  1. It would be nice to see a live timing application since formula1.com livetiming is not working on the iPhone.

  2. Wow! Great stuff! I can’t keep up with all these accolades…

  3. Cool… Now all I need is a couple of hundred bob and 999 more reasons to buy an iPhone!

  4. There was an application like that for Windows Mobile devices too. I wonder who cares really. You can download track info, race results … ehm yeah that’s what regular people use websites for.

    I tried to make my own live timing app for WM. I wanted to be able to get live timing when visiting a race. Unfortunately I never found the time. I hacked the live timing feed and left it at that. I assumed back then that someone else would pick it up, but that’s quite a few years back already.

    1. Hi patrickl, where can i download this app for WM device?

  5. For a few seconds there I thought ‘brilliant’ but just been to the app store and it’s £3.99 – I’m sorry, I don’t care how good it is but that’s just not on!

    Should be free or a nominal 59p before the season at least.

    Websites work brilliant on the iPhone so this app doesn’t fill any purpose…well not £3.99 worth or purpose!

    1. Hey, it’s priced like F1 grandstand tickets. :-)

      Now if it were general admission, I might bite.

    2. Good analogy RaceTripper – I wonder if Bernie gets a cut of the 3.99!

  6. Well, I tried a few F1 apps on my iPhone, some free, some 59p, and they where just rubbish!! Other peoples RSS news feeds put into an app…now that is cheeky.

    So I dug deep and bought this, and I gotta say that you do get what you pay for, it’s loaded with info, stats and great videos. Compared to a magazine for example, I think its an OK price – stop being so stingy!

    1. Stingy!? The cheek! From using the app store, it seems that some big, professional apps such as playstation quality games are 5.99 which is fine because you get a lot for your money.

      3.99 for essentially the same thing you’ll find on many a F1 website is not reasonable at all but hey that’s my opinion!

    You might also be interested in F1 Insider.

    It features live commentary, as well as all practice, qualifying and race results:

    http://www.f1insider.co.uk

    Its the top F1 iPhone App on the AppStore at the moment, and 2nd in the UK Sports chart :)

    1. An officially-sanctioned app was made available on iTunes before the Turkish GP. It’s getting good reviews so far as you can follow the whole race from a helicopter view of the circuit.

  9. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days..
