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

Post by 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

	Full reference handling for videos (last link removed will allow deletion)

	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!
