Hey all, I wrote a simple scoring app for Between Two Cities, to speed up the games I play. I put it up on the play store, you can get it here:

It seems to me that entering all cities in the application is way more time consuming than having each player pick a city and score it manually. In our experience, after 10+ plays, scoring is really quick and straightforward.

Your friends sound way more math competent than mine I tested this out in a 5 player game; I scored with the app while two others scored the cites manually. I finished slightly before them, and they were off a couple of points on 2 or 3 of the cities.

Also, I was thinking of adding a feature to take a picture of the board and it'd fill in the tiles for you... but that would take awhile to implement and the Taverns would be a problem

With your app you just get one number, so the token only moves on the scoreboard once. With everyone scoring their features one at a time (first everyone's shops, then everyone's offices, etc.), the tokens move on the scoreboard several times, so there's a little more drama in whether one city is going to catch another.
