The application uses limb-tracking technology – which enables the new semi-automated offside system.
And it has enabled players to access information within minutes of the final whistle.
World Cup stars now have access to stats including distance covered and passing figures, as well as video clips.
High-profile players to take advantage have included Croatia schemer Luka Modric and Switzerland’s former Liverpool star Xherdan Shaqiri.
Shaqiri said: “To see how your performance was, you have pictures in there as well…
“So it was a very good idea by Fifa to introduce it.
“I really like it and it’s just something new that didn’t exist before.”
Former Arsenal boss and Fifa global development chief Arsene Wenger added: “The players get analysis of their performances and will get used to the way we analyse the game.
“The players are very intelligent and, usually, they adapt quickly.
“We will make the quality of their performances available.”
