"Game Changer - This app is one of the most amazing tools I have used in my years of teaching marching band. So much you can do with it, no more carrying around paper charts trying to explain what a move should look like, students can watch, step-by-step, and see their coordinates the entire way. A total game changer for my band!" - SHS Drumline
"Simply the best drillbook app on the App Store - As a band director, I've fallen victim to carrying around the "large binder of charts" that the profession demands. Not any more!! Upon seeing what this app can offer, it's well worth the price, both for students and directors. Seeing every dot on the field in motion and, at any time, having the ability to click on a member and see their dot book coordinate is a massive timesaver and makes rehearsals infinitely more efficient." - NBRFWooo!
"Wonderful tool for drill - Beautiful, well polished, feature rich, prefect for quickly knowing what the drill should look like and the exact coordinates for any student." - Wooky
"This is the best app for reading drill - I seriously can't say enough about how well this app works. Uploading a show is simple, it updates easily, it's excellent and the developer is very responsive to issues." - Roskoski

Ratings and Reviews
Best drill cleaning app ever!
-The app is very accessible for band directors to find a performer's spot right away, share their coordinate with them if they need it and where their midpoint is if you're cleaning it in that fashion.
-The app is also good for having performers "be props" so you know your stage in advance and the kids know where to go without "hitting" any stage designed props. (Tip for band directors: have your drill writer write coordinates for props in your drill and this app plugs those prop locations in!)
-This app is the perfect cleaning drill app for a band director who doesn't need to run around the field, but stand up on his/her band tower with their long ranger!
-The "by the counts" feature is great for pass-throughs, midpoint drills, and rotation of forms.
-You can also showcase this drill app by projecting it with your iPad (with proper cables) and show every performer their spot (highlighted by touch screen) throughout the whole show. I have shown my students where their spot is throughout the show when I'm down on the field cleaning drill and it really helps!
Once was great but now appears to be abandoned
I have owned the app for a few years now and when it was working it was fantastic. Now I am running iOS 11 on an iPad pro and it will not open coordinate sheets from Pyware. The app developer’s Facebook page doesn’t appear to have been updated for a year. I am incredibly disappointed because this app was truly game changing when it did what it was designed to do. I loved the animation features it provided over carrying three ring binders full of charts.
A GREAT resource!
I have been using this app as a band director of a competitive marching band for three years. It has proven to be an invaluable tool in making our groups better. I highly recommend!
