Works well, easy to use, one glitch

I used this recently and it worked very well. Tracking the match was so easy. Much quicker to record events than traditional paper method.

I have found one glitch with setting up players. When setting up player numbers, I have to go in and out of the team a couple of times because the players don’t all show up. Once going in and out, they reappear. This can be frustrating when getting ready for a match where you don’t have the roster beforehand and are adding player numbers during pregame warmups.

I have not thought of another way yet but it would be great to have a way to add the number of players before the game but add numbers of the players on the fly when events occur. Then the app would simply fill in the player’s numbers in order as they are recorded. Or, provide a quicker way of getting numbers in like using the camera.

In any case, I really enjoyed using it and will continue. So simple and easy to use during the game.

Excellent and intuitive

I love the use of swipe left and right for team actions and force touch to change. So well done!

A couple suggestions:
1. Allow me to edit a team name
2. At the level I’m reffing, I shouldn’t need to preload all of the rosters before the game. I’d like to have the option to simply enter the player number when the event (card, goal) happens ,

Really good app on a lot of fronts - just a few updates needed

I played with the app (iPhone only, as I don't own an Apple Watch) following a game on TV. This solves a problem referees, parents, and fans have - how to keep track of what is happening in the game. The app is very intuitive. I had no problems swiping between the teams, and the displays were easy to read. I particularly like that there are two time displays - one to keep track of overall running time and one timer that stops and starts to account for stoppage time.

There are a few modifications that would make the app a five-star app.
1) Make the stoppage timer a countdown timer, and have a timers for the halftime break and to clearly show stoppage time. The Spintso referee watch does this very well.
2) Have the ability to load numbers "on the fly". My son plays youth club soccer, and we don't have rosters for the other team. I will need to quickly load the team numbers during the warmup. Having a setting where you don't need to record lineups would also help.

I love that this app can run from an iPhone without the need for an Apple Watch. One of the competing apps requires an Apple Watch, which I don't have any intention to purchase at the present time. I like how I'll be able to email match reports and then share them with the coach and parents after games.
