HangTimer: New iPhone App Sets Bar Higher Than You Can Jump!

DropZone Corporation, the creator of HangTimer™, today launched a new sports technology application for the iPhone and iPod Touch. HangTimer uses the iPhone’s accelerometer to determine your airtime starting from the moment you leave the ground.  The HangTimer tracks your airtime and keeps a list of your ten best jumps.  In addition to the measuring your air time the HangTimer application also detects your ski resort automatically anywhere in the world and downloads ski reports, lift status and trail maps. Webcam access is also available through HangTimer at select resorts.

With the iPhone 3G, HangTimer offers bonus features using the built-in GPS system that include the detailed speed and location of every jump, a link to Google Maps to plot your hits as well as a record of the top speed at takeoff for every jump.

The HangTimer application can be purchased from the iTunes store online via the HangTimer website at: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=292748877&mt=8

More about HangTimer:

The HangTimer sports technology application for the iPhone and iPod touch is designed to measure users’ air time. Using the iPhone’s accelerometer (similar to technology used by NASA); the HangTimer application determines the split second you become airborne. Other features of the HangTimer application include: a list of the user’s 10 best jumps, automatically locates ski resorts worldwide; and downloads trail maps, lift status, and snow reports. For users with the iPhone 3G, HangTimer has added bonus features which use the built in GPS to find your exact position for every jump and plot it using Google Maps. The GPS also enables the HangTimer application to display the user’s speed as he or she cruises along and how fast they are going when they take flight. All this information is saved for display on a graph that allows them to check out their entire run and see where they caught the biggest air and fastest speed.
