RaceCapture App 1.10.2 release

Over 50 improvements and fixes!

Improved Performance and Touch Responsiveness

By far, this is the biggest change we made based on your feedback: performance and touch responsiveness are significantly improved throughout the app! Selecting items, scrolling through lists, pressing buttons, and general responsiveness is now a pleasant experience.  We owe this improvement to a new version of the Kivy framework used by the RaceCapture App, first rolled out in the beta 1.10.0 RaceCapture app and verified by our diligent beta testers. Thank you for pushing all the buttons on the app and your priceless feedback!

Improved App Startup Time

We’re thrilled to report that app launch times are faster – in some cases by 2x!  Check it out for yourself on repeated launches (Note, the first launch after install is a bit slower due to unpacking of files)
