XCSOAR android app useful for GR and Audible Alti? Can't Post

Hello, perhaps there are some tech savvy people here (I know there are Wink) that can help me. I am researching the android app XC Soar to use while wingsuiting to calculate my glide ratio. I got to thinking (and trying to decipher features) and was wondering whether I could use the GPS altimeter feature to set realtime altitude alarms (like a regular audible altimeter would do) while in flight.

I am not really understanding the tech speak in the features section...has anybody else looked at this app? Is it possible to use it to calculate Glide ratio and also have altimeter alarms.

I am not concerned if altitude is off by 100-200ft. The margin for error is much larger than that for me anyways on a WS flight (I pull no lower than 4.5k ft).

I am looking to buy a smartphone anyways so I figured if I could get an audible altimeter and a GPS out of it then that would be sweet.

thanks a lot!

by the way, here is the website with the features: http://www.xcsoar.org/discover/features.html
