Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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!
What's New in Version 1.1
Rewritten from the ground up! Now works in iOS 7.
Look for a bigger update coming soon with some cool new features.
iPad + Apple TV + ScoreKeeper = Instant Score Board
Searched for hours and finally found the perfect app! Need something for our youth group Family Game Night to act as a scoreboard for roughly 15 teams. Searched many scoreboard/score keeping apps but none (paid or free) had the option of automatically rearranging leaders after every round (or every time you update points). This one is what I was looking for. It never came up in my searches because of "scorekeeper" being one word... found it through a series of "related app" scrolling.
Lovely but big
I made the mistake of buying only a 16Gb iPad Air. So I’m constantly having to reap apps that are too big for the value they deliver (I’m looking at you Real Racing).
Unfortunately ScoreKeeper is on the cusp of being reaped. It’s a brilliant app, wonderful UX. But it’s written in Unity. So you have a huge engine in the app package making it far bigger than it should be.
Howabout a native re-write Matt?
The mechanics are so smooth and the visuals of the app are really appealing. The only thing that could make it more convenient would be to have the option to view the list of players vertically (portrait view) rather than just by turning the device on its side (landscape). Otherwise it's perfect!
