Basketball WhiteBoard is an application which allows you to display player and ball positioning on a full court or half court display. It is a universal application that works on the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Simply drag the players and ball around with your fingertips as you explain to a player how to position themselves on the court!
Teams can be represented by a wide variety of colors and you can have 1-5 players on each team on the court at any time. The letter designation on each player can be set to one of 5 pre-set position letters OR you can put a custom letter/number combination (as many as three characters on the iPad, two on other iOS devices) to represent a player's initials or their number. Player positions and designations can be saved for future recall. Need to draw lines on the white board? Switch to drawing mode and use your finger to draw arrows, circles or whatever else you need to! iPad users have an "erase" button to clear the lines; iPhone and iPod touch users need only give the device a good shake to clear the lines. Want to show where a player came from when moved? Turn on the "trailing lines" feature and a narrow line will be drawn along the path that each player is moved. This illustrates where the player "came from" before that player reached their current position.
Configuring Basketball WhiteBoard is as easy as double tapping anywhere on the court (for iPhone and iPod touch users) or simply using the on screen controls to the side of the court display (for iPad users). The controls area is where you set the number of players on the court, team colors, the trailing lines function and is where you go to save the current whiteboard and load previously saved ones.
Basketball WhiteBoard allows you to use your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad as a tool to help teach players of any age. Younger players are drawn in to the high-tech solution and will not be as easily distracted when compared to using a traditional white/clip board. Not on the court? Use Basketball WhiteBoard to set up a scenario and then ask your players to move the dots to the right position! It can be used as a teaching tool both on and off the bench.
