Ratings and Reviews
I am really disappointed
I have used this app in the past and paid £4.99 for it. I took the plunge today and paid for full access at a cost of £11 ish for six months - what a massive mistake! I spent all evening creating a practise which consisted of five slides, all with detailed plans of tomorrow’s football session. I saved after each slide was created.
When I tried to create a session from this I had to choose another practice to go with it (even though I did not need to to because it was all in one practice session) and then was dismayed that only the initial slide was saved (even though earlier I checked and they were all there - I flicked through them all). On top of that, the one remaining slide that I have will only print some of my notes - I assume that there are too many.
I am left wondering how is this in any way useful?
I very rarely write a review and never a negative one and so I am disappointed to be writing this - I would have emailed the developers before writing this but there seems to be no contact address that actually works on their website.
Pitch covers up the coaching points
When downloading a session the pitch covers up the coaching points. Also doesn’t let you create a new session from a old practice. Keeps crashing
Needs work and big fixes.
Could be a good app, well presented and nice graphics but a few problems. Firstly, if the FA were serious about helping coaches I think a reduced price from £6.99 for licensed coaches would have been a good start. Inside the app, when you share your practice on email it doesn't save all of your input correctly. It also crashes frequently using text input so be sure to save sessions frequently. Its very difficult to shrink equipment down to a small size if you want to put multiple items in a tight area. Rotating when it's small is difficult too.
If you want to create a practice with multiple slides I would save it after every slide as the amount of times it has crashed for me, I feel like launching the iPad. A bit rushed and lack of testing is obvious, will be expecting some big fix updates soon.
