Very nice app A really beautifully realized app for studying and commenting sgf files. I really like how clean the UI is and how gorgeous the board and stones are. Initially I was unable to open some sgf files. This turned out to be because I had my tablet set to landscape mode. There seems to be some quirk in Android that makes it easy for apps written for portrait mode to fail to work properly or crash when they are used in landscape mode. It's a weird bug and I imagine the devs will fix it fairly soon. All you have to do to enjoy this wonderful app for now is to set your display to portrait mode and just go from there.
