Android application

This is a link to android application. Open this link on your phone/tablet and install apk. You can test it without altimeter. Enter your name and manually enter launch height in meters and click "Share On Web" button. If you have GPS enabled and have good signal you'll see your coordinates.

Please do not spam or abuse it. Share only your real launch height records. I trust you!

Why is it necessary to have a phone to do this? The good old internet should work for this.

I think the phone is the display for the tiny altimeter that Bray is proposing. And is a quick way to dump your results to the "contest" website. Certainly with a different altimeter you could manually submit your results.

I'm less interested in the website aspect of this, than I am in having a featherweight altimeter and a pocket display of my launch height and rx battery voltage

What is the price range we're looking at here?

I also have a form to post results (first only for testing) with browser but have to check few things and then i will put it online. But...if you have a smart phone which can display your data why not use it to post numbers automatically? Hey, we have technology, let's use it!
