Customer Reviews

Excellent -- worth the 20 bucks.

While I'm only a club level player (5k), I've begun taking the game more seriously. Since I play on KGS, I typically use cgoban3 to review my SGF games locally, make edits, etc. Since KGS doesn't have an iPhone app, I have been using my IGS/Pandanet account. I wanted a way to review these games on my phone, and this was the literally the only app available in AppStore that offered this functionality. I decided to take a chance and spend the $20. I'm not at all disappointed; clearly a lot of work went into this app, and it does everything I hoped as well as having some extras that are nice..... such as tsumego, annotated games, and an impressive library of pro games.

If you play go seriously -- or even casually, but with the hope of getting better -- this is an awesome study tool for your mobile device. The ONLY thing I wish it had is a score estimator. It guesses territory, but not score. Still, it's a great app, and in English rather than Japanese. Thanks guys.

Please add 60 games played by "Master".

First, thanks for doing this for Go fans. We are looking for games played by Master. Annotated games are appreciated.


If you love Go this app is a must have!
