How good a poker player am I? All of us who play poker should be asking this question of ourselves all the time. Do I do better at Hold'em or Omaha? At the local card room or online? On Tuesdays or Saturdays? Morining or evenings? Am I making more $ playing cash games or tournaments?

If we knew the answers to questions like these, we would know where, what and when to play to maximize our profits, and where we need to put some extra focus on improving our game.  Without thorough record-keeping, it is very hard to answer these questions. With Poker Journal, it becomes easy.

Fully customizable for your poker play, you can configure  the games YOU play, the locations YOU play at, the stakes YOU play for and more. Once configured, simply enter each session that you play. You can even set up defaults for cash games and tournaments so entering your data is very quick,

Poker Journal lets you see your data as charts so you can see how well you are doing. You can filter your data based on any of the fields in the data (game, dates, locations, tournament types, day of week, etc ) so you can evaluate your play based on these different criteria.  If you would like more advanced analysis, you can export some or all of your data to your desktop to open in your favorite spreadsheet program.

- Track Cash Games & Tournaments

- Games Types (Poker, Blackjack, etc...)

Ratings and Reviews

very useful tracker

Very Handy application. Extremely Customisable to cater for the games you play and where you play them. It’s a bit pricy but totally worth it, if you really want to track your bank roll. Would love to see a couple of little tweaks to the application though.

a) I’d like the ability to remove the splash screen. I’m constantly flicking between this app, a pot odds program and music player.
b) It would be useful for the running timer to show seconds, if I’m flicking between programs I need to make sure I haven’t accidently paused it or turned it off, flashing red is ok, but a second timer would be handy
c) It would be useful for a alarm feature to be incorporated, if I’m out to play, I usually set myself a timeframe of when I want to go, it would be handy to have a alarm feature in the app, to alert me when my session should come to a close( and allow me to let my fellow players know that, incase I hit and run), and also a snooze / reset facility ( in case I’m on a rush!)

As it stands, it’s a great application and worth the purchase.


I guess it could be called "industry standard".

I have tried all other poker tracking apps, but I don't think there's an iOS alternative to Poker Journal for a professional player. It offers a truly complete solution for recording results and bankroll management. The user interface is extremely well designed. You can also define your own fields and even specify their behaviour. Fantastic.

Best App of its type

This is the third app of this type that I have tried and is by far the most polished. The currency, tournament types, stakes and locations can be customised easily and the summary information is clear and has the added option of filters to display specific data. The developer responded quickly when I had a question. It is pricey but it is the best on the market so far!
