A smart timer for timing cycling time-trials.
On the Setup tab the user chooses a start interval (typically 1 minute) and enters the total number of riders.
The start interval can also be set to zero, meaning the timer could be used for races where all competitors start together.
There is an option to specify a minimum time (hh:mm). This reduces the number or riders to choose from at the finish line. For example: For a 15 km race with 20 riders, set the minimum time to 12 minutes. At the finish line only those riders who have started, have not finished and have been underway for more than the minimum time will be listed at the finish line. The minimum time should be chosen so that no rider in your race is capable of going below it. If the minimum time is set to 0, all potential riders are listed at the finish line. The minimum time is ignored if the start interval is zero.
On the Start Line tab the clock is started and a count down of the seconds to the next rider's start is shown. The last five seconds are indicated by distinctive tones.
At the Finish Line the user presses a "Record" button to capture a time as the rider crosses the line. Then the rider's start or bib number is entered. The result is then stored. If several riders cross the line in quick succession, the "Record" button can be pressed once for each rider. A queue appears allowing each time to be associated with the correct rider. This means the capture of the times is accurate. Providing the finish line official remembers the two or three riders' numbers, they can be entered afterwards. A spin control displays only those riders who have started and not yet finished. They are listed in ascending order. So the correct number can be quickly found. Once a time is associated with a rider the result can be stored and dismissed. This scheme differs from other timers where the user must enter the rider's number as they approach the line. The queue means that when things get hectic the times can be captured and the riders' numbers entered later.
If the operator pressed "Record" too many times or accidentally, the time can be assigned to rider 0 (zero) and stored.
A Summary tab shows the time-trial results, with the elapsed time and the calculated time (based on the riders' start positions). The results can be saved to a file on the phone or tablet or emailed. The file or email attachment is in CSV (comma separated variables) form and opens as a spread sheet.
The time-trial timer is not yet integrated with a rider database and assumes that the bib number is also the start sequence number.
If "Share" failed to create the necessary directory for the results file, the problem was reported, but the share operation continued and crashed.
The error message now contains the exact path of the directory to be created and the app does not attempt to write the file and share the results.
Note: The app must be able to write to external "Android/data/.."

Works quite well Tried this app twice now, flawless the first time with minute intervals, caused a little confusion last night when we ran at 30 seconds and had 8 riders in quick succession working out which bib belonged to which time stamp. Suspect that with continued use and practice it will get easier. Sharing to Dropbox etc makes it easy to integrate with my spreadsheet. Having coloured dots for bib numbers instead of the drop down list might work better... just a random idea
Unusable Enter number of riders and select start interval, but number pad from selecting rider numbers won't go away and covers the next option on the page. Rider number then resets to 0 forcing you to try and choose again.
Useless Doesn't work. Good idea but after first test it wouldn't work again. Are you going to do anything to make it work properly please. After putting in number of riders then put in 30sec for interval, the number of riders went back to 0. Tried again several times and got to point of inputting time, system just locked and would not accept time. I did get it to work twice and liked results but with such unreliability it is not acceptable. I am using on a Samsung tablet.
Updated review. Works ok if you realize what the Min time is for. Just set it to zero. App doesn't support rider numbers, so you've got to translate, in your head, the bib number to their start number. God help you if the start is run in reverse bib order and you're using this app to try and track intermediate splits on the road.
