Any judges who use apps for non-sanctioned drafts or other kinds of small tournaments? If so, what app do you use?

I found a free Android app called, simply, “Swiss System,” that I used for a draft weekend some friends and I did. Seated the draft based on the Round 1 pairings and away we went.

Is there such an app for iPhone? Couldn't find any.

I've used TiebreakerJS to a level of success.

It is browser-based, so it works on Android and iOS.

I looked for the same thing recently. The iOS app store doesn't have anything like it, as far as I know. There is one app, but it was last updated in 2012 and doesn't work with recent iOS versions.

A web based solution like TiebreakerJS is probably the only option right now.

For Android, I could make an app version of TiebreakerJS, with persistent storage and a player database. If there is demand, of course.

That would be totally awesome. I'm using the web based solution for small private tournament and it works great.

I would love an Android version that did not require Internet access, as it would help conserve battery life.
