What is a tally count?

A tally count, or "tally", is a running total of things such as people, points, steps, prayers, or any other thing to be counted. A tally count is the calculation of that total.

How to tally?

A tally requires the (usually) one-by-one count of objects within a "tally set". To tally on paper or a chalk board, start by drawing a line for the first tally in the set. Next, for each additional thing you would like to tally, add another line next to the first. When there are 4 vertical lines, the next line is drawn diagonally through these 4. This diagonal line along with the 4 other tally marks represents a tally set of 5 tallied objects. The next tally mark starts a new set of 4 vertical lines followed by a fifth line drawn diagonally through them as before. Continue until you are done with counting.

What is an online counter?

A "Online Counter" is a type of tally counter that is available online. Like a mechanical tally counter, an online counter is a device used to keep a tally or a count. Usually available in a web browser, online counters don't require any downloads or installation and can be run from any device with a web browser. This means that online counters can be accessed from desktop or mobile devices.

Online counters function in a similar way as mechanical tally counters, but they use software, rather than mechanical action, to change the tally on the count display and reset or "zero out" the tally count. Online counters have an advantage over their mechanical counterparts in their ability to rapidly reset the tally to zero, or to adjust the starting tally to a particular point quickly. Some online tally counters also offer the ability to count by intervals, or to perform multiple counts at once.

Why use a tally counter app?
