Hey all! I just released a new app for Windows. It’s a basic tally counter that lets you keep count of up to three separate things. Track scores! Track stitches! Track frags!
This is my first experiment with C#, .NET, Visual Studio, and with doing anything for a Microsoft product. However, after finishing the Android project it was only a short hop over to C#, and I’d been meaning to poke around with it all anyhow.
I actually made this because I’m playing a certain game that has a competitive ladder, and I will need to do quite a bit of grinding if I want to make it to the top of said ladder. Enough grinding that I’ll actually need to keep count of how many games I’ve played each day.
It saves whatever you’re counting when you close it, so don’t worry about losing your progress.
I’m sure there’s a ton of tally counters out there but if you can build it yourself, why not?
It looks like this:
The code is open sourced over at the Scripts for Weirdos Github. You can download the program from there too – it’s the file called “ThingCounter.zip.” Just unzip it anywhere on your Windows-based computer and run “Thing Counter.exe” inside.
