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

This past weekend, we released Track Attack 2.0 for Windows Phone.  Jumping to 2.0 is a big deal and something we’ve wanted to roll out for some time now.  While we have much more work to do, we’re excited about this release and getting the Windows Phone version of Track Attack on par with the iOS and Android versions.

Updated UI – Windows Phone Style

Every single screen has been revamped, updated and cleaned up.  Our goals was to make the UI as clean as possible while still retaining the fact that it is clearly, a Windows Phone app.

 

New, clean and modern!

Record Screen – Video On/Off Toggle

While the windows phone version of Track Attack has had the capability to turn off the video recording, users haven’t been able to simply hit the camera button again and turn it back on.  That’s changed!  :)  It’s a small thing but important.

Record Video Using the Front Facing Camera

Also on the record screen, users now have the ability to switch their video camera used for recording from the rear facing camera (default) to the front-facing camera (if your phone is equipped with a front-facing camera).  This is important for a couple scenarios:

  1. Racers – in some race scenarios, you want to practice your ability to manage traffic or study other competitors who are trying to overtake you.  By using the front facing camera to record video instead of the standard rear-facing camera, you can keep a close eye on what’s going on behind you!
  2. All drivers – look where you want to go and look as far down the track as possible!  Those are some of the fundamental techniques preached by coaches far and wide.  Use the front facing camera and mount the phone in a position where you can study where you are looking.  Are you looking through the apex?  Are you keeping your eyes up?  Are your eyes moving across the track and through corners smoothly?  Now you don’t have to wonder and you’ll have the  lap times to figure out what impact changes in your techniques have had.

 

Bug fixes!

Each build we release, we collect anonymous user data to see how you all are using the app and really, to see when it breaks!  Each release we’ll include several bug fixes to make it perform faster and be more stable.  A lot of these fixes are for one-off situations and take really nerdy explanations, so unless it is one of our known issues, we won’t include much detail about it.
