BAA2014


The Boston Marathon mobile app returns in 2014 to help runners and spectators at the Boston Marathon maximize their handheld Patriots' Day experience.

The BAA2014 app will allow spectators to track up to ten runners in the April 21st race, and select for which checkpoints (10K, Half, 30K, Finish) they would like real-time updates of these runners. Spectators will also be able to search for runners by bib number or by name, view a real-time race leaderboard, and search for results after the race.

The app allows runners to easily view key race information, tour the race course via Maps, and easily share their race experience with the Boston Marathon on social media before or after the race.

Good app but... This app does track the runners but with technology the way it is today there has GOT to be a a better way to show more data! I mean this app only shows 4 times but if I want to cheer on a friend I have to estimate their pace, then calculate when they will be near my checkpoint. Every kilometer, or at least every other would have been nice to have available. In addition, I don't think the app would display the date for more than one runner at a time.

No problems finding the app, I just searched 'Boston marathon' and it was the 1st result. Easy to search for runners; hit the star to add to your favorites. Only able to save 10 runners on your list though. No one should write a review pre-race day complaining of lack of info. Wave starts are at 10, 10:25, 11, and 11:25am EST. List updated as my friends passed the 5k, 10k, etc. points. I received alerts when they hit 10k, half mar checkpoints & finish. Great app for tracking friends from across the country.

Slow Every time the app opens takes 30s to load even from a notification. Info and new news just take you to the website so defeats the purpose of the app. BAA should do better than that.

Slow. For little information this app provides, its huge and slow. Capability to track runners very limited, alerts sporadic, delayed and unreliable. Try better in 2015...

No Status Report This app did not give the status of a friend ever though it says it will and did not recognize her bib number. Uninstalled--waste of time and space.
