"Game Changer - This app is one of the most amazing tools I have used in my years of teaching marching band. So much you can do with it, no more carrying around paper charts trying to explain what a move should look like, students can watch, step-by-step, and see their coordinates the entire way. A total game changer for my band!" - SHS Drumline

"Simply the best drillbook app on the App Store - As a band director, Ive fallen victim to carrying around the "large binder of charts" that the profession demands. Not any more!! Upon seeing what this app can offer, its well worth the price, both for students and directors. Seeing every dot on the field in motion and, at any time, having the ability to click on a member and see their dot book coordinate is a massive timesaver and makes rehearsals infinitely more efficient." - NBRFWooo!

"Wonderful tool for drill - Beautiful, well polished, feature rich, prefect for quickly knowing what the drill should look like and the exact coordinates for any student." - Wooky

"This is the best app for reading drill - I seriously cant say enough about how well this app works. Uploading a show is simple, it updates easily, its excellent and the developer is very responsive to issues." - Roskoski

Latest reviews of Drillbook Next Reader app for iPhone and iPad

I bought this thinking it would be similar to their previous app, Drillbook. However, that wasnt the case. I couldnt find how to create a new show, and it seemed that you could only import shows created by directors from the $10 version. So, I went to their website and looked it up, and it displayed a menu with a "create a show" button. But, when I tried that, there wasnt one. Deleting and reinstalling didnt help, so I still dont know. Ill just go back to using the non-updated Drillbook.
Needs fixed it has to many glitches
Need to be fixed it freezes all the time!!
When our director updates our show with new sets, we need to make a note on each set and he takes a grade for it. Instead of having to retype all of our sets, it would be nice if they would just transfer over when you download the new sets.
Please add tempo adjustment, or show is at 172 and because it is at 120 the whole time it is hard to visualize.
