Trevor Lacey has created a new app exclusively for the Android market that enables users to coordinate exchanges between multiple vans and track runner stats.
Lacey designed the app when he heard complaints from friends about the difficulty of coordinating vans and figuring out racer stats, combined with being frustrated with the lack of apps available for the Android market.
It seems pretty easy to use, all you have to do is enter the runners’ paces, enter everyone’s cell phone numbers to link up, and press “Go.” If someone wants updates but isn’t able to get the app, enter his or her cell phone number anyway, and he or she will receive text updates.
Once configured, users will have the following information:
* Running time
* Projected leg time remaining
* Running distance
* Elevation changes
* Actual running pace
* Course map with current GPS position
The app allows you to view stats per leg or per runner.
It’s designed for use with the Southern California Ragnar Relay race, taking place from April 15-16.
The best part is that the app is FREE, so try it out! You can download it from the Android Market.
