TallyPad has been updated for iOS 5: Now a Universal App that supports AirPlay Mirroring to AppleTV in full HD.

Now a Universal App for the iPad and iPhone!

TallyPad is a feature-rich fully-customizable tally counter for the iPad and iPhone. Just tap or swipe your finger in one of the four designated boxes to add or subtract from the corresponding tally count. describes TallyPad as the “essential [counting app] for those dealing with multiple tallies and have power user needs.”

TallyPad is great for just about any counting project:

  • Scorekeeping (especially board games like Scrabble)
  • Surveys
  • Tracking calories or diet points
  • Counting money and loose change
  • School projects
  • Household Projects
  • Voting and Informal elections

New in version 3.1 (with iOS 5), AirPlay Mirroring on the iPad with AppleTV and AV Out to an externmal monitor. You can now view your tallies on a TV or external monitor in full HD.

Many people use TallyPad to keep score while playing board games, like Scrabble.  Because most board games have four players, version 2.0 now has a fourth counting area.  Also new in version 2.0, you can now assign a multiplier to each counting area. The multipliers are applied to each counting area independent of the values assigned to finger gestures. This is especially great for counting coins. For example, you can assign a value to each counting area (.01, .05, .10, and .25) representing pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters.  You can then assign independent values to the tapping and swiping gestures. TallyPad counts all your change and gives you a grand total at the bottom.


 What makes TallyPad different from all other counting applications is that you can assign customizable values to four different finger gestures. For example, you can set TallyPad to add 1 to the tally count for a single finger tap, 2 for a two finger tap, 5 for a vertical swipe and 10 for a horizontal swipe. You get to chose the values. Also, you are not limited to whole numbers: Just switch TallyPad to decimal or money mode to add decimal values.


Because TallyPad saves all your custom-named tallies, you can keep track of a virtually unlimited number of tallies and come back to them later. You can also assign names to the three tally categories in each tally project. Also, the TallyPad user interface was designed to allow you to add tallies by tapping and swiping without having to look down at the iPad. This way you can keep your eyes on what you are counting—not on the iPad.

TallyPad is now available on the App Store.
