Simple, clean, and effective.
You may choose your random back rank in several ways: by using the randomization button (the five-dotted die), manually rolling the wheel, or tapping the current position number and entering your own (anything less than 100 must begin with a zero: '054' rather than '54'). The position is then quickly shown at the top from white's perspective and may be double-tapped to change to black's perspective. No frills here and nothing missing, either. A+
