I'm very pleased to announce that RVCare Logbook 3 is available now. 🥳
This version concentrates on the underpinnings of the app. It's been a small mountain of work, getting the app back into shape for the future. Future releases will have improvements and new features but it was crucial to modernise the app itself first. Officially this is a "public beta" for a few weeks, until we iron out the worst of the bugs.
This update is free for all current customers but you will require a new license key. If you haven't already done so, please email me with your old license key and I will send you an email with the new key. Completely free of charge. All I ask in return is that you support the app by telling your friends on the road about it!
Officially this is a "Public Beta" which means things might not be perfect yet. So much has changed under the hood, and I still need time to work with Apple to satisfy them for the App Store, that it seems a good idea to call this a beta. I have fixed a ton of bugs but that wasn't actually the focus of this initial version of the rebuild. There's a good chance that a bug that's been bugging you has been fixed but the focus was the modernisation of the app underneath.
Compatability with existing data
And, yes, RVCLB 3 is 100% compatible with all your existing data.
You may know this, but we acquired RBCLB from the original author (Jim Smith, no relation) a couple of years ago, as he was retiring, and I thought the app was way too useful to let fade away. This means you probably didn't buy the app from me and I've received no income from you. And that's okay - my promise to Jim was that you would receive RVCLB 3 free of charge (and all the bug fixes that will follow!) and I am honoring that commitment.
However, for RVCLB 3, your current license key will not work and will need converted to a new license key (again, free of charge). To receive your new key, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your current license key, and please confirm the email address you wish to associate with your key.
Mac App Store
If you purchased from the Mac App Store, don't worry, you won't be left out. You can either wait until it's ready for the App Store (hopefully we'll satisfy Apple's requirements over the next couple of weeks) or you can email me and we can work out a way to prove your purchase, so that I can send you a license key and get you up and running quicker.
Need help? Find bugs?
If you need help or want to report bugs, simply post here on the forum (don't post your license key though!) or send me an email to email@example.com.
Thanks for your support and interest in RVCLB!
