The TapRecorder is a software tool for recording data on mobile devices quickly and easily. It is a simplified spreadsheet - with added features - designed to record data with a single tap on the screen. The TapRecorder has two desktop companion tools. The TapRecorder Desktop Designer is a companion tool to design TapRecordings on desktop Windows computers. The Consolidator, an Excel-based spreadsheet which can read and consolidate TapRecordings, also runs on desktop Windows computers. TapRecordings are uploaded and downloaded to/from the desktop using iTunes File Sharing. Click here for links to download TapRecorder desktop tools and PracticeStats.

Should You Buy the TapRecorder or Volleyball Ace?
Of course we believe that you should buy both products, but if budget constraints force you to make a choice, here are some guidelines: Volleyball Ace is ideal for recording stats during volleyball matches because it "understands" how volleyball stats and scoring work. It keeps track of players in the game, the current score, charts serves and attacks and has many built-in consolidation features. The TapRecorder is much more open-ended, allowing you to record data for as many "players" as you want and as many kinds of stats as you want, but it does not keep track of the score, who is in the game in what rotation and it does not feature the many desktop reports available with Volleyball Ace.
In short, if you want to record stats for matches, we recommend Volleyball Ace. If you want to stat drills during practice, we recommend the TapRecorder with PracticeStats.
