Dart Meister takes the hassle out of scoring darts and helps beginners learn to play! The innovative input system is a joy to use. Just tap in your throws on the Dart Keyboard and Dart Meister calculates the score for you. Tap a number to score a single. Tap and drag toward the center to score a double or triple. Beginners will appreciate that misses don't need to be entered :)
Dart Meister only allows valid throws to be entered. Not only does this help beginners learn the game (and yes, game rules are also provided), but it helps prevent errors. But if you do make a mistake, simply tap on a throw to remove it (much easier than the unwieldy undo system in other apps). This even works for past rounds in the history view! No other dart scorer can do this.

This section addresses comments and questions from the reviews:
COMMENT #1: The app does not have a "miss" button, making the statistics inaccurate.
REPLY: The statistics are indeed accurate. After each round, Dart Meister automatically assumes the correct number of misses based on how many throws were entered. For example, if two throws are entered, Dart Meister assumes 1 miss. It works this way to reduce the amount of input required.
COMMENT #2: The app is split into two screens. It should all be one screen.
REPLY: Dart Meister features a spacious, easy-to-read scoreboard and the best throw entry system. Attempting to combine all of this onto one screen would require unacceptable compromises. Feedback on the two screen system has been overwhelmingly positive and it only takes a swipe of the thumb to navigate between them.

This app does a great job scoring. It's simple to use. If you read some reviews you might be fooled but the users who don't understand it just aren't using it right. You don't need to enter misses because it does it for you with simple logic (2 darts entered must mean 1 missed), the person who says you can't score under 15 is wrong unless you're playing Shanghai which anything under 15 is a miss anyway, to delete a score you put in wrong you simply click on it so I didn't understand why that was hard for someone. There's only one thing I don't get and that is the little red light in the bottom right.

Does everything you would want a dart scoreboard to do. Graphics are great easy to navigate, takes into account humans scoring and the errors we make. Can't wait to bust this out with my buddies at the drinking hole. We never played 01 games because math and booze don't mix now i don't need to worry about that
This is probably the best free app for tracking dart scores. Of course I know this because I tried to find an alternative.
It's not that intuitive which really isn't a big deal to me at all. There are some tutorials and I was able to figure it out fairly quickly.
The real issue is that you have to navigate through many, many menus to track scores making it extremely cumbersome.
Additionally, as other reviewers have noted, you can't track misses and you can't track throws that did not double in/double out which makes the stats meaningless and until you figure that out its fairly frustrating trying to figure out how to track those throws.
Could easily be a five star app with some fixes.
