    I'm a big BB and F1 fan and for a long time I tried to mix both worlds, legally but w/o paying the heavy bucks of the official app every year.
    So investigating the Live Timing protocols, I found a developer (Mariusz) that implemented a free app for Live Timing in multiple platforms (mobile and desktop which is amazing).

    Formula1 Live Timing -F1LT-snapshot7.png

    I asked him to repackage his Android app, I helped testing it in Z10, Q10 and PlayBook formats, and he posted the signed and converted bars at his site F1LT for BB

    As he has a QT version for Nokia, I asked him to try producing a native version for BB10 but it was a little bit slugish when we tested it (he said that maybe it was a matter of the ported Nokia elements -buttons, lists- that didn't work well in BB10 platform), but he may revisit the subject once the new QT5.x platform with iOS/Android/BB10 support ships and he may develop a new common base code for mobiles. Any QT/BB10 dev around with knowledge, feel free to contact (Mariusz) and help him out.

    Enjoy this free F1 Live Timing app in the upcoming races! (and don't forget to send the developer a thank you email )

    Thanks Wolf, this is a great app! I'm enjoying it right now. You should ask him to put it in BlackBerry World for the Z10 and PlayBook. This would allow more people to use it...

    I suggested the same as Mariusz already has dev keys, but feel free to send him a thank you email and suggest BBworld publishing as well (the android app is published at GooglePlay anyways).

    F1LT 1.4.0 for Android and BB10/PlayBook released.
    New feature is introduced - playing old live timing sessions. Very useful tool when watching a replay of the race, quali or free practice. Session files are stored on a remote server. To get access to it select "Play session" from menu or startup screen. Application uses the same database as the desktop one, although only this years sessions are available. There are also new track maps for India and Abu Dhabi.

    The author told me his app was banned from gplay and received a "suggested" to avoid distributing the app.
    Anyways, the F1 live timing protocol changed an all free apps are limited in what the information to show (very basic live timing only).
    Google for f1lt-lite and you'll get this season compatible app.

    Yeah I figured as much because every trace of it was removed from searches, but thanks I shall google for the latest bar version you suggest.

    Posted via CB10

    Edit, no luck with that search either. I'll just keep using the older version. Hopefully someone uploads their version to Box or something.
    Shame, this was one of the best timing apps out.
