 Football Coaching Resource News - New Football Playbook app for Apple's iPad

"Rather than having to search for plays drawn on napkins or filed in three-ring binders, this puts everything in one place. The idea is to let coaches spend more time developing football players and less time designing plays."

Assistant coach for the NFL's Buffalo Bills and Chicago Bears, and the University of North Carolina.

Football coaches who have owned Apple's iPad and experienced frustration at the lack of football coaching-specific apps may just have had their prayers answered in the form of a new, free football playbook app, courtesy of 1st Down Technologies . Founded by Coach Charlie Coiner,  a career football coach with over 25 years of experience in the NFL and at the Division 1 Collegiate level, 1st Down Technologies was formed to develop The First Down Playbook -  an interactive app for Apple's wildly successful iPad tablet computer.

The FirstDown Playbook can be expanded to include up to 2,600 offensive plays used by college and professional football teams, and is aimed at football coaches at all levels, from youth leagues to the pros.  Launched officially at the 2012 AFCA Convention, the FirstDown Playbook can be used in a number of ways, including as an instant-access, mobile reference tool for offensive systems and plays, or as a creative resource to help a coach develop his or her own playbook.

With The FirstDown Playbook app, the first 50 plays are free, and the full play library ..2600 plays in all, can be added for only $19.99!

The FirstDown PlayBook app lets teams browse through plays, tag and save favorite plays, create customized playbooks and even share plays through email.  A filter lets youth league coaches select from plays that are designed to match the physical ability and maturity level of their players.
