RunSignUp Mobile App now in Beta

RunSignUp Mobile AppAs we mentioned earlier, we have released the Beta version of the RunSignUp Mobile App for iPhone and iPad. If you are a developer and interested in this, please read the RSU Mobile Installation Instructions and send us an email for access. The source code for the app is in Github. The public API has been extended as well, mostly for the new Register method.

This iPhone App is NOT for general use. It only connects to the test.runsignup.com server – not the production server. It is meant to help our technology partners and customers develop their own mobile apps. We provide all source code for you to re-use on an unlimited way. It is also a very useful demonstration of the API that allows anyone to create their own mobile app or web app to do registration and other services like race listings and user profile management themselves.

We expect this will be used by a couple of technology partners over the coming months to bring broader solutions to the market. We think that large races and race management companies are looking at creating their own mobile apps and branding them for their races. These apps help with things like finding accommodations, race maps, runner notification, and results. These races can now integrate registration right into their app.

And yes, the sample app has a picture of our own Jordan Desilets from a Steeplechase race from several years ago (before he became a marathoner – wish him luck at Chicago!)
