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.
Nearly the best score board app
I've used this score board a few times and it's great looking and easy to use, but it has one flaw, which is the inability to turn off the auto sorting.
So if you are playing a game with set order, the order can't be maintained throughout the game, as highest points goes to the top.
i.e. Think of the pool game, killer. People take shots in turn, but when someone loses a life the board rearranges and the shooting order is lost.
Not good for big score games
Impressive design but lacks a major UI features. For example you cannot insert a number to add up to the score. You have to manually click the button until the score goes to the desired number and therefore you also have to calculate the sum yourself. For example if the score is 34 and i want to add 54 to it, I have to calculate it myself and also manually raise the score to 88 by clicking or holding down for 54 clicks. If this issue is fixed the app will be perfect. Until then 1/5 rating is suitable.
Great little app
Playing the Christmas family games and keeping score on a bit of paper when I thought there must be an app. Worked really well and could leave on display for everyone to see.
