Best Go App You can play go smoothly and therfore pleasantly on this app. At first sight there seems not much, but eventually you will find this is much more than any other go apps. Everything is surely pretty in terms of functionality and aesthetics. As a go maniac I had been testing most of all go apps or sites. I found only this app has no deception. My conclusion is that this app is the best among go apps. This is the only paid app for my happiness in go.
Lots of high level players and great app! "play game" part is brilliantly done, I move a red rectangular box around, once the place I want put a stone is highlighted, click the "confirm" button, nice and easy. The red box is always slightly above where I touch the screen so it's never blocked by my finger tip, excellent thought! Way better than "zoom in zoom out" solution used by other Go apps. One issue: "open game" list doesn't update itself, end up having awkward gaps. Price is reasonable now, $20 was a bit too much.
It's great for 19x19 games, but for some strange reason lacks the ability to create 9x9 and 13x13. You can join them if there's a game of that size waiting to be joined. But you can't create a "seek" for anything but 19x19. Come on, devs! The functionality is there.... just let us create the "seek match" for different sizes.
Limited but grateful I don't believe this app has been updated since 2011. I would pay a lot more money just for the simple feature to create my own game seek ad. Grateful to use on android but limited. Almost not worth the money but better than being away from home with no KGS.
Bill Shubert asking big money for unworthy product, the design is ugly and confusing. You should have team to revamped design and bugs and don't take money for granted. Even better if you can open protocol so better programmer can develop better app and iOS compatibility. This is like taking candy from a child. Don't buy and stick to java desktop app.
Simple app. App works with a few flaws. Overall not great but not unusable. It's OK in that regard. The big hit for it is KGS itself. Larger community but very poorly managed. Either they make up community rules as they go or ban random users. Watching (literally just watching) a game not doing anything and got the boot (with BS reason). Can't get back on (said I'm blocked by IP and user name). No reply from admins. There are better run servers and clients out there. If it's mistaken identity that's even worse.
* Updated to match new server.
