What is Tally?

Tally is the quick, easy way to keep track of any sort of counts. Habit tracking, scorekeeping, attendance…anything else you keep up with. Tally’s gesture-based interface keeps your eyes free while counting.

Features include:

  • Easy gesture support. Tap to count up, swipe down to count down.
  • Unlimited tallies and tally sets.
  • Each tally can count up or down, and have a “step” increment – to count by twos, fives, tens.
  • Each tally can have an option “target” value, enabling progress tracking.
  • Visual, audio, and haptic feedback for counts.
  • Quick reset to starting values, for individual tallies or whole tally sets.
  • Extensive Shortcuts support.
  • Lock Screen and Home Screen widgets to keep tabs on your tallies.

Where do I get Tally?

Tally is available for iPhone and iPad, in the App Store (Mac version coming soon with the release on macOS 13):

Automating Tally

Automating Tally with Shortcuts

Tally offers a full suite of actions for Apple’s Shortcuts app on both iOS and macOS. Shortcuts can be used to increment, decrement, and reset tallies – but can also be used to create tallies and tally sets.

Install the below example to get started:

  • Tally - New Scoreboard: Example shortcut that prompts for the name of the game, and a list of players, then creates and opens a new ready-to-use tally set to score the game in Tally.

FAQ

Does Tally sync? (Short answer: No)

No. Tally is intended for simple, personal counting activities, and it does not offer sync across devices at this time.

How do I disable sound, haptics, or screen flash?

These settings are available in the Settings screen (gear icon below tally list) or in counting options on the counting screen (“…” button at top right).

Can I use Tally Pro on multiple platforms?

Tally Pro is a Universal purchase. If you purchase Tally Pro, you can “Restore Purchases” on all of your iPhones, iPads, and Mac devices to unlock features without any additional purchase. Tally Pro also supports Family Sharing, so all members of your family group can also share your Pro features!

I paid to unlock Tally some time ago. Do I still need Tally Pro?

The features offered by Tally Pro were not available in previous iterations of Tally. You are welcome to continue to use Tally without the Tally Pro subscription, and you will have access to all the feature you did previous to this upgrade. You may also use the “Restore Purchases” option if prompted and use your previous unlock purchase to unlock themes and alternate app icons without the need to enable a Tally Pro subscription.

The $1.99 USD per year Tally Pro subscription we hope will allow us to continue to update and support the app moving forward.
