I’m excited to say that Capylabs will be attending the Dubai Airshow from 17-21 November.  We hope to meet many people involved in the training of the Aviation industry.   If you’re planning on attending, be sure to contact us to co-ordinate a meeting.

Are you still using traditional ‘old media’ ways of presenting your training?  Most typically this will be in the form of physical handouts for students and Powerpoint presentations.  This type of training has been the norm for almost two decades.  Surely with the proliferation of mobile technology there is a way to harness this resource?

It’s been an exciting week here at Capylabs.   Firstly, I was checking the stats for SCUBA Log on App Annie, and found that it had just passed 5000 downloads!  I remember getting excited at the 100, and 500 mark.  Since coming out in January the download rate has grown as more users are posting […]

Now that the Pro Version of SCUBA Log has been out for a couple of months, it has been interesting to have a look at the conversion rates from the free version to the paid version.  Conversion rates (or click through rates) are something you read a lot about for people selling traditional products on […]
