Scorekeeper XL is a great app for keeping score when playing board games or party games with your friends.
How to use:
Top left button: add player.
Top right button: sort lowest-to-highest.
Bottom right button: toggle volume.
Bottom left button: reset scores to 0.
When editing a player, you can use the skull and crossbones to delete that player.
To increase a player's score, simply tap on the plus and minus buttons next to their score. If you hold the button it'll count up a lot quicker.
That's about it, have fun!
Scorekeeper now has 64-bit support, so it'll work great in iOS 11!
I'm also working on an even better version with some new features, so keep an eye out for it.
Ratings and Reviews
Best, simplest scorekeeping app
I bought this years ago. Couldn't tell you how long it was now. It's tracked hundred of board games, card games, suplexes by Brock Lesnar in a single match, the list goes on. I was sad to start getting the warnings that it wouldn't run in iOS 11.
Developer comes in after 4? 5? years of no updates (it legitimately DID NOT need updates, that's not a knock against it) and pushes a valid 64-bit application for iOS 11.
I can honestly say I've gotten the most use and distance out of this app more than any other third part app since I bought my first iPhone 3GS. Hats off to the dev, wish apps today were more like yours -- simple, unobtrusive, and FAST.
UPDATE FOR IPONE XS Users: in landscape mode, have the top of the phone to your right. If you hold it the other way, the “home button” swipe bar renders at the top of the screen and you effectively can’t use it, try to swipe down on it pulls Notification Center down.
This is still one of the best apps I’ve ever found on the store. It’s intuitive, useful, fun, just a joy to use. Come out with an updated version and take my money again.
Tracking monster HP in D&D
Are use this app for all my nerd related stuff. Including keeping score for boardgames, Magic the Gathering and hit points for all my Dungeons and Dragons monsters. It's super useful how each one can be color-coded.
I just wish I could add numbers to the titles of the different teams. For example James #1 and James #2.
I also wish it wouldn't automatically sort the teams according to score. It would be nice if they just stayed still.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
