A new mobile application for submit and timing (Made in IOTA/ME)

“SKYTIMING” is an accurate timing application (the desired accuracy is 0.01 seconds) for visual observation. It is always available and standalone. Moreover, it eliminates problems of other methods and has an easy access, good accuracy by using GPS for timing and the ability to perform all the steps by itself.
The developer of this application is Zeinab Sadat Lesani "permanent member of IOTA/ME".

You can download this application from http://www.iota-me.com/skytiming.html since 29 September 2017!
This is the first version of this application and it will be developed in next versions.
