This app is nearly perfect! Does exactly what I need for tracking substitutions and has brilliant ability to include or exclude players and have different formations. One very small feature request: ability to specify a set of games as part of a tournament or event, so I can track playing time across multiple games that are less than a full season.

Good start but it's missing some key stuff to make it practical during an actual game. 1. If you accidentally exit out of a running game or if your device shuts it down because you're switching to other apps you're using or something like that, all the data for that game and the positions are lost! This is a pretty big deal in the middle of a game. 2. There seems to be an almost inaudible notification sound when it's -warning- you to sub players, but there is no sound at all when it's actually time. There should be a sound for both. And it would be nice if you could choose from a list of sounds pick something louder. And turning vibration on should be an option. 3. You can't switch players around that are already on the field. For example, I can't switch a forward with a midfielder who are both already on the field. 4. It would be nice if there was an undo button. If you're in a hurry and make a substitution mistake but can't figure out what you did quickly, you could just tap undo. 5. Rosters are not listed alphabetically so if you add someone out of order, they're harder to find. Not a big deal but it would be nice. 6. There's no way to sync a game with another device. Also less of a big deal but it would sure be nice when you have two coaches. It would be extra handy if the app could track stats. The team manager could track stats from the other side of the field well you use it for substituting players. 7. This one is just a feature request but it would be great if you could color code players based on basic positions like Goalie, Forward, Mid or Defense, or multi-color code players who can crossover. That would make it super easy at just a glance to see who is best qualified to fill in for a player that is injured or tired. 8. Just another feature request... It might be nice if you could add player headshots that could then be used (at a faded level) as backgrounds of the player dots in the game grid. Maybe not so practical on a phone, but definitely nice on a tablet. 9. Another feature request... A way to track stats in-game would be cool. Goalie saves, shots and assists. *Fixing 1-3 would make it a practical app and jump it to a 4 out of 5 for me. But it's a good start and has some great potential if it continues to be developed.

Hi Mickey, thanks again for the great feedback! In the latest 2.4.0 version. 1,2,4,5 have been added. 3 can be done in regular mode but not in planned mode ( plan to add that later). 6 will be added later since many teams have multiple coaches. for 7, players can now be assigned to position but no color coding now. regards, Lin
Great, but missing a few key editing capabilities. For soccer, we really need to be able to edit the goal scorer. I entered the wrong child getting a goal, went back to change it after the game but couldn't find a way to edit it. Also, forgot to restart the timer and missed five minutes for the kids that were on the field at that time. Would be nice to have the ability to set a restart timer alarm like we have the alarm for subs. Great overall!
