HTC Timing is a location tracking / fitness app that helps teams while they compete in the Hood to Coast Relay. When timing yourself, the app will use your GPS location to calculate run/walk distance and pace. If you time one of your teammates, the app will just record the start and end time and calculate an average pace based on the distance of the leg. Using either method to collect the data or by entering in timing data manually on the Team screen, HTC Timing will then provide estimated start and end times for each leg to help the team, captain and drivers coordinate when to be at the next exchange point.
- Fixed bug when granting location access for the first time saying it was denied
- Add elevation maps to Timing leg detail screens
- Added offline data persistence (fixed the ability to stay logged in while offline)
- Added confirmation alert to timing screen when trying to leave the screen (prevents timing data loss)
- Added warnings about missing team start times
- Fixed display of "Invalid Dates"
- Removed volunteers from Team screen list (since they don't have assigned legs / timing data)

Clunky and inefficient
Too clunky to use. A swipe to indicate the transition, finish one runner’s leg, and start the next one’s is all that should be needed. Instead it was something like four clicks to confirm ending one leg and then more to start the next person who by that point had already been out of the exchange for 20 seconds.
We stopped using the timing feature after a few legs and started manually entering the times. Even that was unnecessarily cumbersome. After the first 12 legs we stopped using it entirely and instead used an Excel file we wrote.
The race should go back to the version of the app from 2017 which was very simple and efficient in addition to using Qr codes to share info in areas with no cell signal.
Our old school stopwatch with pen & paper was more reliable
This was our team's 4th Hood to Coast, and this app was the worst we have used.
Initially the event promoted another app for months, and we painstakingly set that up between our 12 teammates. Then the night before the event, HTC rolled out a "new and improved timing app" specific to the event. It was great that it just required a single login to auto-fill all the teammate's information, but that is where my positive feedback ends.
As another reviewer stated, HTC Timing had far too many steps to complete at each handoff. Previous apps had a swipe feature (which ended the previous leg and began the next leg in a single motion), and this was far superior to the multiple taps required for a single handoff in this app.
The syncing between users was also not good. This never worked correctly for us. We would text between vans to compare what the app said after a handoff, and every time, the other van would be one leg off from the van that just had the handoff. Our old-school stopwatch with pen & paper ended up being more reliable for us this year.
Why can’t you assign legs?
Is that done within the app somewhere?
Developer Response ,
Hi there, Legs can only be re-assigned by the team captain if they are logged into the app with those credentials. However, for a Leg to be re-assigned it has to have first been assigned to a team member in the Clubhouse portal at hoodtocoast.com. Unfortunately there is no way to assign a Leg for the first time through the app. Please also check out our FAQ on the Timing app webpage: hoodtocoast.com/app/
