If you're referring to an Android or iOS app, no, it's PC only at this time.

I also asked you this question earlier. It would really be an awesome feature, if you could sit at you table and manage the most important things, like busting players out.

Of course that would require an API or even direct acces to the database.

I saw a floor manager on a big casino here in Denmark last week, who opened the management interface on the big screen every time someone busted out. They didn't have 2 screens attached to the PC, so all 250 players had to see that management screen every time a player busted out.

An app on all floor managers phones, would have helped here.

It can't be that hard. And I am sure you could earn a lot more money by offering that option. I am a professional programmer myself. Let me know if we should start a project to look into this.

Teamviewer, RealVNC or any other remote desktop app works fine.

I have to admit this seems kind of crazy to me.  I realize casinos are different around the world, but frankly the Tournament Director commercial licensing is absurdly inexpensive, as is the hardware to have multiple displays.  I cannot think of a single reason for any establishment to not have a multiple display PC.  It is certainly not a matter of cost.  Software and hardware cost is practically negligible at this point.  This alone does not negate the need for an app, but it certainly can no longer be used as a reason.  A single slot machine is probably 10 times the cost of the software and hardware required to run a poker tournament.

I'm not trying to discount this particular feature request.  I would honestly love to have an app that could control the tournament.  But it isn't a simple feature.  In fact, it is highly complicated.
