Great App for PE classes This is a great app that saves time and minimizes arguments in my classroom. No more arguing what team you are on it is right there on the screen. I use this app to quickly divide my class of 50-60 students into groups or teams. The initial setup is quick and easy using the import feature. I highly recommend this app for all PE teachers, coaches, counsellors, or anyone needing to group large or small groups of people. It is easy to operate and the various abilities to sort by gender and/or skill level is nothing short of amazing.
A must for a busy teacher! I was introduced to this app by our gym teacher. It has been a life saver. In a science/ STEM classroom I constantly have to group kids. The set up time takes a little bit but the ease of creating groups, that are multi ability, is worth every minute. I email myself the list, project it for the kids to see and now set up time is reduced!
Classroom changing! This app has been one of my favorite apps this school year. I love that I can create groups and text or email them to myself or my co-teachers! It has allowed me to pick readers and keep track of who has answered and who has not! Truly enjoy this app! It is a must.

Team Shake is the premier iOS App for creating teams. Instead of a hat and scraps of paper, the user enters his friends' names in his iPhone and gives it a shake. The screen will then display a random set of color-coded teams. These teams can immediately be used for game play or shared via Facebook or email. The quick and easy selection of random (or balanced) teams eliminates fighting over who will be on which team. Innovative use of the iPhone shake gesture gives users the satisfying feeling of shaking a virtual hat without the trouble of carrying around an actual hat. Conventional buttons can also be used for those who would rather not shake their expensive hardware about.

The app is designed with ease of use and simplicity in mind. Names can easily be entered with the onscreen keyboard, chosen from the user's contacts, or imported from a file. The sharing functions (email, Facebook, Twitter, and more) document the members of each individual team as well as preserving the team number and color assigned by the app. For repeated use of Team Shake, lists of friends can be easily saved and loaded later. The current list is also automatically saved so that if you exit the app, or even reboot the device, changes will not be lost. For teachers and others with large lists of people, Team Shake supports the ability to import teams from text or csv files.
