You can use the Bluetooth connected football to check your pass accuracy as you train or you can play with friends. If you choose to use the simulation option the app will tell you to snap the ball and it will count down to a rush so you feel the pressure to throw and connect to a friend, similar to a real game, even though you only have a few people to play with.
