Thing Counter App for Android

In case you haven’t read one of my previous articles on a review of a powerful calculator app called ClevCalc Calculator, in which I mentioned about the importance of numbers and the effects if numbers wouldn’t be there for us. Speaking of numbers, they are an indispensable part of our lives. Not even a moment would pass without numbers in our daily life. With keeping numbers in mind, today I would like to review an app called Thing Counter.

Thing Counter, as the name itself suggests is a tool that provides you with the ability to count anything you would ever like to count. For example points, packages you would be preparing, laps, people and more.
