Go Playing Programs For The iPhone

For any beginners interested in a few quick games of Go on their iPhone, there’s a free program called Igowin tutor, that plays against you on a 9×9 board.  I would not wholly recommend it, but the app comes with an introduction to the game.

There’s a $2.99 version of the same app that will play you with a smaller handicap so that it’s more challenging, and a $4.99 version that runs the same engine (I think) and plays 19×19 games.

There’s at least one other go playing program for the iPhone, SmartGo, made by folks who’ve done other good Go software.

None of the software here comes with a serious recommendation, other than that it’s risk free to try a few free games.
