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.

I really love this game and got really excited to learn there was an app supported by the Japanese shogi society readily available to me. I've been a casual fan for many years and am trying to get better at proper game theory recently. The app can glitch and will sometimes disconnect you in the middle of a match, but that has become more and more rare with time, though can still hurt your in-game rating. Either way, I would highly recommend it to everyone.
