Boat Timer has been updated to version 20237. This update adds Cloud Services – the ability to synchronise Boat Timer information with a internet-based database.
Using Cloud Services means that the race progress and results can be seen on the Boat Timer web site, bringing real-time race information to competitors and spectators. It also makes it easier for the race team to use a different device for Boat Timer as they can get all the latest race information on to the new device from the cloud.
In the future, Cloud Services will be expanded to allow competitors to sign on to a race from their laptop or mobile device so the race team will see race entries appear in Boat Timer as they are added.
This version also adds lap times to results. There is a new tick box in the Boat Timer results page called “Include Lap Times”. This shows the average lap time for each boat in the app’s results table. When exporting results to CSV or HTML files, all the lap times are added as extra columns to allow more in-depth analysis of lap times.
As always, the Boat Timer app is updated automatically to the new version when you next connect it to the internet.
