Magic: the Gathering - Life and Poison Counter
By Ned Hill
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This is an extremely simple life counter aimed towards Magic: The Gathering players. There are hundreds of these on the app store, but this one has innovation in the form of a double-sided layout. This way, in a standard 1v1 duel, both players have control over their own life tally. The layout is completely mirrored on both sides, and with a minimal amount of interaction available, this app will not interfere with your game time. Set this down on the table and get ready to play!
What's New in Version 1.12
-Put the status bar back due to popular demand
-Changed the poison slider to a skull-and-crossbones graphic to hopefully be more intuitive
-Added a dice roll of 4 d6's to the start of each new game (2 d6 per player)
Using this app the first few times was just fine, no complaints. But then when another friend joined us, I couldn't add another player to the counter. My only request is that you allow up to 4-6 counters on the screen. Other than that, nicely done.
It has no ads, it isn't overly confusing, and it looks good. The only feature that I would like to see is maybe support for multiplayer games; that is, three or more players. Still, can't complain when the prices are this good.
Just what is needed for a life counter.
Simplicity is king and he rules here effectively. Best one on the market. Having gone through most of them, I tired of wrestling with the "features" and once I hit this one I stopped looking.
