especially when flying abroad where i'm not so familiar with city and airport names i often find myself using both my mobile phone and tablet at the same time both running skydemon. on the tablet i display the map and all while on the mobile phone i keep the pilot log open. this allows me to have a list of my next waypoints with names and ETA's at hand when i make radio calls and i can still see the map and other traffic while i wait for a busy radio frequency to become available for my broadcast.
i wanted to post a feature request for a split-screen view that would allow me to show the pilot log on the other half of the screen. i wanted to suggest that also pdf's with airport information could be displayed this way during for example the approach briefing in-flight.
However, i realized that skydemon and android (and i think also iOS) can already do this to a sufficient extent. so rather than a featur request, this is a tipp for other that might want the same feature. Please note, i haven't tried this in flight yet, only on the ground (as in, just now i in my office chair
i can't give instructions for ios devices as i have none available. but here is how i did it on my android phone:
Please note, skydemon, at least on my android phone, re-starts when switching between fullscreen and split-screen mode.. so its probably best to prepare your setup on the ground before take-off.
1.) with skydemon as your active window, enable split screen mode. on a modern android that is done going to the recent apps view (the view that allows you to switch back and forth between running apps) and clicking on the icon of skydemon and then select split screen.
2.) select any app as your secondary app
3.) in skydemon go to the pilot log display and select "print" in the upper right corner. Choose "A5" as papersize
4. this will open the generated PDF in the other part of the split-screen and you will see your pilot log there. in your skydemon window you can now switch back to the map display get in the air
