For the first time, the Boston Athletic Association has created a mobile app to help runners and spectators at the 2013 Boston Marathon maximize their handheld Patriots' Day experience.

The BAAMarathon app will allow spectators to track up to ten runners in the April 15th race, and select for which checkpoints (10K, Half, 30K, Finish) they would like real-time updates of these runners. Spectators will also be able to search for runners by bib number or by name, view a real-time race leaderboard, and search for results after the race.

The app allows runners to easily view key race information, tour the race course via Maps, and easily share their race experience with the Boston Marathon on social media before or after the race.

All consumers who download the free app will be able to link to the B.A.A. YouTube channel and photo galleries, learn about the world-class athletes in the John Hancock Elite Athlete Program, and peruse the rich history of the Boston Marathon for past champions, course records, and race synopses from 117 years of Boston Marathon history.

    I found that the app did not work. It was difficult to add runners and track them. The app looks nice seems user friendly but difficult to use. Looking forward to next marathon and updated app

    This app needs more testing. Adding runners to track was confusng and time consuming. App got stuck and the 'taps' didn't work. Well intentioned. Race day, though, the tracking worked well and that was my main hope.

    Entirely not user-friendly. I could find the person I wanted to track but from that point on it was useless. Very disappointed. Twitter kept me more abreast than this crappy app.

    I down loaded to try to get info on some friends running. Was able to find them by name, but unable to locate them on the course... very disappointed... would've thought that Boston would have a first rate app like the Houston Marathon...
