Ok, the update was released on the May 19th @ 8:42 AM PST. That update fixed the freeze problem and everything is good in Starter Pistol World.

I did update the look as well
Functions:
Start with setting your countdown
CountDown - It starts with "On Your Mark" then "Set" and the "Pistol Shot" happens at various times. (3.5 to 1 second)
Uptimer - kicks in automatically (notice the huge button) we also disabled the sleep mode so you can complete a 4 X 4 without having to take your phone out of sleep mode.
Save - Save your time, location and race length with (date-time stamp). (see Starter Pistol Save Time below)

Media Kit for the app is available here...
(media kit contains all screen shot images and the text from the site)

Starter Pistol Changes

Ok we got rejected on the first go around with Apple. The reason was that we used the wrong SDK for the binary upload. We used the 3.2 and apparently that is for an “iPad app”. It doesn’t say that on the documentation but that is what it is. So Apple thought that we submitted an iPad app and as you know from our design it was meant for the iPhone.

The track athlete is supposed to strap an iPhone to their arm or whatever and use this app to practice their starts. That would be pretty hard to do with an iPad.

Anyhow it gave us a chance to fine tune it a little. Here are the new screen shots






We’ve added the necessary stuff to enable the save time component, and we added a number of new race types.
40 yards
30 meters
55 meters
60 meters
100 meters
200 meters
400 meters
800 meters
1500 meters
Mile
3000 meters
5000 meters
10K

Along with the save time component we are incorporating location and date to the saving of the race time. Of course that will all come with the free upgrade.

Starter Pistol iPhone App

iPhone Apps: Starter Pistol



OK we started something new at IP, we are now developing apps for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices.

The Starter Pistol is the first one, look for it soon in the App Store.

Here is a description of the Starter Pistol App:
This app is for the track runner to practice their starts. It features a countdown timer delay to start the "On Your Mark" sequence, the starter pistol sound fires at the end of the countdown sequence. Then a new uptimer kicks in to time the actual run. The " Stop" button on the uptimer is large enough that you really don't have to look at the phone to hit the button. We also set the sleep mode disable to be active on launch. So you can run the timer out without having wake your phone.

This is the countdowntimer screen for the Starter Pistol iPhone App. Starter Pistol iPhone App Timer display and stop timer button.

We are very happy with the way the whole process went.

Check out the Starter Pistol page for more details.
