Hello Attackpoint, I've never posted here before but today I had something to share with you. I've made and app that shows live results from the website https://liveresultat.orientering.se
- I found their website cumbersome to use on my phone so I decided to make this app instead. Its free and free of ads, I hope you want to try it out!
Write in the comments here or use the contact form in the app to tell me what you think!
My comment: not many people are going to click on a link from an anonymous poster,
Agree with Gord, and I also think the population is small here that's interested in Swedish orienteering events. Granted there are some, just not many.
It's not only Swedish events, many European clubs are actively using this system! Is it that the links are using a link shortener that is making it seem weird? Also, do any of you know any other websites that track orienteering live results, if so I would be interested in knowing.
Livelox, also Swedish, is the most popular live tracking in America. By most popular I mean about two or three clubs in the country use it.
@ghostops - it is not the look of the links that may be spooking others, but the fact that when hovering over your username, you are really a "ghost", an unknown, not even a country, an age range or anything. Having Hammer post that he likes the App may give everyone a bit more confidence, as he is known in the Attackpoint community :)
Hmmm ... given that ghoslow is Hammer's father, I just figured ghostops is Hammer's grandfather ... no?
Haha. Not sure who the individual is but on app store is listed as Ludvig Larsendahl. I too have had issues with live results being cumbersome and figured I’d have a look and this app appears to be simple and effective.
@andreais I see what you mean, I will add some more info about myself, I was just browsing for international orienteering communities and stumbled upon this site and thought I'd share the app. I'm from Sweden and I've been orienteering for many years, my club is Västerås SOK, if that adds some more context :)
There is a discussion of the same app on Sweden's orienteering forum (http://orienterare.nu/t/2897
), and it certainly looks legit. I will check it out. Thanks for sharing!
