Guru & Guru Pro will answer your "what-if" questions, like what if there was a specific roll in a specific position and what's the best possible move there.
In the default Player-Tutor mode, e.g. when you are playing against a master-strength AI, Backgammon Guru & Guru Pro will allow you to substitute a random roll with any specific roll of your choice. You will be able to take back and replay multiple moves as Backgammon Guru & Guru Pro support unlimited undo functionality.

What's New in Version 1.1
It's a greate little ap!
This new update now works excellent on my iPhone 4S
Was playing my first game. Reached for the doubling cube. I was surprised to be prompted to upgrade to pro version.. Backgammon is not backgammon without the doubling cube. I also really do not like being bullied into purchasing an upgrade. I will not buy the pro version.
What a waste
Backgammon is one of the oldest & best games around, but they've managed to corrupt it beyond belief.
DO NOT BOTHER WITH THE FREE VERSION!
I will not be upgrading!
