Once was great

Seems to be a completely unsupported app now. Many bugs are killing the usefulness and rendering it unusable.
Erases players when saving
by imabeamac4life on 2018/05/18 01:21
I created an 11 person offensive play nut when I save it ,it erases my 2 WR. I put them back and click save again then it erases my running backs. If your charging $10 for an app it should work properly
Coach me blank
by BELL RICH on 2016/02/23 05:57
It keeps crashing and going blank
Best app but no support
by Some guy 9999 on 2015/11/03 16:03
I've had this app for years and it's by far the best app for coaching out there. The only problem is that there is no way to report bugs. I haven't had a serious issue with bugs ever until now which is why I'm still giving this 5 stars
No support, loaded with bugs, empty promises
by Bob & Angi on 2015/09/14 19:29
Just started using this before this year's season. Drew up some of my team's plays, liked the idea of having the teenage players use this to learn since they are all on they're devices all the time anyway. However, I ended up spending countless hours on my own trying to figure out how to get a team up and running on the network and apps. I waited days for responses to what should have been very easy questions to answer. And when I did get responses, they were canned answers with empty promises. I felt like I was debugging their system for them. I had to apologize to my coaches, players and their parents. It ended up looking like me making empty promises because I could not deliver on what coachme claimed it could do. Examples of the type of support I got: Was told there was a drop down menus where there weren't Was told there was a faster better version coming soon fixing all the bugs I was fining. Never came out. Before finally giving up, I pleaded for some last minute help. Nothing. You'd think during football season, they would have round the clock support. Nope. Like the concept, but will not using coachme in the future. I am now looking for providers that do what they claim and have good support. I wanted to put this review out for coaches thinking about using coachme right now to save you from what I went through.
Glitchy as all Hell!
by Eric Opperman on 2014/08/22 02:59
App told me the default 'My Playbook' was not updating and asked to delete. It deleted my play book with a different name that I had spent 12 hours building. Notes save menu is all jacked up.
Fix the bugs!
by drew5839 on 2014/08/08 06:23
I save my plays and formations, and when I go back to the play, all the player positions are scrambled around. Nothing looks right. I have to go back and re-create the play and save it again.
Bad app
by Joxendine on 2014/06/30 00:06
Not a very good app. Does not always save your plays or the notes from those plays.
Love it without glitches
by Bighaze on 2013/11/24 03:40
Good app but needs to work out glitches!!! -players will erase but lines stay on the screen -lines will stay on the screen from previous formations, messes up new plays -animation doesn't work properly
Poor update
by BigLou44 on 2013/10/09 12:59
Loved this app until the update. Crashes all the time now and lost several plays right after saving them. Routes stick on the screen and won't erase. The D was in letters only and was a great contrast to the O players before. Now they are in circles just like the O. When in black & white or emailed it's hard to tell the difference between O & D characters. Please go back to the old one so I can change my review back to 5 stars.
Bad update
by Bad updates by coach me on 2013/10/06 22:55
Great ap until update, now crashes and does not save plays....should have left it alone. Can't use anymore because unreliable which a coach can not have!
My plays are gone..
by Cschuten on 2013/10/06 18:07
I did the latest update and all of my plays are gone now... I am giving you 5 starts because the app is great. If this is not fixed, I will have to change that to 1 star. Without confidence that my plays are not going to get lost the app is worth nothing. AND you will need to refund my money. You have a real good thing here but will lose it all if you do not fix this problem. Thank you
Coach
by GLW663 on 2013/08/18 19:35
App is great for animation. Chalkboard needs an eraser
Outstanding App
by 1NDfan77 on 2013/05/01 02:33
As a youth coach I'm constantly looking for ways to reduce my prep time and for ways to make instruction more meaningful. We only get 6 hours per week with our kids and this app makes sense. The kids these days play so many games that they probably understand this better than a static paper play card. If you are a youth coach, or High School, this is a must have app. I have used Playmaker pro, playbook pro, and coaches office playbook suite, this was the easiest to use and took less than 5 minutes to orient myself to operate it efficiently!
Overall Good
by Another tired reader on 2013/02/25 23:19
Would be helpful to: send whole playbook via email, have access to some historical play books for reference. Great features, but still has some bugs. Keep up the good work!
Help
by Srbanditcoach on 2013/02/06 03:17
Got play books made can't save to network or make new play books I don't want to delete app and redownload fearing I will lose my plays help
Great App
by dw44 on 2013/01/20 18:23
Please add the ability to email a whole playbook as a PDF instead of just on play at a time as jpeg.
Great App for coaches
by Peete91 on 2013/01/13 20:13
I coach football and this app is a huge help for scouting and drawing up plays....now we need you to team up with hudl so I can watch tape and record plays at same Time!!!!! Make it happen!!!
Got stuck
by Lazyace123 on 2013/01/05 03:48
Tried to color routes and app would not let me exit out. Tried everything and finally had to delete app. Hopefully bug will get fixed!
Matt
by Mattymo79 on 2013/01/05 02:11
This is the best football app ever for about 5 minutes. By the 6th minute it freezes and the bugs take over. I am frustrated more than normal because it is so close to being great. Fix the bugs and you have a great app!!!
Best football app- period!!
by ocalafan on 2012/11/22 03:53
I'm a high school coach in Florida and we started using this app over the summer- now in the second week of playoffs I can tell you that this has made "scout" team preparation so much easier and communication between our coaches on what we want to run much easier then just using paint or power point- very much worth the money for this app- - and the new email update is great, if you want a app made by people who CARE, then buy this app- I have not seen customer service like theirs with any app on this store - thank you coachme football!!
Best App to date
by DMook on 2012/09/09 18:39
This play book app is outstanding. With a few more features it could also be a killer scouting app. I was able to scout an entire game (solo - with wife) with this app. It may not be designed for that, but it really does a nice job of charting plays and formations. Anyone who doesn't give this app 5 stars compared to what's out there is kidding themselves. This App is well designed and can be a great teaching tool for plays! Well worth the $8!
Play sharing needed
by DreWright on 2012/08/19 15:38
This app is a creative thought and could be really great with some enhancements. Doesn't work well in iPhone which is why sharing between devices is needed. The email and photo gallery option is cool but if we could create, save, and share the animation that would make this $8 app much more intriguing.
Needs work
by W00d33 on 2012/08/13 17:34
It's faster to just draw it out on paper It takes too long to set everything up!
Overall best playbook app yet
by Kfoster79 on 2012/08/05 22:13
I used the lite version and with in hours I knew I wanted to full version. This app is easy to use and would be 5 stars if I could export the whole playbook as a PDF not just one play at a time as an email or screen cap.
Good could be great
by firedude066 on 2012/08/04 14:37
If this app had a bluetooth option to send plays to other app owners, and the ability to save different play books, 5 stars!
I wish it worked right
by ron richardson on 2012/07/11 14:52
Jus got it and it's already sticky want open up y help
Wont Save Notes
by Rockymtnhusker on 2012/07/10 17:58
I think its great. Could be an outstanding app, but it wont save my notes
Freezes
by ben000000001 on 2012/07/09 17:57
This thing froze up within five minutes of buying it. Its was good for that first four minutes but now i cant use it. Complete waste of money.
Great APP!
by Eljavelina on 2012/06/19 04:04
Great APP! Had a glitch but contacted them and was fixed right away! I used it in a coaching clinic and worked great and was vital to my job! Great app!
Does not give you the ability to save
by kaydube1234 on 2012/06/18 19:03
Just recently purchased the Coach Me Football App for the ability to save and althoughI like the functionality of the app itself, it glitches and freezes if I try to access plays lower than the top two saved plays. This is a $5.99 app please provide me a refund. Thanks
Very good
by Nicknameistakenchooseanother1 on 2012/06/12 16:16
Been using for a while now. Only froze twice. Great for designing plays. No more scrap paper everywhere or wasted printer ink. It could be better with the ability to put plays in folders. You can save plays as a screenshot pic, transfer, then print. I've also designed drills with it. You must have iPad though. Dont bother with phone it's too small. Not everything you'd want but it is worth it.
App freezes
by Tadal84 on 2012/06/04 20:25
Played with the lite version all off season and and now that I want to save plays I bought the pro version then it freezes up on me. Not good at all I want my money back
Purchased this app and used twice, now it is locked up and I can't use it

Inconsistent
by Coachmsmart on 2012/05/01 15:19
Is a great app when it works, but seems to freeze up every IRS play that is made. App is too expensive to have glitches like that in it.
Good
by Most beloved on 2012/04/18 19:33
Looks good
Quite an excellent football app!
by ahappshare on 2012/04/17 20:24
Great coaching app for iOS devices, would very much recommend it to any football coach!
Excellent game!
by MARIAdona on 2012/04/15 14:03
This is a powerful app that gives you the tools you need to become more efficient, productive and take your game to the next step
Coach Me Football Edition Pro
by howelljack19 on 2012/04/15 12:45
This application have friendly interface, easy to use. I like using it to show my football team.
its good
by neosback47 on 2012/04/15 08:06
Its a bit expensive but it may come in handy.
good game
by philipbale56 on 2012/04/14 01:16
this game is easy to play and graphics of it are very good. it's suitable for everyone like the football. i will become coach with this app.
too bad
by Jonglul on 2012/04/13 11:17
I am an amateur football player. we do football like hobby. we don't have much time for echt other now we can use the app make Tactical guidance and send to them then we can Discuss it online This should beperfect app for me, workt great on ipad, but i don't know how, it can't start on iphone, too bad
Really Amazing!
by Kai Hong on 2012/04/13 05:57
This is an absolutely powerful tactics chalkboard for the football coaches! U can simulate all kind of tactics and see how they work. What's more, it also benefits football players in a way that they can try their thoughts on the tactics any time at any place, which will defenitely improve their football mind! Such a great app! A little flaw is the instability which the developer should try to fix,
Doesn't seem to work on my iPhone 4
by Sodaguy on 2012/04/13 03:26
I thought this app looked great for coming up with and saving plays. In reality it works very slowly and is extremely unresponsive. You can't move anything around without trying 5-10 times. I think it is far more frustrating than useful. The chalkboard feature seems to work ok.
great game
by susannicole78 on 2012/04/13 01:25
this game is suitable for me and everyone who like football. it's easy to play and i can't stop play it. i like it

by rechardpalin on 2012/04/13 00:48
this is great game. it help me manage the football team. it's easy to use and the graphics are very good. thanks so much
UhOh
by CoachQuenzer on 2012/03/27 04:18
I am a new to Ipad and bought this app. It was awesome until the update and now I can't do anything without it redirecting me to Facebook! What do I do now? Do I wait for another update?
Upset
by PredatorGM on 2012/03/24 15:47
Will not work. I updated it and will not get past the opening screen. When I hit play book at the top it freezes. Please fix the problem
BIFF
by Biff1966 on 2012/03/17 23:59
WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY... AFTER 5 PLAYS YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING BECAUSE THE " OPEN FEINT" or whatever it's called keeps opening and won't let you do a new play or delete routes or players because when you try to close that window the open feint opens. No good, trouble, I hate this app.
Initially I liked it
by Joedaddy755 on 2012/03/10 22:07
Now I want my money back. So many bugs the App is almost unusable. It locks up constantly. The "Save" feature is almost impossible to utilize in any intuitive manner. It erases plays randomly. It looks so simple that I would love to use it. It has become the ultimate frustration. I would like my money back because at this moment I feel that meapps has stolen 5.99 from me and given me a peice of worthless garbage. Do not buy unless they fix the problems.
Fix it!!!
by xoloitscuintles on 2012/02/24 06:18
It looks good, but it's way to glitchy ... Fix it !! Cant save or edit plays. Restarts it self... Make it work.
Flip and Save
by Thomas Smith on 2012/02/24 01:42
I want to be able to flip a play and save it. It is a pain to have to do a play over from scratch to save the play.
Saving Plays
by Kwallis40 on 2012/02/19 21:58
I have to shut down the app each time after I save a play, if I want to save another one. Fix this
Horrible
by jason henderson on 2012/02/19 07:32
Impossible to use on IPhone and it locks up constantly . Give me my money back ! If you are able to create a play you can't even get the email icon to work . Anyone can have a great idea but not know how to implement it ! NOOBS!
Not bad
by Nick3176 on 2012/02/13 16:07
I thought it was good only i wish you could change the route colors so that you could tell what players are doing ex. Red for blitzing orange for zone cover, brown for man coverage, etc
Ditto
by Gcoop4231 on 2012/02/08 13:53
Why has my iPad locked on th coachme football. Please answer on how to fix
lockup
by corb1 on 2012/02/04 01:56
why does my computer continually lock up. how do i unlock program?
Okay, needs a lot of work
by NMorse on 2012/01/24 03:42
It is a good app for visualizing some plays but it could be a lot better. The formations always shift when reloading a play and the defense needs to have zone coverage instead of arrows. It's decent but it should be $2. -Nic
Suggestion
by BenjaminGGardner on 2011/11/22 02:30
This would better serve my purposes for coaching if... 1. The lines could be hidden when it animates. Not always, but to have that as an option. 2. There were grid lines, a field layout to use as landmarks. From a coaching standpoint, landmarks are essential. Other than that, it is a great start to an app for coaching football

by Coach rm on 2011/11/01 19:51
I would also like to see email capability and print option. App has potential.
Good but can be better
by Fb4life$$ on 2011/10/30 16:12
Good app but there is a few things that can be added to make it solid Email plays Print plays from app Instead of blackboard have options for background (field, whiteboard etc)
It is almost there
by vikespurple on 2011/09/27 20:18
Saving plays is not a finished part of the program. Saved the same play 3x for me EACH time I save the play. The worst part is none of the play is saved except for the offensive line and football which makes the save feature worthless. When trying to save the timer just spins with no indication of the play being saved. My advice to the programmer is to get to work and fix these items and this program would be a winner. For $6 I would expect that. Many coaches from flag to tackle would love to create and email plays to other coaches and friends. Keep working on this so my investment is not wasted and the program is fully functional. Thanks!
Bug but workaround available
by JimmyB777 on 2011/09/15 19:21
Thought i would take a chance and buy anyway thinking the bugs wouldn't apply to me. Unfortunately not the case. However I emailed support and quickly got a response (within an hour). The issue is with saving plays with a person in motion causes a lockup. The workaround is simply to complete the motion route by drawing another route from the tip of the motion route. Support says this workaround won't be required in the next release.
Tons of bugs
by lawdog1971 on 2011/09/14 14:43
I was excited about the potential, but then ran into several bugs that simply make this app worthless. There is no value in this app. It is a waste of money. If they did fix the bugs though, it would be a fantastic app.
Great possibilities, BUT.....
by Joey Ketchum on 2011/09/13 19:11
This app has great possibilities, but has several bugs that make it useless! If these bugs are fixed, this app would be wonderful. But, for now, a complete waste of my money! DO NOT BUY until the bugs are fixed!
Frustrated
by MylasC on 2011/09/13 04:29
The app has potential but it's a long way from being easy to use. The update said that the bugs had been fixed to allow you to save the plays and eliminate the crashes. Neither are true. You can't save the plays, they can't be recalled and each time t You try the app crashes. So far it's a complete disappointment. Hopefully they'll either get it fixed or refund my money!
Not impressed
by Johnny botany on 2011/08/30 11:16
I dl'ed several playbook apps before I spent my money on this one. Needless to say I'm not overly impressed. There is no way to email the plays you create so you can hand out a playbook. I'm running into the same issues that others are reporting when saving plays. The saving grace of this app is the ability to "run" the play. To bad there are no refunds.
Issues with app...
by JYA C1255 on 2011/08/26 20:12
Right now I'm not impressed with this app. I paid for the pro version so I could save my plays, but keep getting an error message. I tried to reach out to support, but when I go to their site even their "contact me" email isn't functioning. Too bad, I thought the app had promise.
Very easy to use
by Gamerkc on 2011/08/26 01:37
This app is incredibly easy to use and is far more useful than the professional software that coaches pay a bundle for. The only missing aspect is the ability to export the formations and plays so that play books or handouts can be easily printed.
Good stuff
by jnkreed18 on 2011/08/20 12:19
Very easy to use. Only complaint is that you have to shake the iPad to erase the board. A simple erase button would be much easier.
Same problems as others.
by Eagleoc on 2011/08/16 14:33
Can't delete plays. Hard to save. Force closes often. Would be great if bugs were fixed, but as of now, I want my money back.
Buggy
by Intercepted28 on 2011/08/16 02:50
Can't delete plays that I screwed up. Will lose formations even after plays save. When switching plays it would be nice if it deleted the old play first instead of stacking on top of itself. Sometimes it also brings up multiple playbooks and won't let me scroll down the plays. Other than that and especially the deleting one it is a great app. Unfortunately until it is patched I can't use the app.
BUGS
by RRGCOACH on 2011/08/15 21:42
I used this app immediately after downloading it...worked well....that was it....for the last day...can't delete plays...can't run plays....can' load plays......and the app closes a lot....if these bugs were fixed....it looks...and was temporarily a great app.....

by CoachFL on 2011/08/14 22:56
Brilliant App!! Great for translating ideas through simulation into working plays to introduce to my team... Love this!
next play
by fbcoachrh on 2011/08/14 19:22
There needs to be a button to go to next play in playbook. I don't want to go to back to playbook to get next play. A simple swipe would do. Also you should be able to create folders in playbook for easier organization.

Cool App! For Coaching or for fun.
by ahicks324 on 2011/08/12 09:47
Drawing plays up on a chalkboard is great for any football fan. The app is fast and simple enough to use to create an effective offense. Save feature is helpful but I'd like to see an export or print option in future updates so I can print plays out. Nice work Meapps!

I did the latest update and all of my plays are gone now... I am giving you 5 starts because the app is great. If this is not fixed, I will have to change that to 1 star. Without confidence that my plays are not going to get lost the app is worth nothing. AND you will need to refund my money. You have a real good thing here but will lose it all if you do not fix this problem. Thank you
Really Amazing!
by Kai Hong on 2012/04/13 05:57
This is an absolutely powerful tactics chalkboard for the football coaches! U can simulate all kind of tactics and see how they work. What's more, it also benefits football players in a way that they can try their thoughts on the tactics any time at any place, which will defenitely improve their football mind! Such a great app! A little flaw is the instability which the developer should try to fix,
Very good
by Nicknameistakenchooseanother1 on 2012/06/12 16:16
Been using for a while now. Only froze twice. Great for designing plays. No more scrap paper everywhere or wasted printer ink. It could be better with the ability to put plays in folders. You can save plays as a screenshot pic, transfer, then print. I've also designed drills with it. You must have iPad though. Dont bother with phone it's too small. Not everything you'd want but it is worth it.
Buggy
by Intercepted28 on 2011/08/16 02:50
Can't delete plays that I screwed up. Will lose formations even after plays save. When switching plays it would be nice if it deleted the old play first instead of stacking on top of itself. Sometimes it also brings up multiple playbooks and won't let me scroll down the plays. Other than that and especially the deleting one it is a great app. Unfortunately until it is patched I can't use the app.
Play sharing needed
by DreWright on 2012/08/19 15:38
This app is a creative thought and could be really great with some enhancements. Doesn't work well in iPhone which is why sharing between devices is needed. The email and photo gallery option is cool but if we could create, save, and share the animation that would make this $8 app much more intriguing.
Best app but no support
by Some guy 9999 on 2015/11/03 16:03
I've had this app for years and it's by far the best app for coaching out there. The only problem is that there is no way to report bugs. I haven't had a serious issue with bugs ever until now which is why I'm still giving this 5 stars
Not impressed
by Johnny botany on 2011/08/30 11:16
I dl'ed several playbook apps before I spent my money on this one. Needless to say I'm not overly impressed. There is no way to email the plays you create so you can hand out a playbook. I'm running into the same issues that others are reporting when saving plays. The saving grace of this app is the ability to "run" the play. To bad there are no refunds.
Issues with app...
by JYA C1255 on 2011/08/26 20:12
Right now I'm not impressed with this app. I paid for the pro version so I could save my plays, but keep getting an error message. I tried to reach out to support, but when I go to their site even their "contact me" email isn't functioning. Too bad, I thought the app had promise.
Very easy to use
by Gamerkc on 2011/08/26 01:37
This app is incredibly easy to use and is far more useful than the professional software that coaches pay a bundle for. The only missing aspect is the ability to export the formations and plays so that play books or handouts can be easily printed.
Poor update
by BigLou44 on 2013/10/09 12:59
Loved this app until the update. Crashes all the time now and lost several plays right after saving them. Routes stick on the screen and won't erase. The D was in letters only and was a great contrast to the O players before. Now they are in circles just like the O. When in black & white or emailed it's hard to tell the difference between O & D characters. Please go back to the old one so I can change my review back to 5 stars.
Cool App! For Coaching or for fun.
by ahicks324 on 2011/08/12 09:47
Drawing plays up on a chalkboard is great for any football fan. The app is fast and simple enough to use to create an effective offense. Save feature is helpful but I'd like to see an export or print option in future updates so I can print plays out. Nice work Meapps!
Frustrated
by MylasC on 2011/09/13 04:29
The app has potential but it's a long way from being easy to use. The update said that the bugs had been fixed to allow you to save the plays and eliminate the crashes. Neither are true. You can't save the plays, they can't be recalled and each time t You try the app crashes. So far it's a complete disappointment. Hopefully they'll either get it fixed or refund my money!
Good but can be better
by Fb4life$$ on 2011/10/30 16:12
Good app but there is a few things that can be added to make it solid Email plays Print plays from app Instead of blackboard have options for background (field, whiteboard etc)
Overall best playbook app yet
by Kfoster79 on 2012/08/05 22:13
I used the lite version and with in hours I knew I wanted to full version. This app is easy to use and would be 5 stars if I could export the whole playbook as a PDF not just one play at a time as an email or screen cap.
too bad
by Jonglul on 2012/04/13 11:17
I am an amateur football player. we do football like hobby. we don't have much time for echt other now we can use the app make Tactical guidance and send to them then we can Discuss it online This should beperfect app for me, workt great on ipad, but i don't know how, it can't start on iphone, too bad
Great App for coaches
by Peete91 on 2013/01/13 20:13
I coach football and this app is a huge help for scouting and drawing up plays....now we need you to team up with hudl so I can watch tape and record plays at same Time!!!!! Make it happen!!!
Doesn't seem to work on my iPhone 4
by Sodaguy on 2012/04/13 03:26
I thought this app looked great for coming up with and saving plays. In reality it works very slowly and is extremely unresponsive. You can't move anything around without trying 5-10 times. I think it is far more frustrating than useful. The chalkboard feature seems to work ok.
Overall Good
by Another tired reader on 2013/02/25 23:19
Would be helpful to: send whole playbook via email, have access to some historical play books for reference. Great features, but still has some bugs. Keep up the good work!
next play
by fbcoachrh on 2011/08/14 19:22
There needs to be a button to go to next play in playbook. I don't want to go to back to playbook to get next play. A simple swipe would do. Also you should be able to create folders in playbook for easier organization.
Excellent game!
by MARIAdona on 2012/04/15 14:03
This is a powerful app that gives you the tools you need to become more efficient, productive and take your game to the next step

Good app but needs to work out glitches!!! -players will erase but lines stay on the screen -lines will stay on the screen from previous formations, messes up new plays -animation doesn't work properly
Fix the bugs!
by drew5839 on 2014/08/08 06:23
I save my plays and formations, and when I go back to the play, all the player positions are scrambled around. Nothing looks right. I have to go back and re-create the play and save it again.
Okay, needs a lot of work
by NMorse on 2012/01/24 03:42
It is a good app for visualizing some plays but it could be a lot better. The formations always shift when reloading a play and the defense needs to have zone coverage instead of arrows. It's decent but it should be $2. -Nic
Does not give you the ability to save
by kaydube1234 on 2012/06/18 19:03
Just recently purchased the Coach Me Football App for the ability to save and althoughI like the functionality of the app itself, it glitches and freezes if I try to access plays lower than the top two saved plays. This is a $5.99 app please provide me a refund. Thanks
Help
by Srbanditcoach on 2013/02/06 03:17
Got play books made can't save to network or make new play books I don't want to delete app and redownload fearing I will lose my plays help
Quite an excellent football app!
by ahappshare on 2012/04/17 20:24
Great coaching app for iOS devices, would very much recommend it to any football coach!
Not bad
by Nick3176 on 2012/02/13 16:07
I thought it was good only i wish you could change the route colors so that you could tell what players are doing ex. Red for blitzing orange for zone cover, brown for man coverage, etc
Good could be great
by firedude066 on 2012/08/04 14:37
If this app had a bluetooth option to send plays to other app owners, and the ability to save different play books, 5 stars!
BUGS
by RRGCOACH on 2011/08/15 21:42
I used this app immediately after downloading it...worked well....that was it....for the last day...can't delete plays...can't run plays....can' load plays......and the app closes a lot....if these bugs were fixed....it looks...and was temporarily a great app.....
Great App
by dw44 on 2013/01/20 18:23
Please add the ability to email a whole playbook as a PDF instead of just on play at a time as jpeg.
Good stuff
by jnkreed18 on 2011/08/20 12:19
Very easy to use. Only complaint is that you have to shake the iPad to erase the board. A simple erase button would be much easier.
UhOh
by CoachQuenzer on 2012/03/27 04:18
I am a new to Ipad and bought this app. It was awesome until the update and now I can't do anything without it redirecting me to Facebook! What do I do now? Do I wait for another update?
Got stuck
by Lazyace123 on 2013/01/05 03:48
Tried to color routes and app would not let me exit out. Tried everything and finally had to delete app. Hopefully bug will get fixed!
Tons of bugs
by lawdog1971 on 2011/09/14 14:43
I was excited about the potential, but then ran into several bugs that simply make this app worthless. There is no value in this app. It is a waste of money. If they did fix the bugs though, it would be a fantastic app.
Same problems as others.
by Eagleoc on 2011/08/16 14:33
Can't delete plays. Hard to save. Force closes often. Would be great if bugs were fixed, but as of now, I want my money back.
Freezes
by ben000000001 on 2012/07/09 17:57
This thing froze up within five minutes of buying it. Its was good for that first four minutes but now i cant use it. Complete waste of money.
Initially I liked it
by Joedaddy755 on 2012/03/10 22:07
Now I want my money back. So many bugs the App is almost unusable. It locks up constantly. The "Save" feature is almost impossible to utilize in any intuitive manner. It erases plays randomly. It looks so simple that I would love to use it. It has become the ultimate frustration. I would like my money back because at this moment I feel that meapps has stolen 5.99 from me and given me a peice of worthless garbage. Do not buy unless they fix the problems.
Matt
by Mattymo79 on 2013/01/05 02:11
This is the best football app ever for about 5 minutes. By the 6th minute it freezes and the bugs take over. I am frustrated more than normal because it is so close to being great. Fix the bugs and you have a great app!!!
Great possibilities, BUT.....
by Joey Ketchum on 2011/09/13 19:11
This app has great possibilities, but has several bugs that make it useless! If these bugs are fixed, this app would be wonderful. But, for now, a complete waste of my money! DO NOT BUY until the bugs are fixed!

Seems to be a completely unsupported app now. Many bugs are killing the usefulness and rendering it unusable.
Erases players when saving
by imabeamac4life on 2018/05/18 01:21
I created an 11 person offensive play nut when I save it ,it erases my 2 WR. I put them back and click save again then it erases my running backs. If your charging $10 for an app it should work properly
Coach me blank

No support, loaded with bugs, empty promises
by Bob & Angi on 2015/09/14 19:29
Just started using this before this year's season. Drew up some of my team's plays, liked the idea of having the teenage players use this to learn since they are all on they're devices all the time anyway. However, I ended up spending countless hours on my own trying to figure out how to get a team up and running on the network and apps. I waited days for responses to what should have been very easy questions to answer. And when I did get responses, they were canned answers with empty promises. I felt like I was debugging their system for them. I had to apologize to my coaches, players and their parents. It ended up looking like me making empty promises because I could not deliver on what coachme claimed it could do. Examples of the type of support I got: Was told there was a drop down menus where there weren't Was told there was a faster better version coming soon fixing all the bugs I was fining. Never came out. Before finally giving up, I pleaded for some last minute help. Nothing. You'd think during football season, they would have round the clock support. Nope. Like the concept, but will not using coachme in the future. I am now looking for providers that do what they claim and have good support. I wanted to put this review out for coaches thinking about using coachme right now to save you from what I went through.
Glitchy as all Hell!
by Eric Opperman on 2014/08/22 02:59
App told me the default 'My Playbook' was not updating and asked to delete. It deleted my play book with a different name that I had spent 12 hours building. Notes save menu is all jacked up.

Outstanding App
by 1NDfan77 on 2013/05/01 02:33
As a youth coach I'm constantly looking for ways to reduce my prep time and for ways to make instruction more meaningful. We only get 6 hours per week with our kids and this app makes sense. The kids these days play so many games that they probably understand this better than a static paper play card. If you are a youth coach, or High School, this is a must have app. I have used Playmaker pro, playbook pro, and coaches office playbook suite, this was the easiest to use and took less than 5 minutes to orient myself to operate it efficiently!
Overall Good

Best football app- period!!
by ocalafan on 2012/11/22 03:53
I'm a high school coach in Florida and we started using this app over the summer- now in the second week of playoffs I can tell you that this has made "scout" team preparation so much easier and communication between our coaches on what we want to run much easier then just using paint or power point- very much worth the money for this app- - and the new email update is great, if you want a app made by people who CARE, then buy this app- I have not seen customer service like theirs with any app on this store - thank you coachme football!!
Best App to date
by DMook on 2012/09/09 18:39
This play book app is outstanding. With a few more features it could also be a killer scouting app. I was able to scout an entire game (solo - with wife) with this app. It may not be designed for that, but it really does a nice job of charting plays and formations. Anyone who doesn't give this app 5 stars compared to what's out there is kidding themselves. This App is well designed and can be a great teaching tool for plays! Well worth the $8!

This app is a creative thought and could be really great with some enhancements. Doesn't work well in iPhone which is why sharing between devices is needed.

Been using for a while now. Only froze twice. Great for designing plays. No more scrap paper everywhere or wasted printer ink. It could be better with the ability to put plays in folders. You can save plays as a screenshot pic, transfer, then print. I've also designed drills with it. You must have iPad though. Dont bother with phone it's too small. Not everything you'd want but it is worth it.

Will not work. I updated it and will not get past the opening screen. When I hit play book at the top it freezes. Please fix the problem
BIFF
by Biff1966 on 2012/03/17 23:59
WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY... AFTER 5 PLAYS YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING BECAUSE THE " OPEN FEINT" or whatever it's called keeps opening and won't let you do a new play or delete routes or players because when you try to close that window the open feint opens. No good, trouble, I hate this app.
Initially I liked it
by Joedaddy755 on 2012/03/10 22:07
Now I want my money back. So many bugs the App is almost unusable. It locks up constantly. The "Save" feature is almost impossible to utilize in any intuitive manner. It erases plays randomly. It looks so simple that I would love to use it. It has become the ultimate frustration. I would like my money back because at this moment I feel that meapps has stolen 5.99 from me and given me a peice of worthless garbage. Do not buy unless they fix the problems.
Fix it!!!
by xoloitscuintles on 2012/02/24 06:18
It looks good, but it's way to glitchy ... Fix it !! Cant save or edit plays. Restarts it self... Make it work.
Flip and Save
by Thomas Smith on 2012/02/24 01:42
I want to be able to flip a play and save it. It is a pain to have to do a play over from scratch to save the play.
Saving Plays
by Kwallis40 on 2012/02/19 21:58
I have to shut down the app each time after I save a play, if I want to save another one. Fix this
Horrible
by jason henderson on 2012/02/19 07:32
Impossible to use on IPhone and it locks up constantly . Give me my money back ! If you are able to create a play you can't even get the email icon to work . Anyone can have a great idea but not know how to implement it ! NOOBS!
Not bad
by Nick3176 on 2012/02/13 16:07
I thought it was good only i wish you could change the route colors so that you could tell what players are doing ex. Red for blitzing orange for zone cover, brown for man coverage, etc
Ditto

Why has my iPad locked on th coachme football. Please answer on how to fix
lockup
by corb1 on 2012/02/04 01:56
why does my computer continually lock up. how do i unlock program?
Okay, needs a lot of work
by NMorse on 2012/01/24 03:42
It is a good app for visualizing some plays but it could be a lot better. The formations always shift when reloading a play and the defense needs to have zone coverage instead of arrows. It's decent but it should be $2. -Nic
Suggestion
by BenjaminGGardner on 2011/11/22 02:30
This would better serve my purposes for coaching if... 1. The lines could be hidden when it animates. Not always, but to have that as an option. 2. There were grid lines, a field layout to use as landmarks. From a coaching standpoint, landmarks are essential. Other than that, it is a great start to an app for coaching football

Good app but there is a few things that can be added to make it solid Email plays Print plays from app Instead of blackboard have options for background (field, whiteboard etc)
It is almost there
by vikespurple on 2011/09/27 20:18
Saving plays is not a finished part of the program. Saved the same play 3x for me EACH time I save the play. The worst part is none of the play is saved except for the offensive line and football which makes the save feature worthless. When trying to save the timer just spins with no indication of the play being saved. My advice to the programmer is to get to work and fix these items and this program would be a winner. For $6 I would expect that. Many coaches from flag to tackle would love to create and email plays to other coaches and friends. Keep working on this so my investment is not wasted and the program is fully functional. Thanks!
Bug but workaround available
by JimmyB777 on 2011/09/15 19:21
Thought i would take a chance and buy anyway thinking the bugs wouldn't apply to me. Unfortunately not the case. However I emailed support and quickly got a response (within an hour). The issue is with saving plays with a person in motion causes a lockup. The workaround is simply to complete the motion route by drawing another route from the tip of the motion route. Support says this workaround won't be required in the next release.
Tons of bugs
by lawdog1971 on 2011/09/14 14:43
I was excited about the potential, but then ran into several bugs that simply make this app worthless. There is no value in this app. It is a waste of money. If they did fix the bugs though, it would be a fantastic app.
Great possibilities, BUT.....
by Joey Ketchum on 2011/09/13 19:11
This app has great possibilities, but has several bugs that make it useless! If these bugs are fixed, this app would be wonderful. But, for now, a complete waste of my money! DO NOT BUY until the bugs are fixed!
Frustrated
by MylasC on 2011/09/13 04:29
The app has potential but it's a long way from being easy to use. The update said that the bugs had been fixed to allow you to save the plays and eliminate the crashes. Neither are true. You can't save the plays, they can't be recalled and each time t You try the app crashes. So far it's a complete disappointment. Hopefully they'll either get it fixed or refund my money!
Not impressed
by Johnny botany on 2011/08/30 11:16
I dl'ed several playbook apps before I spent my money on this one. Needless to say I'm not overly impressed. There is no way to email the plays you create so you can hand out a playbook. I'm running into the same issues that others are reporting when saving plays. The saving grace of this app is the ability to "run" the play. To bad there are no refunds.
Issues with app...
by JYA C1255 on 2011/08/26 20:12
Right now I'm not impressed with this app. I paid for the pro version so I could save my plays, but keep getting an error message. I tried to reach out to support, but when I go to their site even their "contact me" email isn't functioning. Too bad, I thought the app had promise.
Very easy to use
by Gamerkc on 2011/08/26 01:37
This app is incredibly easy to use and is far more useful than the professional software that coaches pay a bundle for. The only missing aspect is the ability to export the formations and plays so that play books or handouts can be easily printed.
Good stuff
by jnkreed18 on 2011/08/20 12:19
Very easy to use. Only complaint is that you have to shake the iPad to erase the board. A simple erase button would be much easier.
Same problems as others.
by Eagleoc on 2011/08/16 14:33
Can't delete plays. Hard to save. Force closes often. Would be great if bugs were fixed, but as of now, I want my money back.
Buggy
by Intercepted28 on 2011/08/16 02:50
Can't delete plays that I screwed up. Will lose formations even after plays save. When switching plays it would be nice if it deleted the old play first instead of stacking on top of itself. Sometimes it also brings up multiple playbooks and won't let me scroll down the plays. Other than that and especially the deleting one it is a great app. Unfortunately until it is patched I can't use the app.

next play
by fbcoachrh on 2011/08/14 19:22
There needs to be a button to go to next play in playbook. I don't want to go to back to playbook to get next play. A simple swipe would do. Also you should be able to create folders in playbook for easier organization.

Frustrating trying to save and delete plays. Can't get delete icon to appear.
Cool App! For Coaching or for fun.
by ahicks324 on 2011/08/12 09:47
Drawing plays up on a chalkboard is great for any football fan. The app is fast and simple enough to use to create an effective offense. Save feature is helpful but I'd like to see an export or print option in future updates so I can print plays out. Nice work Meapps!

Erases players when saving
by imabeamac4life on 2018/05/18 01:21
I created an 11 person offensive play nut when I save it ,it erases my 2 WR. I put them back and click save again then it erases my running backs. If your charging $10 for an app it should work properly
Once was great
by PhatBoogie on 2018/10/16 01:55
Seems to be a completely unsupported app now. Many bugs are killing the usefulness and rendering it unusable.
No support, loaded with bugs, empty promises
by Bob & Angi on 2015/09/14 19:29
Just started using this before this year's season. Drew up some of my team's plays, liked the idea of having the teenage players use this to learn since they are all on they're devices all the time anyway. However, I ended up spending countless hours on my own trying to figure out how to get a team up and running on the network and apps. I waited days for responses to what should have been very easy questions to answer. And when I did get responses, they were canned answers with empty promises. I felt like I was debugging their system for them. I had to apologize to my coaches, players and their parents. It ended up looking like me making empty promises because I could not deliver on what coachme claimed it could do. Examples of the type of support I got: Was told there was a drop down menus where there weren't Was told there was a faster better version coming soon fixing all the bugs I was fining. Never came out. Before finally giving up, I pleaded for some last minute help. Nothing. You'd think during football season, they would have round the clock support. Nope. Like the concept, but will not using coachme in the future. I am now looking for providers that do what they claim and have good support. I wanted to put this review out for coaches thinking about using coachme right now to save you from what I went through.
Best football app- period!!
by ocalafan on 2012/11/22 03:53
I'm a high school coach in Florida and we started using this app over the summer- now in the second week of playoffs I can tell you that this has made "scout" team preparation so much easier and communication between our coaches on what we want to run much easier then just using paint or power point- very much worth the money for this app- - and the new email update is great, if you want a app made by people who CARE, then buy this app- I have not seen customer service like theirs with any app on this store - thank you coachme football!!
Outstanding App
by 1NDfan77 on 2013/05/01 02:33
As a youth coach I'm constantly looking for ways to reduce my prep time and for ways to make instruction more meaningful. We only get 6 hours per week with our kids and this app makes sense. The kids these days play so many games that they probably understand this better than a static paper play card. If you are a youth coach, or High School, this is a must have app. I have used Playmaker pro, playbook pro, and coaches office playbook suite, this was the easiest to use and took less than 5 minutes to orient myself to operate it efficiently!

Best App to date
by DMook on 2012/09/09 18:39
This play book app is outstanding. With a few more features it could also be a killer scouting app. I was able to scout an entire game (solo - with wife) with this app. It may not be designed for that, but it really does a nice job of charting plays and formations. Anyone who doesn't give this app 5 stars compared to what's out there is kidding themselves. This App is well designed and can be a great teaching tool for plays! Well worth the $8!
My plays are gone..
by Cschuten on 2013/10/06 18:07
I did the latest update and all of my plays are gone now... I am giving you 5 starts because the app is great. If this is not fixed, I will have to change that to 1 star. Without confidence that my plays are not going to get lost the app is worth nothing. AND you will need to refund my money. You have a real good thing here but will lose it all if you do not fix this problem. Thank you
Really Amazing!
by Kai Hong on 2012/04/13 05:57
This is an absolutely powerful tactics chalkboard for the football coaches! U can simulate all kind of tactics and see how they work. What's more, it also benefits football players in a way that they can try their thoughts on the tactics any time at any place, which will defenitely improve their football mind! Such a great app! A little flaw is the instability which the developer should try to fix,
Very good
by Nicknameistakenchooseanother1 on 2012/06/12 16:16
Been using for a while now. Only froze twice. Great for designing plays. No more scrap paper everywhere or wasted printer ink. It could be better with the ability to put plays in folders. You can save plays as a screenshot pic, transfer, then print. I've also designed drills with it. You must have iPad though. Dont bother with phone it's too small. Not everything you'd want but it is worth it.

Play sharing needed
by DreWright on 2012/08/19 15:38
This app is a creative thought and could be really great with some enhancements. Doesn't work well in iPhone which is why sharing between devices is needed. The email and photo gallery option is cool but if we could create, save, and share the animation that would make this $8 app much more intriguing.
Best app but no support
by Some guy 9999 on 2015/11/03 16:03
I've had this app for years and it's by far the best app for coaching out there. The only problem is that there is no way to report bugs. I haven't had a serious issue with bugs ever until now which is why I'm still giving this 5 stars

Poor update
by BigLou44 on 2013/10/09 12:59
Loved this app until the update. Crashes all the time now and lost several plays right after saving them. Routes stick on the screen and won't erase. The D was in letters only and was a great contrast to the O players before. Now they are in circles just like the O. When in black & white or emailed it's hard to tell the difference between O & D characters. Please go back to the old one so I can change my review back to 5 stars.

Overall best playbook app yet
by Kfoster79 on 2012/08/05 22:13
I used the lite version and with in hours I knew I wanted to full version. This app is easy to use and would be 5 stars if I could export the whole playbook as a PDF not just one play at a time as an email or screen cap.
too bad

I am an amateur football player. we do football like hobby. we don't have much time for echt other now we can use the app make Tactical guidance and send to them then we can Discuss it online This should beperfect app for me, workt great on ipad, but i don't know how, it can't start on iphone, too bad
Great App for coaches
by Peete91 on 2013/01/13 20:13

Doesn't seem to work on my iPhone 4
by Sodaguy on 2012/04/13 03:26
I thought this app looked great for coming up with and saving plays. In reality it works very slowly and is extremely unresponsive. You can't move anything around without trying 5-10 times. I think it is far more frustrating than useful. The chalkboard feature seems to work ok.
Overall Good
by Another tired reader on 2013/02/25 23:19
Would be helpful to: send whole playbook via email, have access to some historical play books for reference. Great features, but still has some bugs. Keep up the good work!
next play
