Hey guys, I’ve been really busy with my job so this will be a simple app review but an interesting one!
I mean, how can you not buy it after reading that!? The app is essentially a counter, like one of these hand clicker counters, only times
6 and not clicky. In fact, if it was clicky that’d be pretty awesome!
My biggest problem with Multi Counter is honestly finding a smart, convenient time to use it. I personally can’t find any good use for a counter, let alone 6 of them. The one pictured above is useful for things like ticket taking or checking people through a line. Something that typically businesses will use. I’m not saying the average person can’t find a use for it, just that those instances are few and far between. Not to mention that resorting to pull out your Vita and opening this app, which being a PS Mobile app will also close down all other games and movies (excluding YouTube) means you must have a good reason to use the counter.
As far as counting goes it works well enough I suppose. You can name each counter to keep track of them as well as set base values that the counter can’t go below. For instance the default base value is 0, but you could make it 5. I’m not sure where that could be useful but the option isn’t bad to have. The problem with it lays with the fact that you can’t make each counter have a different set base value. They all have to have the same. That requirement seems silly when you can individually name 6 counters. The biggest downside to this app however, is no saving of any kind. This means unless you don’t plan on playing any games on your Vita for a long while, then you can’t cumulatively count anything. The moment this app is closed everything on the counters reset back to 0 and unnamed. In all honesty, this removes almost any practical usability to the app since any counting has to be done in one sitting.
I give Multi Counter a 3 out of 10. I don’t give it any lower because the app isn’t technically broken, but it becomes useless due to the fact that closing it resets everything. Someone, somewhere on some far off place might find this app somewhat useful, but I honestly can’t imagine who or for what.
Multi Counter was developed by Retas and released on April 23rd, 2013. It costs $1.79 and has a 4.83 stars based on 6 ratings.
I do NOT recommend this app.
