Default SoccerCard SKS iPhone App Allows Users to Create Virtual Soccer Cards

SoccerCard SKS iPhone App Allows Users to Create Virtual Soccer Cards

By Nick Tylwalk

If you have an iPhone and $3 to spare, you too can create your own virtual soccer cards, complete with a photo that can be changed at will and statistics on the backs.

That ability comes courtesy of an iPhone app called SoccerCard SKS, created by Site K Studios. With a simple interface, the program allows virtual soccer cards to be created in just a few simple steps, perfect for youth leagues and school teams everywhere.

SoccerCard works with photos taken with the iPhone or those captured with another device and sent to the iPhone's Photo Library. The app inserts the photo into a template complete with a border (though at present time it can't be changed from the default green, yellow and white colors) that makes it look like an actual sports card.

Stats including minutes played, goals, assists and more can be placed on the flip side of the virtual card, which takes advantage of the iPhone's touchscreen by allowing users to scroll through four games of statistics at a time. The statistics can also be sent to others as an HTML-formatted email message.

A recent review on Macworld's website reported that Site K Studios is attempting to find partners to add a function to the app that would allow the virtual cards to be printed from the iPhone to become physical trading cards. Additionally, the SKS site promises versions of the app that support other sports are coming in the future. Personalized cards aren't a new idea - Upper Deck, Topps and other companies have been doing them for some time - but making them a truly do-it-yourself affair is a concept that could really catch on with parents and amateur athletes everywhere.

SoccerCard SKS works on both iPhone and iPod touch devices running iPhone software versions 3.0 or later. The app is available for $2.99 at the App Store, though the developer's site has a message stating that the price is for a limited time only.
