Excellent play design app
by APK Falcons Coach on 2020/01/24 16:28
I use this for 5v5 flag for an 8U team. Love the easy to use play editor and the ability to change shapes, i.e. the kid getting the ball is the star shape on the play. The export to pdf feature is so key and allows up to 9 plays on one page for in game play calling. I haven’t used the print to wristband yet but I’m sure that’s great as well. One of my only criticisms is that when you go to edit a route you have to click the circle representing the player- however it’s near impossible to do this without moving the circle. Sort if a minor complaint but I end up routinely relocating my dots. Overall though an awesome app with great support.
Great app, worth the money.
by Sneakypete75 on 2020/01/06 17:28
I use the app for 5v5 flag football. It is easy to use and draw up plays within minutes. I will see something during a game on tv, and create a play similar for our team. Although, I have a couple of recommendations. I began using this at the beginning of the season. I am not sure if I am navigating properly, so please assist if I am not. 1. When in the view mode of the play, it would be nice to swipe through the plays right or left. 2. When in the Playbook mode, it would be nice to color coordinate the plays. This would help while scrolling quickly to identify specific plays (ie. goal line, long yardage, trick plays). 3. Also, when in Playbook mode, it would be nice to not be able to edit the plays by removing the “i”. Sometimes when scrolling through, I like to go fast however I accidentally hit the “i” and have to cancel out of it. Maybe place the “i” in the play on the top taskbar, once it is opened? There are two buttons which move you back to the playbook, maybe one can be replaced by the “i”. The app is great and thanks for putting it together. It’s well worth the one time fee of $15.
Not worth your time
by TristenQB on 2019/12/19 02:36
This app is buggy, doesn’t share the full playbook, and doesn’t even show me the correct number of plays for my teammates. You’re better off drawing them yourself
Bigger Field Or Smaller Player Icons
by Maddenfan4life2016 on 2019/12/13 17:21
The overall workings and idea of the app are great, but field is too small to show any advanced plays/play art. Need to either be able to turn your phone sideways for a larger field and or be able to make the player icons smaller to have more room for play design.
Best app for your kids!
by JT_33 on 2019/10/15 19:25
This app has been the most efficient way for us to show our kids the plays in the huddle. We have built an entire playbook out for ever game. We take the iPad to the huddle to show the play. No more plays on paper!!!
Great app, but i don’t like the price for unlimited plays.
by gcdub eu IM SO MADD on 2019/10/12 20:28
This is an awesome app, but the price is too high. I don’t like that we have to play 15 LITERAL BUCKS just for unlimited FRICKIN’ plays. Please just let us have unlimited plays no matter what dude!
Making more plays
by chicagCrazy52 on 2019/10/12 00:20
I like the system but do not like you have to pay to make a bigger play book
Ok
by summercelbreation on 2019/10/07 04:43
How do I draw a route lol
Fakes - no present formations
by Coach SteveG on 2019/09/13 19:41
Very good app, but needs a way to indicate fakes. Also a way to draw where the player is going after a hand-off or a fake. Also multiple passing options. Thanks.
Thank you!
by Anthony...123456789 on 2019/09/13 19:10
Thank you for such a great app. I’ve been using this app for years. Hands down its the best football play design app for flag football.
More efficient printing please
by Gwilli42 on 2019/09/08 10:37
I really love the app overall. I just wish that it would print multiple wristplays her page. It is a waste to have one band per page. Also, it would be nice if didn’t have to repurchase if I take the app off my iPad. The 90 day limit is a bit annoying. Other than that this really is 5 star app.
Great program great support
by champ coack k on 2019/08/28 01:53
Buy the Pro, well worth it, you’ll be an expert in 15 minutes, easy to use, tutorials to learn and quick helpful support!
Wish it had more than 8 players
by Spazzo13 on 2019/08/16 16:54
I coach a 9 on 9. Want to use the app but will need to find one with 9 players
Suggested Improvements!
by xXsamburgerXx on 2019/08/13 11:58
i absolutely love the app and i’ve been using it for the past 3 years. and it has helped me considerably when communicating concepts with the Special Olympics Flag Football community. some areas i would like to see improved: differentiating between pre-snap motions and an offensive shift. also i would like to have the ability to watch a play design unfold...like, draw it up then press play and watch how the little animated players execute what drew up. Thank You, Samuel Benitez
Best flag app
by Hambone5252 on 2019/06/30 01:12
This is by far the best flag app on the market. As soon as I started using this app my teams went on to win 4 championships in a row. It makes you a more efficient coach and allows for an easy to understand layout for the kids. I use this to print out wristbands and change plays on the fly. Great app and I look forward to whatever else this developer comes up with in the future! John H.
Great app
by mikeanthony2010 on 2019/06/20 15:23
Has everything I’m looking for as a first yr youth coach. It made presentations in the huddle so much easier and the kids understood their positions and roles because of the color coding. No confusions. Definitely made my first practice running these plays super smooth. Can’t wait for our first game we’re gonna dominate.
Can you extend distance
by mc coach on 2019/05/12 19:21
Can you move the center line forward so you can get more room behind the center and qb ?
Issues
by Eddie Mike on 2019/05/05 16:11
Great app to draw up plays. I am having issues signing up for account so I can send the playbook to the other coach
Great app for the most part
by sharp1993 on 2019/01/27 02:12
The concept of this app is awesome the only downfall would be logos to choose from and every time I go to draw a route it seems to want to move the player instead also it’s difficult to curve or alter the route the way you want it but BY FAR better than anything else I’ve seen or tried mainly because this one offers 5 on 5 great job I would recommend working on making it easier to curve routes
Highly recommended
by Tj121989 on 2018/10/26 17:12
It’s a great app with great support. I’m gonna spread the word to our whole league.
Really
by Lizzm2279 on 2018/10/06 19:29
Who would be stupid enough to pay 15 dollars to make plays? My flag football team can make better plays on paper.
Great job!
by Beedzee on 2018/09/26 16:08
When I needed help, Jeremy was very attentive, professional, and handled my situation. Thanks!!
Great Product
by dhb1976! on 2018/09/18 20:31
I coach in a 7-on-7 flag league. This app has been great for drawing up plays. Very easy and intuitive. It also gives you the ability to add a roster and label positions by player names—very helpful for younger kids who can get confused by a play sheet of just X’s and O’s, without names. Also, very easy to print out plays, which I was doing at first, but I took my iPad to use at a game for the first time this weekend, and I found that to be much better than using paper. Gives you much more flexibility to change positions around and draw up new plays. The kids were able to see the plays on the iPad in the bright sun. The only thing I was worried about (which doesn’t have anything to do with the app) was that my iPad would overheat—it was very hot outside. Luckily, that didn’t happen, even though the iPad was pretty warm (I even put it in the drink cooler at halftime). Anyways, this is a great app and well worth the money, imo.
BEST, but could use Improvements
by David Dcb man! on 2018/09/05 01:10
SO MUCH BETTER than the expensive web-based playmaker and EASIER to use! It's $15 for the app, not $15/Mo. Amazing value! You can make plays anywhere whenever you think of one! Print wrist inserts right from your phone! Easy to learn. Negatives --flipped plays get aren't always perfectly rendered. --and what shows on tile isn't always what's underneath. --GET RID OF THAT HUGE LOGO printed on wristbands printouts. You can't even flip the page over and reprint because of it. --can't print 2 wrist play sheets inserts with bottom borders touching each other. (Would save cutting time when you're cutting and inserting 20 of these at a time🤯) Wish list-- --ability to draw lines at 90 and 45 degrees. -customizable play numbers (not just 1-8). Less confusing for little kids. -be able to upload personal playbook mascots -be able to have a player have 2/3 separate line styles for special plays. Great product though, honestly. You guys should advertise on line with some good keywords. I've been doing this for years and struggling. That other playmaker is more difficult to use and so overpriced. This app is the real deal.
Perfect for flag football
by MatzFlagfiotball on 2018/07/24 00:03
Just got into this app. It is my first year coaching, and the app is already going to be a life saver. To be able to put kids names on routes and to share the playbook with different devices and coaches, is a dream come true. I can’t wait to start the season
Great
by Pkong on 2018/04/27 01:32
Got everything working smoothly again. Enjoying the app
72 hour review
by Claws Coach on 2018/04/24 08:20
My initial review, is this is an awesome app. Definitely worthy of 5 stars. Love the customizable positions, rosters, colors, etc. so far, the only issue I've been having is the failure to send playbook as PDF to entire team (approx 9-12) emails. Stays on sending screen for over 5 minutes. The app has crashed about 3 times, and had a couple hang ups. I am using an iPad4 and maxed out on iOS 10.3.3. I will attribute these crashes to my old battery in my device.
Real good app!
by gflash2011 on 2018/03/09 19:05
I have used the app extensively to record plays and schemes. In general, the app is functional and it has been improved recently for speed and efficiency. Some suggestions I have: Ability to edit zone assignments (place a rectangular zone instead of defaulting to a circle all the time) Better functionality when adjusting the size of a “zone” assignment (can be very unresponsive at times) Ability to “float” the line of scrimmage anywhere on screen to maximize space for the play instead of defaulting into the center of the screen. Adjustable yardage indicator on the side of the screen to help explain length of routes and assignments. All in all, still a very good app to use that I’ve found to be helpful.
Fun to use, but I could use more room
by Jmcethorn on 2018/02/08 14:33
When creating offensive plays I would like to have more room in that backfield. Is there a way to move the line of scrimmage? I would love it if the line of scrimmage could be moved up so 3/4 of my screen is the backfield instead of just half.
Generally good but print could be better
by Bdrptl on 2018/01/28 05:22
I paid the expensive $15 (for this type of app and functionality, the market cap is more like $9.99) and generally am happy. One thing I don't like is the wasted paper... My wrist playbooks have the typical cover plastic page where the first set of plays should show on one side, then the next set of plays should be printed on the fold of the underside of the page but I can't get this app to accommodate. So I have to print two pages, mostly because the footer is much too large, and then cut all sections to then put them into the playbooks.
Great app!!
by hansum80 on 2017/10/23 17:08
I was looking for a way to create plays for a youth flag team. Once I watched the tutorials it made it pretty simple to customize plays. I would definitely recommend this app to others.
Big Help!
by LawDawg22001166 on 2017/10/09 05:32
I was trying to find an app or program to create my flag football plays on. This app does everything I need plus more. So easy to use. It's simple and to the point. It could use a couple upgrades here and there but what app can't. I created the plays and printed them out to fit my teams wrist play books. Took my team to the next level. Worth the money to go PRO.
Glitch City With This App
by Vancebo1 on 2017/10/08 12:48
It sure has promise though. The patterns randomly disappear. That's frustrating when you are in the middle of coaching. I try restarting the app and my tablet but I never know when they will reappear. I would rate it 3 stars if that could get fixed. What it needs is the ability to illustrate patterns in two different colors from the same player. The printing and sharing works well.
Great app but needs cross platform
by Bretta83 on 2017/09/26 18:08
I almost purchased the app but I double checked to make sure it was on android so my friends could access it but I couldn't find it. Edit-I ended up purchasing the app because there is very little options out there and I must say I'm very happy with the ability print out the plays for the QB wrist band. They have plenty of sizes to fit any wristband. Super easy to create formations/plays. Would recommend to everyone.
Great App
by J-Girl-01 on 2017/09/25 19:37
I've been using this app for 3 seasons now. Being able to share the playbook with coaches and players is a plus. I like being able to print out wristband sized play sheets for my QB and D play caller. Just makes the job of coaching easier.
The only app I'll use for coaching
by DRjcDPT on 2017/06/21 21:47
Great app! I've been very pleased with the ease of use with this app. Just waiting for some things like block and release/Multiple Pitching
This is extremely good for a free app
by allllllllllee on 2017/04/29 05:54
Searching a title like this, I was extorting some bad free app with pop up ads every 0.5 seconds, and terrible graphics with barely any options. But this... this is good
Amazing
by Coachwj on 2017/04/03 22:49
🔥🔥🔥🔥
This is the app I have been looking for!
by PWChongo on 2017/02/11 14:04
For flag football, I have always look for an app that would make entering my plays easy. In addition, I wanted to have something the kids could see easily on the iPad and that I could print as well. This app allows you to do that and whole lot more. Drawing plays is easy. Changing positions is easy. Duplicating plays is easy. The whole thing is just easy to use. Then you can mail yourself your playbook or send to your coaches. It allows you to print wrist plays for your kids and everything else. The only draw back is that the app is a little pricey but helk...these guys thought of everything and the app is well worth it.
Wow....great app
by Tone Capone67 on 2016/11/14 02:04
This app is great. While coaching 9-10 youth flag football.. I use this during practice and at games to quickly set the plays up for the team. i use a iPad mini and the plays are big enough for the team to quickly see to start the plays. Making on the fly changes or mapping out a new play on the fly is so very easy. MUST HAVE APP.
Good, but needs polishing
by Grid, zones, animation on 2016/09/25 22:30
I like this app but wish it had the following: -Community plays and play books. -Add grid to play design screen. -Add snap to grid option. -Add animation. -On defense zones, add oval and square option to further define the home zone.
Amazing App, GREAT SUPPORT!!!
by LORD_APOC on 2016/09/05 22:48
Awesome playbook maker! I have used it for 5 seasons and it works perfect!!! Also to the ability to forward your playbook to another coach makes this app that much better!!!!!
Update
by KennyKingBoy on 2016/07/19 00:41
Great job guys great job with the update great job!!
Gators Approved!!
by Gatordad99 on 2016/05/22 12:50
Wish I knew about this app 3 years ago! Easy to use, easy to share with players and coaches. Kids love designing their own plays. Would like the ability to choose # of plays per panel (4 plays, bigger picture), ability to add secondary route in different color and add my own mascot from existing photos (team request).
Great app for creating and sharing plays,
by dspino123 on 2016/01/22 18:36
I've used this for 3 flag football seasons so far. Easy to use collaborate with assistant coaches. Easy to print great wrist cards (and to email the PDF to parents to print). Suggestions for improvement: add the ability to add text (key words/notes) right to the play diagram so that it's printed on the wrist card too, also add the ability to add a 2nd route option in a different line color (currently it's only one route per player)- with this I'd be able to fit a heck of a lot more on one play card.
Great app
by Hambone76997 on 2015/09/26 00:48
Great app for creating football plays. Very easy to use. The print out for the wristbands are excellent!
Please add 9 vs 9
by DEADITES23 on 2015/08/19 02:05
Need 9 vs 9
Love it
by Dhensch on 2015/08/15 16:37
I coach middle school kids and this made it super easy to create the plays, print them for the wristbands and share the playbook with the coaches. I was up and running, creating plays in seconds. The tutorials are fantastic and the customer service is quick and responsive!
Route Tree
by Destro1914 on 2015/07/29 02:25
Can you add the ability to make route trees. This would make the app perfect.
Great app
by Footballfla2015 on 2015/07/24 16:53
Best football playmaking app available. Great features and user friendly.
Love it
by Herbrandson on 2015/07/02 23:21
This apps saves us sooooo much time in the huddle. The kids love it!
Great tool
by Happy Dad Coach on 2015/03/28 02:32
Easy to learn. Flexibility to customize plays for your league's rules is great. Labeling and color coding the positions allowed 3rd graders to understand and run plays in our first practice with mostly first time players. I'm very impressed and I recommend the Pro version. The support is also very responsive and helpful. I think you'll have a lot of fun and success with this tool.
Great App
by av8rdude007 on 2015/03/27 17:08
As a flag football coach for 10-11 year olds I was searching for an easy to use app that would help me start running plays as fast as I could. The fact that you can color code players and print wrist bands can have your team practicing plays on the very first practice. Very well thought out. Thanks.
Great App love the design and the intuitive controls!
by JRHughes on 2015/03/27 00:23
Great App! love the design and the intuitive controls! Print options sheets and wristbands great!
Frustrated
by Act1995 on 2015/03/18 02:29
Bought this app and it mentions you can name all the players, which is great. However, if you create a different play for another group of kids and change the names, it changes the names on the first play you created as well. So basically, you can't name the players if you have any subs because it constantly keeps changing the names back and forth. If I would have known that, I would have never purchased.
Great app! Very easy!
by AdCat14 on 2015/01/18 17:53
I use this for simple 6-6 youth (11-13 yo) plays and keeps my roster and rotations organized too! Just waiting for update to print names on plays then this will be 5-star.
The best app backed by responsive customer service.
by Barry Hersh on 2015/01/13 23:58
I've been using this app for 3 seasons. It's terrific. Even better are the people behind the app. I've contacted them several times to recommend new features. Very responsive and they actually coach youth football.
Cooler than a coaching clip board
by PJtrades on 2015/01/06 20:12
This is a great app for coaching youth flag football. Just getting ready to start our season so it hasn't been game tested yet, but is easy to use and a great way to draw up and test plays. The ability to print out playbooks and wristband cards is huge! We will most likely not use the iPad at games because of the difficulty seeing the screen in the bright sun and because the weather is unpredictable. There are only a couple of features I would add. Because this is for flag football, it should have a way to add a route to someone who has pitched the ball (ie, the QB pitches to HB and then runs a route himself) The other feature this needs is the ability to show hand-offs and fakes.
No better playbook maker!!!
by Peckin1 on 2014/11/01 00:05
This app just can’t be beat! One of the greatest apps I have ever had. And there customer service is unheard of for a standalone application on a mobile device. Email or Social media they are quick to answer and provide guides on how to use their product. Simply amazing work guys!!! Keep up the good work.
Fantastic!
by Jvhinely on 2014/10/24 04:47
Excellent app, it really came in handy this football season. Very easy to use, easy for kids to see and understand plays. Lots of tools for designing plays]
Conveniently creative
by Dubba dub on 2014/10/10 00:20
I recently had a 5-hour flight to Los Angeles and I was able to create about 25 new plays for our youth flag football team. The "duplicate" and "duplicate and flip" feature make it very easy to create multiple formations and switches. I cannot wait to share with our coaches.
Very well done!
by Travaggie on 2014/09/24 21:17
Easy to use, features that make sense and are well thought out. Must have for any flag football player or coach!
Really Great App
by Sydshobob on 2014/09/24 18:39
The new version of FF Playmaker is great. Does what I want quickly and easily.
Great App 4.5 stars
by pkd16 on 2014/09/06 21:30
Great app on many levels. Organization, multiple play books, and categories are awesome. The interface is very well thought out and intuitive. It's so easy you don't need the videos. Couple of feature requests that would help: 1) be able to select multiple categories. This would help better organize a narrow down plays when searching. 2) Reduce size of the dots 25-50%, or have user defined scale option. The dots are way to huge on the ipad. No way to show a true spread out formation. 3) have a toggle for the player screen on left. Wasted space that could be used for drawing plays. Thanks!
Life Saver
by Ars123321 on 2014/08/08 12:45
Life saver doesn't really even begin to describe this app. Plays are easy to design and change on the fly - even in the huddle on a game winning drive at one point. This app keeps me organized and my players focused and has helped our teams over the last 4 years win 3 championships. I generally stay away from expensive apps but this one is worth every penny.
Great App. Best Play Calling App out there
by Lubaiga on 2014/03/31 14:48
Fast simple. Great for in game use and pregame preparation. Field could be made bigger for easier play diagramming, but for 99% of plays its fine. Great app don't even bother looking at the other ones
Fantastic App
by Harry Keller on 2014/03/24 04:30
Awesome app for making plays. And great customer service! They answered my questions within 24 hours of sending the email.
Great App
by devojose on 2014/03/19 22:01
I was given an opportunity to coach my brother's flag football team along with some of my friends and this app led us first time kid coaches against a group of experienced adults to a close semi-final loss. The app makes our plays easy to make and easy for the kids to understand. The wristband print allowed us to implement a high tempo offense that kept teams off guard. And plays were easily able to be called from the sidelines as I called out defenses and the others called out offensive plays. Overall good app maybe an option to add the option toss
Great app for new coaches
by Kellyander30 on 2014/03/19 20:13
This is a great app, especially if you like to draw up your own plays.
Exceptional Youth 5 v 5 App
by Kellym00 on 2014/01/20 00:19
I've used the PRO version of this app in two seasons of 6 & 7 year old 5v5 flag football. For offensive play calling it is exceptional. I can diagram virtually any play - reverses, options, motion, etc. - quickly, easily, and (most importantly) understandably for the kids. We huddle, they look at the play, find their name, and instantly know where to line up and what to do. Making personnel changes on the fly is also painless - just drag and drop any name on the roster. And if I can't make a practice or a game I can email the play book to my assistant coach to print out and use. I haven't found it as useful on defense but that side of the ball is typically less complicated and the benefits of this app aren't as important. The cost made me hesitate but I have absolutely gotten my money's worth. Solid tool, good purchase.
Great App, but needs improvements
by Tbbucs70 on 2014/01/17 02:54
Love the app, but it needs a few updates. 1). The player list should be removed from the field of view, to utilize the entire space on iPad. 2). The options for player coverage, direction, and routes should be the same for defense as offense. Many more options available for offense. 3). The line of scrimmage should have the option to move it up or down for more space. 4). Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I can't get the plays for the wrist band to send with the green field for printing, even though it shows it's in green format. Other than that, very easy
great app
by tim_schu on 2013/12/05 00:03
Great app for the money. Works awesome for youth 5v5 (can color code rather than typing in names of players) and getting ready to try it out with adult 8v8. Being able to share the playbook and import it from other users is saving a lot of time, which is a nice new addition.
Game Changer
by Jeff7602 on 2013/10/17 07:45
This app is great! It has helped me so much in being organized for the start of the season. The kids love seeing their names on the iPad, so they seem to pay better attention than using traditional play cards.
Must have app
by Jeffypoohbear on 2013/10/16 21:31
This is a must have app for any flag football coach. Capabilities are endless. I love the wristband play-card generator!
This App won't guarantee a win, but it sure helps!
by Fighting Irish Coach on 2013/10/01 20:13
I have been coaching flag football for 3rd and 4th graders for the past three years. The first year, we didn't win a game and I tried to use printed plays in a notebook. Last year I found this app and used it. We haven't lost a game since I have used this to run our offense. Our team won the championship last year and we are 4-0 so far this season. The kids love it. They see their name on the screen and know exactly what to do when they break the huddle. The app will not make your kids run faster or catch the ball every time, but it gives them the confidence to execute their role on the team, because they aren't second guessing themselves on the line of scrimmage. if you coach flag football and don't utilize this app, you are crazy.
An excellent way to communicate with the team
by Buckeye2911 on 2013/09/27 02:03
I have used this app for two years and it is great. It allows for fast play creation and changes on the fly. We send out the game plays to the team for the week and it saves time at practice. Excellent app.
Love it!
by MrJake13 on 2013/09/19 21:25
I'm in my third year of coaching flag football and I love the Flag Football Playmaker app. It's great for designing plays and for teaching the kids their routes/duties on each play. Kids today are "visual learners" and this app has saved me valuable time during practice and in the huddle. Also, if you have a problem the support team is very prompt and has always answered my questions.
Play book
by MazeWood on 2013/09/17 19:33
Cannot get notes to print, cannot get the wrist band info to PDF and email correctly, it just sits their and stalls. Like the overall concept but for the price not being able to print PDF wrist band and playroom notes is a waste of time and investment !!!!
Can't print play notes?
by xx_VH_xx on 2013/09/15 22:01
Would be 5 stars if. You could share/print play notes at the bottom of each play.
Incredible tool!
by ntgeek on 2013/09/11 01:36
This is simply a great, easy to use tool. This has made coaching my flag football team a lot easier. The developer has been extremely responsive to questions and suggestions. I would (and am) recommend this to anybody who is coaching as a must have tool.
Crashes
by Magnum PI 88 on 2013/08/21 03:20
This App works great but crashes every time I try to delete Pass Plays when trying to edit the Offensive Plays categories. I'm trying to do this because I'm unable to prioritize the categories list. S I was going to delete and then create new ones in the order I want. Not the best option, just the only one. If you guys could fix this, then this would be great. Would also like to have quarterback lines go squiggly in more then one direction to show a double fake, then pass.
Love it!
by Teejayitt on 2013/07/20 05:58
My only suggestion is. That my team that I'm making arm bands for only needs 3 plays per row which would make a total of 6 plays on a wrist band play sheet. Could you make the possibility of having those 3 plays stretch across the play sheet, filling in all possible space rather than leaving that blank spot on the side? Till then 4 stars.
Ok so far
by TVAL on 2013/07/14 03:00
Looks good but missing notes pages with plays and I have not yet figured out how to add defensive players to my offensive plays to get placement just right. Get me that info or fix it and the money spent might be worth it.
Expensive
by havasutexan on 2013/03/03 17:56
Great app, but very expensive to upgrade to the pro version. The option of flipping a play is great, but one thing to help improve the app would be the ability to make an exact copy of a play. Then you could flip the play and save it in the opposite direction.
Well...
by ShadowNYY on 2013/01/16 13:58
This app is great; I haven't found a better playbook app yet. But $15 for the full version is absurd! The free version does not give you enough options to use long-term, and the full verisimilitude is extremely overpriced. 99 cents, $1.99 I can see. But $15 is just ridiculous. Have a sale or something!
Please show position names when sharing
by roborlando on 2013/01/14 06:54
The app is great, but it would be nice when emailing or sharing plays to be able show/ print out the roster names and assignments for the various players both offense and defense. This is baffling to me, but it's still a nice app. Use it for 8 year olds and they love it!
Animation
by MISIAMSECOND on 2013/01/04 06:20
All it is missing is animation. There should be a preview mode to show how the plays should be ran. That would take this app over the top.
Very Good, Keep Going
by DHB12 on 2012/12/15 07:16
Great app, but keep going. So much more you could including curved lines, iCloud or Dropbox sync for multiple device sync, multiple templates to save, ability to copy or duplicate plays, reverse plays without flipping positions (e.g. wide receivers), more print options, more share options, etc, etc. Love the app, but would love to see more.
Really good!!!!!
by Jspearson1 on 2012/12/05 23:01
I just upraded to pro and i am really enjoying it. The last dot uprade really brought a lot of needed tweaks. Few suggestions: 1. There should base formations for each set playbook, not just one for offense and defense. 2. I wish there was a way to share your plays through other applications other than just email, ex. Facebook, twitter, group me. 3. On offense or defense, being able to draw up a play with both sides of the ball would really great. I play quarterback and being able to get my teammates on the same page has been a challenge for me. With this app it made it so much easier. Thanks
Very good
by Finzrule on 2012/11/28 22:15
Only 2 problems: you can't draw curved shapes and I'm having trouble with some of my playbooks not getting emailed fully... Besides that, I love this app, well worth the $15 upgrade
Just Okay - WAY Overpriced
by Richard - USA on 2012/11/05 01:45
The Ap is okay - why can't you draw in curve shapes ? $15 is 10 too much -
Great App for Flag Football!
by Tiny zoo rocks 222 on 2012/10/21 22:21
So far so good!!! Love it! Easy to use, and the developers really care too (they responded immediately to an email question I had....). Their FB page shows a new update coming out for wristbands and colors- excellent addition, just waiting to see it! Keep up the upgrades!!! Thanks, 5v5 coach
Great base product
by Masterzach on 2012/10/17 19:00
Needs few key added features: 1) ability to copy/paste - need to be able copy made play to use as base for next one made 2) drag and drop - moving a play from one category of play to next 3) text entry -- be able to place anywhere - under/over a pattern to give it a name or yardage distance 4) ability to turn on yardage markers ( possibly dotted lines) that denote 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 yards from line of scrimmage - option to include when printing 5) all text added -- needs to print 6) option to use multiple color options for routes - that can match the color of the player circle Expensive for base product. Expecting added features Thanks for great start !!!
Agree with review 20 plus.....
by Alllfootball on 2012/10/10 15:19
I agree with points 1,2,5,6 in review 20. Also if you can add the ability to insert editable positions like LG into the circles that today have X,Y,Z. This would be ideal. Today I have to use roster to add position data then there is no option to print it with the plays. So if you can add either way it would be great. Please bring on theses fixes before the end of our season. Thanks
Wow!!!
by Misunderstood ConQueror on 2012/10/06 19:05
What a resource this is!! Looking forward to using this app during our upcoming season. For all those people harping about this not having 11 men available, this is a flag football app!
Good app
by Mo funny on 2012/09/28 14:28
I like this app a lot. Not only to draw up plays, but play calling on game day. In addition to rounded routes, I would LOVE to see the ability to customize rosters for each category. It is awesome that you can customize the order of the plays in category without changing the overall order (all offensive plays). The makes scripting your plays easy. If the app could also save a particular roster in each category, I wouldn't have to adjust on the fly at the end of each quarter. We play 2 halves, but I try to substitute at the half way point in each half, at a dead ball. I have created 4 categories (1st Q, 2nd Q, etc.) and have picked specific plays for the players playing that quarter. Without calling a timeout, I'll have to frantically drag new names to positions while calling the play in the huddle. If this change could be made, I'd give this 5 stars. Thanks.
Good app
by Bandbfawson on 2012/09/27 02:08
Good app, great for creating, but there is one issue. When dragging player names over on a position it effectively changes that player for the position in every other play as well. Hope that gets fixed, but this was a good buy.
Not bad coule be better.
by FlagFootball on 2012/09/24 00:36
So far I'm making do. Twice now the app has closed and I've lost plays that I had previously saved. Besides that I like the ability to draw out customs lines. Would be nice if you could curve them without having to make 5 or 6 straight lines. Colors would be nice too as well as the option to show an option, more then one route ( like one line splitting into 2 or a block that goes into a route. Everything else is great.
11players PLEASE
by er1ckr519 on 2012/09/22 01:26
Please make an 11 player appl...would love to bring my iPad to the game and show PWee's how is done. Keep up the good work. Thank you.
Great app, worth the money.
by Sneakypete75 on 2020/01/06 17:28
I use the app for 5v5 flag football. It is easy to use and draw up plays within minutes. I will see something during a game on tv, and create a play similar for our team. Although, I have a couple of recommendations. I began using this at the beginning of the season. I am not sure if I am navigating properly, so please assist if I am not. 1. When in the view mode of the play, it would be nice to swipe through the plays right or left. 2. When in the Playbook mode, it would be nice to color coordinate the plays. This would help while scrolling quickly to identify specific plays (ie. goal line, long yardage, trick plays). 3. Also, when in Playbook mode, it would be nice to not be able to edit the plays by removing the “i”. Sometimes when scrolling through, I like to go fast however I accidentally hit the “i” and have to cancel out of it. Maybe place the “i” in the play on the top taskbar, once it is opened? There are two buttons which move you back to the playbook, maybe one can be replaced by the “i”. The app is great and thanks for putting it together. It’s well worth the one time fee of $15.
Great Product
by dhb1976! on 2018/09/18 20:31
I coach in a 7-on-7 flag league. This app has been great for drawing up plays. Very easy and intuitive. It also gives you the ability to add a roster and label positions by player names—very helpful for younger kids who can get confused by a play sheet of just X’s and O’s, without names. Also, very easy to print out plays, which I was doing at first, but I took my iPad to use at a game for the first time this weekend, and I found that to be much better than using paper. Gives you much more flexibility to change positions around and draw up new plays. The kids were able to see the plays on the iPad in the bright sun. The only thing I was worried about (which doesn’t have anything to do with the app) was that my iPad would overheat—it was very hot outside. Luckily, that didn’t happen, even though the iPad was pretty warm (I even put it in the drink cooler at halftime). Anyways, this is a great app and well worth the money, imo.
BEST, but could use Improvements
by David Dcb man! on 2018/09/05 01:10
SO MUCH BETTER than the expensive web-based playmaker and EASIER to use! It's $15 for the app, not $15/Mo. Amazing value! You can make plays anywhere whenever you think of one! Print wrist inserts right from your phone! Easy to learn. Negatives --flipped plays get aren't always perfectly rendered. --and what shows on tile isn't always what's underneath. --GET RID OF THAT HUGE LOGO printed on wristbands printouts. You can't even flip the page over and reprint because of it. --can't print 2 wrist play sheets inserts with bottom borders touching each other. (Would save cutting time when you're cutting and inserting 20 of these at a time🤯) Wish list-- --ability to draw lines at 90 and 45 degrees. -customizable play numbers (not just 1-8). Less confusing for little kids. -be able to upload personal playbook mascots -be able to have a player have 2/3 separate line styles for special plays. Great product though, honestly. You guys should advertise on line with some good keywords. I've been doing this for years and struggling. That other playmaker is more difficult to use and so overpriced. This app is the real deal.
Great app for the most part
by sharp1993 on 2019/01/27 02:12
The concept of this app is awesome the only downfall would be logos to choose from and every time I go to draw a route it seems to want to move the player instead also it’s difficult to curve or alter the route the way you want it but BY FAR better than anything else I’ve seen or tried mainly because this one offers 5 on 5 great job I would recommend working on making it easier to curve routes
Excellent play design app
by APK Falcons Coach on 2020/01/24 16:28
I use this for 5v5 flag for an 8U team. Love the easy to use play editor and the ability to change shapes, i.e. the kid getting the ball is the star shape on the play. The export to pdf feature is so key and allows up to 9 plays on one page for in game play calling. I haven’t used the print to wristband yet but I’m sure that’s great as well. One of my only criticisms is that when you go to edit a route you have to click the circle representing the player- however it’s near impossible to do this without moving the circle. Sort if a minor complaint but I end up routinely relocating my dots. Overall though an awesome app with great support.
Generally good but print could be better
by Bdrptl on 2018/01/28 05:22
I paid the expensive $15 (for this type of app and functionality, the market cap is more like $9.99) and generally am happy. One thing I don't like is the wasted paper... My wrist playbooks have the typical cover plastic page where the first set of plays should show on one side, then the next set of plays should be printed on the fold of the underside of the page but I can't get this app to accommodate. So I have to print two pages, mostly because the footer is much too large, and then cut all sections to then put them into the playbooks.
72 hour review
by Claws Coach on 2018/04/24 08:20
My initial review, is this is an awesome app. Definitely worthy of 5 stars. Love the customizable positions, rosters, colors, etc. so far, the only issue I've been having is the failure to send playbook as PDF to entire team (approx 9-12) emails. Stays on sending screen for over 5 minutes. The app has crashed about 3 times, and had a couple hang ups. I am using an iPad4 and maxed out on iOS 10.3.3. I will attribute these crashes to my old battery in my device.
Real good app!
by gflash2011 on 2018/03/09 19:05
I have used the app extensively to record plays and schemes. In general, the app is functional and it has been improved recently for speed and efficiency. Some suggestions I have: Ability to edit zone assignments (place a rectangular zone instead of defaulting to a circle all the time) Better functionality when adjusting the size of a “zone” assignment (can be very unresponsive at times) Ability to “float” the line of scrimmage anywhere on screen to maximize space for the play instead of defaulting into the center of the screen. Adjustable yardage indicator on the side of the screen to help explain length of routes and assignments. All in all, still a very good app to use that I’ve found to be helpful.
Big Help!
by LawDawg22001166 on 2017/10/09 05:32
I was trying to find an app or program to create my flag football plays on. This app does everything I need plus more. So easy to use. It's simple and to the point. It could use a couple upgrades here and there but what app can't. I created the plays and printed them out to fit my teams wrist play books. Took my team to the next level. Worth the money to go PRO.
Best flag app
by Hambone5252 on 2019/06/30 01:12
This is by far the best flag app on the market. As soon as I started using this app my teams went on to win 4 championships in a row. It makes you a more efficient coach and allows for an easy to understand layout for the kids. I use this to print out wristbands and change plays on the fly. Great app and I look forward to whatever else this developer comes up with in the future! John H.
More efficient printing please
by Gwilli42 on 2019/09/08 10:37
I really love the app overall. I just wish that it would print multiple wristplays her page. It is a waste to have one band per page. Also, it would be nice if didn’t have to repurchase if I take the app off my iPad. The 90 day limit is a bit annoying. Other than that this really is 5 star app.
Fakes - no present formations
by Coach SteveG on 2019/09/13 19:41
Very good app, but needs a way to indicate fakes. Also a way to draw where the player is going after a hand-off or a fake. Also multiple passing options. Thanks.
Great app
by mikeanthony2010 on 2019/06/20 15:23
Has everything I’m looking for as a first yr youth coach. It made presentations in the huddle so much easier and the kids understood their positions and roles because of the color coding. No confusions. Definitely made my first practice running these plays super smooth. Can’t wait for our first game we’re gonna dominate.
Fun to use, but I could use more room
by Jmcethorn on 2018/02/08 14:33
When creating offensive plays I would like to have more room in that backfield. Is there a way to move the line of scrimmage? I would love it if the line of scrimmage could be moved up so 3/4 of my screen is the backfield instead of just half.
Perfect for flag football
by MatzFlagfiotball on 2018/07/24 00:03
Just got into this app. It is my first year coaching, and the app is already going to be a life saver. To be able to put kids names on routes and to share the playbook with different devices and coaches, is a dream come true. I can’t wait to start the season
Best app for your kids!
by JT_33 on 2019/10/15 19:25
This app has been the most efficient way for us to show our kids the plays in the huddle. We have built an entire playbook out for ever game. We take the iPad to the huddle to show the play. No more plays on paper!!!
Great App
by J-Girl-01 on 2017/09/25 19:37
I've been using this app for 3 seasons now. Being able to share the playbook with coaches and players is a plus. I like being able to print out wristband sized play sheets for my QB and D play caller. Just makes the job of coaching easier.
Suggested Improvements!
by xXsamburgerXx on 2019/08/13 11:58
i absolutely love the app and i’ve been using it for the past 3 years. and it has helped me considerably when communicating concepts with the Special Olympics Flag Football community. some areas i would like to see improved: differentiating between pre-snap motions and an offensive shift. also i would like to have the ability to watch a play design unfold...like, draw it up then press play and watch how the little animated players execute what drew up. Thank You, Samuel Benitez
Great app!!
by hansum80 on 2017/10/23 17:08
I was looking for a way to create plays for a youth flag team. Once I watched the tutorials it made it pretty simple to customize plays. I would definitely recommend this app to others.
Glitch City With This App
by Vancebo1 on 2017/10/08 12:48
It sure has promise though. The patterns randomly disappear. That's frustrating when you are in the middle of coaching. I try restarting the app and my tablet but I never know when they will reappear. I would rate it 3 stars if that could get fixed. What it needs is the ability to illustrate patterns in two different colors from the same player. The printing and sharing works well.
Bigger Field Or Smaller Player Icons
by Maddenfan4life2016 on 2019/12/13 17:21
The overall workings and idea of the app are great, but field is too small to show any advanced plays/play art. Need to either be able to turn your phone sideways for a larger field and or be able to make the player icons smaller to have more room for play design.
Can you extend distance
by mc coach on 2019/05/12 19:21
Can you move the center line forward so you can get more room behind the center and qb ?
Great program great support
by champ coack k on 2019/08/28 01:53
Buy the Pro, well worth it, you’ll be an expert in 15 minutes, easy to use, tutorials to learn and quick helpful support!
Thank you!
by Anthony...123456789 on 2019/09/13 19:10
Thank you for such a great app. I’ve been using this app for years. Hands down its the best football play design app for flag football.
Great app, but i don’t like the price for unlimited plays.
by gcdub eu IM SO MADD on 2019/10/12 20:28
This is an awesome app, but the price is too high. I don’t like that we have to play 15 LITERAL BUCKS just for unlimited FRICKIN’ plays. Please just let us have unlimited plays no matter what dude!
Great
by Pkong on 2018/04/27 01:32
Got everything working smoothly again. Enjoying the app
Not worth your time
by TristenQB on 2019/12/19 02:36
This app is buggy, doesn’t share the full playbook, and doesn’t even show me the correct number of plays for my teammates. You’re better off drawing them yourself
Highly recommended
by Tj121989 on 2018/10/26 17:12
It’s a great app with great support. I’m gonna spread the word to our whole league.
Issues
by Eddie Mike on 2019/05/05 16:11
Great app to draw up plays. I am having issues signing up for account so I can send the playbook to the other coach

Making more plays
by chicagCrazy52 on 2019/10/12 00:20
I like the system but do not like you have to pay to make a bigger play book
Great job!
by Beedzee on 2018/09/26 16:08
When I needed help, Jeremy was very attentive, professional, and handled my situation. Thanks!!
Really
by Lizzm2279 on 2018/10/06 19:29
Who would be stupid enough to pay 15 dollars to make plays? My flag football team can make better plays on paper.
Wish it had more than 8 players
by Spazzo13 on 2019/08/16 16:54
I coach a 9 on 9. Want to use the app but will need to find one with 9 players
Ok
by summercelbreation on 2019/10/07 04:43
How do I draw a route lol
4 Stars, needs more features to earn 5...
by NewCoach on 2012/01/05 02:52
This app should more appropriately be called "crippled" instead of "free." How many coaches are really going to use only 3 plays? Anyone who actually wants to use the app for what it's indended for is then forced to purchase the PRO upgrade. But the PRO features really just unlock functionality that should be there from the beginning. IMHO, the PRO version of the app should instead be a $0.99 to $3 at most "Basic" version, and then when you spend $10 on the PRO version you get more advanced features not found in "Basic". Stuff like being able to edit routes, animation of routes, sime kind of league/game/team organization, etc. I'm sending my suggestions to the developers - hopefully future updates will incorporate some of them and make me feel like my $10 was well spent, instead of feeling like I was forced to buy.
Great app but needs a few tweaks to make it perfect!
by Nickkinicole on 2012/03/25 03:30
This is exactly what I was looking for, other than a few minor discrepancies. I really like the fact that you can have more than a couple of categories. A couple of things are missing though. The ability to assign each player a color instead of a letter, changing line styles/colors to indicate motion or where the ball is going, the ability to add a text box for notes, and the option to add single lines or arrows. Hopefully I will se e these changes in the near future as then I would def feel like I got my 9.99 out of it.
This App won't guarantee a win, but it sure helps!
by Fighting Irish Coach on 2013/10/01 20:13
I have been coaching flag football for 3rd and 4th graders for the past three years. The first year, we didn't win a game and I tried to use printed plays in a notebook. Last year I found this app and used it. We haven't lost a game since I have used this to run our offense. Our team won the championship last year and we are 4-0 so far this season. The kids love it. They see their name on the screen and know exactly what to do when they break the huddle. The app will not make your kids run faster or catch the ball every time, but it gives them the confidence to execute their role on the team, because they aren't second guessing themselves on the line of scrimmage. if you coach flag football and don't utilize this app, you are crazy.
This App changes Flag Football playmaking
by Susan Farley on 2012/03/11 04:18
You won't find a better flag football app anywhere. It will soon be the playmaking standard! I'm rating it a 5 because it is the best flag football app out there. Sure there are some improvements that can be made but lets be supportive and promote the app so that we can see all the improvements we're all looking for. The designers have been very open to feedback and honestly want to provide us with the best product. An app like this has the potential to put those very expensive playmaker websites out of business or at least make them more reasonable. Please include color coding instead of just X's and O's. It would also be nice to have the ability to show zone D somehow! Keep up the good work guys and can't wait for the next update!
Cooler than a coaching clip board
by PJtrades on 2015/01/06 20:12
This is a great app for coaching youth flag football. Just getting ready to start our season so it hasn't been game tested yet, but is easy to use and a great way to draw up and test plays. The ability to print out playbooks and wristband cards is huge! We will most likely not use the iPad at games because of the difficulty seeing the screen in the bright sun and because the weather is unpredictable. There are only a couple of features I would add. Because this is for flag football, it should have a way to add a route to someone who has pitched the ball (ie, the QB pitches to HB and then runs a route himself) The other feature this needs is the ability to show hand-offs and fakes.
This is the app I have been looking for!

For flag football, I have always look for an app that would make entering my plays easy. In addition, I wanted to have something the kids could see easily on the iPad and that I could print as well. This app allows you to do that and whole lot more. Drawing plays is easy. Changing positions is easy. Duplicating plays is easy. The whole thing is just easy to use. Then you can mail yourself your playbook or send to your coaches. It allows you to print wrist plays for your kids and everything else. The only draw back is that the app is a little pricey but helk...these guys thought of everything and the app is well worth it.
Great App
by devojose on 2014/03/19 22:01
I was given an opportunity to coach my brother's flag football team along with some of my friends and this app led us first time kid coaches against a group of experienced adults to a close semi-final loss. The app makes our plays easy to make and easy for the kids to understand. The wristband print allowed us to implement a high tempo offense that kept teams off guard. And plays were easily able to be called from the sidelines as I called out defenses and the others called out offensive plays. Overall good app maybe an option to add the option toss
Really, all that in one app?!
by AppThatWorks on 2012/03/14 18:06
There are several options available, but no other app meets the potential of this app. This app is EXACTLY what is needed. The expense is worth the time saved. The updates I've been told are coming even raise the value! I downloaded the free version and upgraded within 10 minutes. I don't even normally buy apps! 90% of my apps are free, but this was a must purchase. As with any app there are pros and cons, but the pros out weigh the cons. Email in suggestions, and they add it to the list of possibilities. Great Job guys, thank you! TR
Great app for creating and sharing plays,
by dspino123 on 2016/01/22 18:36
I've used this for 3 flag football seasons so far. Easy to use collaborate with assistant coaches. Easy to print great wrist cards (and to email the PDF to parents to print). Suggestions for improvement: add the ability to add text (key words/notes) right to the play diagram so that it's printed on the wrist card too, also add the ability to add a 2nd route option in a different line color (currently it's only one route per player)- with this I'd be able to fit a heck of a lot more on one play card.
Just what I wanted.
by Mirandez on 2012/02/08 02:56
This app is just what I was looking for. Great for CoEd flag football. Lots of features and easy to use, and the developer has been very responsive to my questions and thoughts. I really want to give it 5 stars, however, I can't seem to get past the player roster tab. I don't see the need for it to be permanently displayed once I set my roster, plus you lose valuable space on the screen with no added benefit. I will rate it five stars once I have the ability to hide the roster tab. I definitely recommend this app to anyone.
Need Pitch
by F Low on 2012/02/10 08:06
This truly is a great app. The recent update made it even better. However, couple of more things are needed: 1. QB pitch cannot be shown yet 2. Each directional arrow should be able to have a task assigned to it. For example, you may have a block and then roll out to take a position to receive the ball. The way the app is now, you cannot show the block at the end of the first directional arrow. I hope those changes would come soon. Thank you for such a great app.
Great app but...
by Rt1987 on 2012/04/03 19:02
I have the paid version and love the app. However I would like to be able to put the players names on the play for each play and not have it do it for every single player I have more than 6 people on the team and I have certain plays for certain people so I would appreciate it if that was changed so that in the game I can go right to the play and not have to swap out names because once I do that player gets changed on all the other lays to.
Exceptional Youth 5 v 5 App
by Kellym00 on 2014/01/20 00:19
I've used the PRO version of this app in two seasons of 6 & 7 year old 5v5 flag football. For offensive play calling it is exceptional. I can diagram virtually any play - reverses, options, motion, etc. - quickly, easily, and (most importantly) understandably for the kids. We huddle, they look at the play, find their name, and instantly know where to line up and what to do. Making personnel changes on the fly is also painless - just drag and drop any name on the roster. And if I can't make a practice or a game I can email the play book to my assistant coach to print out and use. I haven't found it as useful on defense but that side of the ball is typically less complicated and the benefits of this app aren't as important. The cost made me hesitate but I have absolutely gotten my money's worth. Solid tool, good purchase.
8-man Playbook
by Ruskin Florida on 2012/04/27 03:40
This is the best app for football plays. It's perfect for keeping all my plays at my fingertips and sorts for quick play calling. I purchased this app because of the ease of user, friendly interface, and with the recent update can print a playbook for each player and wristband without any effort. The developers quickly respond for support and listen to input to make their product better.

Excellent play design app
by APK Falcons Coach on 2020/01/24 16:28
I use this for 5v5 flag for an 8U team. Love the easy to use play editor and the ability to change shapes, i.e. the kid getting the ball is the star shape on the play. The export to pdf feature is so key and allows up to 9 plays on one page for in game play calling. I haven’t used the print to wristband yet but I’m sure that’s great as well. One of my only criticisms is that when you go to edit a route you have to click the circle representing the player- however it’s near impossible to do this without moving the circle. Sort if a minor complaint but I end up routinely relocating my dots. Overall though an awesome app with great support.
Great app, worth the money.
by Sneakypete75 on 2020/01/06 17:28
I use the app for 5v5 flag football. It is easy to use and draw up plays within minutes. I will see something during a game on tv, and create a play similar for our team. Although, I have a couple of recommendations. I began using this at the beginning of the season. I am not sure if I am navigating properly, so please assist if I am not. 1. When in the view mode of the play, it would be nice to swipe through the plays right or left. 2. When in the Playbook mode, it would be nice to color coordinate the plays. This would help while scrolling quickly to identify specific plays (ie. goal line, long yardage, trick plays). 3. Also, when in Playbook mode, it would be nice to not be able to edit the plays by removing the “i”. Sometimes when scrolling through, I like to go fast however I accidentally hit the “i” and have to cancel out of it. Maybe place the “i” in the play on the top taskbar, once it is opened? There are two buttons which move you back to the playbook, maybe one can be replaced by the “i”. The app is great and thanks for putting it together. It’s well worth the one time fee of $15.
Not worth your time
by TristenQB on 2019/12/19 02:36
This app is buggy, doesn’t share the full playbook, and doesn’t even show me the correct number of plays for my teammates. You’re better off drawing them yourself
Bigger Field Or Smaller Player Icons
by Maddenfan4life2016 on 2019/12/13 17:21
The overall workings and idea of the app are great, but field is too small to show any advanced plays/play art. Need to either be able to turn your phone sideways for a larger field and or be able to make the player icons smaller to have more room for play design.
Best app for your kids!
by JT_33 on 2019/10/15 19:25
This app has been the most efficient way for us to show our kids the plays in the huddle. We have built an entire playbook out for ever game. We take the iPad to the huddle to show the play. No more plays on paper!!!
Great app, but i don’t like the price for unlimited plays.
by gcdub eu IM SO MADD on 2019/10/12 20:28
This is an awesome app, but the price is too high. I don’t like that we have to play 15 LITERAL BUCKS just for unlimited FRICKIN’ plays. Please just let us have unlimited plays no matter what dude!
Making more plays
by chicagCrazy52 on 2019/10/12 00:20
I like the system but do not like you have to pay to make a bigger play book
Ok
by summercelbreation on 2019/10/07 04:43
How do I draw a route lol
Fakes - no present formations
by Coach SteveG on 2019/09/13 19:41
Very good app, but needs a way to indicate fakes. Also a way to draw where the player is going after a hand-off or a fake. Also multiple passing options. Thanks.
Thank you!
by Anthony...123456789 on 2019/09/13 19:10
Thank you for such a great app. I’ve been using this app for years. Hands down its the best football play design app for flag football.
More efficient printing please
by Gwilli42 on 2019/09/08 10:37
I really love the app overall. I just wish that it would print multiple wristplays her page. It is a waste to have one band per page. Also, it would be nice if didn’t have to repurchase if I take the app off my iPad. The 90 day limit is a bit annoying. Other than that this really is 5 star app.
Great program great support
by champ coack k on 2019/08/28 01:53
Buy the Pro, well worth it, you’ll be an expert in 15 minutes, easy to use, tutorials to learn and quick helpful support!
Wish it had more than 8 players
by Spazzo13 on 2019/08/16 16:54
I coach a 9 on 9. Want to use the app but will need to find one with 9 players
Suggested Improvements!
by xXsamburgerXx on 2019/08/13 11:58
i absolutely love the app and i’ve been using it for the past 3 years. and it has helped me considerably when communicating concepts with the Special Olympics Flag Football community. some areas i would like to see improved: differentiating between pre-snap motions and an offensive shift. also i would like to have the ability to watch a play design unfold...like, draw it up then press play and watch how the little animated players execute what drew up. Thank You, Samuel Benitez
Best flag app
by Hambone5252 on 2019/06/30 01:12
This is by far the best flag app on the market. As soon as I started using this app my teams went on to win 4 championships in a row. It makes you a more efficient coach and allows for an easy to understand layout for the kids. I use this to print out wristbands and change plays on the fly. Great app and I look forward to whatever else this developer comes up with in the future! John H.
Great app
by mikeanthony2010 on 2019/06/20 15:23
Has everything I’m looking for as a first yr youth coach. It made presentations in the huddle so much easier and the kids understood their positions and roles because of the color coding. No confusions. Definitely made my first practice running these plays super smooth. Can’t wait for our first game we’re gonna dominate.
Can you extend distance
by mc coach on 2019/05/12 19:21
Can you move the center line forward so you can get more room behind the center and qb ?
Issues
by Eddie Mike on 2019/05/05 16:11
Great app to draw up plays. I am having issues signing up for account so I can send the playbook to the other coach
Great app for the most part
by sharp1993 on 2019/01/27 02:12
The concept of this app is awesome the only downfall would be logos to choose from and every time I go to draw a route it seems to want to move the player instead also it’s difficult to curve or alter the route the way you want it but BY FAR better than anything else I’ve seen or tried mainly because this one offers 5 on 5 great job I would recommend working on making it easier to curve routes
Highly recommended
by Tj121989 on 2018/10/26 17:12
It’s a great app with great support. I’m gonna spread the word to our whole league.
Really
by Lizzm2279 on 2018/10/06 19:29
Who would be stupid enough to pay 15 dollars to make plays? My flag football team can make better plays on paper.
Great job!
by Beedzee on 2018/09/26 16:08
When I needed help, Jeremy was very attentive, professional, and handled my situation. Thanks!!
Great Product
by dhb1976! on 2018/09/18 20:31
I coach in a 7-on-7 flag league. This app has been great for drawing up plays. Very easy and intuitive. It also gives you the ability to add a roster and label positions by player names—very helpful for younger kids who can get confused by a play sheet of just X’s and O’s, without names. Also, very easy to print out plays, which I was doing at first, but I took my iPad to use at a game for the first time this weekend, and I found that to be much better than using paper. Gives you much more flexibility to change positions around and draw up new plays. The kids were able to see the plays on the iPad in the bright sun. The only thing I was worried about (which doesn’t have anything to do with the app) was that my iPad would overheat—it was very hot outside. Luckily, that didn’t happen, even though the iPad was pretty warm (I even put it in the drink cooler at halftime). Anyways, this is a great app and well worth the money, imo.
BEST, but could use Improvements
by David Dcb man! on 2018/09/05 01:10
SO MUCH BETTER than the expensive web-based playmaker and EASIER to use! It's $15 for the app, not $15/Mo. Amazing value! You can make plays anywhere whenever you think of one! Print wrist inserts right from your phone! Easy to learn. Negatives --flipped plays get aren't always perfectly rendered. --and what shows on tile isn't always what's underneath. --GET RID OF THAT HUGE LOGO printed on wristbands printouts. You can't even flip the page over and reprint because of it. --can't print 2 wrist play sheets inserts with bottom borders touching each other. (Would save cutting time when you're cutting and inserting 20 of these at a time🤯) Wish list-- --ability to draw lines at 90 and 45 degrees. -customizable play numbers (not just 1-8). Less confusing for little kids. -be able to upload personal playbook mascots -be able to have a player have 2/3 separate line styles for special plays. Great product though, honestly. You guys should advertise on line with some good keywords. I've been doing this for years and struggling. That other playmaker is more difficult to use and so overpriced. This app is the real deal.
Perfect for flag football
by MatzFlagfiotball on 2018/07/24 00:03
Just got into this app. It is my first year coaching, and the app is already going to be a life saver. To be able to put kids names on routes and to share the playbook with different devices and coaches, is a dream come true. I can’t wait to start the season
Great
by Pkong on 2018/04/27 01:32
Got everything working smoothly again. Enjoying the app
72 hour review
by Claws Coach on 2018/04/24 08:20
My initial review, is this is an awesome app. Definitely worthy of 5 stars. Love the customizable positions, rosters, colors, etc. so far, the only issue I've been having is the failure to send playbook as PDF to entire team (approx 9-12) emails. Stays on sending screen for over 5 minutes. The app has crashed about 3 times, and had a couple hang ups. I am using an iPad4 and maxed out on iOS 10.3.3. I will attribute these crashes to my old battery in my device.
Real good app!
by gflash2011 on 2018/03/09 19:05
I have used the app extensively to record plays and schemes. In general, the app is functional and it has been improved recently for speed and efficiency. Some suggestions I have: Ability to edit zone assignments (place a rectangular zone instead of defaulting to a circle all the time) Better functionality when adjusting the size of a “zone” assignment (can be very unresponsive at times) Ability to “float” the line of scrimmage anywhere on screen to maximize space for the play instead of defaulting into the center of the screen. Adjustable yardage indicator on the side of the screen to help explain length of routes and assignments. All in all, still a very good app to use that I’ve found to be helpful.
Fun to use, but I could use more room
by Jmcethorn on 2018/02/08 14:33
When creating offensive plays I would like to have more room in that backfield. Is there a way to move the line of scrimmage? I would love it if the line of scrimmage could be moved up so 3/4 of my screen is the backfield instead of just half.
Generally good but print could be better
by Bdrptl on 2018/01/28 05:22
I paid the expensive $15 (for this type of app and functionality, the market cap is more like $9.99) and generally am happy. One thing I don't like is the wasted paper... My wrist playbooks have the typical cover plastic page where the first set of plays should show on one side, then the next set of plays should be printed on the fold of the underside of the page but I can't get this app to accommodate. So I have to print two pages, mostly because the footer is much too large, and then cut all sections to then put them into the playbooks.
Great app!!
by hansum80 on 2017/10/23 17:08
I was looking for a way to create plays for a youth flag team. Once I watched the tutorials it made it pretty simple to customize plays. I would definitely recommend this app to others.
Big Help!
by LawDawg22001166 on 2017/10/09 05:32
I was trying to find an app or program to create my flag football plays on. This app does everything I need plus more. So easy to use. It's simple and to the point. It could use a couple upgrades here and there but what app can't. I created the plays and printed them out to fit my teams wrist play books. Took my team to the next level. Worth the money to go PRO.
Glitch City With This App
by Vancebo1 on 2017/10/08 12:48
It sure has promise though. The patterns randomly disappear. That's frustrating when you are in the middle of coaching. I try restarting the app and my tablet but I never know when they will reappear. I would rate it 3 stars if that could get fixed. What it needs is the ability to illustrate patterns in two different colors from the same player. The printing and sharing works well.
Great app but needs cross platform
by Bretta83 on 2017/09/26 18:08
I almost purchased the app but I double checked to make sure it was on android so my friends could access it but I couldn't find it. Edit-I ended up purchasing the app because there is very little options out there and I must say I'm very happy with the ability print out the plays for the QB wrist band. They have plenty of sizes to fit any wristband. Super easy to create formations/plays. Would recommend to everyone.
Great App
by J-Girl-01 on 2017/09/25 19:37
I've been using this app for 3 seasons now. Being able to share the playbook with coaches and players is a plus. I like being able to print out wristband sized play sheets for my QB and D play caller. Just makes the job of coaching easier.
The only app I'll use for coaching
by DRjcDPT on 2017/06/21 21:47
Great app! I've been very pleased with the ease of use with this app. Just waiting for some things like block and release/Multiple Pitching
This is extremely good for a free app
by allllllllllee on 2017/04/29 05:54
Searching a title like this, I was extorting some bad free app with pop up ads every 0.5 seconds, and terrible graphics with barely any options. But this... this is good
Amazing

Wow....great app
by Tone Capone67 on 2016/11/14 02:04
This app is great. While coaching 9-10 youth flag football.. I use this during practice and at games to quickly set the plays up for the team. i use a iPad mini and the plays are big enough for the team to quickly see to start the plays. Making on the fly changes or mapping out a new play on the fly is so very easy. MUST HAVE APP.
Good, but needs polishing
by Grid, zones, animation on 2016/09/25 22:30
I like this app but wish it had the following: -Community plays and play books. -Add grid to play design screen. -Add snap to grid option. -Add animation. -On defense zones, add oval and square option to further define the home zone.
Amazing App, GREAT SUPPORT!!!
by LORD_APOC on 2016/09/05 22:48
Awesome playbook maker! I have used it for 5 seasons and it works perfect!!! Also to the ability to forward your playbook to another coach makes this app that much better!!!!!
Update

Great job guys great job with the update great job!!
Gators Approved!!
by Gatordad99 on 2016/05/22 12:50
Wish I knew about this app 3 years ago! Easy to use, easy to share with players and coaches. Kids love designing their own plays. Would like the ability to choose # of plays per panel (4 plays, bigger picture), ability to add secondary route in different color and add my own mascot from existing photos (team request).
Great app for creating and sharing plays,
by dspino123 on 2016/01/22 18:36
I've used this for 3 flag football seasons so far. Easy to use collaborate with assistant coaches. Easy to print great wrist cards (and to email the PDF to parents to print). Suggestions for improvement: add the ability to add text (key words/notes) right to the play diagram so that it's printed on the wrist card too, also add the ability to add a 2nd route option in a different line color (currently it's only one route per player)- with this I'd be able to fit a heck of a lot more on one play card.
Great app
by Hambone76997 on 2015/09/26 00:48
Great app for creating football plays. Very easy to use. The print out for the wristbands are excellent!
Please add 9 vs 9
by DEADITES23 on 2015/08/19 02:05
Need 9 vs 9
Love it
by Dhensch on 2015/08/15 16:37
I coach middle school kids and this made it super easy to create the plays, print them for the wristbands and share the playbook with the coaches. I was up and running, creating plays in seconds. The tutorials are fantastic and the customer service is quick and responsive!
Route Tree
by Destro1914 on 2015/07/29 02:25
Can you add the ability to make route trees. This would make the app perfect.
Great app
by Footballfla2015 on 2015/07/24 16:53
Best football playmaking app available. Great features and user friendly.
Love it
by Herbrandson on 2015/07/02 23:21
This apps saves us sooooo much time in the huddle. The kids love it!
Great tool
by Happy Dad Coach on 2015/03/28 02:32
Easy to learn. Flexibility to customize plays for your league's rules is great. Labeling and color coding the positions allowed 3rd graders to understand and run plays in our first practice with mostly first time players. I'm very impressed and I recommend the Pro version. The support is also very responsive and helpful. I think you'll have a lot of fun and success with this tool.
Great App
by av8rdude007 on 2015/03/27 17:08
As a flag football coach for 10-11 year olds I was searching for an easy to use app that would help me start running plays as fast as I could. The fact that you can color code players and print wrist bands can have your team practicing plays on the very first practice. Very well thought out. Thanks.
Great App love the design and the intuitive controls!
by JRHughes on 2015/03/27 00:23
Great App! love the design and the intuitive controls! Print options sheets and wristbands great!
Frustrated
by Act1995 on 2015/03/18 02:29
Bought this app and it mentions you can name all the players, which is great. However, if you create a different play for another group of kids and change the names, it changes the names on the first play you created as well. So basically, you can't name the players if you have any subs because it constantly keeps changing the names back and forth. If I would have known that, I would have never purchased.
Great app! Very easy!

I use this for simple 6-6 youth (11-13 yo) plays and keeps my roster and rotations organized too! Just waiting for update to print names on plays then this will be 5-star.
The best app backed by responsive customer service.
by Barry Hersh on 2015/01/13 23:58
I've been using this app for 3 seasons. It's terrific. Even better are the people behind the app. I've contacted them several times to recommend new features. Very responsive and they actually coach youth football.
Cooler than a coaching clip board
by PJtrades on 2015/01/06 20:12
This is a great app for coaching youth flag football. Just getting ready to start our season so it hasn't been game tested yet, but is easy to use and a great way to draw up and test plays. The ability to print out playbooks and wristband cards is huge! We will most likely not use the iPad at games because of the difficulty seeing the screen in the bright sun and because the weather is unpredictable. There are only a couple of features I would add. Because this is for flag football, it should have a way to add a route to someone who has pitched the ball (ie, the QB pitches to HB and then runs a route himself) The other feature this needs is the ability to show hand-offs and fakes.
No better playbook maker!!!
by Peckin1 on 2014/11/01 00:05
This app just can’t be beat! One of the greatest apps I have ever had. And there customer service is unheard of for a standalone application on a mobile device. Email or Social media they are quick to answer and provide guides on how to use their product. Simply amazing work guys!!! Keep up the good work.
Fantastic!
by Jvhinely on 2014/10/24 04:47
Excellent app, it really came in handy this football season. Very easy to use, easy for kids to see and understand plays. Lots of tools for designing plays]
Conveniently creative
by Dubba dub on 2014/10/10 00:20
I recently had a 5-hour flight to Los Angeles and I was able to create about 25 new plays for our youth flag football team. The "duplicate" and "duplicate and flip" feature make it very easy to create multiple formations and switches. I cannot wait to share with our coaches.
Very well done!
by Travaggie on 2014/09/24 21:17
Easy to use, features that make sense and are well thought out. Must have for any flag football player or coach!
Really Great App
by Sydshobob on 2014/09/24 18:39
The new version of FF Playmaker is great. Does what I want quickly and easily.
Great App 4.5 stars
by pkd16 on 2014/09/06 21:30
Great app on many levels. Organization, multiple play books, and categories are awesome. The interface is very well thought out and intuitive. It's so easy you don't need the videos. Couple of feature requests that would help: 1) be able to select multiple categories. This would help better organize a narrow down plays when searching. 2) Reduce size of the dots 25-50%, or have user defined scale option. The dots are way to huge on the ipad. No way to show a true spread out formation. 3) have a toggle for the player screen on left. Wasted space that could be used for drawing plays. Thanks!
Life Saver
by Ars123321 on 2014/08/08 12:45
Life saver doesn't really even begin to describe this app. Plays are easy to design and change on the fly - even in the huddle on a game winning drive at one point. This app keeps me organized and my players focused and has helped our teams over the last 4 years win 3 championships. I generally stay away from expensive apps but this one is worth every penny.
Great App. Best Play Calling App out there
by Lubaiga on 2014/03/31 14:48
Fast simple. Great for in game use and pregame preparation. Field could be made bigger for easier play diagramming, but for 99% of plays its fine. Great app don't even bother looking at the other ones
Fantastic App
by Harry Keller on 2014/03/24 04:30
Awesome app for making plays. And great customer service! They answered my questions within 24 hours of sending the email.
Great App
by devojose on 2014/03/19 22:01
I was given an opportunity to coach my brother's flag football team along with some of my friends and this app led us first time kid coaches against a group of experienced adults to a close semi-final loss. The app makes our plays easy to make and easy for the kids to understand. The wristband print allowed us to implement a high tempo offense that kept teams off guard. And plays were easily able to be called from the sidelines as I called out defenses and the others called out offensive plays. Overall good app maybe an option to add the option toss
Great app for new coaches
by Kellyander30 on 2014/03/19 20:13
This is a great app, especially if you like to draw up your own plays.
Exceptional Youth 5 v 5 App
by Kellym00 on 2014/01/20 00:19
I've used the PRO version of this app in two seasons of 6 & 7 year old 5v5 flag football. For offensive play calling it is exceptional. I can diagram virtually any play - reverses, options, motion, etc. - quickly, easily, and (most importantly) understandably for the kids. We huddle, they look at the play, find their name, and instantly know where to line up and what to do. Making personnel changes on the fly is also painless - just drag and drop any name on the roster. And if I can't make a practice or a game I can email the play book to my assistant coach to print out and use. I haven't found it as useful on defense but that side of the ball is typically less complicated and the benefits of this app aren't as important. The cost made me hesitate but I have absolutely gotten my money's worth. Solid tool, good purchase.
Great App, but needs improvements
by Tbbucs70 on 2014/01/17 02:54
Love the app, but it needs a few updates. 1). The player list should be removed from the field of view, to utilize the entire space on iPad. 2). The options for player coverage, direction, and routes should be the same for defense as offense. Many more options available for offense. 3). The line of scrimmage should have the option to move it up or down for more space. 4). Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I can't get the plays for the wrist band to send with the green field for printing, even though it shows it's in green format. Other than that, very easy
great app
by tim_schu on 2013/12/05 00:03
Great app for the money. Works awesome for youth 5v5 (can color code rather than typing in names of players) and getting ready to try it out with adult 8v8. Being able to share the playbook and import it from other users is saving a lot of time, which is a nice new addition.
Game Changer
by Jeff7602 on 2013/10/17 07:45
This app is great! It has helped me so much in being organized for the start of the season. The kids love seeing their names on the iPad, so they seem to pay better attention than using traditional play cards.
Must have app
by Jeffypoohbear on 2013/10/16 21:31
This is a must have app for any flag football coach. Capabilities are endless. I love the wristband play-card generator!
This App won't guarantee a win, but it sure helps!
by Fighting Irish Coach on 2013/10/01 20:13
I have been coaching flag football for 3rd and 4th graders for the past three years. The first year, we didn't win a game and I tried to use printed plays in a notebook. Last year I found this app and used it. We haven't lost a game since I have used this to run our offense. Our team won the championship last year and we are 4-0 so far this season. The kids love it. They see their name on the screen and know exactly what to do when they break the huddle. The app will not make your kids run faster or catch the ball every time, but it gives them the confidence to execute their role on the team, because they aren't second guessing themselves on the line of scrimmage. if you coach flag football and don't utilize this app, you are crazy.
An excellent way to communicate with the team
by Buckeye2911 on 2013/09/27 02:03
I have used this app for two years and it is great. It allows for fast play creation and changes on the fly. We send out the game plays to the team for the week and it saves time at practice. Excellent app.
Love it!
by MrJake13 on 2013/09/19 21:25
I'm in my third year of coaching flag football and I love the Flag Football Playmaker app. It's great for designing plays and for teaching the kids their routes/duties on each play. Kids today are "visual learners" and this app has saved me valuable time during practice and in the huddle. Also, if you have a problem the support team is very prompt and has always answered my questions.
Play book
by MazeWood on 2013/09/17 19:33
Cannot get notes to print, cannot get the wrist band info to PDF and email correctly, it just sits their and stalls. Like the overall concept but for the price not being able to print PDF wrist band and playroom notes is a waste of time and investment !!!!
Can't print play notes?
by xx_VH_xx on 2013/09/15 22:01
Would be 5 stars if. You could share/print play notes at the bottom of each play.
Incredible tool!
by ntgeek on 2013/09/11 01:36
This is simply a great, easy to use tool. This has made coaching my flag football team a lot easier. The developer has been extremely responsive to questions and suggestions. I would (and am) recommend this to anybody who is coaching as a must have tool.
Crashes
by Magnum PI 88 on 2013/08/21 03:20
This App works great but crashes every time I try to delete Pass Plays when trying to edit the Offensive Plays categories. I'm trying to do this because I'm unable to prioritize the categories list. S I was going to delete and then create new ones in the order I want. Not the best option, just the only one. If you guys could fix this, then this would be great. Would also like to have quarterback lines go squiggly in more then one direction to show a double fake, then pass.
Love it!
by Teejayitt on 2013/07/20 05:58
My only suggestion is. That my team that I'm making arm bands for only needs 3 plays per row which would make a total of 6 plays on a wrist band play sheet. Could you make the possibility of having those 3 plays stretch across the play sheet, filling in all possible space rather than leaving that blank spot on the side? Till then 4 stars.
Ok so far
by TVAL on 2013/07/14 03:00
Looks good but missing notes pages with plays and I have not yet figured out how to add defensive players to my offensive plays to get placement just right. Get me that info or fix it and the money spent might be worth it.
Expensive
by havasutexan on 2013/03/03 17:56
Great app, but very expensive to upgrade to the pro version. The option of flipping a play is great, but one thing to help improve the app would be the ability to make an exact copy of a play. Then you could flip the play and save it in the opposite direction.
Well...
by ShadowNYY on 2013/01/16 13:58
This app is great; I haven't found a better playbook app yet. But $15 for the full version is absurd! The free version does not give you enough options to use long-term, and the full verisimilitude is extremely overpriced. 99 cents, $1.99 I can see. But $15 is just ridiculous. Have a sale or something!
Please show position names when sharing
by roborlando on 2013/01/14 06:54
The app is great, but it would be nice when emailing or sharing plays to be able show/ print out the roster names and assignments for the various players both offense and defense. This is baffling to me, but it's still a nice app. Use it for 8 year olds and they love it!
Animation
by MISIAMSECOND on 2013/01/04 06:20
All it is missing is animation. There should be a preview mode to show how the plays should be ran. That would take this app over the top.
Very Good, Keep Going
by DHB12 on 2012/12/15 07:16
Great app, but keep going. So much more you could including curved lines, iCloud or Dropbox sync for multiple device sync, multiple templates to save, ability to copy or duplicate plays, reverse plays without flipping positions (e.g. wide receivers), more print options, more share options, etc, etc. Love the app, but would love to see more.
Really good!!!!!
by Jspearson1 on 2012/12/05 23:01
I just upraded to pro and i am really enjoying it. The last dot uprade really brought a lot of needed tweaks. Few suggestions: 1. There should base formations for each set playbook, not just one for offense and defense. 2. I wish there was a way to share your plays through other applications other than just email, ex. Facebook, twitter, group me. 3. On offense or defense, being able to draw up a play with both sides of the ball would really great. I play quarterback and being able to get my teammates on the same page has been a challenge for me. With this app it made it so much easier. Thanks
Very good
by Finzrule on 2012/11/28 22:15
Only 2 problems: you can't draw curved shapes and I'm having trouble with some of my playbooks not getting emailed fully... Besides that, I love this app, well worth the $15 upgrade
Just Okay - WAY Overpriced
by Richard - USA on 2012/11/05 01:45
The Ap is okay - why can't you draw in curve shapes ? $15 is 10 too much -
Great App for Flag Football!
by Tiny zoo rocks 222 on 2012/10/21 22:21
So far so good!!! Love it! Easy to use, and the developers really care too (they responded immediately to an email question I had....). Their FB page shows a new update coming out for wristbands and colors- excellent addition, just waiting to see it! Keep up the upgrades!!! Thanks, 5v5 coach
Great base product
by Masterzach on 2012/10/17 19:00
Needs few key added features: 1) ability to copy/paste - need to be able copy made play to use as base for next one made 2) drag and drop - moving a play from one category of play to next 3) text entry -- be able to place anywhere - under/over a pattern to give it a name or yardage distance 4) ability to turn on yardage markers ( possibly dotted lines) that denote 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 yards from line of scrimmage - option to include when printing 5) all text added -- needs to print 6) option to use multiple color options for routes - that can match the color of the player circle Expensive for base product. Expecting added features Thanks for great start !!!
Agree with review 20 plus.....
by Alllfootball on 2012/10/10 15:19
I agree with points 1,2,5,6 in review 20. Also if you can add the ability to insert editable positions like LG into the circles that today have X,Y,Z. This would be ideal. Today I have to use roster to add position data then there is no option to print it with the plays. So if you can add either way it would be great. Please bring on theses fixes before the end of our season. Thanks
Wow!!!
by Misunderstood ConQueror on 2012/10/06 19:05
What a resource this is!! Looking forward to using this app during our upcoming season. For all those people harping about this not having 11 men available, this is a flag football app!
Good app
by Mo funny on 2012/09/28 14:28
I like this app a lot. Not only to draw up plays, but play calling on game day. In addition to rounded routes, I would LOVE to see the ability to customize rosters for each category. It is awesome that you can customize the order of the plays in category without changing the overall order (all offensive plays). The makes scripting your plays easy. If the app could also save a particular roster in each category, I wouldn't have to adjust on the fly at the end of each quarter. We play 2 halves, but I try to substitute at the half way point in each half, at a dead ball. I have created 4 categories (1st Q, 2nd Q, etc.) and have picked specific plays for the players playing that quarter. Without calling a timeout, I'll have to frantically drag new names to positions while calling the play in the huddle. If this change could be made, I'd give this 5 stars. Thanks.
Good app
by Bandbfawson on 2012/09/27 02:08
Good app, great for creating, but there is one issue. When dragging player names over on a position it effectively changes that player for the position in every other play as well. Hope that gets fixed, but this was a good buy.
Not bad coule be better.
by FlagFootball on 2012/09/24 00:36
So far I'm making do. Twice now the app has closed and I've lost plays that I had previously saved. Besides that I like the ability to draw out customs lines. Would be nice if you could curve them without having to make 5 or 6 straight lines. Colors would be nice too as well as the option to show an option, more then one route ( like one line splitting into 2 or a block that goes into a route. Everything else is great.
11players PLEASE
by er1ckr519 on 2012/09/22 01:26
Please make an 11 player appl...would love to bring my iPad to the game and show PWee's how is done. Keep up the good work. Thank you.
Great app, worth the money.
by Sneakypete75 on 2020/01/06 17:28
I use the app for 5v5 flag football. It is easy to use and draw up plays within minutes. I will see something during a game on tv, and create a play similar for our team. Although, I have a couple of recommendations. I began using this at the beginning of the season. I am not sure if I am navigating properly, so please assist if I am not. 1. When in the view mode of the play, it would be nice to swipe through the plays right or left. 2. When in the Playbook mode, it would be nice to color coordinate the plays. This would help while scrolling quickly to identify specific plays (ie. goal line, long yardage, trick plays). 3. Also, when in Playbook mode, it would be nice to not be able to edit the plays by removing the “i”. Sometimes when scrolling through, I like to go fast however I accidentally hit the “i” and have to cancel out of it. Maybe place the “i” in the play on the top taskbar, once it is opened? There are two buttons which move you back to the playbook, maybe one can be replaced by the “i”. The app is great and thanks for putting it together. It’s well worth the one time fee of $15.
Great Product
by dhb1976! on 2018/09/18 20:31
I coach in a 7-on-7 flag league. This app has been great for drawing up plays. Very easy and intuitive. It also gives you the ability to add a roster and label positions by player names—very helpful for younger kids who can get confused by a play sheet of just X’s and O’s, without names. Also, very easy to print out plays, which I was doing at first, but I took my iPad to use at a game for the first time this weekend, and I found that to be much better than using paper. Gives you much more flexibility to change positions around and draw up new plays. The kids were able to see the plays on the iPad in the bright sun. The only thing I was worried about (which doesn’t have anything to do with the app) was that my iPad would overheat—it was very hot outside. Luckily, that didn’t happen, even though the iPad was pretty warm (I even put it in the drink cooler at halftime). Anyways, this is a great app and well worth the money, imo.
BEST, but could use Improvements
by David Dcb man! on 2018/09/05 01:10
SO MUCH BETTER than the expensive web-based playmaker and EASIER to use! It's $15 for the app, not $15/Mo. Amazing value! You can make plays anywhere whenever you think of one! Print wrist inserts right from your phone! Easy to learn. Negatives --flipped plays get aren't always perfectly rendered. --and what shows on tile isn't always what's underneath. --GET RID OF THAT HUGE LOGO printed on wristbands printouts. You can't even flip the page over and reprint because of it. --can't print 2 wrist play sheets inserts with bottom borders touching each other. (Would save cutting time when you're cutting and inserting 20 of these at a time🤯) Wish list-- --ability to draw lines at 90 and 45 degrees. -customizable play numbers (not just 1-8). Less confusing for little kids. -be able to upload personal playbook mascots -be able to have a player have 2/3 separate line styles for special plays. Great product though, honestly. You guys should advertise on line with some good keywords. I've been doing this for years and struggling. That other playmaker is more difficult to use and so overpriced. This app is the real deal.
Great app for the most part
by sharp1993 on 2019/01/27 02:12
The concept of this app is awesome the only downfall would be logos to choose from and every time I go to draw a route it seems to want to move the player instead also it’s difficult to curve or alter the route the way you want it but BY FAR better than anything else I’ve seen or tried mainly because this one offers 5 on 5 great job I would recommend working on making it easier to curve routes
Excellent play design app
by APK Falcons Coach on 2020/01/24 16:28
I use this for 5v5 flag for an 8U team. Love the easy to use play editor and the ability to change shapes, i.e. the kid getting the ball is the star shape on the play. The export to pdf feature is so key and allows up to 9 plays on one page for in game play calling. I haven’t used the print to wristband yet but I’m sure that’s great as well. One of my only criticisms is that when you go to edit a route you have to click the circle representing the player- however it’s near impossible to do this without moving the circle. Sort if a minor complaint but I end up routinely relocating my dots. Overall though an awesome app with great support.
Generally good but print could be better
by Bdrptl on 2018/01/28 05:22
I paid the expensive $15 (for this type of app and functionality, the market cap is more like $9.99) and generally am happy. One thing I don't like is the wasted paper... My wrist playbooks have the typical cover plastic page where the first set of plays should show on one side, then the next set of plays should be printed on the fold of the underside of the page but I can't get this app to accommodate. So I have to print two pages, mostly because the footer is much too large, and then cut all sections to then put them into the playbooks.
72 hour review
by Claws Coach on 2018/04/24 08:20
My initial review, is this is an awesome app. Definitely worthy of 5 stars. Love the customizable positions, rosters, colors, etc. so far, the only issue I've been having is the failure to send playbook as PDF to entire team (approx 9-12) emails. Stays on sending screen for over 5 minutes. The app has crashed about 3 times, and had a couple hang ups. I am using an iPad4 and maxed out on iOS 10.3.3. I will attribute these crashes to my old battery in my device.
Real good app!
by gflash2011 on 2018/03/09 19:05
I have used the app extensively to record plays and schemes. In general, the app is functional and it has been improved recently for speed and efficiency. Some suggestions I have: Ability to edit zone assignments (place a rectangular zone instead of defaulting to a circle all the time) Better functionality when adjusting the size of a “zone” assignment (can be very unresponsive at times) Ability to “float” the line of scrimmage anywhere on screen to maximize space for the play instead of defaulting into the center of the screen. Adjustable yardage indicator on the side of the screen to help explain length of routes and assignments. All in all, still a very good app to use that I’ve found to be helpful.
Big Help!
by LawDawg22001166 on 2017/10/09 05:32
I was trying to find an app or program to create my flag football plays on. This app does everything I need plus more. So easy to use. It's simple and to the point. It could use a couple upgrades here and there but what app can't. I created the plays and printed them out to fit my teams wrist play books. Took my team to the next level. Worth the money to go PRO.
Best flag app
by Hambone5252 on 2019/06/30 01:12
This is by far the best flag app on the market. As soon as I started using this app my teams went on to win 4 championships in a row. It makes you a more efficient coach and allows for an easy to understand layout for the kids. I use this to print out wristbands and change plays on the fly. Great app and I look forward to whatever else this developer comes up with in the future! John H.
More efficient printing please
by Gwilli42 on 2019/09/08 10:37
I really love the app overall. I just wish that it would print multiple wristplays her page. It is a waste to have one band per page. Also, it would be nice if didn’t have to repurchase if I take the app off my iPad. The 90 day limit is a bit annoying. Other than that this really is 5 star app.
Fakes - no present formations
by Coach SteveG on 2019/09/13 19:41
Very good app, but needs a way to indicate fakes. Also a way to draw where the player is going after a hand-off or a fake. Also multiple passing options. Thanks.
Great app
by mikeanthony2010 on 2019/06/20 15:23
Has everything I’m looking for as a first yr youth coach. It made presentations in the huddle so much easier and the kids understood their positions and roles because of the color coding. No confusions. Definitely made my first practice running these plays super smooth. Can’t wait for our first game we’re gonna dominate.
Fun to use, but I could use more room
by Jmcethorn on 2018/02/08 14:33
When creating offensive plays I would like to have more room in that backfield. Is there a way to move the line of scrimmage? I would love it if the line of scrimmage could be moved up so 3/4 of my screen is the backfield instead of just half.
Perfect for flag football
by MatzFlagfiotball on 2018/07/24 00:03
Just got into this app. It is my first year coaching, and the app is already going to be a life saver. To be able to put kids names on routes and to share the playbook with different devices and coaches, is a dream come true. I can’t wait to start the season
Best app for your kids!
by JT_33 on 2019/10/15 19:25
This app has been the most efficient way for us to show our kids the plays in the huddle. We have built an entire playbook out for ever game. We take the iPad to the huddle to show the play. No more plays on paper!!!
Great App
by J-Girl-01 on 2017/09/25 19:37
I've been using this app for 3 seasons now. Being able to share the playbook with coaches and players is a plus. I like being able to print out wristband sized play sheets for my QB and D play caller. Just makes the job of coaching easier.
Suggested Improvements!
by xXsamburgerXx on 2019/08/13 11:58
i absolutely love the app and i’ve been using it for the past 3 years. and it has helped me considerably when communicating concepts with the Special Olympics Flag Football community. some areas i would like to see improved: differentiating between pre-snap motions and an offensive shift. also i would like to have the ability to watch a play design unfold...like, draw it up then press play and watch how the little animated players execute what drew up. Thank You, Samuel Benitez
Great app!!
by hansum80 on 2017/10/23 17:08
I was looking for a way to create plays for a youth flag team. Once I watched the tutorials it made it pretty simple to customize plays. I would definitely recommend this app to others.
Glitch City With This App
by Vancebo1 on 2017/10/08 12:48
It sure has promise though. The patterns randomly disappear. That's frustrating when you are in the middle of coaching. I try restarting the app and my tablet but I never know when they will reappear. I would rate it 3 stars if that could get fixed. What it needs is the ability to illustrate patterns in two different colors from the same player. The printing and sharing works well.
Bigger Field Or Smaller Player Icons
by Maddenfan4life2016 on 2019/12/13 17:21
The overall workings and idea of the app are great, but field is too small to show any advanced plays/play art. Need to either be able to turn your phone sideways for a larger field and or be able to make the player icons smaller to have more room for play design.
Can you extend distance
by mc coach on 2019/05/12 19:21
Can you move the center line forward so you can get more room behind the center and qb ?
Great program great support
by champ coack k on 2019/08/28 01:53
Buy the Pro, well worth it, you’ll be an expert in 15 minutes, easy to use, tutorials to learn and quick helpful support!
Thank you!
by Anthony...123456789 on 2019/09/13 19:10
Thank you for such a great app. I’ve been using this app for years. Hands down its the best football play design app for flag football.
Great app, but i don’t like the price for unlimited plays.
by gcdub eu IM SO MADD on 2019/10/12 20:28
This is an awesome app, but the price is too high. I don’t like that we have to play 15 LITERAL BUCKS just for unlimited FRICKIN’ plays. Please just let us have unlimited plays no matter what dude!
Great
by Pkong on 2018/04/27 01:32
Got everything working smoothly again. Enjoying the app
Not worth your time

This app is buggy, doesn’t share the full playbook, and doesn’t even show me the correct number of plays for my teammates. You’re better off drawing them yourself
Highly recommended

It’s a great app with great support. I’m gonna spread the word to our whole league.
Issues

Great app to draw up plays. I am having issues signing up for account so I can send the playbook to the other coach
Good app
by Mo funny on 2012/09/28 14:28
I like this app a lot. Not only to draw up plays, but play calling on game day. In addition to rounded routes, I would LOVE to see the ability to customize rosters for each category. It is awesome that you can customize the order of the plays in category without changing the overall order (all offensive plays). The makes scripting your plays easy. If the app could also save a particular roster in each category, I wouldn't have to adjust on the fly at the end of each quarter. We play 2 halves, but I try to substitute at the half way point in each half, at a dead ball. I have created 4 categories (1st Q, 2nd Q, etc.) and have picked specific plays for the players playing that quarter. Without calling a timeout, I'll have to frantically drag new names to positions while calling the play in the huddle. If this change could be made, I'd give this 5 stars. Thanks.
Making more plays
by chicagCrazy52 on 2019/10/12 00:20
I like the system but do not like you have to pay to make a bigger play book
Great job!

When I needed help, Jeremy was very attentive, professional, and handled my situation. Thanks!!
Really
by Lizzm2279 on 2018/10/06 19:29
Who would be stupid enough to pay 15 dollars to make plays? My flag football team can make better plays on paper.
Wish it had more than 8 players
by Spazzo13 on 2019/08/16 16:54
I coach a 9 on 9. Want to use the app but will need to find one with 9 players
Ok

How do I draw a route lol
4 Stars, needs more features to earn 5...
by NewCoach on 2012/01/05 02:52
This app should more appropriately be called "crippled" instead of "free." How many coaches are really going to use only 3 plays? Anyone who actually wants to use the app for what it's indended for is then forced to purchase the PRO upgrade. But the PRO features really just unlock functionality that should be there from the beginning. IMHO, the PRO version of the app should instead be a $0.99 to $3 at most "Basic" version, and then when you spend $10 on the PRO version you get more advanced features not found in "Basic". Stuff like being able to edit routes, animation of routes, sime kind of league/game/team organization, etc. I'm sending my suggestions to the developers - hopefully future updates will incorporate some of them and make me feel like my $10 was well spent, instead of feeling like I was forced to buy.
Great app but needs a few tweaks to make it perfect!
by Nickkinicole on 2012/03/25 03:30
This is exactly what I was looking for, other than a few minor discrepancies. I really like the fact that you can have more than a couple of categories. A couple of things are missing though. The ability to assign each player a color instead of a letter, changing line styles/colors to indicate motion or where the ball is going, the ability to add a text box for notes, and the option to add single lines or arrows. Hopefully I will se e these changes in the near future as then I would def feel like I got my 9.99 out of it.
This App won't guarantee a win, but it sure helps!
by Fighting Irish Coach on 2013/10/01 20:13
I have been coaching flag football for 3rd and 4th graders for the past three years. The first year, we didn't win a game and I tried to use printed plays in a notebook. Last year I found this app and used it. We haven't lost a game since I have used this to run our offense. Our team won the championship last year and we are 4-0 so far this season. The kids love it. They see their name on the screen and know exactly what to do when they break the huddle. The app will not make your kids run faster or catch the ball every time, but it gives them the confidence to execute their role on the team, because they aren't second guessing themselves on the line of scrimmage. if you coach flag football and don't utilize this app, you are crazy.
This App changes Flag Football playmaking
by Susan Farley on 2012/03/11 04:18
You won't find a better flag football app anywhere. It will soon be the playmaking standard! I'm rating it a 5 because it is the best flag football app out there. Sure there are some improvements that can be made but lets be supportive and promote the app so that we can see all the improvements we're all looking for. The designers have been very open to feedback and honestly want to provide us with the best product. An app like this has the potential to put those very expensive playmaker websites out of business or at least make them more reasonable. Please include color coding instead of just X's and O's. It would also be nice to have the ability to show zone D somehow! Keep up the good work guys and can't wait for the next update!
Cooler than a coaching clip board
by PJtrades on 2015/01/06 20:12
This is a great app for coaching youth flag football. Just getting ready to start our season so it hasn't been game tested yet, but is easy to use and a great way to draw up and test plays. The ability to print out playbooks and wristband cards is huge! We will most likely not use the iPad at games because of the difficulty seeing the screen in the bright sun and because the weather is unpredictable. There are only a couple of features I would add. Because this is for flag football, it should have a way to add a route to someone who has pitched the ball (ie, the QB pitches to HB and then runs a route himself) The other feature this needs is the ability to show hand-offs and fakes.
This is the app I have been looking for!
by PWChongo on 2017/02/11 14:04
For flag football, I have always look for an app that would make entering my plays easy. In addition, I wanted to have something the kids could see easily on the iPad and that I could print as well. This app allows you to do that and whole lot more. Drawing plays is easy. Changing positions is easy. Duplicating plays is easy. The whole thing is just easy to use. Then you can mail yourself your playbook or send to your coaches. It allows you to print wrist plays for your kids and everything else. The only draw back is that the app is a little pricey but helk...these guys thought of everything and the app is well worth it.
Great App
by devojose on 2014/03/19 22:01
I was given an opportunity to coach my brother's flag football team along with some of my friends and this app led us first time kid coaches against a group of experienced adults to a close semi-final loss. The app makes our plays easy to make and easy for the kids to understand. The wristband print allowed us to implement a high tempo offense that kept teams off guard. And plays were easily able to be called from the sidelines as I called out defenses and the others called out offensive plays. Overall good app maybe an option to add the option toss
Really, all that in one app?!
by AppThatWorks on 2012/03/14 18:06
There are several options available, but no other app meets the potential of this app. This app is EXACTLY what is needed. The expense is worth the time saved. The updates I've been told are coming even raise the value! I downloaded the free version and upgraded within 10 minutes. I don't even normally buy apps! 90% of my apps are free, but this was a must purchase. As with any app there are pros and cons, but the pros out weigh the cons. Email in suggestions, and they add it to the list of possibilities. Great Job guys, thank you! TR
Great app for creating and sharing plays,
by dspino123 on 2016/01/22 18:36
I've used this for 3 flag football seasons so far. Easy to use collaborate with assistant coaches. Easy to print great wrist cards (and to email the PDF to parents to print). Suggestions for improvement: add the ability to add text (key words/notes) right to the play diagram so that it's printed on the wrist card too, also add the ability to add a 2nd route option in a different line color (currently it's only one route per player)- with this I'd be able to fit a heck of a lot more on one play card.
Just what I wanted.
by Mirandez on 2012/02/08 02:56
This app is just what I was looking for. Great for CoEd flag football. Lots of features and easy to use, and the developer has been very responsive to my questions and thoughts. I really want to give it 5 stars, however, I can't seem to get past the player roster tab. I don't see the need for it to be permanently displayed once I set my roster, plus you lose valuable space on the screen with no added benefit. I will rate it five stars once I have the ability to hide the roster tab. I definitely recommend this app to anyone.
Need Pitch
by F Low on 2012/02/10 08:06
This truly is a great app. The recent update made it even better. However, couple of more things are needed: 1. QB pitch cannot be shown yet 2. Each directional arrow should be able to have a task assigned to it. For example, you may have a block and then roll out to take a position to receive the ball. The way the app is now, you cannot show the block at the end of the first directional arrow. I hope those changes would come soon. Thank you for such a great app.
Great app but...
by Rt1987 on 2012/04/03 19:02
I have the paid version and love the app. However I would like to be able to put the players names on the play for each play and not have it do it for every single player I have more than 6 people on the team and I have certain plays for certain people so I would appreciate it if that was changed so that in the game I can go right to the play and not have to swap out names because once I do that player gets changed on all the other lays to.
Exceptional Youth 5 v 5 App
by Kellym00 on 2014/01/20 00:19
I've used the PRO version of this app in two seasons of 6 & 7 year old 5v5 flag football. For offensive play calling it is exceptional. I can diagram virtually any play - reverses, options, motion, etc. - quickly, easily, and (most importantly) understandably for the kids. We huddle, they look at the play, find their name, and instantly know where to line up and what to do. Making personnel changes on the fly is also painless - just drag and drop any name on the roster. And if I can't make a practice or a game I can email the play book to my assistant coach to print out and use. I haven't found it as useful on defense but that side of the ball is typically less complicated and the benefits of this app aren't as important. The cost made me hesitate but I have absolutely gotten my money's worth. Solid tool, good purchase.
8-man Playbook
by Ruskin Florida on 2012/04/27 03:40
This is the best app for football plays. It's perfect for keeping all my plays at my fingertips and sorts for quick play calling. I purchased this app because of the ease of user, friendly interface, and with the recent update can print a playbook for each player and wristband without any effort. The developers quickly respond for support and listen to input to make their product better.
