New App: Percentally

I excited to announce that Percentally for the iPhone & iPod Touch has been released! Eric Sailers of Speech Language Pathology Sharing developed the app with Jason Rinn. This is a simple, yet powerful app that allows you to take data. Here's the description from the iTunes Store:

Percentally is a tally counter that automatically converts tallies to percentages. It enables progress tracking in education, athletics, and other activities.

Percentally can track progress on educational goals. It is currently being used to measure special education goals including percentage accuracy of a student’s “s” sound, comprehension of questions, and the number of times a student interrupted. Percentally can also be used in extracurricular activities like sports. Measure the percentage of football passes completed, free throws made in basketball, or the number of putts in a golf round.

Percentally provides options for customizing and sharing. Create a cool appearance by customizing the colors for tally background and numbers. Tally clicks can be silent or can provide audio feedback. Data is easily shared via a clipboard, Google Spreadsheet, and email. The sharing options make data transfer an efficient process.


* Color-coded single and dual tallies
* Copy the data and paste in another app
* Create spreadsheets w/ Google Docs
* Share data in an email
* Add and edit folder and tally title
* Re-order and delete folders and tallies
* Organize tallies in folders
* Reset and undo tallies
* Configurable clicking sounds
* Text-based notes


Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch
Requires iPhone OS 3.1 or later

I've had the opportunity to test out Percentally, as a beta tester, for several weeks now and find it an incredibly useful app. It easily takes data with a tap of your finger. With the addition of copy & paste to other program or a Google Doc you have an easy way to track data. This app has become my go-to app for taking quick and dirty data on behaviors and academics! The app is $2.99 and worth every penny. Please check it out today!
