The new Paragliding World Cup App (for Android and iPhone - smartphones and tablets)

The App is designed to work on smartphones and tablets and will work on Android and iPhone (iOs) operating systems, it combines live access to the commentary, live leaderboard, live mapping and also previous results - all in one place and in an easy to use mobile format.

In the past the various maps available and other data (such as the Live Leaderboard) have all had separate timing delays meaning that the data shown on the leaderboard would be quite dis-similar to what was being dispayed an any maps being used. For the first time the App will bring all of this data together in a synchronised manner.

The App starts up with a simple welcome screen

Welcome Screen

From here you can choose whether you want to check out the Live happenings or any previous or future info. Live Action will take you into into the current task (assuming, by then, it has been set) and will show you the Commentary, Live Mapping and Live Leaderboard views

These views are responsive and, if you rotate your device, they will resize to use the different screen space available. Swapping between views is a simple as selecting the required screen from the buttons at the bottom. After the task is finished the final results will be available from the home screen so its all there for you as soon as anything is published.

Live Action (Commentary, Leaderboard and Tracking), Latest Task (results and commentary for the last task scored), Latest Overalls (results in the comp so far) and 2017 Results (task by task results for all the World Cups so far this year).

Press the ‘Follow’ button to see their position (centred) on the live tracking with a larger icon. Otherwise you can go straight to Tracking via the menu. The Start cylinder is also now easier to spot – a red circle.
