For all iOS users out there: I have made a small iPhone app, that I hope is useful for correspondence players. The app notifies you when you have a game waiting and allows you to jump right to the game. In the app you can quickly see how much time you have left for your next move.
It utilizes iOS notifications and so you have full control of how and when you will be notified. For example you can silence the sounds of notifications and when in Do-not-Disturb mode, notifications will be unobtrusive. If you make your move, old notifications will purged so you won’t be swamped by a list of deprecated notifications.
The notifications will also show you the Go board, with the latest stone marked, so you can start thinking about your next move without even leaving the notification. Is the next move a tough one? Just leave the notification there for later when you have the time for your next stone.
You can find the app here.
It will be free to download throughout this weekend!
If you have any comments or thoughts about it, please let me know!
PS: You can also get a notification app for macOS!
