NFHS app

Over past two years I've had rules book app on my iphone 4. I recently upgraded to a 5 and poof, it disapperared. I went to purchased apps and it says no longer available. Called NFHS and they were vague on what happened and was told rules book is coming out on ebooks. Anyone have similar situation. Really miss it

I downloaded it a few weeks ago for my GS4 on google play site. It's quite handy, and keeps me from playing candy crush in the bathroom!

2013-14 is not available as an app. The NFHS has moved in the direction of eBooks. Look here:

Amazon.com: 2013-14 NFHS Basketball Rules Book eBook: NFHS, Theresia Wynns: Kindle Store

I cannot find the case book - perhaps it's not available yet.

Correct the one I paid for is the 2012-13 version, but still very useful.

I liked the app better than the eBook, although both have searching capabilities.

I have not used the app version but I like the e-book format simply for being on a number of interfaces and I can really look up whatever I want wherever I am.

The lack of casebook is disappointing but I have marked up the book with a electronic not of some relevant case plays.

I am totally in the dark in regard to ebooks, i.e. Kindle. As far as I know, kindle is something one uses to start a fire. If I purchased this ebook from Amazon, can I read it on my personal computer, since I don't have a Kindle, or any other type of ebook? Can items be cut, pasted, and copied, with the intention of posting citations here on the Forum?

Presently, I'm using a 2011-12 PDF rulebook, and casebook, to copy, and post , citations on the Forum. Eventually, rule changes are going to catch up to me, and I'll need a new rulebook, and casebook, source to copy from.

I can't go back to typing. Even with spell check, it's just not doable for me. I took a typing class, with Miss Dench, back in ninth grade, and that was a very, very, long time ago, way back in the mid-twentieth century. Despite all this time passing, it's funny how I can still hear her saying, "Sit up straight", like it was yesterday.

NFHS app no longer available as mentioned above. Bought the ebook version, while OK not as easy to navigate as app, which I felt was terrific.

Question,

Does the kindle book include the case book and/or the officials manual?

Kindle e book

You can read the e book on an android or iphone. You buy the e book from Amazon.com.
The case book and officials manual is not included nor is it available at this time.

Why buy an App...??

When all of these books (Rule Book, Case Book, Officials Manual, & Handbook) are available on the NFHS "Central Hub" on ArbiterSports.com..?? Unless some states do not have access to this website for some reason. Is this the case?

And it would cost more money for some of us to pay for that site then it would to buy the E-books. Not all states pay for their officials to be a member of the NF. My state is one of them. It is really not that big of a deal IMO the change.

Peace

I don't think it costs anything.

Using a website is not always possible. My iPod Touch is not always in an area with free WiFi. My iPhone does not always have access to 3G. With the app downloaded to those devices, I could look up the rule reference I wanted without requiring an active connection.

Are there still any states that DO NOT take their tests online? For example, TX officials go the Arbiter (ArbiterSports.com) under our regulating agency which is UIL. There we can access all Federation tests.

But I looked around under the NFHS "Central Hub" under a link titled "Testing". There I saw that 10 or 11 states are listed as using the NFHS Testing site. Here is the list: Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, D.C., Idaho, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, & Virginia.

I know we have some officials on this string from some of these states. Do you take your tests online..?? On Arbiter..?? Another website..?? Anyone still take their test on paper..?? (That's that white flat stuff with print on it.)
