This story is a follow up on two previous posts about the technology that Springbok Sevens coach Paul Treu uses.
In April 2010 we reported on (Springbok 15 assistant coach) Gary Gold and how he uses the Apple iPad in his coaching job. That story also features a software package called SportsCode and Treu gives us his impression of it.
Then, late last year, in a Singapore Cricket Club Sevens video clip on YouTube, we noticed that Paul was using his iPad while going over some tactics with his players. We even took a screen-grap of the piece of hardware:
However, some eagle-eyed software developers in Wellington, New Zealand had a closer look and identified the software on Paul’s computer as Coachpad, an application that they developed.
