    I'm a big Jeopardy geek, and while I use a web-based app to figure out my score as I watch, I'd love to have an app for my phone.

    You may all point and laugh now. :cool: :p

    I am in the same boat as you. Years ago back in college I coded a simple Jeopardy calculator in C++ that allowed me to keep score at my PC. Fast forward ten years to the present to the day I found my old source code and recompiled it. Damn thing still worked! Then I had the brilliant idea of trying to port it to iPhone. Since I do not have a Mac, I bought OSX and tried to Hackintosh my PC so that I could get the iPhone SDK running. Didn't work out as planned. So in the end I could not code my simple little Jeoapardy app. :(

    It would be trivial to code. It's basically an adder/subtracter with a couple of display fields. Would be perfect for a phone app for the hard core Jeopardy watcher. Maybe someday I will buy a mac and code the damn thing, unless someone else out there does it first :) Maybe I will look into porting it for Android... Time to hit the intertubes for research...
