"Make Magic Easier With This Counter"

Reviewed by / Feb 24, 2015

Use this app to count lives, poison, and more for up to eight players.


The Magic The Gathering Counter app keeps track of all the numbers for up to eight players at a time. Compatible with D6 through D20 dice, it also features customization player names and a countdown timer. For the novice player, the app also includes both the basic and complete rules.


This app counts everything including life, poison, and commander damage. It's easy to use and great for beginning and experienced players.


There's no paid version of this app, so it always has ads. While the backgrounds are customizable, there's not a lot of options

Some comments from the users:

"Makes games far easier and more enjoyable. Support for up to eight players, a coin flipper, dice roller, poison counter, and additional counters that I use for planeswalkers. This app thought of everything. And it's free. I recommend it if you play magic regularly."

"Works great. Use it every time I play. Love the counters."

"MAGNIFICENT! I love this app, and i wouldn't choose anything else. Simple and tracks what i need."

Permissions used and explanation:

INTERNET --> Used to Search Cards
ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE, READ_PHONE_STATE , GET_TASKS , SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW --> Needed by ad provider (Yes, they are a lot, I have complained about it, but they say they still need them, sorry)
VIBRATE --> To use the vibrate function
WAKE_LOCK --> To dim the screen in battery saver mode
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE --> To access the SD card to list your available pictures when using custom background , and... why write?? because I create a smaller picture based on yours to be used in the counter and don't waste memory every time I load it :)

    It works quite nice. The add that appears when trying to leave the app is a little annoying though. But it's free, so it's not a dealbreaker!

    The best companion while playing, and the ability to search cards, how could you go wrong?
