This is a lap timer app inspired by Gran Turismo, you get live splits as you drive around the lap/along the route with an indication of how far up or down you are versus your fastest lap.
Why did we make a lap timing app?
Like anyone who wants to record their lap times on a trackday, I tried the most popular lap timers on Google Play
Unfortunately having live splits appear on the phone as you drive around the lap (like the lap time in Gran Turismo) seemed difficult to find
We tried Track Addict and RaceChrono but while these lap timer apps looked great, they seemed unnecessarily complicated/unreliable for something as simple as timing a laps
We tried a few different Android GPS lap timers but as it shows in the video, at least in our experience, they either didn’t do what we wanted, were unreliable or both hence our motivation to make our own.
So we came up with our own app, MoviChip Time Trial.
You put in your start point, finish point and at least one split point and that’s it. Once you have a completed you first lap or route, it is stored and every time you start a new lap or route and pass a split point, your time up to that point will be shown on the screen as plus or minus versus the best lap, just like in Gran Turismo.
