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)

Customer Reviews

Nearly perfect...

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.

Simply perfect

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.
