Pro Starter is for athletes who want to practice race starts while training.
If you are training alone or each athlete wants to start at the same time, Pro Starter will be your starter. Place it on the start line and press Start. Pro Starter will call out clear commands of a normal athletic Start Sequence.
The start sequence is: “On Your Marks”, “Set”, and Pistol fire.
You control the timed gaps between the commands using the stretch ribbon control in the middle of the screen.
Under “Settings” you can also enable “Gun Variance”. This will vary the time between “Set” and the pistol fire. The variance will help you practice for races when starters are inconsistent at competitions.
Also under "Settings", you can turn on the Flash. The phones Flash/Torch will turn on during the starting sequence and on GO! it will turn off. A coach or timekeeper can then see how you reacted and time from the finish line.
In this release, we now use your phones flash to show when your starting. The flash turns off on GO! Great for people timing block starts from the finish line.
Ratings and Reviews
Great app for track coaches
Used this for the first time, I have tried other starter gun apps and this is by far the best one out there. I would have
given it five stars if when you have the gun person and the starter person using two different devices that the starter person could also hear it at the same time. Just so I could have other people timing different lanes I was only able to get the winning person's time
Needs as update
Put a repeat on it to keep workouts rolling
Audio does not work
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
