Official Formula One Apps Launch Ahead of 2012 Season

by

Formula One's official timing apps have launched just ahead of the first race of the 2012 season, taking place this weekend in Australia.

The full-priced app, F1 2012 Timing App CP, written by Formula One partner Soft Pauer, offers live timing, tire data, race control messages, track positioning and more in real-time for the entire Grand Prix weekend, across Practice, Qualifying and the race itself.

The app is $28.99 in the US, £19.99 in the UK. It does not include any live audio or video race feeds.


The free "lite" version skips the live timing and other real-time features in favor of news feeds from Formula One.com, session results, a race calendar, and event countdowns and notifications when a session or race begins.

The lite version of the F1 2012 Timing App is free on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]

The live timing-equipped F1 2012 Timing App CP is available for $28.99. [Direct Link]

Talk about a rip-off, but I guess F1 fans are used to paying too much for things.

Word of advice. If you live in the UK DO NOT BUT THIS APP. The same info is available freely on BBC's driver tracker - it runs as an mp4 stream and works fine with iOS devices.

If you own last years app you can tweak a few config files and it'll load this years data into it and work ;)

Even outside the UK you can hop onto the official f1 site and view the same info for free.

Simply let me watch the 2012 races either live or on demand, and I will buy the app and subscription. Make them an in app purchase for the free model, it's found money for Bernie.....

Even if you could simply offer the races as a tv show on iTunes the next day or two, would be better than nothing.

Since F1 won't allow that, because I am a cable cord cutter, I will simply have to torrent the racing broadcasts again this year to watch F1.

(Indycar/CART use to have an on demand/previous races available to watch later service, but they dropped the service the last couple of years. Boo....)

The app is cool, and I get up and watch every quali and race session live, but I'm not paying $30 for this. I'll just continue to use the live timing on their F1's website for free. Add a live feed and I'd pay $100 per season no problem.
