These apps are an aid for the Housie / Tambola caller/conductor/Master to call out random number (from 1 to 90) in the real world game with a group of players playing on paper stationery tickets.
It does away with the traditional physical numbered coins or numbered balls, the rotator cage and the boards.
Tickets can be obtained from sites like http://myfreebingocards.com/ etc. (or search for Free housie tambola bingo tickets on Google or any search engine) and printing them on your computer printer.
In this Full version,
One free game has been provided in the app.
Subsequently, games have to be purchased by tapping on either of the Buy Games buttons and you can buy 10 games for (INR) Rs. 10/- or 50 games for (INR) Rs. 40/-
For in-app billing, Google Play provides a checkout interface for users to enter their payment method) and that interface comes up when you click on either of the Buy buttons.
Games Available to the player is shown on the left of these buttons. One game count gets consumed when numbers called crosses 50.
Before buying the games, you could check out the suitability of the app for your requirement by testing out the free game provided or by installing the free app Housie Tambola 45.
To make the game interesting, the callers like to precede the calling of chosen number with a tagline or nickname.
I have given a default set of nicknames or taglines within the app. So for each number, the New Number button has to be touched twice, once for the seeing and calling out the tagline and next for calling out and placing the number on the chart.
For customizing purpose, a file named mylines.txt containing EXACTLY 90 lines has to be placed/copied in the device memory
For the purpose of making your own mylines.txt, you can download a template from the following link:
and modify it to suit your preferences.
For numbers, where you cannot think of a suitable tagline, you could write '3 and 7' for '37' in your mylines.txt file.
This mylines.txt file has to be stored / copied to your device Internal Memory (sometimes called internal SD card) and not on external removable SD card.
In different devices the Internal Memory is referred differently, so you might have to experiment a bit to find the exact location.
When the app starts, it uses default taglines from within the app.
To use your own taglines from mylines.txt, you have to tap Read Mylines.txt button and you will get a popup message, saying, "Done reading 90 lines", if successful.
On error, pop up message will say file cannot be located.
This reading (importing) of mylines.txt can be done anytime during the game also.
The app works perfectly with android devices of all screen sizes: small, normal, large, tablets
The basis of placing the called out numbers on the chart is to match the placing of numbers used in tickets used by professional players
