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.
I love it!
This is a great app. I'm very impressed by the interface design, it's super clean and easy to use one you get the hang of it. Everything, from keeping scores ordered as they change to sound cues when the last score entered went to first place, shows that the author really put some thought into it. Plus it's free and has no ads!
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?
