We have released the Results Kiosk App on the Web. There are also versions available in the Apple and Android stores. Make sure to watch for updates and download them.
This is a multi-platform App – meaning it runs as a native Apple, Android or Web application (http://results.runsignup.com). So you can mix and match Tablets and Chromebooks and Netbooks as well as cell phones. It is designed to work very well with Touch Screens.
The app also does local storage for fast searches. It also does incremental updates during a race whenever there is new data and there is an Internet connection.
The user interface is responsive – so adapts to the size of the screen you are displaying on. It also adjusts to how much data is available in results. A full example is below:
Searching is simple and works by bib or name. Partial completion works well – so searching for “31” will bring up bib 3177, 3121, etc.
Clicking on an individual shows details:
There are several configuration options:
Kiosk – This locks the application on a specific race with specific display options. Simply edit a code like “123” and click the Kiosk button to enter into Kiosk mode and reenter the code to exit.
Display View – We give you three options. Large is the default as shown above. List provides a simplified view of the data:
You can also go “old school” and do Plain:
As shown at the right, most of these options are pretty self-explanatory. You should experiment before putting out your kiosks with your data to make sure it is set up the way you want. Then lock in Kiosk Mode and you are good to go.
We are looking for feedback on this app and how we can improve it in the future. Feel free to send suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More strategically, the architecture for how we built this app will be used for new versions of the Check-In App as well as a Registration Kiosk with Swipe. We now have a way to create these applications quickly to deploy as native apps. The ability to have data sync in the background when there is available Internet is also very powerful.
