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.
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. :(
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.
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.
Developers = bastards. Cpu programmed to cheat. 100 percent certain. Not random dice. Although some lovers of backgammon swear by the XG app, the dice roles are definitely not fair or random. PC version might be if you pay 70 dollars. App XG is weighted in favour of the computer, which produces extrodinary doubles and dice when it needs to, in order to win. It gives loads of doubles to you when you,re losing to balance stats. Still a good training app gor beginners, bit useless for experienced backgammoners. hence 2 stars.
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
