This Canasta score card is based on the popular Hand and Foot score card. The score card can keep score for up to eight players and allows for partners in pairs.
The score card will automatically determine minimum melds after each hand for each player.
A wild card canasta entry option can be enabled on the settings tab for those who play with rules allowing wild card canastas.
For those who do not want to subtract the points left in the hand, a hand points entry can be enabled on the settings tab. The entry will always be negative.
The values for each of the scores can be set for multiple versions of the game on the settings tab.
Variations of Canasta rules are presented on the Rules tab. Internet access is required for accessing the rules web page.
It is now possible to print the scores directly to an Airprint supported printer on the new History tab. The scores can still be saved to the Notes app using the Copy All button in the History tab window. Open the Notes app and select paste.
The score card now allows data and settings files to be saved to computer via iTunes. The data file contains the history of the all the games which can be copied from the data file to a text file. CAUTION: DO NOT MODIFY EITHER THE SETTINGS OR DATA PLIST FILES MANUALLY. THE APPLICATION CAN CRASH IF THE FILES ARE MODIFIED.
If you have further options requests, recommendations, or you have found a bug, please feel free to send me an email. Thank you and enjoy the app.

Ratings and Reviews
Love the score card although I don't like how you can't see the score totals as you play the game so you're guessing who's ahead.

The app was updated in January of last year to fix the window scroll issue. I hope you continue to use the app and if you have any further feedback, please feel free to contact me directly.
Not useful, not adaptive
This app is a waste of money. The instruction on how to use it are difficult to follow. It is not easy to adapt to different scoring variations. It was a waste of my money. I wish it had a trial period.

If you are having problems configuring the app to support your version of the game, please send me an email and let me know what is lacking so I can update the app. It should be configurable according to most of the rules of Canasta. I will also be happy to help you configure the settings to suit how you play the game. If something is missing, I will look into how it can be fixed.
Very useful! Small learning curve which is good. The only thing i would like to see is a dealer tracker to keep track whom dealt the hand
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
