Great backgammon app. Definitely the best AI available on the store, and works great with the phone.

Hit aperture is too small
This would be a fun game, if it weren't for the fact that it's extremely difficult to hit anything on the screen. Buttons, pips, and marks are all difficult to get right, meaning that you spend an inordinate amount of time pressing on and around the screen icons trying to get them selected. Once selected, you have a similar problem placing the pips after the move. This single issue makes this game almost impossible to play, much less enjoy.

Good overall, needs to remove the bear from icon and add doubling cube, and be able to stop the 'auto' once its going

The automatic mode kicks in too much. It will make your moves when there is only one possible move but not when you have to pass. It makes no sense when the auto kicks in. Also I'm finding I have to press the buttons multiple times before my choices are recognized. Very frustrating .

Good overall, needs to remove the bear from icon and add doubling cube, and be able to stop the 'auto' once its going. Update: I played this extensively and I'm now able to tell outcome pretty well. If I'm winning toward end and I decide to take a risk, the computer will ALWAYS hit the right dice to take me out AND close any open positions, and I will not be able to get back in no matter if there are 3 open spots. Happens 95% of time. Was fun for 5 minutes until you discover the flaws, then you want your money back.

Simply doesn't work. Kaka.

Needs work. Seems like the dice are used to increase the difficulty. Computer is very predictable.
