Customer Reviews

Great app

If you are serious about Go, want to learn, or want to teach others, this app is worth every penny. There are a few minor glitches, but overall it is amazing.
The learning experience, recorded games, puzzles, and tutorials make the price even more justifiable. In the end though, if the price scares you off, try the SmartGo Player version.
The two times I have had questions or issues, the developer emailed me within a day giving me a solution or an idea when the next patch would be released to fix an issue. Good support is well worth it.
