The simple answer is Use the cloud service. Its the only supported
source for subsurface mobile. It will handle everything for you.

To answer your literal question, Using Subsurface is the sane way of
doing it. Just create a git repo, ex:

mkdir ~/TEST
cd ~/TEST
git init .

and choose save as, and point it to that repo, and add [branch-name] to

If you're bat shit crazy like I am, you can then transplant that repo
into the data folder of your mobile device, and you've loaded your
logbook into your mobile device without the cloud service. It requires a
lot of low level hacking, so its not recommended for anyone else.
