  • Best overall for animating plays Feb 6, 2015

    By Nickelmack
    The only time it freezes is if you press screen twice before you move a guy. Only wish you could use numbers instead of PG, etc. None of the apps have everything, but this one comes the closest.

    I believe this app could be great but I had a few issues. 1. The court does not have the out of bounce space. 2.can't share with my players cuz that don't have the app! And even when the do its why to complicated. 3. The plays are not flowed a lot of stoppage. 4. Custom features are cool but too bad they dont stay as default. And more but no more letters to write....
  • Fantastic app Oct 22, 2020

    By Woooooooooowoooooooooow
    Share, needs to have to option to text plays to other users. Full and half court are fantastic. Needs a “shot” option. Needs an option for sideline OB or OB under. And jumpball play option. Other than that, this is a fantastic offensive whiteboard app.

    I have tried just about every basketball clipboard app and this one is by far the best! Animation is easy to set up and it allows me to save all my plays to show my team over and over. We'll worth the $3

    Emailing does not work, limited to always using 5 players...
  • Defense? Nov 9, 2013

    By DTNedbalek
    This is exactly what I am looking for minus the ability to chart out my defenses (I.E - fc trap, hc trap, junk zone).

    Good app, except... only paying users can view saved plays. I intended to create plays and share them with the team that I coach, but we are a low socio-economic school... I'm happy to pay for the app to create & save plays but I can't expect all my players to do the same. I would really like the free or even a cheaper $1 version which could be a saved plays 'viewer' I would also really like a way (could be an alternative to my complaint above) to save a play as a video file which could be e-mailed or a URL link. Not all my players have smart phones - I'd really like to be able to Facebook them a link to view a video file showing the animation of my plays. With those couple features this app would be a 5-star winner!!! It would also be really REALLY helpful if I could login to the app so all my plays automatically show up on the app on all my devices!!

    Developer is responsive and the app is solid, easy to use and works great! Have tried lots of these types of bball play design apps and this one is the best of the 15 or so I've tried.

    All it does is freeze over and over. Looks great if it would work. I paid 2.99 for a app I can't use. I would of been better off buying something on the dollar menu.

  • Multiple players moving at once Nov 10, 2018

    By this ,,, is awesome
    Unless I’m missing something it doesn’t allow you to move players simultaneously. I don’t have any plays where 1 player is moving and the other 4 are standing still.

    Doesn't work well at all. Locked up the very first time I tried to draw up a play. Now I can't do any thing with it. A waste of $3. I'll keep looking.

  • The #1 Basketball App for coaches. Period Nov 3, 2011

    By branham daniels
    I have literally purchased every possible basketball playbook app or play animation app and literally none of them can do what this app does. Definitely the best. With a few updates it will just keep getting better. With my apple tv I can stream the plays on the 50" tv in our locker room

  • Best So Far Dec 4, 2011

    By Sujag96
    I coach 4th grade boys and this app has been a wonderful teaching tool. I love the animation as it shows the trails and movement. I like the ability to "pass" the ball. The one add I would like to see is the ability to actually draw on the screen. That would be a tremendous help to highlight certain aspects of your plays. iPlaybook is great for drawing, but can't compare to the animation of this app. You're almost there!! Keep up the good work and thanks for this app.
  • Okay, especially for the price Nov 28, 2011

    By HKTourist
    One thing missing though is the ability to move multiple players simultaneously. Only can move one player at a time which doesn't mimic a play properly. But aside from that a pretty good app. I tried a free one and it sucked.
  • Great Play Builder Dec 23, 2012

    By Dolphusiii
    Best play maker I have used (I have tried quite a few)...hands down. The one thing I am really looking for is an app that lets me draw up plays AND allows me to create a practice plan; I would love it if it were this app that did it.
  • Awesome Dec 8, 2012

    By Fallriver coach
    Great app for teaching youths basketball. Would like to see multiple movements at once as well. Kids just seem to grasp a concept a little easier when they see it in actual motion on a piece of technology.

  • Basket soccer Nov 6, 2011

    By SoccerCoachFun
    I like this app, but don't love it. I have downloaded almost all others, and this is the closest to functional. It is nice animation, but functionality is key. What is missing that would make this a great app is the multiple motions for each step. If I am coaching a-team boys, and they don't know all 3 or 5 should move together on a motion play, then what good is it. 'soccer dad' app is by far the best sports app on this app store. I was asking the developer if he would make this same app for basketball. All these basketball apps can learn from that developer. His solution is complete. Also, what is missing in this app is putting a name with the position like other apps. If this developer would make these small changes, the this app would be great. Thanks.
  • Good but could be better May 8, 2011

    By Coachrog
    Easy to use and good graphics. Missing a critical feature which would be the ability to save a drawn up play. Also needs to have features like setting screens and shooting. Multiple options during plays would also be great. Hopefully, an update would add these features.
  • Save plays and show screens May 23, 2011

    By Gruofsubdtjv
    Would be a great 5 star but need to be able to save the plays that I record and also be able to have a screen or pick icon where screens are set.
