It's a nice program for 3 bucks
Thanks to the developer for providing a handy joseki reference. If you ask me, having the rough equivalent of kogo's on the iPhone is plenty enough for me. Although I agree that a lot of new features would be useful, most of them hurt study. For example, having the computer punish a mistake is pointless. You should work out the variations as though you were always playing on the side currently to move. It helps develop one's 'mu shin' or emotional dispassion for the exaggerated security of a desired position, get me? Just memorize both sides, it's hard to think of a move by itself, you really want to know all the pairings for black then white. Anytime you have a willing go buddy or even one that doesn't play at all, you got a whole $@$ load of joseki to do. 3 bucks? I'll spend it here.
This program is absolutely NOT a "scam." the reviewer that made the claim clearly had no idea what to do with it. It's not a game, it's a reference app, and a great one at that. Very simple, just open it up and try out some moves... The app will tell you the next moves in the joseki sequence. Also available is the option to switch colors, so that you can see the best way to attack an already-enclosed corner if need be.
A nice little joseki dictionary
This is a nice little program, but it lacks a zoom function when you go to place a stone. Because of the small size of the grid and stones, this means that I often (because of fat fingers) misplace stones. The addition of the standard zoom function seems like a necessity.
