Only textbook teacher backgammon ap I know of A+++. PLEASE FIX FREEZE ISSUE and your back to 5 stars. Until then 2 stars. I literally play 5 rolls and then it freezes! Everytime! Really?! Use to be great, no issues, you updated it to break it! Old adage applies, it it ain't broke don't fix it. I uninstall daily, reinstall and hope it would be working but no cigar. :(
Very glitchy. Freezes or shuts down at least once in every game, and frequently more than once. Seems to freeze if you ignore its advice! Would be better if it gave a reason for the move it is suggesting you make, otherwise no point in the tutorial mode.
Play is stronger than humans. Gives good advice when playing on highest difficulty. People that say then dice are unfair are unfamiliar with probability. One complaint is that when you navigate away from the app and back to it, the background becomes all black and it is difficult to see where you are moving the pieces. This is on latest version of android as of 10/19/2017 Another complaint is that setting up a position and determining a computer analysis is hard.
I prefer to this app more than others however I feel it's not doing enough. If the app is able to identify which moves are errors and by what margin then why can't it show me on my phone? Why does this information have to stay a mystery unless I import it to the computer? Make it convenient. Overall experience on the phone is very average with no frills.
Occasionally crashes. No big deal as it always restarts where it left off. Very strong player. Can be demoralising unless you turn the strength down! Highly recommended.
Perfect when compared with the other mobile by games I have tried. (The "Update-glitch" is sometimes annoying, although thankfully just that as I have not had any game data loss. Most curious is that it is not yet repaired.)
- Added an easy way to set the computer strength on the new game screen.
- Show Pip count when showing hint no matter what the Pip count setting is.
- Added Threshold and option for Tutor/Training Mode (Options>>Game Options)
- Not starting in Airplane Mode
- Minor fixes.
