I chose the template as instructed. I then put 30 pills on a tabletop. The app to 10 times the time it took me to count the and the came back with an answer of 224.

Developer Response

We have specialized Counting Templates for various counting scenarios.
To count pills, you need to use the “Pills ID:112” Counting Template.

If your count is not accurate, contact us so we can assess if we have or can easily create a Counting Template for your use-case.

Doesn't work well.

I laid out about 40 brass cartridges on a white background. All uniform items all evenly spaced and not touching. It counted two locations on the background where nothing was at. This counting app is blind. 40 items to count, it tags two blank spaces and gives me the total count of 2.

Developer Response

Thank you for your feedback.

We’re sorry you weren’t able to count your items properly. To assist in counting, our app uses Counting Templates, tailored for different objects.

Currently, we don’t have templates for brass cartridges.
If you send us a picture, or several pictures, of your items, we would be happy to determine if we have a template that would work for your situation – and if not, develop one for you – all at no charge.

We look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your counting needs.

I recently used a trail version of this app to count stacked logs in the woods and I found it very helpful and an excellent tool for the forest industry. To extended the free trial is $99.99/month/user, I find this a quite pricy for an app that I would use only occasionally. Is there a possibility of a lower cost option for users that may only use this in limited situations? This is an amazing tool that my business could use, but just can justify the cost.
