Ok, with one glaring error
I just got this app today, and so far it seems pretty good. There is one thing about it that grates on me however. They have a red starting each match. According to the rules of Checkers, black starts each match. This might not sound like much, but it makes one wonder how good the app really is if they can't even get the rules correct.
I'm still going to give it four stars because it's visually appealing, the gameplay seems to be fluid, and the price is right. But I'm holding my final decision until I can play it further to see how good the AI is.
Very pleased with this program - equally good for single player or two player games. No complaints at all.
Good product. I would give 5 stars except that I find it annoying that the screen is fixed and will not rotate to horizontal if I turn my iPad that way. Otherwise, it's a good app.
