For one we’ll look at simulation through types of games and real world applications to then apply to your real life teams for both management and communication.
The first application we’re going to look at is called Football Manager Touch. It is a new app that can be used on a tablet and offers a swift group of commands. There is a database with a multitude of players and you can work with a three dimensional engine that allows you to tweak training, tactical and other regiments to see how well your team does.

An overall app that has a comprehensive based system to manage your team out in the real world is also something called Team Snap. With this you’ll be able to manage your team from wherever you are in the world.
