Quick, Customizable, Intuitive

Great app for making playbooks! Been using it for multiple seasons for creating our playbook and scout playbooks for each team we play throughout the season. Very happy with the app! My feedback to the developer would be to make field graphic scale able to get better representation of splits and field/boundary position, add a route tree option, and create a print option that’s keeps the play notes with the play rather than grouped at the end of the book. Overall this is the best app I’ve found out there!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the kind feedback, coach. We also appreciate the critical feedback and agree about scale, splits, printing with notes, etc. If you email me at I can give you some info about our upcoming next-gen app and the improvements that line up with your requests.

Must for football coaches!

This app has everything a football coach needs to develop playbooks and more. Easy to use, customizable, and easy to share with your staff and players. We’ve been using this app for a few years now and we haven’t looked back. Customer support is very quick to respond to any questions!

Great Idea and very useful coaching app

My one complaint is where are the FAQ and help sections? I cant figure out how to add to the formation template to get my own formations going. I can edit a current formation but haven't figured out how to add more than the 3 templates. Im hoping there is a way to do that and I just haven't figured it out yet. Otherwise its the smartphone playbook app of choice for me.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for taking the time to review the app. We have a full suite of tutorial videos at, but it sounds like you're using the iPhone app which has a few differences specific to formation templates. Email me at and I'll send along those instructions.
