Hi guys,

Having now spent many hours and more than a few aussie dollarydoos on this - I am pleased to present to you - the Objective Secured Tabletop Scoring app for iOS!



You can follow the following link to find it on the iTunes store as well -

http://www.itunes.com/apps/objectivesecured

This is version 1 and a version for those of you who use android is coming!

Any questions you might have please ask away!

Thanks
Mike
aka Massaen

I love this idea

Just downloaded it, this should help with a lot of scribbling on paper.

Only thing I would add is maybe a turn counter. I will shamelessly post this all over my local club and meta groups

I second Taffy10's idea. I write a lot of battle reports for my games so advanced settings to allow the user to keep track of how many points were scored each turn would be great. As would some way of recording which tac objectives were drawn, though I appreciate that may be more complex.

Add those two things and I'd definitely be enticed! As it is at the moment it doesn't seem to do what I'd want it for, though for anyone just wanting to track totals it seems ideal, and a damn sight cheaper and smaller than the official tactical objectives app.

How about a multiplayer option? I often get into 4-way games.

Great work! Any chance of getting a button to reduce points as well? if someone miss-taps and needs to take a point back?

Thanks for your support guys! This is version 1 and I have big plans for updates in future but I was hoping for this sort of feedback to identify opportunities to make it better.

Thanks mate - a turn counter would be helpful for sure - I will add it to the list!

The tracking functionality is a work in progress - like you I love my data. I am also aiming to include a function for players to track their win loss, average turn lengths, average scores and so on

Thanks! We decided to test the app on iOS for a few reasons (firstly cause its what my family use!) but just talking to my local community, we need to get the android version done - there is demand for it!

another good idea mate! I will look at the option in future versions

This is probably my biggest 'must change' of version 1! I am still not quite sure how we missed it!

Anyone happy to spread the word would be great! The bigger picture of the app is one that is probably a year or 2 away but the more people who know about it, use it and support me makes it that much sooner! I genuinely appreciate the support and feedback guys!

I'll shamelessly plug it on my blog for you mate - it's not huge but I do get around 150 views per day.

Hi massaen

Had a friend use it from a different gaming club to me last night, loved it. He runs a small 20 man tourney every other month.

His feed back was "if it had a turn counter and save function (I hit end game accidentally and wiped my scores before marking them down) I would make it almost mandatory for ppl to be using this as it stopped any niggles about time and score tracking making my life as a TO a lot easier"

That's awesome feedback mate! I run more than a few events myself so its definitely made with that in mind! Which event out of interest?

I ask players to take screen shots of the final scores and send them to the facebook event page as a back up - or via SMS if need be.

The next batch of updates will have to include a selection for who has first turn, a turn counter and maybe an extra page showing your last games scores...

thanks again mate!

I have got all the updates priced up and sorted - just trying to prioritise the changes. The android one is WIP right now as it has to be recoded from scratch.
