You’re at a meet and you want to look up your USMS number or results from a previous meet on your smartphone. Sure, you can use your phone’s browser and search the net but there are faster ways…
SwimPhone is a great website to bookmark on your mobile device or even your desktop/laptop computer. It is USMS-friendly, too.
You can look up meet results for a variety of USMS meets. For example, here is the information for Colonize Zone SCY championships, including events, meet roster, and results. Results for individual swimmer/races are displayed in a nicely formatted table with splits by, for example, 50s and 100s.
There is more: a special section for USMS tools. You can register, look up your membership number, or change your contact information.
Another USMS-friendly app is LiveResults by Big Fish Software, available in both iPhone and Android versions. This is essentially a way to “save” Meet Manager “live” results and display them nicely on your screen. So, for example, you can add results from 2010 SCY nationals so that you can look them up at a meet. Very nice.
