iPPs by Equibase
iPPs by Equibase – A revolutionary new handicapping tool that allows you to “mark-up” and customize daily Thoroughbred and Harness programs from any race track running in North America. You can chose from any of the 40-80 tracks running each day to create your custom “daily publication” that you can view, highlight and make notes on just like if you were handicapping using a pen and paper.
What’s in the iPPs?
Users have the option to select from any of the nine different Past Performance publication formats from all of the country’s racing regions for each upcoming race day. Here are the highlights:
•Equibase Basic PPs - The standard daily past performance publication available on your iPad. The Basic PPs publication offer past performance data in a traditional, easy-to-read format for newcomers and seasoned track-goers alike and include the Equibase Speed Figure and Class Ratings.
•TrackMaster Platinum PPs [3 versions: Standard, Pace and Bias] - Going above and beyond the Traditional PPs, these daily publications also include Power Ratings, Pace Figures, conditional Jockey & Trainer Stats, commentary, 12 running lines, track bias information and much, much, more.
•TrackMaster PPs [2 versions: Condensed and 10 line] - The industry leader in harness programs, TrackMaster provides both of these daily publications that, in addition to standard program information, contain their exclusive Speed and Class Ratings, post position stats, driver and trainer stats and individual horse records.
•TrackMaster Platinum PPs [3 versions: Condensed, 12 Line and 12 Line Extra] - In addition to the above, these high-end daily publications contain Power Ratings, Claim and Trainer change detail, exclusive analysis, a summary cover page and much, much, more.
How can you use the iPPs?
Once you have selected the “edition” you want (today, tomorrow or the day after tomorrow), you chose the track and format you want and your personalized edition is delivered to your iPad. Once delivered to your iPad, you are free to mark up and personalize your programs however you like as you handicap! Denote, circle and mark your program with any of the iPPs special marking options, including a pen, highlighter, notes feature, under liner, or strikethrough functions. You can change the mix of tracks daily if you like while creating your own personalized edition using iPPs.

Ratings and Reviews
OK, but not great
I wrote a review, but it went missing.
Its pretty good as far as past perfs, but the price is higher for the versions beyond BASIC PPs.
There are positives & negatives.
The images are very crisp.
I haven't warmed up to marking up the pp.'s on the iPad yet. I think the toolset next expansion to do that effectively.
Markup is a little awkward & its easy to accidentally markup more than you intended, though better tuned than some pdf markup apps.
Some of those pdf markup apps have more robust tools than this app, at this rev.
Tools are a little basic & seems to lose the pen nib settings, etc from use to use with no saved pref. option evident.
There is no magnifying glass tool, or boxed zoom options to select the specific area you want to see and no real type tool or a real
writing nib by itself. Opacity should be more facile & readily available.
No predefined STAMPS. An unfortunate oversight.
It doesn't allow scratched horses to be hidden like the PC app at this time.
YOU CANNOT PRINT? This is a big deal to me.
I can't seem to get the pdf OUT of the app. It appears to be embedded, though the help implies otherwise, unless its ONLY for the subscription service
& that is not in the help guide anywhere.
Which means I need to run around with my iPad ON all day to see the card, that's a little disconcerting. Needs work, imo.
Best Horse Racing App 2014 wm
Equibase Daily Racing Form you scored. Thank you! The app finally replaces your newspaper. It looks like you will be able to bet from within app. If not, start working on it. The App came out in late 2013 and I bet the future is bright. A reviewer said a better option would be if you could load the DRF .PDF into "Good Reader", I like Good Reader too. I don't see the issue with the app option bar in the upper left of the screen. I like it. You can change the page view from fixed page with swipe or page scroll. You can buy basic Past Performances or two different detailed option. You can buy PP's through the Apple store. Finally DRF.
Fix The Bugs
I bought this app when DRF was out of business due the big East Coast storm. It worked as advertised the first time I used it but now (nov 8) whenever I press the "help" or "?" Screen icon, the application shuts down completely. I called Equibase and they suggested deleting the app and then reloading it. All that did was eliminate the pps that I had previously purchased. I see that others (above) have commented on this bug but when I called, the director of online services acted like he 'd never heard anything about the problem prior to my call. I would advise against using this app or purchasing any pps until this problem is solved. When using a past performance charts in an unfamiliar format, help is needed. You can't get that help from this application, in its present form.
