    Bought it and like it so far. One question, is it possible to add a feature to add a calendar event for the race when you tap on the race time? If the OS allows, of course. Thanks.

    I don't know if that is possible, but I'm working for notifications that gives you a heads up that the race will start in 30 minutes. Also I want to add that after the race you will get a notification that shows who won.

    That could be a good solution, maybe even make the notification time adjustable? Also how about showing the latest news story on the live tile flip side or alternating with the next race tile, that would make it more useful as there's lots of cool stuff in the news that might otherwise be missed. Thanks.

    I need to test the notifications during the next race, but this is what the settings will look like :

    The live tile with news will come in a later version !

    Good job on the latest update & the news notifications work great.

    Just a couple of things I've noticed:

    Would you be able to separate the Race/quali notifications away from the notification that gives the winners name. I want to be notified that the quali/race is about to start but if I'm recording the action then I don't need to know who is on pole position or who has won the race.

    Also a little bug that you may be aware of is when you access the notification settings you can't return to the app as pressing the phones back button eventually exits the app & you then have to kill the app in the task manager otherwise it just returns to the notification settings page.

    Keep up the good work.

    I will separate the result notifications from the notifications before an event, that will be changed later this week. The update for the bug will be available tomorrow. If you have any other suggestions for the notifications feel free to let me know ! :D

    Thanks the bug fix update works great.

    Just one further thing on the notifications. Would it be possible to add a quick status icon that shows up in the lock screen/glance screen like what shows when you get a missed call or email.

    With a counter of the news items? I think I can add that, should I add it to the live tile too?

    Sounds like the app is shaping up nicely. Having a problem on my Surface 3 though, my live tile stopped working. Initially it was working when set as a wide tile then I decided to try the large size and the tile wasn't updating so I took it back to wide but the tile is still not updating. Tried an uninstall and reinstall with reboot and still doesn't work. This was a few days ago now. Any help you can offer? All my other live tiles work fine. Thanks.

    I will look into that. Also I will add drivers info to the Windows version and some other improvements.

    Btw does the app launch correctly when tapping on a news notification?

    Were probably crashes from navigating back from the notification settings

    Just a few things I've noticed on the notifications:

    1, I am unable to save the selection in the drop down box for the Race notifications. If I choose "before" in the box & then close the app the selection then resets to "select an item" when re-opening the app.

    2, the qualification notifications - didn't notify me at 30 minutes but did get one at 18 minutes to start of quali.

    3, even though I had selected to only be notified before the event I also got a notification after the event telling me who was on pole position.

    Keep up the good work as it's really coming on nicely.

    Will fix number 1 and 3 in the next update. About number 2, I haven't figured out how I can trigger the background agent, which sends the notification, at certain times. Now it triggers every 30 minutes and checks if the qualification or race starts in less then 30 minutes. If so then it gives you the remaining minutes. But I will try to change it!
