InitiativeBoard is a no-frills tracking aid for initiative and damage/hit points in d20 role playing game rounds like Pathfinder, Starfinder or D&D.
Get rid of pencil and paper, and start dragging tiles for players and NPCs on the grid. Starting new encounters is a matter of seconds.
Supports configurable conditions with automatic round countdowns.
Organize your games in up to five campaigns with ten players each.
First, tap on the Settings (gears) button in the lower left and enter player names for campaign 1 and a name for that campaign. When done, tap “Restart” on the main screen (2nd icon on the bottom row).
In the top right there is a button “1” for the first NPC. Tap on the “+” button to create more NPCs as needed.
To start an encounter, drag the player tiles from the top row to the positions for their initiative value.
Tap on “Start” at the bottom of the board. The tile with the highest initiative value will be marked as “active”, shown as a black border.
Continue tapping “Next” to move the active marker to the next player or NPC.
Fixes a bug where PC/NPC stats sometimes weren't editable in Settings.

The only feature it’s missing that I would love to see is the ability to track armor class on the cards as well.
I have been using this app for several years now for multiple campaigns. The auto-init roll for monsters (or PCs or both) have greatly sped up combat - it’s the single biggest benefit for me. I keep initiative hidden and re-roll Initiative EVERY round - really keeps the party on their toes, and this app handles that with just two touches.
There are a couple of small tweaks I’d make, but for me nothing is missing.
Excellent for D&D
I use for a D&D campaign and works quite well. Being able to name npc’s as well as player characters makes combat run more smoothly.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
