All the latest and greatest and the what-not and the how-you-doin'.

A few weeks ago our latest update to the iOS version of Track Attack was approved by the Apple App Store.  Here’s what is included on both versions of Track Attack (Original Paid and Lite with In-App Purchase):

1. 100% offline mode

Starting with this version of Track Attack, we are shipping Track Attack with the full track database included in the application.  This means you can download the app, lose data connection immediately and use Track Attack without any issues.  This works well for users who cross international borders or go to race tracks with no data connection.  A lot of times, they are lucky to get a hotspot to download the app but then have no other connection.

This also works for users who have data connection but want to make sure that an incoming call doesn’t disrupt their session so they take the SIM card out.

NOTE: Putting the phone in Airplane mode disables GPS completely.

2. Auto-start

This is one of our most requested features.  It is annoying to have to hit start right before heading on the track, so with Auto-Start, you simply set at which speed you want Track Attack to start lap detection/session timing and recording video and it will go from there.

Once you select the track you are driving, no more buttons to press.  Just hit the designated speed and it will start automatically.  Note, you still have to hit stop at the end of the session.

3. Average Speeds and Distance Traveled

You may have seen the fields for these values in lap-based sessions below and most of the time they had zero values but we got that fixed.  Now you will know the average speed and the distance you traveled in each session to help you dissect your performance and get faster!

4. Bug Fixes

There were a number of areas that we fixed based on feedback and crash logs.  You likely won’t see most of these but they will help the app run faster and smoother.

 

That’s it!  Make sure you have the update and tell your friends about Track Attack for iOS!
