MAJOR UPGRADE - WEBSCORER PRO 2.0

WEBSCORER PRO = MANUAL TIMING & AUTOMATED TIMING

Until now, Webscorer PRO has been purely a manual-timing product - you'd tap the screen to record a time & identify the racer.  The 2.0 release adds support for automated timing where the time stamp (and racer ID) is obtained automatically from a timing chip or from a start gate or photocell, freeing the app operator to focus on just monitoring the timing & correcting errors.  

The 2.0 release is available now from the Apple App Store, Google Play and Amazon AppStore.

HERE”S WHAT’S NEW IN 2.0:

Fully automated RFID chip-timing
- Support for Orbiter Inc. RFID readers
- The app receives the time stamp & chip ID from the reader via WiFi
- With Chip ID programmed as the bib number, you can use manual timing start lists
- You can easily mix manual timing for racers whose chips did not read
- Additional chip types & readers coming soon

Fully automated NFC chip-timing
- Support for programmable NFC chips with your Android device acting as the chip reader
- The app receives the time stamp & chip ID automatically when the NFC chip is detected
- With the chip ID programmed as the bib number, you can use standard start lists
- You can switch to manual timing for racers whose chips did not read
