Good little but powerful app I can try the problems sequentially or randomly, and when I stop it's waiting for me to continue there. I also like the way the colors and locations are switched ad random. I would like a tweek: when I'm trying to find the solution and I'm say black, after I put a stone the system adds the next white stone. Would it be possible to change this so that I have to put the white stone also at the right place and so on? This would make me think about the best moves for black and white! :)
Interface is bad How do I come back to main menu? Why does "back" button do absolutely nothing? I'm stuck inside a problem set and can't even go back to a problem if I already hit next.
On Android 6.0.1 w/Samsung Galaxy there is no longer a menu soft key and attempting to hold down the back key (which is now supposed to be how to invoke the menu) results in GoGrinder immediately exiting. I love this app and would like to be able to see this fixed. Update: The workaround is not great, but it works. If you enable Settings -> Personal -> Accessibility -> Dexterity and interaction -> Assistant menu it will force an annoying overlay soft menu that works when holding down back in the app to get to the menu. Maybe this has something to do with not honoring the press and hold delay on the hardware keys?
Awesome app, thank you for writing it. Just one thing, though. I noticed in the basic collection, there was a problem I found confusing. In prob121.sgf, after Black plays 1. b3, White plays 2. c3, and I fail the problem. But then it seems to me that Black can reply with 3. c4, placing the white stones at c3 in inescapable atari. The three remaining white stones are also screwed. How is that not a win for Black?
Great except for one thing The only problem I had is when I completed a problem without understanding why it was correct. The app automatically goes to the next problem with no option for going back. There is not even any time to realise which move was right or learn why.
Great app! Hold down the Android task-select button to access the menu.
