Better than all other backgammon apps but locks up FREQUENTLY, causing you to lose games, some of which you were going to win. Also, allows players to quit to avoid an inevitable backgammon. Also, sometimes allows players to avoid using both rolls on the dice when they can-avoiding exposing a blot (I haven't figured out how they do this one yet!).

Pretty good app. However it has some bugs. During several games the program would "freeze" it would not allow a move, then it would timeout and i would lose the game; at other times i would win the game and the system would indicate a loss. There are other times when the system will not allow a legetimate move, but will allow an alternate unwanted move. These glitches in the system are frustrating. Also, after I complete a move, timely, the program will stall then declare me "ran out of time" .

There are so many glitches and delays in this game it's ridiculous. Players can't even move because the game stalls and lose their coins all the time. This happens to me constantly. They definitely need to fix their Graphics or bandwidth or whatever the problem is as every other game I play online with a similar interface and graphics do not have these problems. I barely play anymore because of these issues.
