Description
Handy Dice is, as its name suggests, a dice rolling application. It tries to include any feature (suggestions most welcome!) that may be useful for playing board games, role-playing games, or any activity which requires dice.

It is currently available on the Android Play Store and iOS (iPad and iPhone) I am also working right now on Windows, Mac, and Linux versions. It will not matter on what platform you host your table, everyone will be able to join it!

PC version offers controller support.

Its main features are:
  • Most popular dice types are included (D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20), and a coin too.
  • Every time a die is rolled, its initial position and orientation are different, as also are the strength and spin applied to it.
  • Any of the dice already on the table can be re-rolled.
  • The program can add up all the dice on table, or sort them according to their value.
  • It is possible to roll the dice in two different ways:
    • One die at the time, by pressing their corresponding buttons.
    • All at the same time, after selecting the desired amount of each kind of die: 3D6, 1D10+1D4...
  • Dice combinations can be stored, and later loaded by just pressing a button.
  • Multiplayer mode: several devices may share a common table, over a local network or through Internet. Different options make the process of creating and searching for tables easy.

All that for dice?
OK, it might be useful in some circles.

Has a long way to go to be "eye" appealing but it has earned my vote
(Could theyre be like customization and/or a better gui?)

It would be cool if you ould change lighting (difrent shades/colors/ambiet settings) and also the table (wood, futuristic, plain color, etc) and finally if there was collision physics with the dice so they didn't just go through each other.

Thanks for the vote :)
Displaying the macro name sounds like a good idea and quite easy to implement, will seriously consider it.

Hmm. I can't seem to edit my comment, then I will amend it (and voted yes). (I should have looked a little harder at the information before posting).

It would also be nice if you had a macro that you could have it display something on the screen (such as the name of the macro).

For computer I currently use Fantasy Grounds, but I will also look into the mobile app and I could see a use for just a simple dice rolling program on PC.

BTW, thank you for the quick feed back.

Hi ShadowFall, thanks for feedback :), at the moment the interface is optimized for touch screens indeed, but I am looking to make it much friendly to pc of course.

Actually you can roll on 2 different ways, you can roll one die at the time (you click the D4 button and just rolls a 1D4, the D20 and rolls 1D20...), you can also use macros, you choose the dice amount of any type and rolls them all at once just with a double tap, or rigth click on pc, these macros can be saved on quick access buttons and name them as you wish.

As example, talking about D&D, if you have a scythe, you can create a button named "Scythe" or "Main weapon" or whatever so you can roll quickly 2D4, or in the rogue case, you can save your sneak attack and directly roll 1D6 + 1D4, changing dice amount fast and quite easily.

Regards :)

The user interface is not designed around PC. Also it would be nice to have saved dice to roll (i.e. for story teller system have 3 d10s - 10 d10s all ready to roll, or D20 have a d20 hot key and a D4, D6, D8, D10, D12 ready to go as well).

This has got to be the stupidest idea on here. I mean i guess it could be useful but, like...?
