[prMac.com] Campinas, Brazil - ClanSoft today is pleased to introduce TacticalPad 1.0.1 for iPad, their Sports app that allows soccer coaches, journalists, and players to analyze and discuss soccer tactics anytime, anywhere. Featuring high quality graphics, the app can project multiple tactical boards simultaneously and its digital ink functionality allows coaches to easily draw multi-color lines, dashes, and arrows on included tactical formation boards. Player icons can display custom names and jerseys, and users may save formations and boards.
TacticalPad, a mobile version of ClanSoft's Windows software, has been especially designed and tested for use on the iPad. Currently, the Windows version is used extensively in Europe and South America by professional, college, high school, and elementary school coaches, assistant coaches, and performance analysts. TacticalPad is a complete tool for coaching staffs, journalists, sports enthusiasts, and bloggers. There is no simpler or more powerful way to illustrate and discuss soccer tactics than TacticalPad.
