Works OK on 5 in phone.

Require a few smarts to input the CSV files, and select the defaults but check in, starting and finishing are very simple.

Ah, thanks I'll give that a try, it does mean I'll have to resurrect my Google Play account and also take my 'droid tablet away with me while visiting family this weekend but that's all fine  Thumbs Up

Sorry Brass, maybe it's too late at night but please explain further?

Edit:- Ah "Dedicated Short Range Communications"  Thumbs Up I suspect you haven't understood the situation, We are a very informal 'club' with no membership list, rules, premises or any of the usual accoutrements, just an informal arrangement that we meet on the beach a few weekends a year to race for fun. The 'race team' comprises of whoever is prepared to stand on the beach for a couple of hours to help start the races and record finish times, usually the wives, friends or girlfriends of the sailors. It works very well mostly but reducing the effort required of the 'race team' will make it easier to a/ find one, and b/ get reliable results. 

WRT DSRC, I will be racing and while I could remind the 'race team' to record the correct/exact start time I'm unlikely to have time during the start sequence and after that a reminder may well be fruitless.

My use case is a bit specific though, I need a system that doesn't require the 'RO' to do anything except press the start button and log laps and finish times. I'll be racing so rely on the race team to log laps and finish times accurately, this is by no means assured as they are not sailors so I'm trying to find a completely foolproof method. My home club has a dedicated hardware system which works well but still relies on pen and paper to record sail numbers even though finish times can be stored for review.

I can honestly say it hasn't been a major problem. It is not too hard to change the start time in Timer (otherwise general recalls would be a bit of a trial!).  At the start of the race once you have the race entries there is not much to do til the end of the first lap, so I just change the start time in the app to match the actual start time. The reason I wrote it was a different nightmare, which was lots of boats heading to the finish line and all you had was a clock, a pencil and a piece of paper to record all the finish times. It is one of those things an app is good at - I am not sure I have it right yet, but having used it in a busy handicap race with 30 odd boats I know it can be very useful.
