Question
Ipod Touch

Is there a timing program for the Ipods?

Jim C was very generous and handed me a palm to use. My old eyes have trouble with the screen but it has given me the bug to use something other than a stopwatch.

Yes there is...RC-Timer Pro. Works really well, volume up starts the round time, volume up toggles flight time (and starts the round timer if its the first throw).

I've been using it on my ipod for a while now. If you have an older ipod (1st or 2nd Gen I think) then you won't be able to use the volume buttons to start/stop the clock, but everything else works.

I really like my Palm Zire 21 as the F3K device. You can still get them (used) for not very much if you are lucky. The software is additional $20 or so, and is well worth the money. The developer released the new version that has new F3K tasks in it (and copy protection).

Other (newer) models of Palms work well too. Some of them require a cradle though for charging. Zire and Zire 21 use a USB cable - very convenient.

I really like RC Timer Pro on my iPad2. Here is what I like best about it. #1 It's F3K specific. You select which event you are flying from the list and it configures itself specifically for timing that event. #2 You can set it to start the window timer 5 seconds in advance. Why is that good? Because all you have to do to start the window timer is click the button when the countdown reaches 5. Now when time comes, you only have to concern yourself with clicking again when your pilot launches. #3 The countdown is audible. You can be looking around while the timer is counting down for your pilot. #4 All you have to do is click the same button over and over again... One click at launch one click at landing, it saves all the flight times and you can fill them in on the sheet after the round is over.

If you like easy, it doesn't get any easier than that.

I'm not sure but I hope so. I ordered an iPhone 5 with the intent of being able to use it. I believe it will.

As far as I know, the app will work exactly the same for ipod touch, iphone, and ipad, with the one exception that I stated in post #3.

Don't grow up. It's highly overrated.
