I'm not particularly experienced in Shogi, and nor do I have the prowess of even remembering illegal moves (sorry peeps I've played) but I can say that there is definitely some work put forth by the devs of this specific app. There are a couple of minor bugs, in particular one where dialogue boxes and related material will not close at all. Only way to get them out of the way is to select an option such as "Challenge", but pressing the X will not close it.

It would be great, if it worked. Keeps crashing all the time. It has a useful features but whenever there's a little more people connected starts working really slow and crashes almost every time. It also has a lot of bugs (ex. It disconnects from account when leaving a match as viewer). Aside from that it's one of the two apps for playing shogi online, and one of the few to be on English.

Unusable on a device with 1GB ram and Android 6. It's very slow and laggy, takes a minute register a touch/click on something. Please test the app on older/slower devices too, Shogi is not a 3D game that requires a high end hardware. Other Shogi apps work just fine and 81Dojo's older versions (prior to version 2) aren't slow on this device.
