What about making it less tedious for games that are not scored in very small increments? I am thinking about games that can typically score in excess of 50-100 points per round. Nobody is going to want to hit that +1 button that many times, and if you have to click to edit the current value to score each time, it's going to defeat the whole purpose of using the app when the score keeper becomes too tired/drunk to think/add. Some way to click and enter a number to add it to the current total would be great.

And I too would like a feature that would reset all values within a group back to 0, so you can start again, without affecting current counts in a different group.

Add those 2 features and I'll also test it for a use case that would expand the target audience much wider than just gamers that need to keep scores.

yeah, i was thinking about this.. not sure the best way to handle it.. maybe an option to have additional buttons?  OR maybe better would be if you click on the actual score value, you get a popup dialog where you can quickly tap +5, +10, +25, +50, +100, RESET?  That would be easy to add.

I see an option to "Delete all visible items", but not one to reset the values on them to 0.

OR maybe better would be if you click on the actual score value, you get a popup dialog where you can quickly tap +5, +10, +25, +50, +100, RESET?  That would be easy to add.

I'd rather type a value to add to the score, rather than be locked into having to hit +25 and then +10, and then hit +1 three more times to add 38 to the current total. It shouldn't feel like I am trying to count out exact change for a bus. Remember that when playing a game the user will likely have to do this for every player in the list after ever round, not just 1 player, so it needs to be as quick and easy as possible.

How about tapping the current score to get a number pad pop-up to add a custom value, something similar to the phone dialer layout, with +/- buttons where the green phone button would normally be, to complete the entry? You could even put a reset option there, to clear and reset just the one score back to 0, without resetting all scores in the category list.

Something like this?

You should see higher up "Reset all visible items"

You're right -- don't know what i was thinking.  Click on the number to show a little calculator screen where you can add any amount to the score (or subtract or reset) makes a lot of sense.  i will add it.

I am not sure what you mean by "higher up" because this is what I see:

Implemented. Next release will be able to bring up a little calculator if you click on the item, where you can add/subtract arbitrary values, just as was suggested  :up:

Click on the actual score value and you get this:
Screenshot - 12_7_2016 , 1_22_20 AM_ver001.png

So from the calculator you can easily add arbitrary values to your score (e.g. type "+25" to add 25 points), or do more complicated modifications, or just hit "Clear" to reset to 0.

There is no widget available in the list of available widgets, as if it's not a feature in this version. (v1.19 installed from Google Play, Android 6.0 phone) I tried reinstalling it, but still no widget.

Just installed the latest on my Nexus 5 with Android 6.0.1, and placed a widget on my homescreen without a hitch :up:
And the same for Android 4.2 on my Samsung Tab 2.

I figured out what the problem was. This app does not like to be installed to a removable card. As soon as I moved it to the internal storage, the widget option came back.

This is what happens to my diet when my hubby offers to make me an omelet for breakfast. I never refuse one of his omelets.

Glad you solved it and I hope the calculator feature is useful.

I see you figured out how to set a custom title for the widget.

And I presume the "Reset all items" menu item is useful to you.

Widgets can't be used when the application is installed on non-internal storage.
That is a known 'feature'/issue of Android since 2.2 or maybe even from the get-go.

I had no idea, either. But it makes sense now, since it had been working fine, till yesterday. I had finally figured out why I didn't have the option to move apps to the removable card, fixed that and moved as many as I could there, a few days ago.

So, perhaps it's a bug, that I was allowed to move ScoreTracker, in the first place?

Yup,
