Customer Reviews

Covers up the solution

Wonderful program but it's biggest flaw is that as soon as you've solved the problem it covers up the board with the menu so you can no longer see the problem and it's solution. It would be great if it would not do this, especially as it's designed for learning,

Need iPad compatibility!

My major complaint about this app is that it is only for the iPhone. Most iPhone apps look like crap on the iPad when you use that "x2" button. Their goban and book apps are properly optimized for the iPad, why not this one. Thus it only gets 3 stars from me. Other reviewers have outlined what changes would make this a really great app, but the top of the list is make it universal please.

Ease of Study issues

Most of the quarrels I have with this app have been addressed in other reviews. The one that I haven't seen addressed I'll outline here:
I wish when I finished a workbook to simply go onto the next one and not have back out to the main list and reselect for the next workbook. It seems like such a small thing, but it disrupts the flow of my mind. When I am in the zone for solving problems, I want to stay there and not be distracted. I already bought all the problem sets and it is well worth the 20 odd dollars to have them all since the market for high level problem books in english is painfully small, but the app could use some tweaking to make it more study friendly. Oh, and feel free to keep adding new and harder problem sets.
