LapTimer (Standard,Pro,Trainer) v16.0 available on AppStore

Postby Harry » Mon Aug 06, 2012 10:15 pm

Dear friends of LapTimer,

I just submitted version 16 for both LapTimer Standard and LapTimer Pro to AppStore. In case everything is working fine, it should get available in approximately one week. LapTimer Trainer needs to go through a separate testing and will follow in a few weeks.

As a major update, LapTimer v16 introduces a big number of changes and improvements. Please find the full list of changes below.

Code: Select all

- Major update with changes almost everywhere

- User Interface improvements
   LapTimer can be operated in landscape now (namely added landscape Timer, GPS, and other views)
   Please note: rotation is blocked while driving
   Please note: not all views are available in landscape, so turn back to portrait to get the full functionality
   Generalized recalibration detection when iPhone is rotated
   Tab bar automatically hides if not used, several views use additional space
   Allow manual operation for tab bar hiding
   Added new Video List view to allow easy video maintenance
   Added number of laps by track
   Improved hover and activity views
   'Last Max' Acceleration gadget added, 'Lap #' gadget added
   New, fancy, alert views
   Alerts auto hide after some time in case they are information only
   Added OBD speed to data recording speed diagram view (so you can compare GPS and OBD)

- Video Improvements
   Added a large button to stop video recording
   Moved video links to LapTimer's database
   Much improved video link handling including 'revert to orignal video'
   Full reference handling for videos (last link removed will allow deletion)

- Additional sensor support
   Improved sensor connect / disconnect handling
   Accelerator update rate raised to 30 Hz (by far more responsive), added expert setting to further tweak it
   Made OBD reply recognition more reliable
   Support for multiple replies from car's ECUs
   Added alternative throttle PID support for OBD
   Added gopoint BT1 and gopoint GL1 support
   Enhanced Lap Detail view by sensor information

- Export Format Improvements
   Reworked VBO export (includes better trigger compatibility, interpolates fixes to 10 Hz)
   Enhanced KML export to support lineal acceleration
   Unified standard CSV and overlaying software CSV formats, added both metric and imperial columns
   Additional export scope: export by session
   Track day and session exports work relative to lap selected
   Display number of laps exported effectively
   Added video links to .hlptrl export (allows full restore)
   Store Export Settings between sessions, allow default e-mail for export
   Improved naming scheme for exports

- More vehicle and track types
   Added bicycle support (on top of cars, karts, motorbikes)
   Track set type added, search in Tracks allows selection by track set type

- System improvements
   Significant performance improvement of Lap List
   Redesigned start-up sequence, better messages on migration / data checks
   Several memory optimization
   Option for emergency startup

- Online Racing
   After the fact submission of lap times to Hall of Fame

- More Settings
   Reworked Settings grouping, moved some Expert Settings to Settings
   Added setting to trigger at low speeds

- Others
   Startup sound (turn off sounds to get rid of it)
   Pro upgraded Standard apps mimic the Pro app even more (About View)
   Added a 'Set Reference' button for continuity racing
   Dozens of smaller fixes and UI improvements


I have worked hard on this one, especially on the landscape support. Hope you will like it like I do :-)

I'm probably wasting my time by checking the AppStore every hour.... But I am really looking forward to giving v16 a test run.

Harry, what's the typical turn around time for approval on the App Store? A few days?

Now watch the new version show up in the app store 5 minutes after I post this.... :-P

Actually it is better you wait with overlaying until v16 is available. v16 will store the raw video link when a lap is overlaid so you have a convenient way to switch back using it. Once v15 overlaid a video, the original link needs to be restored manually if needed...

Hi,

I submitted v16.0.1 of LapTimer Trainer in addition - just a few minutes ago. It come with the named feature set announced above - but without landscape support. Landscape support is difficult as all the nice gadgets all LapTimer versions feature do not match the iPad landscape aspect ratio. So I'd need to rework too much currently.

Nevertheless, that should be a big and nice update for Trainer users too - enjoy!
