Agora Go Free - Weiqi, Baduk


Play Go with your friends on your Android smartphone or tablet!

Go is a strategic board game for two players, also known as Igo (Japanese), Wéiqí (Chinese) and Baduk (Korean). Go is rich in strategy despite its simple rules.

Agora Go Free is designed for 2 players playing on the same device. It also allows to import files using the SGF format, a standard to store Go games and problems. SGF files can be imported from the web, emails or the local storage.

All games are automatically saved with thumbnails for easy browsing. Paused games can be resumed later on. Finished games can be played back for later review.

Agora Go Free is optimized to run on as many display sizes and resolutions as possible, with nice graphics on Android smartphones, MP3 players, tablets (up to 13-inch screens so far) as well as Android laptops. A large screen will offer the best experience, especially when playing on 19x19 boards.

Like the layout but it stops there Wish you could play with a friend with another phone, like wordfeud and the like. I was so excited to see you could play with a friend, but got disappointed finding out that that friend had to be there physically beside you as my friends that are interested in playing/learning it with me are several countries away...

Good, but Good, but the program seems to ignore the "do no rotate" setting on my nexus 7. It is quite annoying when I'm reviewing games on my bed. I assume this doesn't happen in all devices, as it should be fairly easy to fix.
