I think you might find that is why the iPhone OS is the next platform.

Pity Apple don't ship an emulator so that any Mac user can run iPhone apps (obviously there's one in the SDK, but not everyone has that), like widgets.

It would both make Macs a little bit more attractive, and add extra value to any iPhone apps you buy.

On another note - do they have the rights to publish that info? Ecclestone is famously protective of the F1 moniker and any copyright/IP relating to it. It would be a pain if you bought the app then the rights were revoked and it became worthless. I had a similar problem with a TV schedule app I bought which then lost the feed.. money down the drain.

Exactly why there needs to be some kind of a refund process for apps that get yanked,etc.

I tried this for a race. Useless. Far FAR better to get the facts without the fancy nonsense on top just using the Live Timing on the F1 website.

It's the Official F1 App

I've heard good things about the live GPS tracking, price is a bit steep though
