Baduk Cap lets you capture positions on your wooden Go board and transfer them easily to the SGF file format with its built-in image recognition.
Determine the winner and exact score of your game with the scoring function (this feature is an in-app purchase).
As Baduk Cap supports corners of arbitrary size and recognizes them automatically, you can capture problems from books and export them to apps like EasyGo, that offer the spaced repetition system as a study tool.
Live capture of your game, while it is being played, is also possible with automatic move recognition and automatic photos (this feature is an in-app purchase). You can fully focus on the game, instead of spending time and concentration with recording it manually.
Include game information like player names, ranks, captured stones, … and copy the SGF file to the clipboard, send it as an email, save it to Dropbox or export it to apps like EasyGo or SmartGo Kifu.
Baduk Cap supports board sizes 9 x 9, 13 x 13 and 19 x 19.

Ratings and Reviews

Essential companion to EasyGo


This app is like magic for anyone faced with capturing go problems as SGF files. A quick snapshot of a printed go problem is accurately interpreted, even in poor light, and can then be imported directly into EasyGo, where you simply enter the correct move(s) and make it part of your mobile go problem collection.

This app is fantastic!

Using this for the Go games I play against my friends, especially as a beginner, has been invaluable in determining who's ahead and how to properly score the game. Anyone who ever wants any clarification on their games needs this app - it's powerful, accurate, and works beautifully.

Just what I was looking for. Works like a charm! Totally worth spending the money, including the $1 in app purchase for the scoring. IMHO the price should be included into the total rather than having it extra. I'm happy though!
