RaceTab 3.92 Release Notes

Released March 21, 2015

Download Link

This is is just a small bug fix release for a few bugs reported in in our beta release of 3.91 (which was never pushed to all users). Fixes:

  • When clicking to seed a field event, it properly defaulted to "Position" instead of "Lane" but still had a limit of 10 for the number of positions. Changing it to lane and then back to position fixed…

App of Apps

I have a plan... I think. Rather than making all of these standalone apps, why not have an app of apps. I'm not 100% sure this will be the best course of action in the long term but it sure seems more convinient at the moment!

So on your Android phone, you can fire up Chrome and go here:


Then click the vertical ... menu button in the top right. And choose "Add to…

Release 3.84

I am hoping 3.84 fixes the XC issues that some have been having. The two primary issues I've seen seem at least somewhat related: scrambling of bib #s and "mysterious" increment of places from hidden entries.

Both of these stem from earlier or imported entries into the race from other heats. Obviously there are no heats/rounds in cross country, but we were carrying over a lot of code from track in generating those reports. If everyone was round=1 and heat=1 like they should be in XC…

Released 3.81

Bug Fixes

  • If an event name was all lower case, it could cause issues with tie breakers... "high jump" instead of "High Jump" as event name was looking for second best instead of # of misses, for example. Hopefully people do capitalize the event names though because otherwise it just looks ugly.
  • Set button…

New App: Bib Number Collector

I just got an idea for a new app tonight. It doesn't have a name yet, and it's not done yet... but I made good progress on night #1.

Here is the idea....

For cross country or road races without chips, usually you have a chute and tear-off tabs on the bib #. You have someone at the back of the chute tearing them off and putting them on the spindle. Then after the race, you bring the spindle(s) over to the computer and someone scans the barcodes or manually types them…

IPICO Timing with Splits

We have basic (but solid) support live IPICO reading from mats. We currently only support start and finish. I am working on better support and doing splits and live scoring with them. I want to share my implementation plan here for public comment.


You will define a given number of split points. Essentially, at every point you want to read every race you will have a split point.

For each split point you will define a name (just for identification), event…

RaceTab 3.74 - May 9, 2013

Release Notes for RaceTab 3.74

Released May 9, 2013

Bug Fixes

  • Hytek Export to semi-colon delimited for advancers: If you had timed finals (multiple sections of finals) and wanted to export only the top four finishers, it was using the heat place.... instead it should have been doing a full results evaluation to determine the overall place. We are now doing this, so if you choose top four to advance to the chamionship meet (for example) it will do the four best…
