Hand and Foot Score Card
By Terry Hoffman
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This score card was originally optimized for the specific version of Hand and Foot card game that I play with my wife and friends. Now, the score card can be fully customized to suit many versions of the game. We normally play six handed games, so, the default is to have six players. The score card can keep score for up to eight players. A set of rules for game play is presented on the Rules tab, but, an internet search will also find rules for other variations of play.
This score card also allows for playing with 2, 3, or 4 partners. The main difference is that only one partner needs to lay down the minimum meld, only one set of books is played per team, and a team must have two red books and two black books to go out.
It is now possible to print the scores directly to an Airprint supported printer. 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.
Due to minimum iOS requirements for the iPad Pro, the score card now only supports iOS 8.0 and later.
If you have reviewed this app previously with a score lower than five due to a lack of options, please select the Settings tab and use the Rate Hand and Foot button to rate the app again after using this version which has major changes adding all the extra options. 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.

Love this app
I have been using this app for a while now - I had written to the developer for some help in using, got an immediate answer and even an update with a few tweeks. This is the best app ever for keeping score on hand and foot! I love that you can go back and look at the score history for older games, keeps us on our toes trying to outdo our best scores to date. I would highly recommend this to all, and have recommended it to my friends that play with me, even if we can only use one scorekeeper at a time!
Great score keeper
This score keeper has really come in handy for scoring our hand-and-foot games. It is especially useful because of the settings which allow you to set the score card up for your particular variation of the game. One such setting I would like to see is an option to display the difference in the scores. We always play men vs women and someone is always asking "how much are we ahead by"?
Also, a nice feature would be to select a game from the history (one that was not finished) and retrieve the game so we can finish it.
Hand &a Foot score App
Used for the first time tonight and all 4 people loved the ease of keeping score with this app. Now everyone wants to keep score. Agree it would be nice to be able to know the difference in the score between two teams. Great app that I would score a ten out of a possible ten.
