FIRST Hall of Fame Team 1114, Simbotics, is proud to announce that Version 1.3 of SimPhone was released today to the App Store available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. This new update brings a complete Spanish and French translation to the award winning app, downloaded over 2000 times in 67 countries. The strategy section has also been updated to include 2012 information in addition to a 2 hour video seminar.
This version of SimPhone could not have been completed without the tremendous efforts of Team 2283, Panteras, on the Spanish translation as well as Robotique FIRST Québec on the French translation. We hope that this new version of SimPhone will help support the rapid expansion of FRC that is happening in both Mexico and Québec.
SimPhone is a comprehensive resource for learning the fundamentals of competitive robotics. This app is designed to lead teams competing in the FIRST Robotics Competition to success. SimPhone features all the sections of Team 1114, Simbotics’, Textbook for Success. These sections are focused on helping both rookie and veteran teams to better themselves both on and off the competition field. Some of the included sections include step by step video instructions on how to build the FIRST famous Kitbot on Steroids, as well a video seminar on how to choose the optimal strategic design for your robot.
We look forward to continuously improving SimPhone to help promote robotics around the globe. Please help spread the word about SimPhone by sharing this information with the members of your local robotics community. With your help, we hope to get SimPhone in the hands of every FRC team this season.
