4/5 stars

Historic commentary, Graded problems, excellent program...

:
This is simply the best Go playing program for iPad. Let me explain why...
I've been playing Go for nearly 20 years. I've seen many computer versions of the game come and go. none were as well designed or as helpful as this one. Many Faces of Go, handtalk, etc all had their strengths but where Smartgo excels is in the database and technical problems. The graphics are presented cleanly. The click of stones placed on the board mimics what you would expect. It's playing strength adjusts well to how good or bad you are so it's challenging at what ever level you want to play at. Definitely master players won't be challenged by any computer program but since a vast majority of us are just interested in learning and playing Go, the level of difficulty is certainly good. If they would just add a Joeski tutor to match their graded problems and hint system it would be a 5 star product.
Pluses- excellent presentation and appearance. Good graded problems tutor. No crashes. Fantastic collection of historic games.
Minuses- No opening theory tutor.
Worth 20$ US ? Yes it is...

5/5 stars

excellent

:
only thing i can suggest are aesthetic upgrades: more elegant icon (see Tengen's), more elegant splash screen (or none at all), higher resolution wood board and pieces (again, see Tengen's). other than that, i love it. thank you.
