How to coach a team with the Samsung GALAXY Note II

Adaptable for a whole host of sports, you can customise the Dartfish EasyTag app to suit your needs with on the fly calculations for a range of useful stats.

Using the GALAXY Note II S Pen you can quickly and easily set up the Dartfish EasyTag app with the parameters you wish to measure, saving the settings for next time and even creating multiple set ups depending on what activity you're monitoring.

Thanks to the 16GB of internal memory and microSD card slot you can store a large amount of data on the GALAXY Note II, which can then be easily transferred to a computer for further analysis if required.

You can do all the preparation humanly possible before game, but when it comes down to it anything can happen on the day.

Luckily if there are cameras in the stadium, and you have a friendly word with the technically boffins there, you could end up with a live stream of the game on GALAXY Note II.

The 5.5-inch, HD Super AMOLED display means picture quality will be crystal clear and using an app like EyeTV Netstream and the associated plug-in receiver as well as watching the game from the bench, you can also rewind and replay the game, if you need to see that crunching tackle or defensive mishap again.

It also allows coaches to review strategy during a game and keep tabs on individual player performances, while physios can benefit from re-watching the cause on an injury, allowing them to administer more accurate treatment. (Note: EyeTV Netstream is only available in selected territories).

Connectivity – Dropbox


When you've gathered all your data, statistics and video footage you'll want to share it with other staff members and the players so you can highlight certain aspects, and a great way to do this is via Dropbox.

The GALAXY Note II gives you quick and easy access to the Dropbox app with simple file sharing allowing you to send files to colleagues in matter of seconds without having to go anywhere near a computer.

Samsung also offers every customer a massive 50GB of free Dropbox cloud storage, giving you the perfect building block to start sharing on your Note II.

Coupled with the large screen on the Note II, you can easily view any media that is sent across, be it a spreadsheet or a video, meaning that you can review performances and tactics on the move – making the whole process far more efficient.

Connectivity – VNC Viewer


VNC, or Virtual Network Computing, is now possible with the Samsung GALAXY Note II thanks to its HD Super AMOLED display and powerful quad-core processor, meaning you don't need to be in the office to access your computer.

This means you can always have access to key files, even when on the training ground – great if you have backroom staff constantly updating spreadsheets with data being fed back to them from training sessions.


If you have access to GPS trackers, you can attach them to players to record parameters such as distance travelled and speed, which in turn can be transferred back to a computer and accessed via the VNC Viewer application (£6.99).

The S Pen is a key tool when using the VNC Viewer application on the GALAXY Note II as it provides the level of accuracy of a computer mouse, which lets you move around your desktop and various programs easily.

Note: Some of the apps recommended above may not be available in selected territories.
