Didn’t use app life counters before because of battery life worries? This is no longer an issue, this new Windows 10 Universal version has been reengineered to give FIVE TIMES the battery life over previous Silverlight version. Experiments with Lumia 950XL phone show an average 5% an hour or around 20 hours use. Tablet or laptop owners - make your kitchen table or local store table a "feature match area". Xbox owners - do the same with your living room. Enjoy a large displayed scoreboard together with its own built in "Magic Judge" commentary. Give you and your friends that "Pro Player" feeling. Customise male or female Judge voices and quick or slow commentary to match your preference. Showcase your favourite art and bring out its beauty with the ability to load in any wallpaper. Invent your own personalised art or even use a picture from the camera. Keep your app looking fresh and up to date with the latest sets and card art ; download pictures from the integrated MTG4Life website or from anywhere on the web. Match your playmat to your phone, tablet or laptop ! :) Use customisation features and built-in graphics design techniques to integrate the scoreboard into your full bleed wallpaper. These include reskinning all the apps controls and scores to any magic colour, adding drop shadows to scores, image processing to darken the wallpaper to increase contrast and most unique of all - new resizable glass overlays for controls and scores with customisable blur ( based on DirectX gaming technology). For timed matches use a highly accurate timer with verbal timer announcements/warnings plus Time on the Round "Gong" alarm. Fully settable, continues working when receiving phone calls, lockscreening or switching between apps. Timed matches can also use the "Go To Turns" Timeout Management, triggered when timer runs out or available directly at any time. No need to remember which extra turn we are on, how many are left overall or how many turns you have to try and win. An animated and verbal feature walks you through it all. New "Recorded Games Stats" feature optionally records all game wins. Shows current win rate and opponent highlights eg "Most feared opponent", "Most popular opponents" etc. A Personal League Table is kept for all opponents showing your complete game record history for all games ever played against them with various filters. See your Win Rate go up as you improve! From the original Windows Phone version , the optional "SmartScore" feature watches you tap inputs and gives animated feedback of total life change before recording it in the score history. Just tap large buttons the same number of times as points of damage, the app does the rest, mental arithmetic not required! Optional +5/-5 buttons now also included. Includes current game score history with a dedicated display that flips into view in 3D showing timings and score differences. To show how much we take battery life seriously we now include our own battery app within the app itself. It displays and monitors current battery life with verbal warnings at 50%,25% and 10% battery remaining, together with several battery saving options to increase battery life if required. If you prefer your device in desktop rather than tablet mode, we full support Windowed mode for use on desktop with dynamic scaling to any size and customised magic colour window titles. MTG4Life scoreboard is ergonomically designed to be placed beside the battlefield between you and opponent, side-on like a "tennis" scoreboard in Magic Tournament Feature Matches (see included example images of app in use). Allowing you to share an agreed game state with your opponent and both to update it if you wish. Runs on all windows 10 devices. Universal in app upgrade purchase unlocks the upgrade on all devices - mobile, tablet, laptop, desktop and xbox. Buy once and use everywhere, forever.
