May I add a few personal opinions, and they are really preferences.

1) The righthand drawer (currently housing the lonesome Edit icon) is 
wide open to use without requiring extra screen estate. In this drawer 
can come many things currently on Desktop, e.g.
a) delete dive
b) remove dive from trip
c) create trip above
And there are several more on the Desktop dive list context menu. All 
these settings or actions are dive-related and would logically belong in 
that drawer and would be fantastic to organise the dive list.

2) There is certainly an option of a button in the right-hand drawer 
that switches the calculated ceiling on or off. For me the calculated 
ceiling has been an indispensable addition to my dc for evaluating a 
particular dive and to plan the following dive. I lug my laptop into the 
field and after each deep or a long dive I use the ceiling to help make 
a decision about the following dive. If one can have this functionality 
on a phone that would make life much easier not having to lug a laptop 
(not that my current DC would be able to download onto Android).

3) Moving between the profile pages of different dives. The system that 
Sebastian proposes is fully implemented in GMail Android and it works 
perfectly. But in Subsurface, on the dive list, the movement between 
dives on the dive list is vertical. It would therefore be more intuitive 
to move vertically among the profile screens of different dives. That 
said, with GMail one moves between emails on the list in a vertical way 
and swipe between the contents of different emails in a horizontal way.

Kind regards,
