Useful, but could be improved.
MultiTrack Stopwatch is definitely a useful app. I used it at the last 24 Hours of Lemons race to keep track of how our team was doing (lap-time-wise) with respect to our closest competitors. While it worked fine for that purpose, there are some obvious improvements that could be made: Obvious Improvement: Allow new timers to be added (and removed) while other timers are running. Currently you cannot add an additional timer without stopping all running timers, which is problematic. This seems like a self-evident issue to me, and I'm wondering if this feature is missing because the application isn't multi-threaded? Nice to Have: It would be great if multiple timers could be operated in a cyclic lap mode. In other words, have a single "lap" button that would be applied to each running timer in round-robin sequence. This would make tracking multiple contestants much easier, especially when they're running close together (currently you have to hunt and make sure you're hitting the correct lap button for each timer). Of course, this would also require the ability to indicate when a given contestant has been passed or lapped, but this is also doable (perhaps by allowing re-ordering of the timer list)... In any event this would be an absolute KILLER feature, and raise this apps functionality to the equivalent of professional timing devices.
Brief praise and Suggestion
The best I have found, but could still be improved. My two cents:
In the chart view, it would be better to show both the lap time and cumulative split for each person. (There would easily be room in the landscape view if not upright.)
Possible additional features:
A count-down lap counter for each runner - e.g., enter at the start how many laps are in the race, and display laps to go (for each) as you hit the split button. It's indoor track season and I can't think of a more helpful feature for a coach of multiple distance runners.
As someone previous mentioned, a relay function would help - start one runner when stopping the one previous, and keep a cumulative time for the entire relay, as well as for each leg.
Even more extravagant - maybe enter target time(s), and have an indication during the race (even if not saved) of whether the competitor is on pace at each split, or ahead/behind pace by how much.
Worth the money, but I would pay even more for these bells and whistles (as long as options could be chosen/deselected intuitively so that said bells and whistles aren't too intrusive).
Great App - Couple of Suggestions
Just purchased this app to begin the spring track & field season. Really like it's design and functionality. Reviewed nearly all stopwatch apps available and this is definitely the best.
But I have to add my "split" and agree that a relay option would be ideal. Given that several T&F events are relays, having this added functionality would make this app 5 stars. There's just no good way to time relays with this current version. Last suggestion would be to allow the results/history to be viewed in landscape mode. With 4+ runners the view in portrait only allows you to see 3 without scrolling.
