Now built for iOS 7 and later with 64-bit support! Hockey WhiteBoard is an application which allows you to display player and puck positioning as you would on a portable dry-erase hockey coach's white board. It is a universal application that works on the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Simply drag the players and puck around with your fingertips as you explain to a player how to position themselves on the ice! You can utilize pinch/zoom/scroll/rotate gestures and controls to focus on any area of the ice you'd like (or leave it at a full-ice display). Teams can be represented by a wide variety of colors and you can have any number of players on each team on the ice at any time. The letter designation on each player can be left at the default "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. You also have the option of displaying a label (such as the player's name) underneath the circle. Player positions, labels and designations can be saved for future recall. You can also save team data separately for use with multiple white boards. Originally released for the iPhone in March of 2009, it is one of the original applications of its kind! It's been totally re-written to take advantage of the latest and greatest features in iOS and to implement some of the great suggestions/feature requests received from users over the years! Visit for more information and to access the Hockey WhiteBoard user manual, support pages and responses to user feedback. Need to draw lines on the white board? Activate one of the three drawing pens to draw different colored lines on the white board. By default the pens are red, green and blue but you have the option of changing the color of any given pen. To erase lines, simply use the erase control in the icon palette. iPhone and iPod touch users can also 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 Hockey WhiteBoard is as easy as double tapping anywhere on the ice (for iPhone and iPod touch users) or simply using the on screen controls to the side of the ice surface (for iPad users). The controls area is where you set the number of players on the ice, team colors, the trailing lines function and is where you go to save the current whiteboard and load previously saved ones. Hockey WhiteBoard supports some of the latest features in iOS such as iCloud! Team data and white board data can optionally be saved to iCloud allowing you to access them from any of your iOS devices. The same data can be easily edited from both an iPad and an iPhone/iPod touch with ease and without loss of precision. Other more recent iOS features such as support for retina displays, printing to AirPrint printers and utilizing screen mirroring through AirPlay are supported. Hockey 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 ice? Use Hockey 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.

    I can't erase any of the lines after they're drawn. Great otherwise, but it's unusable to me because I can't get rid of them.
  • Perfect

    By LiveHockey
    Does exactly what its supposed to do. Very customizable. I wouldn't replace my grease board with it due to it's size on the iPhone but in a pinch or quick on ice drill description it's absolutely perfect for it. If I had an iPad I would assume that it would replace my grease board. It saves plays and no pens to keep track of.

    I go to save a drill and there no button to save or go back? It is stuck. I have the iPhone 4.
  • Needs features

    By Mckcoach
    iPad version doesn't have a way to put away the settings dialog. It is always present and you lose a third of your real-estate. To make this useful, there needs to be animation recording. For practice time this eliminates the need to remember the drills and this can be used as practice planning tool as well. All ills can be selected before and grouped into "practice #1", etc..
  • Best in class

    By soarmag
    Hockey WhiteBoard is the best app in its class. Each team can have a custom color and players can have custom identifications - such as initials or uniform number; don't underestimate the importance of that, especially with younger players ("OK kids, we're red and they're blue." "But, coach, we're black and they're white." ...). Moving a player can provide a trailing line and you can draw directly on the board, independent of player movement. On top of that, the app offers the option to change the number of skaters on the rink (extra attacker, penalty kill, etc.) and the view of the ring (full/half). It is beautiful on the iPad and still very functional on the iPhone/iPod touch. Finally, the creator was very responsive to email when I contacted him.
  • Finally works

    By jimlogan11
    It looks like the latest version fixed the crashing issue. The app works as advertised. Great
  • Last 2 versions have not worked

    By G_Reaper38
    The last time this app worked was two versions ago. I used to use this regularly but now can not. As of now, all this does is try to boot. Fix the app and I will rate higher
  • Crash

    By johnwoods76
    It's crashing on my iPhone too (3GS updated to iOS4). It worked before.
  • Sweet it is awsome

    Needs two things - Rotate letters on players for 1/2 ice landscape view. Need higher contrast colors to tell teams apart easier.
