Fix online play!

Great interface. Very good AI play.
Connectivity issues prohibit five star ratings.
Online play is unstable.
Please fix connection problems and problems staying connected.
Specifically, can't connect to friends sometimes, even though they are willing and able. Also, Online games sometime abort with no warning (says opponent forfeited on both ends).
Overall best backgammon game I've tried, but connection issues need to be fixed for online play.
Please consider improvements for online play. Fix that and get five stars easy!
Acey-Deucy mode would be great, too!

You ruined it

This was a fantastic app and I played it a dozen times a day. Today I woke up to find that the developer updated it. Now all my previous players and statistics are wiped away. Months of work for my Elo rating gone. The UI changes are atrocious. You are unable to see anything in bright sun and the gameplay movement is a downgrade at best. Oh, and the bugs. So many gameplay bugs that weren’t there in the previous version. You took something that was an 8/10 and made it a 3/10. The developer obviously didn’t use the app very often, otherwise they would have realized that they were killing the very best aspects of it with this update. Very sad day.

I was hoping with recent updates that this game would stop cheating, but alas, NO! Please fix this. I love Backgammon, but this is ridiculous!!
