Official Formula 1 App available for Windows 10 (Mobile)

11

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update is on its way and the operating system still keeps growing. Over 300 Million devices are currently equipped with Windows 10, Mobile, Tablets and PC’s. With the Anniversary Update the free upgrade for Windows 10 comes to an end as well so be sure to upgrade before that date. With Windows 10 you will then be able to use a lot of new features and one of those is the universal app platform.

Universal Windows apps are apps which can be installed and used on all devices running Windows 10, no matter whether it is on a Tablet a Phone, HoloLens or your PC. There have been a fee blockbuster releases in the past few weeks like for example the Instagram app or the Facebook Messenger. With the universal Formula 1 app released today there is another blockbuster in the Windows app store which can be used on all Windows 10 devices.

The app can be found in the Windows store and brings a huge list of features. You can have a look at all the track info for the upcoming race, you are getting info on the drivers, weather conditions, live info on practice, qualifying and race sessions and a lot more. There are a few optional features as well which can be accessed if you are a Formula 1 Access member. Have a look at the screenshots below for a first impression of the app.

If you want to try the new Formula 1 app, be sure to have either a WiFi connection or plenty of data left on your data plan since the app has an approximate size of 165.66 MB. Overall the app feels very good already, though it can happen that there appears a lag from time to time. I expect this to be fixed with upcoming updates for the app. If you swipe up to display or hide the on-screen buttons of your Windows device the screen will display the app background for a second and will then display the regular content again. This is most likely a bug which will be fixed with upcoming version.
