Dear friends of LapTimer,
I'm preparing the first beta release of LapTimer v19 (iOS) for testing. Most of the functionality listed below is completed already, some items (marked with [tbd]) are incomplete and will evolve during beta testing.
To participate in the beta, this are the requirements:
- When participating, I want you to provide feedback too.
- You need to be an existing LapTimer user - any edition.
- You need an iPhone4S or later, or an iPad running iOS7.1 or later.
Here is the full list, please focus on these items when testing:

I need your email address and any confirmation you are an existing LapTimer user. The later can be done by either using the Contact button available in LapTimer's startup screen (gray button -> Contact), or by forwarding the receipt you have received from Apple after purchase.
Once you have submitted this information to Harry@gps-laptimer.de, please give some time until you get a message from iTunes Store with title "TestFlight: You're invited to test Harry's LapTimer Petrolhead 19.0.0". This mail will include instructions how to install the app using TestFlight.
Looking forward to your feedback!
