Platinum Play Counter: Makes tracking youth football league minimum play counts a snap.

Youth football leagues implemented a Mandatory Play Rule (MPR) to ensure each player gets a fair chance at on-field play. Keeping track of play counts by traditional means can be a nightmare. Gone are the days of a clipboard and column after column of inefficient check boxes. Now simply toggle players on/off field and click the Snap Ball button after each play. Platinum Play Counter keeps track of each players total play counts, as well as warn you if there are too many or not enough players on field.

Enter your players on the Players tab, adding jersey number, last name, and an optional first name. Reorder your list of players any way you’d like. From the Games tab start a new game where your player list will be imported and you can toggle players on/off the field. The Snap Ball button will increment the play count for players listed on field, or you can optionally pause the game time during time-outs or half time for a more accurate stats. Uncheck inactive/injured players and optionally remove them from the in-game list of players. The slide-out menu allows you to undo the last play, remove inactive players, set a customizable team as 'on field', and end/save the current game.

• Add/Edit players (jersey number, last name, optional first name)

What’s New

Version 3.2

Full support for iOS Dark Mode.

I've never been one to use dark mode, so I never tested it myself. However, the other day a user emailed me and alerted me to the problem, black text on a black background was kinds hard to see. I agree. Thanks for the heads up Kyle.

I believe I caught all text/background changes needed to support dark mode, but if I didn't please email me and I'll fix it ASAP.

Good App

I don’t usually do reviews but I I’ll have to say this is a good app and is very useful. The developer is pretty much amazing at responding to issues. I would definitely recommended trying this app, the paid for features have no issues that I have noticed.

Very Useful App

I was designated the play counter for my son's football team at the start of this year's season. I immediately started looking for a better way to track play count other then pen and paper. This app was the obvious solution. After several games, I made a few suggestions to the creator that I thought would send the app over the top. I see that those have now been incorporated and I can't wait to use the app this weekend! Thanks for being so responsive to your user's requests!

Very useful and user friendly

For play counting in youth football there is no better way than this app!! It’s very easy to use and has come in handy more than once. We have had to turn in our stats on two occasions and this app creates a very straight forward easy to read spreadsheet. Would highly recommend
