[prMac.com] Carbondale, CO - Announcing that TKRM, LLC, the developers of Tennis Coach, has released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. This Apple Design Award nominee is the first and only software of its kind, legally offering coaching to players after the start of a match. Tennis Coach marks a major change in how the sport of tennis will be played from now on.
In a history making move, TKRM developers have launched an application that falls under the designation of 'legal assistance' on tennis courts worldwide. Meeting the strict requirements of the U.S.T.A. and Federation Tennis, the Tennis Coach app is now allowed to accompany and assist players during a match. This is a first in a sport that forbids coaching once a game begins.
The app is not like a drills or lesson program. Rather, it offers practical tips and reminders that players often forget in the heat of a tennis match. Based on each individual's level of skill, Tennis Coach issues reminders to help a user correct a technique or remember something about the way an opponent plays. In short, it keeps a player focused and on track. As the first-ever coach allowed on the court, Tennis Coach is changing the face of tennis history and how the sport will be played forevermore.
Some of the features offered by Tennis Coach follow:
* In legal compliance with U.S.T.A. and Federation Tennis rules
* Offers practical tips for play improvement based on individual skill level
* Issues any entered reminders about opponent's techniques, strengths or weaknesses
* Helps to keep players focused and on track during a tennis match
* Is the first app of its kind
* Is the only coaching allowed after a game starts
* Nominated in the Apple Design Awards 2010 contest
In addition to making sports history, Tennis Coach has been nominated in the WWDC10 Apple Design Awards 2010. Whether it takes the top prize or not, put altogether, the facts seem to indicate that this application is a winner in its own right. With the introduction of this tool on the courts, tennis will never be played the same way again. Players will now be able to consult the application to get tips and nudging reminders of how to stay on top of their game and operate at peak performance. To improve your own game or discover more about this precedent setting app, please visit the website or the Tennis Coach page on iTunes.
