It is a nice tool to play or just observe others playing. Annoying attributes: it sometimes dies, cannot be restarted easily (dies few times in a row when trying to start) and when finally starts your original settings including credentials ate gone. Big a biggy as stored games stay and credentials add kept by Google. When moving between WiFi access points it loses the connection. The most annoying tho: the only way to export games from local storage is to mail them and no way to import.

look yall need to fix the sgf email option, or make a website i can use OTP (on the phone) i give you three, but you deserve a 1 for "fixing something that wasnt broken" and make it break down. visuals, sound, player in many countries, great tournament set up(winners could get prizes), rules, ranking, fixing cheated games, and live pro matches. you have a good app, so fix it up!

Great app with a good interface. Invites need to be clear whether they have been rejected or not rather than disappearing. Please add score estimation to the android app. Sometimes I'm logged out for no reason when I open the app - when I am, neither my username/password have option to be saved and none of my game settings (e.g. confirm move) are saved.
