    Was just wondering if anyone had tried to use this on either of the friday practices and if it worked. It doesn't on theipad and I'm quite hopeful that it will on the touchpad

    i think it requires java. At least it did..

    Formula 1

    Yeah I think it is java still. Is that going to be a problem, was under the impression that WebOS was built heavily on Java

    Edit: should add that live timing actually only works when there is a session on, say qaulifying or the race.

    You're right. It was. They removed it entirely on webOS 2.0

    I have emailed Soft Pauer, the developer of the live timing app on iOS and Android, hoping they will support webOS too.

    If more people were to email them too at enquiries@softpauer.com i'm sure they will eventually get the message, and develop for webOS too

    I got an email back quickly, shown below

    Dear Karl,

    We're looking at WebOS. Currently it does not have a big user base,
    and as we're an ongoing service, every platform we support is a long
    term investment - its not just a case of port once and forget about
    it. Every platform must be maintained, fixed and updated. However
    WebOS does tick the technical requirements better than, say, Windows
    Mobile 7 or Blackberry. So we're watching to see if WebOS can gain a
    big enough market for Apps to justify the costs. However HP have just
    apparently contacted us, so who knows?

    Best regards,

    Alex


    so they seem interested, but just worried about the small number of users, perhaps if enough emailed them, they would make it sooner rather than later.

    But with HP contacting them, i hope they bring it really soon, and i hope HP are contacting many other developers about bringing more high quality apps to webOS

    I do wonder why we have flash and html but java is missing. I have emailed but I have high hopes if HP itself has a dialogue open with them, that carries a lot of weight with it I think.

    Also, cant test this as I dont have a touchpad yet but Speed has its own version which I THINK is flash based. SPEED Formula 1 RaceCast can anyone pull up that link with their touchpad? might be an alternative until we have an official app.

    Spoiler warning: only look at that page if you want to know the results of the grand prix

    edit: response to my emailWebOS is definitely on the radar, but as yet we're uncertain about the
    market. When we commit to a platform it takes a good deal of long term
    investment. However WebOS hardware is suitable, so who knows what the
    future will hold?

    Best regards,

    Alex


    does sound midly promising

    Yes. The SPEED version is flash and works fairly well. A little hard to use the scroller though.

    Seems to work on a Pre2 too. Definitely hard to use the scroller. Haven't seen what the live feed is like yet. Will find out this weekend.

    Shame no Official F1 app.
    Also shame no Java on webOS!!

    If they did it in HTML 5, there wouldn't be a problem.

    Sorry for the bump, but I'm sure F1 fans won't mind. Here is a fantastic unofficial timing site that should work on webOS.

    Unofficial Formula 1 Live Timing

    This website takes the official live timing information from formula1.com and renders it in your browser without the need for Java or a mobile app download. This means your browser needs to be a modern version and support, amongst other functionality, the HTML5 Canvas element and AJAX technologies.
    I no longer have my TP so I can't test, but I have a Pre 3 incoming so I hope it's all good. If you're a reddit user, send your thanks to Kloopy.

    I wasn't awake @ 4 am local but I tried it just now and can see data. I'll have to wait until the next 8am race to see it work live.

    Sounds like it will be fine, thanks for the reply. When it's live, don't forget to try out some of the options with the following keys:

    I like the SpeedTV coverage. It works on my pre3 and my touchpad.

    Reminder for anyone who is awake: Quali is about to start if you want to test the live timing.
