Online poker players have been able to take advanced notes for years but new Android App Poker Notes Live attempts to bring that functionality to live poker.
It’s common to see the occasional poker player jotting down notes using a piece of paper or even making quick audio notes using a tape recorder but Poker Notes Live streamlines the process with a graphical representation of your table.
Similar to online poker, you can click an opponent and write down notes about them. Those notes stay around for as long as you want them. You can also assign players names and chip counts.
Taking up just 2.4mb, Poker Notes Live also offers some self-tracking functionality including win-loss ratio per session, buy-in and tips given. You can then email your notes to your desktop computer.
We had a quick whirl with the app and liked how it was implemented but you definitely need some discipline to keep entering meticulous notes, which is how the Poker Notes Live app becomes really useful.
The mobile app, which also works on tablets, is offered in seven languages including English, Spanish, German, Russian, Italian, Dutch and French.
Poker Notes Live is available in the Android Play app store (an iOS version is in the works) and currently offers a 30-day free trial but after that it switches to $1 a month.
