SubNow is the ultimate sub timer for social and junior team sports where fair game time is a priority.

If you find managing subs detracts from your enjoyment of playing, coaching or managing then SubNow is the app you have been looking for.

SubNow prevents those sub rotation errors that can lead to players feeling they are “not good enough” to deserve as much game time as their friends.

SubNow also prevents adults playing in social teams from missing out on game time because they don’t know who they should be calling off the field to rotate with them.

SubNow has a Demo Team already set up so you can immediately experiment with your game situation to see how SubNow would work for you.

SubNow is free for one team up to 6 players

SubNow combines all the best features of other sub timer apps on the market while adding in some unique and powerful additional capabilities which include:
View and edit full rotation plan before the game.
Automatically recalculate remaining rotations if a player is injured or comes off early.
Use the automatically calculated “Equal Game Time” rotation plan or set your own rotation period and number of subs per rotation.
Receive “Prepare Subs” audio warning for when a rotation is approaching.
Tick off player rotations as they happen so you know you are following the rotation plan.
Use drag and drop to set which players are starting on the field and on the bench.
Take phone calls and check other apps without affecting the SubNow game clock.
Set any game time, count up or count down, with automatic breaks at half or quarter time.
Set goal keeper as “non-rotating” and rotate them manually at half time if desired.
Use game clock pause, fast forward and rewind for pre-game testing and to keep the SubNow timer in-sync with official game clock/referees watch.

Well Worth the $2.64!!!!

Stumbled upon this app after feeling defeated coaching my first game of soccer ever - who would have known how difficult it would be to try to substitute kids in and out of the game?!? And here I thought I’d be coaching fundamentals of soccer this season not trying to heard sheep lol! This app is awesome and allows you to throw away the spreadsheet that you spent 4 hours developing to make sure kids get even playing time! My only wishes? That it would be a one time fee instead of monthly and that maybe you could have an optional category for rotating offense, defense and goalie as we go up in age levels? Right now we only have to rotate out the goalie and I can do that manually but would love a rotating goalie option if you put out another version. In the same new version I think it would be awesome to be able to program who switches with who without having to hit the fast forward button the entire game before game time. I tend to run out of time during the game to do the switches but if I could switch the subs before the game without having to hit Fast Forward that would be awesome! Overall, this app is awesome and really has been a huge helper for my 1st/2nd Grade team! Thank you!
