Sky Sports for iPad 2.0 gets F1 Race Control and live streaming

Less boring old Sky Sports News app, more on board F1 camera action. Va va vroom

Sky Sports subscribers should be bouncing around this week as Sky's rolling all sorts of goodies out to its physical competition-inclined iPad app, for free. Alongside streaming the Sky Sports channels, the new Sky Sports for iPad 2.0 app gives you an extra section called F1 'Race Control' which looks very cool indeed.

There's bags of live streams available, including the main race coverage, pit lane cameras and – swoon – actual, on-board cameras. Live race data is fed into the app so you can keep one eye on drivers' latest positions and lap timings plus a Twitter feed if you care what other F1 fanatics think about the race. A race scheduler for the entire F1 season and live highlights module complete the set-up.

Prepare for this Sky Sports for iPad app update to take your F1 second screening to another level – seriously. Get it for £4.99 from iTunes if you don't have a sub, otherwise it's free for Sky Sports subscribers.
