The Meet Manager software that we use at Newtown Park comes complete with the ability to publish unofficial “live” results to a mobile phone application, as results become available during the meet. The app is called “Track & Field Meet Mobile“. Other centres (Auckland, Christchurch) are already using this mobile app as a means of publishing their track and field results. Here is a link to an example of a live result published on the mobile app.
This application gives you access to all Track and Field Meets around the world where Meet Manager is used to publish live results to a mobile phone app.
The Track & Field Meet Mobile application can be downloaded for free from the Apple or Google Play stores. With the free version you can see general information about the meet, but not the full results. There is a subscription charge of $2.99 per month, or $8.99 per year for each user to enable viewing of all results. The subscription renews automatically, but you can cancel your subscription at any time. The application is easy to install and simple to use. (Note: the fee goes to the producer of the app, not Athletics Wellington).
To find our local results, just search for “Newtown Park”, and identify the meet that is of interest.
Here is a link to a flyer for Track & Field Meet Mobile.
Note 1: the live results for an individual event will typically become available on the mobile phone app within 30-60 minutes of the results sheet for that event being delivered to the results room. (This is generally around the time that results printouts are posted on the window of the Function Room, but may be earlier). Difficulties with results processing can cause significant delays to the publishing of results for some events.
Note 2: The information published to the mobile phone app is the same sort of information that is we usually publish (Event name, date and venue, athlete name, gender, age-grade, event, result).
