Hand and Foot Score Card
By Terry Hoffman
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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 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 the inability to test the score card using iOS prior to version 7.0, the score card now only supports IOS 7.0 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.
What's New in Version 2.2
This version has no added features. It is for a code fix only.
A coding error was found that could cause the app to have unexpected results when updating the scores. The code has been corrected.
Great app. Well worth the $$$
We've used this app for well over a year, playing with 1-3 people as well as 3 partners. It's customizable--this game has different rules, so that's important. It's also stable--no crashing. I wish there was a similar score card for another favorite "O Hell."
Our version is a bit different so I like the customization! Would love a feature to allow teams larger than 2 people and a place to enter negative points.
