We have been working hard on giving race directors and timers the ability to post results and give runners the ability to see their results. We are starting to enter Beta with this, and have a number of features coming such as easy posting of Race Director and RunScore result file, nice looking results display, and an Open API to make it easy for others to integrate with our system.
Today we were having a little hack session and trying out a new Mobile App we have created for the iPhone to do simple timing of an event. Think stopwatch, collecting bib numbers and posting them – except everything is done with an iPhone! We will be testing this live next Tuesday at a race here in South Jersey. If all goes well we will be releasing the application and code (in open source!) shortly afterwards. Exciting stuff!

We did a full beta test on August 21 at the No Frills Race. We found a bunch of bugs, which is what a beta test is for. But it really did work! It was awesome to be click on the iPhone and iPad and seeing results go live at https://runsignup.com/beta/nofrills.
