[prMac.com] Easton, PA - Announcing that Matthew Berry, the developer of Soccer Dad, has released the latest update for iPhone and iPod touch users. The application is a new tool that eases some of the administration challenges that come with coaching a kids' soccer team and adds an element of fun, too. In addition to helping with regular tasks such as managing information, players and schedules, Soccer Dad makes it easy to communicate with parents, organize events and snap photos. The app has also been optimized for the iPhone 4's retina display.
Soccer Dad is the result of practical experience in the field. Developer Matthew Berry is the father of eight children, all of whom he coaches in soccer. "Frustrated by a lack of tools for making the job of a volunteer coach easier, I decided to build an app for that," says Berry. Now, he finds his coaching duties less stressful and more fun and efficient.
With Soccer Dad, coaches are able to use their iPhone or iPod touch devices to keep track of stats and player contacts, create schedules and rotations, take pictures with a device's camera to link to players, and organize events. The app streamlines a fair and efficient management of multiple teams throughout a season.
When setting schedules for games, practices, events or when rescheduling, Soccer Dad will mark the dates on a user's calendar so they can be seen in a glance for quick referencing.
These are some of the features offered in the Soccer Dad application:
* Fairly and efficiently manage and organize multiple teams by season
* Easy access of player contact information - quickly communicate with parents
* Organize events and have them display in your iPhone calendar
* Keep track of volunteers
* Replace your stopwatch and clipboard - lets you know when it's time to change players, even if it's in your pocket.
* Send emails without ever leaving the app
* Use the camera and photo library for player pictures
* Optimized for the iPhone 4 retina display
With the new iPhone 4 hitting the market recently, Berry has ensured that Soccer Dad is prepared for making full and best use of the device's amazing retina display. All of the technical capabilities aside, the most important feature of Soccer Dad is probably that it allows soccer coaches more time to enjoy the kids and watch them improve and grow in the sport.
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iPhone iOS 4.0 or later
* 4.6 MB
