Webscorer is an integrated system for organizing timing-sport races. It includes three components: two different iOS timing apps called Webscorer PRO and FAN and an associated website that provides results posting, online race registration and racer interaction services. You'll need iOS v3.1.3 or later. The iPad versions are optimized for the larger screens, and they are planning on Android versions in the future. It can be used by both fans and by the race organizers in any race where timing determines the winner, such as in cycling, skating, motor sports, or running races.
It is dirt simple to use: you start the clock and then tap the screen as you wish to record a time, and then enter the racer's name. When you want to upload the results, you tap a few other buttons and enter the sport information.
The two mobile apps can be used together or separately. The FAN version includes a basic timer, capable of timing a simple mass start race, and posting the results on Webscorer.com, and most likely be used by spectators or for personal timing situations. The PRO version includes a sophisticated timing program, designed to handle just about any type of race from races with interval starts to wave starts to relays, and can be used by coaches or race officials.
The FAN app is free and you can download it here from iTunes. Webscorer PRO is an in-app upgrade from FAN, and costs $75 for the iPhone / iPod touch, and $150 for the iPad. If you want to post results to the Webscorer.com site, that costs an additional $10 per month or $50 per year, although the first three months are free.
The company was founded by several ex-Microsoft developers and executives, including its CEO Vesa Suomalainen, who ran Microsoft's mainframe communications business; Antero Koskinen, a senior Visual Studio designer; Henry Rawas, a developer behind both Windows and communications products and Brad Kirkpatrick, who worked on Windows 95 and other versions.
