it all I found your option, which made my life easier and seems well worth the $$. ★★★★★

  • “I was a satisfied Safelog customer for years but quit using their product in 2014 when they changed from device-based software to a Cloud-based system. Due to security concerns, I refuse to allow my personal information and data to be stored on or accessed by the Cloud, so I looked elsewhere for logbook software. Your Excel-based logbook is one of the few PC/device-based alternatives available in today’s Cloud Obsessed market. Thanks ★★★★
