Table tennis, that recreation room staple of the '70s, has come a long way.

"I cannot count how often weather cancellations have occurred in the last month. There have always been problems with getting the word out to all players and parents quickly enough. Now, I just use the app and send an instant voice message to parents right from the road saving everyone time and frustration. No more chasing down lost players. The whole team relies on it now. "
"We were searching for a very reliable app to send messages to our players and found First Touch. It is super user friendly! The voice message function sets this app apart from others. If you want user friendly, reliable, and fun then you must go with First Touch."
"Parents seem to be busier every year I coach. Practice and game changes are a hassle for everyone especially when they happen on short notice. Now I can make a change or add a game to the calendar with just a tap and share it with all the players and parents instantly. Everyone gets the revisions as soon as I hit "save". Since using First Touch, communication has improved dramatically."
"I coach multiple teams so knowing what exactly the player attendance will be for each practice is important in planning the right sessions. It had gotten hard predicting attendance with all the juggling of emails, texts, voicemail and phone calls. Now all my attendance communication just runs through the app. I get an up-to-date report for each team telling me which players have rsvp'd. It even sends reminders to players who forgot to rsvp."
"Personally, I adore this app. It has saved me so much confusion from email threads and scattered contacts. The calendar is such a wonderful attribute. It's so easy to just enter an address and be able to follow it to where Siri gives directions—and the whole team is on the same page!"
"I use the video sharing feature more than expected. The players and parents were snapping photos and videos before but now they have a place to collect and share them officially. I can see them becoming an important team resource. I find myself reviewing the videos after a game and then attaching the right clips with personal messages. It's a huge help to be able to address a technique with a particular player using video."
"I am not technical but already I've learned how to send voice messages and training clips to my team regularly during the week. I like that I can communicate and encourage my players between practices. This app has enabled me to be more responsive to each player and parents like it."
"I like that all usage of the app is controlled by my own administrator (in my case it is the parent manager). Privacy is important. With young teams, we have to be sure of app security. Our players just chose their own log in and password. Only our coaches, parents, and players get access to the app or any of the content."
"We had been looking at developing our own app but the cost to do one of the appropriate quality was prohibitive. First Touch saved the day. We find that players like it and the parents really feel in the loop. It has given us everything we were looking for. We are getting it for an unbelievably low cost. We were up and running on it almost instantly. Thousands are already using it in our first month"
