Good for those who are new
It is a very "basic" app that gives a general introduction to Ice Hockey and explains the game. Good for people that are new to the sport.
I can see this being useful for someone that will watch hockey on the Olympics and want to figure out what the heck is going on.
Doesn't measure up
Poorly written. Author isn't informative. Appears to be based on personal experience or conjecture rather than on officially cited references. Not worth the money. I am removing it from my iPhone.
