Simple + functional = nearly perfect!
This counter is exactly what I wanted! It’s simple, easy to use, and HIGHLY customizable. I’ve tried quite a few and this is by far my favorite. I use the counter while at the microscope, for cell type counts, IHC scoring, and even tumor grading. The buttons automatically fill up as much screen space as possible (anything from one huge button to many small ones) and there are audible button clicks, so it’s easy for me to use without needing to look away from the ‘scope. I can color and name the counter buttons or groups however I’d like (not too many counters have an “anisokaryosis” label option, so that’s a nice feature). Then I can save a whole bunch of different customized purpose-specific counters! I like the option to count positive OR negative and zero a group with the +/-/0 switch (the - makes it very easy to correct mistakes/misclicks). The graphs of counts is a neat feature too.
3 things that’d make this a >5-star counter for me (ranked):
1) make it easier to zero out all buttons at once. I know I can go to the main menu, select counter, then edit, then “reset counts,” then save counter, but that’s a few too many steps for convenience. It’d be handy to have the +/-/0 switch also have a “0 all” option.
2) create an option to assign different sounds to each button. The list of available sounds doesn’t need to be expansive; 5 or 6 different ones would do the trick (like a few different pitches of clicks and clunks or something simple like that)
3) make an option for an audible alert (like a ding) when the number counted for one button/group and/or the total count has reached some number. Could add an edit option to “alert when group 1 count = #️⃣“ with a field to enter a number; and/or “alert when total count = #️⃣”.
As it is it’s a nice counter, but add those 3 features and I’d pay 💰 and leave as many ⭐️ ‘s as anyone could want for that!
Upgrade Works - My mistake forgot about restrictions on the iPad. Did the upgrade. The app is doing what I need. I would like to see some more detail in the timings statistics (like a graduated timeline) and a time count dump to numbers or a csv would be nice.
Use for knitting
Would like to be able to unclick when I make an unneeded extra click. Would also like to be able to reset only one segment instead of all. Otherwise this works great for any easy to use row counter.
NOW THAT I HAVE FINALLY FIGURED OUT HOW TO USE THIS THING, IT'S GREAT!!! And I found the minus button which allows me to subtract when I make a mistake knitting. This is much better than picking up a pencil after every row. And I figured out how to reset only one segment. Ah, well, these things need to come with instructions!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
