- Personalize and share your scoresheets:

+ Email or print(*) scoresheets directly from your device.
+ When scoring Rubber or Chicago on an iPad, there is a “Large font” user preference to help others at the table better see the scoresheet too.

- Sum scores across scoresheets to track players over a period of time (currently for Rubber Bridge and Chicago Bridge only). The report includes a grand total by player as well as subtotals by the dates of the scoresheets (i.e. subtotals for all the scoresheets played on a single date). The report can be emailed or printed (*) directly from your device.

- Includes a reference copy of the standard rules for scoring contract bridge (based on the 2004 International Laws of Contract Bridge).

- Standalone scoring calculator (on the ‘backside’ of the scoring rules). Use it to score a hand or simply to better understand the nuances of contract bridge scoring.

(*) Printing directly from the device requires iOS 4.2 or later and an available AirPrint compatible printer. eMailing requires that your device has been configured to send emails. eMailing works best on devices running iOS versions 4.2 or later. You can email documents using earlier versions, but due to known bugs in Apple’s PDF generation features, the resulting documents look slightly different than on the device, and do not support foreign languages as well.
