These apps are an aid for the Housie / Tambola caller/conductor to call out random number (from 1 to 90) in the real world game, with a group of players playing on paper stationery tickets (Free tickets can be obtained from sites like myfreebingocards.com and similar other sites, (search for Free housie tambola bingo tickets on Google or any search engine)) and printed on your computer printer.
This app does away with the traditional (physical) numbered coins or numbered balls, the rotator cage and the boards.
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 NewNumber button has to be tapped 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
For numbers, where you cannot think of a suitable tagline, you could write '3 and 7' for '37' in your mylines.txt file.
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.
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 the players.
