    Nice and polished go client for IGS. Minor quirks by "mostly-observer" type of player: The games sort order by rank starts from the low end. And a support for rooms like Eurochamps would be very nice.

    I was in the scoring phase of a game when I accidentally pressed the back button. When I returned to the game I couldn't mark dead stones. Because of that I lost around forty points and the game.

    The board is the cleanest on my phone. Panda tetsuki board and stones are too detailed for the phone display. Playing however is not so smooth.
