The most advanced sports timer in the AppStore!
Featured by Apple in the TV-ad "Strength".

SprintTimer is a unique sports timer and photo finish app that employs the same techniques as the fully automatic timing equipment (FAT) used at the Olympics. Start the timer and point the camera towards the finish line. The app creates an image where you can scroll to get the time for each competitor with a 0.01 s accuracy*. SprintTimer also includes a motion/human-activated Video Finish for longer races and a Start Sender for wirelessly controlling SprintTimer from another device.

SprintTimer is used by coaches, teachers, and athletes all over the world for practice and competition in, for example, track & field, cycling, skiing, speed skating, car racing, rowing, kayaking, horses or greyhound racing.

SprintTimer has several advantages over a manual stopwatch:
- One person can time all participants
- Higher accuracy*
- Easier to determine the order
- The image and the results can be saved
- Can operate "hands-free" when started
- The timer can be started manually, with a sound, or remotely from another device

Super app

This is a fantastic app. To start, it is at times hard to figure out but once some of its nuances have been noted, it is brilliant.

There are a few improvements and these are mainly to the user interface. I have used in on an iPad and I see know reason why the app should only work in portrait mode.

The saving of files and photos also take some getting use to. The use of time stamp to name files is great but an edit option so that one can give an event an familiar name would be better particularly if you are using it for a number of races in quick succession. Using the time stamp to differentiate races becomes hard work.

On balance a great app and worth the price.

Subscription trap as usual

Was a great app but like many apps these days the recent updates have removed the best feature from the basic app and you now have to pay a yearly subscription for it (the feature I’m talking about is the marking of races). It’s not as if the app was free, I paid to download it in the first place - now it seems I have to keep paying money to use it.

I had been considering upgrading to the pro version for some of the advanced features anyway, but not now because I think this is a poor tactic to boost revenue. I’m a PE teacher and go to a lot of network meetings where we recommend useful resources to each other. This is one I would have happily shown to quite a few other schools - you’ve lost some free advertising.

Developer Response ,

The results database was completely rebuilt in v. 14.7 and the markings are now closely connected to the database and are therefore no longer available without the results manager. The image with timelines can still be saved with the basic version.

The app store doesn't allow for paid upgrades (which I would have preferred) so a subscription model is the only option.

Good app but some bugs

App works well for the most part but two bugs I noticed within 10 mins of downloading the app: auto finish with video mode crashes the app when you start the timer, trying to save a (5 second) video with all frames (rather than just marked frames) hangs indefinitely on Saving video.
Would be nice to have these features work for an app that is £5 then another £18 to use it properly, would be 5 star if not for bugs.
