Classroom Apps
Ingrid Whitaker is a 4th Grade Teacher at Pond Cove School in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. After her 30+ years in the classroom she knows what technology can help her educate her students, and worked with Ethan to design three apps for the iPhone and iPad. Her first and most popular is “Where Are My Student” that tracks how long one or more students have been in the bathroom, getting a drink, at Lost-and-Found or with Mom at the doctor’s office.
Coaching Apps
Ethan has been competing and coaching in various sports and levels since childhood. His experience and observations have led to several popular apps, including the Running Coach’s Clipboard, the defector standard for Cross Country and Track and Field Coaches. His other popular coaching Apps include the Track and Field Toolkit (an advanced and complete rewrite of the Running Coach’s Clipboard) and the the Basketball Playmaker.
College Visit Apps
College visits are fun and informative . . . but they can be stressful and disorganized. The College Navigator Series is a set of indispensable tools for high school students and their parents as they travel from school to school and explore what each has to offer. Each College Navigator has each campus mapped out . . . follow the pulsing blue dot as you walk from building to building. Tap on the admissions office flag; the chem building; the soccer field and the app will show you how to get there. Another tap launches an applicable web page. Ready to head to the next campus? Simply set the dials and the app displays a map and driving directions to the next admissions office. The College Navigator Series will make your college more effective, informative and enjoyable.
History Apps
In the late-1970s, Ethan became life-long friends with Dr. Emerson (“Tad”) Baker when they were roommates Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. Tad went on to become a Dean and Professor at Salem State University, renown author and the one of the foremost experts on the Salem Witchcraft Trials. Recently, Tad and Ethan have joined forces to develop History Apps, navigating users through battlefields and historic locations, including Gettysburg, Salem and Lexington & Concord.
Nature Apps
Ethan and his wife Ingrid are avid birders, traveling the country in search of new and rare feathered friends. Birders are notorious record keeps: what I saw; how many I saw; where and when I saw it; etc. We became frustrated that there was so little available in the way of apps that met our particular style of Birding . . . thus we created “Big Year Birding”.
Travel Apps
Our free Travel Apps are a series of navigation tools that guide users from Lobster Shack to Lobster Shack, Lighthouse to Lighthouse, Antique Store to Antique Store, etc. Enjoy!!!!

Photo Finish:

Ideal for Track and Field, Cross Country and Road Race directors . . . allowing for the timing and recap of small to medium sized events . . . without multiple stop watches, expensive timing systems or popsicle stick handouts.

Simply select the event via easy to use spinners and tap the START button at the sound of the gun or horn.  Line the App’s Finish Line guide with your actual finish line and record the athletes as they cross the finish line.

It’s as simple as that!!!!

 

The Track and Field Toolkit records 10 low-resolution photos a second . . . overlaid with the finish line marker and the time.

After the race:

  • Scroll through all athletes as they crossed the finish line with their respective times.
  • Determine winners and losers via photo finishes (by seeing the last few steps of a close race).
  • E-mail, message, save and/or print individual finish photos

 

Cross Country Scoring:

Allows coaches or spectators to dynamically score a Cross Country meet in real time at any point in a race. As the runners go by, the Track and Field Toolkit scores multiple teams simultaneously, taking into account the complexities of displacement and incomplete teams.

The users simply selects the teams in a particular meet and then at any point in a race (i.e. mile mark, halfway mark or finish) simply clicks on the various teams as the athletes go by. After each touch (or click), the entire meet is rescored. Thus a coach can see how a trailing #5 runner is affecting his team or how a #7 can actually win the meet.

The App….

Supports non-standard scoring systems. In addition to the conventional 5 runner system, the user can score meets with any number of runners from 3 to 12.

Also supports variable numbers of displaced or non-scoring runners.

Gone are the days of counting on fingers, making incorrect assumptions and math errors. The Track and Field Toolkit does it all for you. In addition, the Track and Field Toolkit can be used to score several intermediate points on a course (i.e. mile mark, halfway mark or finish) E-mail the results to one’s personal computer or other interested parties.

 

Performance Comparison:

Your athlete just finished a 5 Mile Race . . . ever wonder what an equivalent 10K  finish time might be, taking into account the slightly slower pace?  What does her best 5K convert to over a Marathon?  How about a mile?

The Performance Comparison uses the fast , easy spinner on your iPhone or iPad to calculate these equivalent times/races.

There are several popular formulas for projecting a running performance at a distance based upon the performance at another.  This App uses two of them:

  • Pete Riegel: Originally Published in 1977 in Runners World
  • David F. Cameron: Which uses the 10 ten performances at various distances and uses them to computer comparison distances

Finally, the app averages the two results.

Obviously, the closer the distance (i.e. 5 Mile and 10K) the more accurate the result.

 

Throwing Events:

Record each weight throw using the the popup spinner, showing the results in feet and meters (the conversion is done both ways).  Each throw is associated to an athlete you defined earlier in the Athlete Database.  The Track and Field Toolkit also records passes and fouls.

 

Horizontal Jumps:

Record each Long or Triple Jump using the the popup spinner, showing the results in feet and meters (the conversion is done both ways).  Each jump is associated to an athlete you defined earlier in the Athlete Database.  The Track and Field Toolkit also records passes and fouls.

Vertical Jumps:

Track a High Jump or Triple Jump Competition using a toggle switch Clear/Miss/Pass and use the popup spinner to designate the height (in feet and meters, the conversion is done both ways).  Each jump is associated with an athlete you defined earlier in the Athlete Database.  The Track and Field Toolkit also records passes and fouls.

 

Records:

World/American/Olympic/Collegiate/Junior/High School, Indoor/Outdoor/Road, Men/Women . . . all major records reside in one convenient location.  Many of the World Records have Videos attached.

 

Athlete Database: 

Enter (or import) an Athlete once and be able to select him or her with a tap in the Meet Timing, Workout Timing, Field Events, etc.  Optionally you can assign a photo to each athlete.

The Track and Field Toolkit is designed to operate without an active Internet connection making it convenient for Road Races, Cross Country Meets, or Tracks without WIFI.  Share your recorded results when you can connect again.

The Track and Field Toolkit is ideal for anyone interested in Track and Field, Road Racing, Race Walking and/or Cross Country.

Basketball Playmaker

Basketball Playmaker Image

The Basketball Playmaker is a revolutionary tool for coaches, scouts, press and fans enabling basketball plays to be digitally created and saved for future reference.

iPad and iPhone

Modeled after the ubiquitous coach’s whiteboard, the Basketball Playmaker provides offense and defense avatars that can be dragged around the screen (the court) to simulate plays and formations. As plays are designed, the system stores movement, passes and shots and the associated track lines. At playback time “tracking lines” can be optionally turned on and off in “Play” and “Step” Mode.

Plays can be saved and played back at any time (during a timeout, a practice or a bench conversation). Snapshots of these plays can be made with a click of a button and the resulting “photo” can be emailed, printed (to Air print Devices) and/or filed as needed.

Support for iPad external devices allows use with projectors, HDTV’s and monitors.

The Basketball Playmaker has hundreds of predefined formation combinations (i.e. 1-2-3 defense vs. post offense, or man to man vs. perimeter, etc.). The court can be specified as anything from predefined Professional to International to College to High School to Middle School layouts . . . and the court itself can be sized and scrolled via the iPad/iPhone pinch gesture.

Player avatars are represented with standard 1 through 5 nomenclatures; letters (PG, SG, SF, PF, C); uniform numbers or even player names. In addition, the color of the player avatars as well as the court itself is totally in control of the user.

Designed by a software designer with 25 years of experience as a programmer and as a coach . . . the Basketball Playmaker is designed for the large iPad screen. The Basketball Playmaker will run on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod touch . . . but is not recommended due to the small screen size.

Simply tap on an approximate court coordinate and select the shooter; specify a hit or miss; and whether the shooter was fouled while shooing. Made shot appear as a green basketball, missed as a red . . . with a user specified Uniform Number, Player Name or even a player photograph or avatar.

History of shots can be toggled off and on and displayed in various subsets and combination of subsets;

•All/None
•Home Team Only
•Away Team Only
•Made Shots
•Missed Shots
•Individual Players
•By Period

A special foul shot screen track free throws and places them into the continuous running score.

Games are saved and can be recalled at anytime. All data is stored locally on the iPad with no need for a Wi-Fi or intent connection.

Games can be replayed shot by shot (watch as the score changes shot to shot to shot).

Game Recaps can be broken out by the parameters mentioned above and then

•Printed
•E-Mailed as PDF or Image
•Images can be save (incorporate in other apps)
•And complete game statistical breakdown can be printed or emailed.

Unlimited number of games, teams, athletes and shots are supported by the Basketball Shot Maker with no add-on charges.

The Basketball Playmaker is a serious tool for those that are serious about basketball.

After each touch (or click), the entire meet is restored. Thus a coach can see how a trailing #5 runner is affecting his team or how a #7 can actually win a meet.

Gone are the days of counting on fingers, making incorrect assumptions and math errors. In addition, XC Scoring can be used to score several intermediate points on a course (i.e. mile mark, halfway mark or finish) and then e-mail the results to one’s personal computer or other interested parties.

Birders are notorious record keeps: what I saw; how many I saw; where and when I saw it; etc. We became frustrated that there was so little available in the way of apps that met our particular style of Birding . . . thus we created “Big Year Birding”.

Big Year Birding offers all birders from novice to expert a fast and easy way to record sightings in the field.

iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch

Android

Whether you are doing a Big Year, local Christmas Bird Count or simply keeping track of the birds in your own backyard, Big Year Birding makes recording your sightings easy, fun and fast! You can even create eBird upload files with the simple click of a button!

You spotted a bird? Click “add sighting” and the App. immediately records the time, date and the exact location using GPS coordinates (including city, state and nation). Your bird will be displayed with a photo icon on a map and in a sighting table, sortable by date or bird. Start entering the name of the bird in the “bird search” bar and the app will pull up a list of birds.

Not sure what bird you’ve seen, click the “Local Birds” Button and see what birds are historically seen in your current location (all USA counties, Canadian provinces and territories), by month.  Helpful photos and sighting frequecy plus links to on-line resources make identification a breeze.

Planning a vacation or have downtime on an out of town business trip, the “Local Birds” feature lets you research what is commonly seen this month, next month or any month in the future anywhere in the ABA region.

Identified the bird by ear? In the “comments” section, click on the “identified by ear” button and it will be noted. The same can be done with buttons for male, female, and to identify the setting as a public or private site. There is also plenty of space to enter your own comments. Tap the “count” button and scroll to quickly enter the number you have sighted.

The App works great in remote areas without internet and/or mobile connections.

Every North America bird species recognized by the American Birding Association is available in the Big Year  Birding database. When you enter a bird, you will see its photo. Like your own photo better? Simply click “Your Photos” and you can add it. There are links to the Cornell and Wikipedia web sites for more information about your bird.

Chose the wrong bird? No problem, you can easily delete it before adding it to your list by choosing “cancel”. If you’ve already added it, swipe to the left and you will see an option to delete it.

You can manually enter very, very unusual North American erratics but you shouldn’t have to as the app currently lists 1059 birds . . .  with 126 erratics.  Now that the ABA has added Hawaii in the ABA Region, we’ve added 76 “Hawaiian birds” to the App.

Export your sighting (or a subset) to another device with Big Year Birding installed.  Ideal if you use an iPhone in the field and an iPad at home or if you’re sharing lists among family and/or friends.

If you use an Apple Watch (not required):

*   You can now check your Sightings (do I have an Anna’s Hummingbird?)

*   Check you counts (How many birds to I have this month?)

*   And even add a sighting from your wrist (Your phone is in your backpack)

Big Year Birding is highly customizable. Set the app to display your sightings by date, location or bird. Choose to view all of your birds, those spotted on specific dates, by specific location or display your unique birds only.  With one tap you can get your life list, your year to date list, your home state list, or review your sightings in previous years

Your sightings can be shared through text, email, social media like Facebook, and uploaded to your eBird account.

Created by birders for birders, Big Year Birding is sure to become as indispensable in the field as your pair of binoculars!
