Tackle Football Playmaker


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Tackle Football Playmaker is an interactive playbook & quarterback wristband system for iPad. For the last decade we've used traditional playbooks, scout team cards, handmade quarterback wristband inserts and white boards to good effect, but in the iPad we saw the potential for a dynamic editing and play calling tool that would give us a decided advantage in game planning, in-game adjustments and player comprehension.


• Share your playbooks with other coaches, players and between your devices.
• Import shared playbooks into Playmaker.
• Send professionally-designed playbooks and quarterback wristbands in PDF format for viewing and printing.


• Intuitive touch controls make it easy to create formations & draw plays.
• Name plays & assign them to formations & categories for instant access to the right play for any situation. No more searching through stacks of paper.
• Collapsable roster panel lists all team members with jersey numbers & current positions.
• Duplicate or Flip+Duplicate any play for fast diagramming of series.


• Make changes to existing plays on the fly.
• Flip any play instantly.
• Draw up a new play in seconds to take advantage of schematic opportunities as they emerge.
• Switch between offensive & defensive playbooks with one touch.


• Drag & drop position assignment saves time in the huddle & keeps players focused on their assignments.
• Customizable colors & labels clearly distinguish positions.
• High definition graphics make play diagrams easy to see under any lighting conditions.

Customer Reviews

Love the app BUT...

Some people organize their stuff differently than others, which is sort of a the only problem. Unless I'm not fully educated on the app, the organization features could be better. It's great for just jotting down random plays and such but could be better when it comes to its use of creating an entire system. It would be much better if the formations category was just for creating and saving formations alone. And then since they are saved, when you go to make a play, you can just select the saved formation you'd like to make the play with. This would be so that you can draw the same play out of many different formations in one category. Maybe you can do it like this already and I'm not doing it right, but the whole reason for the long explanation is I'd try to do this but the plays get mixed in with other categories where they're not supposed to be, creating a lot of disorganization. If it wasn't for this I'd give it five stars but I still like the app so I'll give it four.
