Really well done app!

With the kids at home during coronavirus we’ve taken to much more time on board games and decided to give Go a try. This app helped me come up to speed and level up skills pretty quickly so I could take my kids on!

I like it but it needs an update

I like watching Asian dramas and this game is a constant feature in both historical and present-day dramas. So I decided to research how it’s played. The tutorials are helpful, and I appreciate the ability to collect puzzles that I got wrong. I wish it would explain why a move is wrong because I don’t always understand the correct answer. But it is still very good considering it’s free. I’m only on level 1 and I lose 90% of the time. However, the last few times that I won against AI Bobby in points, the app said I lost to him on time. What’s up with that? Am I missing some timer rule or is AI Bobby a sore loser? I do like the app, but I hope the developers can fix this issue so I’m not losing my game play tickets unnecessarily.

Hi BigBlocka - Thanks for the review! Will send your suggestions to the team. To help us follow up on the AI Bobby issue, could you please send a record from one of the problematic games by email to To do this, visit the Study screen, then Games, and tap the "SGF" button. Thanks!

Too expensive!

Baduk/Go is a game that requires study, you can’t just play it casually. This looks promising, but having to pay to get keys to study makes it too expensive. You end up paying almost a dollar per key and you need one key per problem you don’t understand.

There are plenty of apps out there that give you many more problems for a fixed price. The pro version to unlock unlimited study is $10 per month. With $20 you can buy Smartgo Kifu and have acccess to 2,000+ problems and Joseki and Fuseki study tools and many other features

Promising app, but with shady p2p tactics.

Hi Ta0star - Thank for for taking time to write. Just want to inform players that we are working on an in-depth tutorial that will teach tsumego strategy without the need to buy any keys, and emphasize that everyone can try at least 15 problems every day from our large and growing library, completely for free.
