XandarMob releases wireless swim timing - Android style

XandarMob has released Wylas Timing ® 1.5.4 and there's lot's to love about this release!

Wylas Timing ® was always going to readily integrate with any touchpad, but it's nice to see that in the pool.

And with 1.5.4 there are some items to make touchpad integration that much smoother.
  • Ability to set a quiet period at the start so that you can start the next race over the top of the swimmers from the previous race while using a touchpad
  • Ability to configure timer to automatically restart for multi lap events
The clock synchronisation was modified to further improve accuracy and reduce the amount of network traffic, which is very important in a wireless timing system. And having devices send stop/start messages even if the Wylas Timekeeper or Starter app has been pushed into the background has improved the reliability.

And to cap it all off, all the Android apps now follow and use the Material Design theme and guidelines. And the Wylas Display app has been sanctioned as a bonafide Android TV app by the Android team.

Then roll out the gear and get swimming!
