Version 2.1 just went live on the app store. Make sure to download the update through the App Store app asap. Even if you are not managing a large enough team yet to benefit from groups, the new, longer athlete codes should be a major benefit. Thanks to those of you that made us aware that both of these extensions are important to you.
Naturally, I have used stopwatch apps extensively on the go in recent years. Doing so, I quickly noticed that a stopwatch app such as mine isn’t the only thing that’s needed to replace an old-school, handheld stopwatch — no matter how good the app is. I really don’t have enough hands to reserve one of them exclusively to hold a smartphone. How am I supposed to take notes or demonstrate something with just one hand? On top, sports timing usually involves walking around in outdoor environments or, as in my case, at a pool. I really don’t want to drop my precious smartphone, let alone right into the pool. What to do?
[German here] This is how Apple kindly alerts you as an app innovator about the public launch of a new version of an app such as the Herotime smart stopwatch. This is certainly not the first time I see this email message. However, it is probably the most exciting one so far. Why?
The following app has been approved and the app status has changed to Ready for Sale:
App Name: Herotime – Smart Multi Stopwatch
App Version Number: 2.0
App Type: iOS
Handheld stopwatches and their stopwatch app counterpart are just one way to time athletes. Its the only way in situations where there is no automatic means to measure times available, because auto-timing is just not feasible. And there are quite a few other reasons. Nevertheless, in competitions and beyond, in many kinds of sports, various timing solutions beyond manual timing by stopwatch exist.
In a new contribution, I am trying to give a first overview what else is out there in terms of sports timing. This may develop into a more complete reference for sports timing as well as some suggestions where to find a sports timing service provider for an event. I look forward to extending this sports timing overview. Check it out, if you like. And if you have a particular question or demand, let me know how I can help you out and point you in the right direction.
