Nacsport Tag&go
Nacsport Tag&go is an iPad app for easily registering actions for an
event you are watching or filming.
Data is collected by using a button template (with categories and
descriptors) created by the user on the iPad, or imported from the
following Nacsport software: Basic, Basic Plus, Scout Plus, Pro Plus and
Once the event has finished, the resulting database of information can
be exported for opening in any Nacsport software and also exported as
an XML file so it can be used in other timeline based video analysis
products (such as Gamebreaker © or SportsCode ©). Linking this
information with a video will easily show you all your registered actions
from the iPad.
Nacsport Tag&go can be downloaded for free on iTunes with the
following limitations:
You cannot import templates from other iPads or Nacsport software.
You cannot duplicate templates within the app.
Only the first 15 category registers in a database can be exported to
Nacsport software (or as an XML file).
To obtain full features of this app, it is compulsory to request for a
