Say goodbye to pencil and paper. hiScore is a new app from TouchInGo that makes the whole process of score keeping a whole lot easier. No more lost scoresheets and no more math – hiScore is a simple, yet flexible score keeping app for your iPhone. You can use it for cards, board games, ball games and sports – any game that involves recording scores.
hiScore allows you to keep track of games with a multitude of different scoring options and styles – you can play to a certain score, or a set number of rounds or even play to a low score or down to zero.
Setting up a game is dead easy – just enter in the name of your game, the ‘goal’ score and the number of players. An on-screen notification and music alerts you to when the ‘Goal’ score is reached by one of the players. You can also turn on options like counting turns, low score and countdown before you start. Once you’re ready, you simply hit Play to begin. You can change player names by tapping on the default Player 1, Player 2 etc in the game window.
hiScore also keeps track of your turns – a small green arrow indicates who’s turn is up next. Your games are also saved automatically, so it’s easy to just pick up where you left off. From the initial screen you can resume a previous game by tapping ‘Load Game’. The date and time of all your saved games is listed so it’s easy to jump straight back in.
The hiScore interface is straightforward and intuitive and there is also the option to customize the background – there are six solid colors and six textured backgrounds to choose from.
hiScore does what it intends to and does it well.
Bottom Line: An easy-to-use score keeping app for any occasion.
hiScore requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later and is compatible with both the iPhone and iPod Touch.
