Prove it!

Fairly often on BGG you'll read laments that dice hate someone. "No, really, I never rolled higher than a 3 all night" or, "They kept rolling 6s." Which always sound like selective memory to me. Snooping around I found an app for Android which will roll your dice and keep the history of your results. You may find out that dice don't hate you after all. Or, if they do, at least you can prove it.

I'm sure someone knows of something similar for Apple.

Possibly, but given that dice are random and millions of people play games that involve rolling dice, it's not that unusual that some people are going to have strings of bad luck. It would be weirder if that never happened.

Then this gives them a way to substantiate their claims.

It's also possible that what you're saying doesn't disagree with what I said. Even if you needed to make it sound like it did.

see? 1d4 + 1d6 + 1d8 + 1d10 + 1d12 + 1d20 + 1d100 = (3) + (1) + (8) + (10) + (4) + (10) + (36) = 72
