H1 2016 Mobile App

For 2016, H1 Unlimited will connect with our fans and partners in a way we have never attempted: via a FREE web app that will allow us to supply more information quicker than ever before directly to your mobile device. We plan on publishing race results, video links, photos, schedule changes and other timely info that will impact your enjoyment of our events, involving you more immediately in the excitement that is H1 Unlimited.

In addition, the app will be EXTREMELY simple to share with friends, family, co-workers or anyone that you’d like to share your love of with H1 Unlimited racing with! When you hit the “SHARE” button, you’ll be able to send the app using any method your mobile device allows, such as text message, email or even QR code! Make sure you share the app as much as possible to get everyone involved!

The H1 2016 app will work on Apple or Android phones and tablets and is free to download and to use. It will be updated in real time from each race site so you will have race results within minutes of the end of each heat. When we get spectacular video from our onboard cameras, we’ll post clips right away. If our schedule changes, you’ll know it as soon as we do.

At right is a fully functional version of the app, with the same operation you will get on your mobile device. All of the links are active, but phone & text links work best on your mobile device.

Using the App:

The H1 Unlimited app is designed to be easy to use, to provide as much background material as possible about our sport, and most of all, provide timely information such as news, video clips, heat finishes, points totals and schedule changes. Please note that the layout of the app may change from the off-season layout to a different layout once we start racing – some sections may change locations or be deleted, and other sections may be added.

Every time you open the app, it will sync with the server, insuring you have up-to-date information. During the course of the race weekend, you should make a point of syncing it on a regular basis to make sure you get the latest news, results, videos and other information as it’s being updated.

Here’s what the app has to offer and how to move around in it:

The app is similar to any app you are currently using, with the same locations and controls, but there is a lot of information lurking behind this simple interface! Here are the parts of our app and what you can expect to do and see in each section:

Highlights:
