MacRumors notes that the new versions of the official Formula 1 Timing apps have gone live, just in time for the start of the season, with the first race of the year kicking off this weekend in Melbourne, Australia. The full app comes in at a very price $28.99/£19.99, which I know puts a lot of people off, but it does offer exclusive live timing, tyre information, race control messages, live text commentary, and much more. The F1 web site says that the app is designed to complement the TV viewing experience and to keep those who are not able to watch on TV up-to-date with all that is going on during the race, with all the action brought to the app in under two seconds. Thereís also a live Pause facility so that you can replay the action immediately after itís happened, and the app also has a massive database of information about the entire season.
Thereís also a free, lite version of the app available, including features such as F1 news notifications that can be pushed to your home screen, session results, an event counter that counts down the time to the next session and tells you when the session is live, as well as optional notifications to remind you when a session is about to start. A free race calendar is also included, plus a huge information database, with all the latest driver, team and event news.
If youíre looking for a good unofficial alternative to enhance your enjoyment of the F1 season, then F1 2012 Premium does the trick nicely.
