Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good but...
I like the simplicity of it and the fact I can change the colors based on deck majority. I also like that there is a dice mechanism that allows you to decide who goes first. There is also a function which allows you to change the life default to 20, 30, or 40. My only real complaint is the fact that you can’t change the number of players, which is the main reason for only 3 stars (if I could I would rate it 3 1/2, but it does not allow me to do so). I normally play with/against 3+ players. There is another app that lets me do this, but I was unable to find it again in the App Store. If you could add the function to allow more players, I would consider this app the best Magic the Gathering Life Counter out there. But for now, I am still looking for another one.
I do realize that this app has every right to have ads on it, but it is quite annoying when you are trying to have a semi-professional match and ads are just casually on the screen. I am not marking my rating down for this, but I felt it worth to make a note of.
The best but not good enough
This is definitely the cleanest and preferred life coubter of choice. The customizable colors are awesome, and it's simple and intuitive. I really like how I can set the life counter to different numbers by default too. However, this takes a huge toll on your battery, so much so that I resort to pen and paper after one game. Also, you cannot set the number of players. As I play commander, I am usually playing with three or four players. In this instance this app falls short. I also cannot choose to represent only my life. This would be a welcome alternative, as my friends usually have their own way to represent their's anyway. Overall though this is the best there is!
It does what it needs to do and it does it well.
I'd been using this app for about three months before I decided to support the developer with the whopping $2. That's less than I would spend on a single pack for just about any card game, and I use it across multiple games. I don't even know why I hesitated.
It works very well, and it's so much easier to see and understand during a game than a d20 or tokens. I use it mostly for the two PlayFusion games and it even supports up to four players. Highly recommended.
