[Release] Pointedly 1.2

Just in time for the holidays, Pointedly 1.2 makes two key features much easier: entering scores and adding players to games.

Entering Scores

One of the most requested features was to add a simple calculator to make it simpler to add up your scores. This is particularly helpful for those games late at night when your brain doesn't want to do any more. Simply calculate the score as needed, or just enter it directly.

Adding Players

The previous version made it much easier to add players that you had already set up, but it was a little harder to get them in the first time. Now, you can just type the player's name. If they've already played a game, you'll see them show up and you can tap them to add them to the new game. Otherwise, just hit “Done” to create a new player. Quick and simple!

Additional Improvements

This version also added an Undo and Redo button right in the game screen to make it clearer and easier, addresses a number of bugs and makes minor performance improvements throughout the app.

[Release] Pointedly 1.1.1

  • With some great help, this version addresses the problem of data not coming over from the previous version. Sorry for the trouble!
  • Adds 3D Touch support for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus with launch shortcuts and game previews.
  • Simplifies navigation of your player list, which is especially nice when you have lots of players.
  • Addresses some sizing issues to better support the iPhone 4S and other small screens.
  • Other bug fixes and stability improvements.

[Release] Pointedly 1.1

Along with iOS 9 support, this version adds some major updates. The app has undergone as beautiful design overhaul to make it easier to use. You now have the ability to restart a game with the same people and settings without overwriting the previous game and a bank of players so that you don't have to add the same person over and over again. We also added a gorgeous results screen so you can share all your victories.

Thanks for all your support and ideas. We are thrilled to be able to keep the app ad-free. We hope this makes your family games even easier!
