Definitely worth the price.
Just what I was looking for!
As a beginning Go player this app is exactly what I needed. The explanations and commentary for the various situations and tactics are done well and the English.
I only hope that more is added to this app in future updates as I was apple to read and play thru the entire app in just a few hours. Still, this app gives exactly what it promised and does it well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
