BTW, one major headache is NOT being able to fine tune the delay. The old app had perfect plus/minus fine tuning, this app has a slider which displays the (wait for it) lap nr. It's impossible to sync it with your TV feed....

I've given up. There's a million and one things wrong with the UX. FOM don't care. They are the exclusive provider of live timing.

They keep trying to polish this turd while all they have/had to do was to take the old live timing app and update the graphics to fall in line with their TV graphics and everybody would be happy. Unfortunately they are way too arrogant to do that...

When replaying sessions, I haven't managed to work out how long there is a delay for before the session starts. With the old app it was more or less instant, this one just seems to sit there for an undocumented period of time (like 10 mins) so you have to guess how far to move the slider before the race starts.  :down:

Glad to see others think the same as me. No words for how horrible the live timing app is. And to think I paid for that  :|

 

I kept my old iPad with iOS 9 alive as long as I could because the old version was on there and it could not update to the newest. And it was miles better. But this year it was over. They shut it down. So now the only option is this trainwreck of an app  :down:

It seems like their entire range of digital offerings is being run by people who have absolutely no clue what they're doing
