Game Day “Put it all together”
Game day is why we put in all the hard work and effort! So far this week, you have learned all about every aspect of the CoachMe Web Edition, now it’s time to bring the other team on the field...The CoachMe Mobile App. When you have the combination of the two, you have truly gained the competitive edge and brought your team to the new generational era of football.
Today we take a look at the additional features the mobile app provides and how it collaborates with the web edition. A majority of the features work exactly the same, however there are a few things that the mobile app can do currently that are not available in the web edition (soon to come in web). Those features include, the passing feature (diagram and animate the path of the football), the chalk feature (telestration over the top of a play), and notes (ability to write notes on a specific play). As a CoachMe member, your account will include new features as they are released.
The passing feature is a great way to show players the path of the football in a passing play. To do this, start by drawing a passing play or recall one from your playbook. Then tap the football icon in the bottom toolbar. To begin the sequence, tap the player you want to start with the football (typically the center), next tap the player or the route tip you want the ball to go to next. This is described as the passing feature sequence, once you tap on the route tip of a player, you will only be able to tap on other route tips. As you tap through your sequence, you will see a black line and numbers that correspond with the order you have taped. Once your sequence is set, simply tap the play button and watch as the football snaps, runs, and passing through the sequence.

The new and improved chalk feature is great for quick instruction or to make coaching points to a player without modifying the play you have already saved. To enable the chalk feature, tap the options button in the top left, then tap on Chalk. You will see the original drawing toolbar is changed to the new chalk toolbar. You can tap on the chalk and start drawing, or tap on the gears (setting for chalk) and select the color and width of your chalk. Once you have drawn on the chalkboard, you can tap on the eraser to manually erase portions of the chalk drawing, or tap the undo button to erase the last line drawn. If you want to erase the entire telestration, tap on the trash can. To exit the chalk feature, tap the close button in the toolbar and original drawing features toolbar will return.

Adding notes to a play is great for coaching points or philosophies you want to keep stored with a particular play. To add notes, tap on options in the top left then tap on notes. You will see a pop up window that allows you to write in notes. Once you have entered your desired notes, tap the save button in the pop up window. This will bring your PlayBooks up and ask you which play you want these notes attached to. Now when you share that play with someone, they will be able to see the additional notes you have attached.
