Great app for running a weekly pub league , and the vocal reminders for blinds are perfect when we are spread across the pub on different tables. Always recommend it to other tournament directors who play in other pub leagues. The icing on the cake would be to include seating draw.

I love this app. Great for tracking your poker night. Highly customizable, from sounds, blind schedule, chip style, chip calculator. The developer is great at responding to feedback and making updates. I'm a numbers/ details guy, I love the league stats that are available to track the players rankings.

Love the flexibility and clarity. Very user friendly. Has some really nice features. Of course there's always room for improvement. Here are a few suggestions for future versions: Add an option to mirror screen to TV. Allow users to select a background image from their photo gallery. Add players names and pictures. (Might be a bit much to ask.)

It’s been a while, but since you wrote your review (thanks for the kind words) all your suggestions have been incorporated into the app (except for player images – but that’s coming). Hope you’re enjoying these features, and please keep the feedback coming.
