"Fully featured and worth the money. I can tell the programmer enjoyed writing this application and takes great pride in his work. If you play a CCG this is cheaper than most physical life counters and does much more." --cfeduke

"Honestly worth the money, nice interface and the landscape mode is great!! Makes the game much easier to keep a track of life during mtg duels :-)" -- CarbonScooby

"Overall the best app of it's kind! I'm sure it will get better over time." -- A bro ham

Watch out

Alright, I recently started playing magic and I knew I had to get an app for it. After looking around a bit, I came across this one. The stars are incredibly high and many suggested it. But when I saw the price, I thought "this had better be a freaking amazing app!" But it turns out it is most certainly not

The first problem: the price. This app is way too simple to be $5! Really! It is insanely priced! It might be worth $2 at most.

Second, the interface. Everyone gies on and on about how great it is, but it is horrible. The way to adjust the life is very cumbersome. Your finger gets in the way all the time.

Third: Lag. I could not believe an app like this has so much lag! Most of the time when you try to change the life value, it just doesn't work. It makes you look very foolish, expecially because you paid $5 for this.

Fourth: lack of customizing. Guess the limit of people you can have? Two. No more and no less. ALL counters need to be able to add more players.

Fifth: the rest. Horrible icon, boring interface, hard to control... all of it leads up to one thing. The FREE apps are better then this piece of junk. I would honestly rather spend $5 on an epic meal at a fast food resturaunt.

Here are my final suggestions. Either fix EVERY SINGLE THING I listed, and more, or make this app a dollar. Until then, spend your money elsewhere.


Best MTG app

I have tried lots of different life counter apps available in the app store (both paid, and free), and this one is by far the best. It is easy to use and great for being able to reference back to with the history when you have a dispute on life counts. My only complaint is that it does only support two players but for FNM or casual 1v1 there is nothing that compares. Easily worth the five dollars if you play on a regular basis.


I got this app a while ago and really liked it. It was very handy for keeping records of games I had played and going back to them to review. Unfortunately there has been no support for this app since 2010. It crashed on me one day and I couldn't get it to work after that. I don't know what happened to the developers but I wish they would support this app still. Other than that a really good app. I'll look for their other apps in the store.
