    This app uses the accelerometer on your phone to act as a lap timer.

    It records laps and final race stats to use with RC cars. I haven't used it on other courses but just use your imagination.

    The way I tested it was to put it over a soft car board that is a ramp on my track representing the start line. When the car crosses the finish line it records the lap time.

    Have fun!!

    There is now available a version for iPhone/iPad on the app store. For now it is somewhat different as it doesn't use the accelerometer to count laps. Instead the user counts laps using buttons but it is possible to time 4 racers at the same time.

    I put a half inch thick board across my backyard dirt track with some sticking beyond the track...where I put the phone. It registered each pass of my 10th scale buggy. Makes it so me and friends can complete for best times.

    I pegged a metal strap across our 4m wide track and bent it up the side and across for a platform for my phone. After experimenting with the sensitivity settings it works fantastic. Much easier than anything else I tried. The metal strap transmits the vibration better than an extension cord. Awesome and accurate. I filmed the races as well and compared the time accuracy with computer editing softw

    I use it set on a board that i run over at my backyard track with default sensitivity when im alone. I turn down the sensitivity and have it in my pocket and stomp my foot softly when im on track with other people. I would like to be able to export the sessions and copy and paste them into a spreadsheet. Also i would like to be able to delete multiple laps at once.

    Perfect for practice bash days at the track. Sit the phone on a box at your feet and give it a wee kick as the car passes to mark the laps. Even gives fastest laps and avarage lap Times.

    For those who have a track but no proper lap timing equipment get this app it is perfect. I simply stretched an extension cord across my track and set my phone on it and it works perfectly. The sensitivity is surprising. Thanks a lot for this app!
