Not Cool !! The app goes on loading forever and never gets done with it. Installed and re-installed it a dozen times but haven't been fortunate enough yet to be able to see anything else about the interface apart from the start-up! Disappointing ! Really Disappointing !

Buggy Buggy on Galaxy Tab 2. Tap to select a piece, but it doesn't stay selected unless you long tap. (Maybe a feature that's annoying?) Also crashed my tablet on first startup. Also, can't quit using back button as opposed to home button. Interesting variants though.
