Could be easily improved

Good except large pictures at the top of each screen take up half the screen. They don't scroll with the text. So you end up scrolling twice as often with text only ever visible in the bottom half of an already small screen.

Great App

Fantastic for players and referees, shows all laws like the book does, also does not require internet connection. As a referee myself it is good for on the go and the quiz also keeps my skills up to date. One thing, should be able to see which quiz questions you got wrong.
Otherwise a great app

Thanks for the ref hand signals!

What a great ap! Now I can figure out what's going on over the other side of the field in live games. I love that they have a video demo and everything. The ap is nice and easy to use too.
