With the explosion of iPhone popularity has come an avalanche of “apps” to help people do everything from ordering takeout to finding the nearest place to get their dog groomed. Now a free application called Meet Mobile, designed by The Active Network, will change how fans of swimming can follow their favorite sport.
Lehman Athletics and the APEX Center will use the app in conjunction with swimming and diving meets held at the College, including the upcoming CUNYAC Championships from February 2-4.
The app will display meet results in real time as Meet Manager (used by those running the meet to keep track of event times) receives data from the electronic timing system in place. The results will then be streamed live as long as an Internet connection is available. The free Meet Mobile app, which can be downloaded for the iPhone, iPad, or iTouch, can display the results of each of the event swimmers.
Next time you’re at the APEX enjoying a meet, there’s no need to wait for the results to be posted; you can check them yourself at any time. To download Meet Mobile, visit the Apple APP Store (www.apple.com).
