    This app has it all. Tutorial how to play Go, various computer opponents, easy to use game recording, PATTERN SEARCH from big database for studying openings, tsumegos with ability to add own problem collections. Overall this is by far the best Go app.

    The abilities to open games "as problem" (for guess-the-next-move) or "as book" (for playing out on a real board) are absolutely brilliant. I won't use any other sgf viewer for reviewing pro games. And the game list with previews; also brilliant. I only wish I could open games as problem/book when I open them from a file viewer instead of relying solely on the in-app file browser to do that.

    The editor is great for browsing through sgf files. Going through variations works nicely .
