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.

App unable to match network games suddenly

The app keeps saying it is "unable to match right now". I cannot play. This had been going on for two weeks. I like playing checkers. It would be nice if I could block certain players from playing with me. Some just start a game and then never play again or they just end it after one or two moves. It is the same players.
Napoleonbambo just started 21 games with me then ended right away. This is a waste if my time. I want to block this one.
