Good fun

It is a bit annoying to be asked each time if I want to start a new or saved game when there is no saved game, and to have to answer yes in a pop up if I want to do a double jump. But it does loose gracefully.

Subpar program

I’ve been using the free app for years, and while it was annoying at times, it was a decent app for being one of the free options. I recently decided to splurge and pay the $2 for the upgraded version. What a fool I am. The add box still pops up and wants to take me to the upgrade option, which then takes me to the store and clearly shows I have already done so. There are no new features, nor does it run any smoother. Also, as other reviewers have stated, the Network play option is ridiculous. There is no time limit for moves, and when you do get matched with someone, half the time they take their turn, and then disappear. The computer play option works well enough, so just do yourself a favor and keep your $2 and continue on your merry way with the free version.

Good AI

Lots of personality...for a checkers game. After a few thousand rounds you'll begin to understand what's meant by that. Good company in deep nights.
Don't care for having to diddle with a dialogue when making a double, and newer apps do away with this. If implemented, highlighting the route through multiple jumps and allowing these to be completed with minimal finger movements/dialogues would simplify play.
This is a great, stable app for passing the time while giving your brain a light workout.
