I made an app that makes it really easy to track multiple scores/numbers just by tapping +1 or -1. No keyboard input required to update your numbers.

It's very suitable for Dominion. I use it to track my VP tokens, pirate ship mat, and/or the trade route tokens.

Here's a copy of the feature list from my posting in the app store.

* remembers your data and settings when it closes
* no need to use the keyboard to track scores. Just tap!
* sounds for adding/subtracting points to a score
* mute feature
* color and name each player quickly and easily, or simply give each tracker a color if you don’t want to use the keyboard
* also features a +5 button you can toggle on/off
* reset button can reset scores (prompts you)
* delete button can delete a tracker or all trackers (prompts you)
* screen slides over so you can track more numbers than a screen worth. tested up to 100



Available in apple app store via iTunes or your iOS device.

Is it just me, or does this seem like something that is just too easy to abuse?

-Keep track of total cards for Gardens
-Keep track of total actions for Vineyard
-Keep track of opponents' total cards/actions for Gardens/Vineyard
etc.

And yes, I am against using point counters on Isotropic.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.

I think that allowing this would be like a very intriguing varient that would be useful becuase it might help a person become better at keeping track of these things and paying better attention to them. I don't think I would want to use something like this all the time.

I never thought about counting those and would suggest against counting those. But for people who all agree to do that, my app would be pretty suitable for it.


I would only count what I suggested: VP Tokens, Pirate Ship Coins, and possibly trade route tokens or other public things.

One can "abuse" a pencil and paper in the same way.

Personally, I don't like point counting, and always disable it on isotropic, but I do somewhat see the point of people that they shouldn't be penalized for a bad memory.

In any case, that's not the app's fault.
