Good, but needs an update...
Let me first say that this is a great app and I use it all the time. I love the ability to set your own layout in the timer portion, the judges list and breakdown tab. Easily a five star app in the functionality category. My only complaint (and hence the four stars) is that the last update was in 2013, when iOS 6 was still the norm. Now we have iOS 10, with all of its great features. Frankly, The UI in this app is just getting clunky, and in general is not taking advantage of any new features in the four updates since the last app update. Overall, great app, which works perfect for debate, but is in need of an update soon.
Totally worth it
Just got back from a tournament. Really wanted to say this is totally worth it. Timer is awesome, works like a charm. Both me and the one of the judges were using it. Love the breaking tree, haven't broken yet, but I've never been able to figure it out my self, so incredible useful. Paradigm stuff doesn't help me because I'm a novice, but pretty comprehensive for varsity. Only thing that is iffy is victory briefs, but I probably wouldn't use it anyways so don't care. Overall totally worth it.
Excellent App - supports all types of debate
I love this app. It supports all debate formats. The only problem I've had is that it doesn't seem to be available for iPad.
