Today we’re doing our happy dance in the TeamSnap offices!
Because we just released version 2.1 of our iOS app, which now runs natively on iPhone, iPod touch and yes, iPad. Go ahead and download the update right now. We’ll play some dramatic sports music while it’s installing…

Are you back? Great. Now fire up TeamSnap mobile on your iPad. Ooooooh… Ahhhhhh….! Pretty cool, huh? Instead of the tiny little iPhone window, you now get a 100% native iPad experience that takes full advantage of the big screen size of the iPad or the not-quite-as-big-but-still-pretty-big screen size of the iPad mini.
Here are just some of the things you’ll love about TeamSnap for iPad:
- Split-pane navigation. See your roster in the left pane and details in the right pane. It’s really fast for cruising through lists of people and games.
- Fancy new data entry screens that pop to the front and then get out of your way.
- A new overview screen that gives you a bird’s eye view of your upcoming schedule as soon as you fire up the app. Assuming you have a bird that can read.
- Rotation? Awww yeah! Portrait or landscape, we’ve got you covered.
- And of course much, much more information visible on every screen. ‘Cause it’s an iPad!
But we didn’t stop there. Version 2.1 also includes tons of updates for both iPad and iPhone, such as:
- Ability to choose “All Players” or “All Non-Players” when sending messages. As John Gruber would say, “Finally.”
- Slicker handling of Availability and new, easier-to-use availability checkboxes.
- A better experience for our hard-working league commissioner customers, including display of league custom fields.
- And of course the ubiquitous bug fixes and speedups to make TeamSnap mobile sing.
As we mentioned in last week’s blog post, this new version drops compatibility with iOS 4. You must be running iOS 5 or iOS6 in order to download and install this version. That’s over 99% of you, so you’re probably good. We also no longer support Commodore 64 or TRS-80.
We’re super excited about TeamSnap for iPad and we hope you love it. But we know there’s a ways to go before we’ve given you everything you need. So here’s a sneak peek at what’s coming up on mobile:
- Payments and Tracking. Yep, we know you need those on the go.
- Statistics. Duh.
- Better messaging options for leagues.
- And of course making sure that our Android users are on par with all the goodies on iOS.
Give TeamSnap mobile 2.1 a try on your iPad (or iPhone or iPod touch) and let us know what you think. As always, it’s free to you from the App Store.
