We’ve been busy! Track Attack Beta 4 was released this past weekend and we’re close to the final build. Here’s what’s new:
1. Download history bug fix
Some of our users who have been using the app for some time might be the ones who have changed phones or for some reason wanted to sync their session history from the site to their phones. We had some intermittent bugs with that sync process in the last build and that has been resolved.
2. Adding Google Analytics
Yes, this doesn’t sound very exciting but its really important in our ability to maintain a healthy product and improving on the features people are actually using. We’ve added Google Analytics to ensure we know how the app is being used and when we have bugs so we can react quickly.
3. New Home Screen Tile Icon
You likely saw the new icons on the store with the last build and we’ve received good feedback. While we aim to have a consistent set of features and UI across the three platforms (Android, iOS and Windows Phone), we also want to take advantage of the unique features each platform offers. Tiles and in the future, Live Tiles are a cool part of Windows Phone and we want Track Attack to seamlessly integrate into the platform.
4. Not New but Awesome – Predictive Lap Timer
Predictive lap timer is a feature we’ll be rolling out to Android and iOS versions but we started it all with Windows Phone. The way it works is simple. Within each lap-based session, as you drive, Track Attack keeps track of the fastest lap in that session. As you complete another lap, it will start displaying to you, real time, how much faster or slower you are going compared to that fastest lap at that location (geographic location) on the track. This way, if you feel like you are in a good lap, you can peak over at the app and if you see green, you are going faster. If you see red, you are going slower.
Also, during playback in the app, it shows you those values on the screen as you watch your lap. See the example below:
