“Surround - iOS client for OGS” would be my choice. For the sub-forum, I think either “Announcements” (same place with OGS-Notify) or “Go Resources” (same place with The Conquest of Go and Katrain) would be good option.
Currently I only plan for Start new games, Analyze Mode/Conditional Move, and Puzzles. What other features need to be implemented before you would consider it “Full OGS functionalily”? Literally replicating all features to the app would take years
Puzzles I personally wouldn’t need as I do them with Tsumego Pro on the iPhone.
And the others are nice already for a beginning
Heh, yeah, I imagine. But hey, updates and make it a reasonable price for the update, like, say, 3–5 € every time you add something?
If App Store (which will mean some trouble also) then make the updates something that could be purchased in-app as a “power-up” or something?
I’m quite sure a total price of ~15–20 € would be appropriate for such an app, but yeah, I guess it would probably mean a full-time job with no sure income, so… maybe spend the time on something more worthwile.
I have been reading several posts on the forum about this feature recently (for example); so when working on the design of this feature, I tried to solve some of the issues raised. You can see in the screenshots that:
It is deliberately very wordy, in order to make it clear what is going on.
At the bottom of the quick match screen, there is a list of custom games matching the quick match settings.
In the custom game screen, it is possible to send a challenge directly to another user.
Custom game options are grouped into several small parts, with “advanced” options separated into another screen.
This is a bit different from how it works on the website, but similar enough to not confuse people who use both the website and the app; and I think it is clearer for new users. However, that is just my personal take on it; so let me know what you think .
Hi, can I make a suggestion? I would be great that when you are about to play a move you need to click the place where you want to play your stone and then click a button to accept it, I am suggesting this with the intention to minimize misclicks (since we are playing on a touchscreen).
Oh Good luck for getting a new one. Those M1 beasts are allegedly awesome, but I for one will wait for the next prod. series, when they have a little more experience, when they (hopefully) have ironed out the bugs in Bug Sur. I’m even skipping Kakalina.
Hey I just tried the beta it seems to work pretty well. Just 2 observations. First it doesn’t make a sound when you place a stone it would be nice to have that feature, second I couldn’t find the analyze mode.
Hi, thanks for the feedbacks . I have not gotten to implementing those features yet.
The sound is just a matter of finding a good sound file I can use so I might just sneak it in some time soon.
Analyze mode is a different story though, it’s high priority but might take a while (probably several months), because I want a design different from the one on OGS website, and it’s quite complicated to make.
