Coaster Counter App

Fri Apr 15, 2016 7:58 pm

Hello.
During the closed season I started developing an app called called Coaster Counter and as the name suggests it allows you to record your number of rides on an attraction at a theme park. Nothing exciting, there's other apps that do this but this one not only tells you how many times you've ridden a ride, it also tells you a list of statistics to go with it so you can see how many inversions you've done or the length you've covered etc.

At the minute Alton Towers is the only park to feature in this app but I will be adding more parks in the near future such as Thorpe, Chessington, Blackpool, etc.

Here's the Google play link for the app:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... tercounter

Any suggestions for improvements are welcome and I hope you enjoy the app.

Looks good. I finally won't have to add up the inversions manually :lol Well, I won't if there will be iOS support!
Ride count 2017: 422!
Ride count since the beginning of 2015: 933!
Cred count: 70!

Liam - http://www.coastercounter.com/#/ gives you fun statistics, how far you travelled, how many inversions, how high you've climbed, how far you've dropped and more. Anyway, back on topic!

Unfortunately, I believe to upload apps to the apple app store you to pay a annual fee. Plus I think you have to pay for the SDK. So at the minute an IOS release is looking unlikely. Sorry.

I tried this app a while ago and left a review, I loved how it looked but some things didn't work (I think I left a review on the Play Store). If these things were fixed, and more parks were added, I think it would be a great app for counting rides. :D

Thanks for the review. I fixed some of the bugs you mentioned in the review such as the Oblivon and Nemesis counters. As for the parks in the app, I'm currently in the process adding Thorpe Park but development might slow down for a while as I've got my GCSESs coming up. However, afterwards I should be able to get Thorpe done and move onto Chessington.

Awesome, can't wait until it's finished, I tried a few coaster counting apps but none really do what I prefer, with apps like Auto Ride Count, I remember having to add rides for every visit I'd had to Towers/wherever, which was difficult because I couldn't remember :lol I like how simple this app is, and how easily you can just add/take away rides.
