Love the app and its a great time spender but why is the size bigger than it says. Market says almost 2 mb but app on sd says 6.61. Lots confusion

Not bad at all. it's AI is weak but then, all go-AIs are, due to the complexity. Very enjoyable for what it does.

The app doesn't save games correctly. While the final position can be seen, the move order is lost. For me, this renders an otherwise well-made app absolutely useless.

The computer has no sense of some of the situations found in real life games such as dual life. Its useless if it doesn't know all situations/ rules

Decent UI and opponent for 9x9 games. Less predictable the the AI in the "go free" app (which is a good thing).

Very good app. Easy to misplaced your stones, bit the double-tap feature makes that flaw easy to overlook. Highly recommend this.

Great app! It's the only Go/Baduk/Igo app I use. There IS a problem however... It seems there's a bug where, on very rare occasions, the AI will do something strange like place its stone where your last stone used to be! I've only noticed this twice so far, and pressing "Undo" then redoing my last turn fixed the problem. Possibly the only thing this app is missing is support for tsumego, joseki libraries, and reviewing saved games.

Best free go app. It does have an undo feature despite many saying it doesn't. Good ai. Shame the zoom isn't multouch an update to this would be great
