Build a business case: developing custom apps

Hunt the Shunt

If you can’t manage to get to the track or a telly to watch the race, the F1.com live commentary is also fed to the app. Annoyingly, despite the app first appearing in Android, the iOS version now supports push alerts for session start times, absent here. It’s a feature promised “soon” for the rest of us.

Other information vital for petrolhead paradise includes track and air temperature, wind speed and direction, sector, speed trap and average lap times. There’s also a full race calender, archived results from each round of the F1 championship and the current driver and manufacturer rankings.

Though the app is free, you have to sign up at Formula1.com to use it, but that’s a painless operation. At 3MB it’s not quite as tightly packaged as one of Adrian Newey’s cars and there’s no App2SD support. ®
