Hi,

Thought I start a number of polls to better understand how LapTimer is populated.
Thanks a lot for your feedback!

[Sorry, just destroyed the poll as I added an option - which in turn reset everything to zero. The missing items (I try to restore) were 4+4+2+1+7+0+0+1]

I was simply searching for a good G-forces meter, and found LapTimer on iTunes by chance!

I now use it for many other things, including recording my first attempts on the Nurburgring to understand where to improve! Note I only recorded the data and not video, since I was told it is forbidden, despite the numerous youtube clips...

Hi Harry,

I voted Recommended by a professional (e.g. on driven instructor) as that’s who recommended it to me. I have since recommended it to two other instructors at a private track day and at least a dozen others at the track that have all since purchased the app.

Looking forward to v15 and future updates.

Interesting question. I've had the Laptimer pro for about a year now. After seeing a professional data logger in action I began I had an inspirational thought that hey maybe the iPhone with built in gps and accelerometers could do the same thing!

I can tell you that as of a year ago it took me many google searches and apple store searches before I stumbled upon the Laptimer app. I wasn't searching for a "lap timer" I was searching for a "data logger" though so maybe keep that in mind on keywords used in the future.

I used before Race Timer on a PDA. After switching to iPhone I searched for something similar aund found laptimer. It was mentioned often in the Touristenforum.
