I'm looking for recommendations on a simple to use Android app that randomly designates a start player. Was hoping for something that doesn't require me to key in player names and have it randomly choose one.

In one of the "Game Night" YouTube videos they showed an app with a spinner they could flick which even made a sound. Didn't take note if it was iOS or not.

Thanks.

I like Select Who?

Might depend on your touch screen capabilities but I haven't run into an issue with player counts yet.

I think that app was "Chooser", but it is only currently available for Windows Phone. I am the author.

Oh neat! Any plans on porting it over to other platforms?

I use Spinner:

You can put in peoples names if you wish (and save them), go by the numbers or the traditional spin the bottle rule of whichever person it is mostly pointing to.

Since I have a Windows phone I'll be sure to check out Chooser Michael.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

I first saw this at my group last week. genius is the lack of input required. So quick. Apart from the time it took to decide who's phone to use to run the app. Not kidding...!
