Surround — iOS client for OGS

No. It’s been working fine these days ! Thanks !!

Hi @HongAnhKhoa. I love this app, thanks for developing it! You’ve really done a great job with it.

I have a few feature requests that I think would make it even better, so I thought I’d share.

  1. Back/forward buttons in Analyze mode, like OGS has on the website. This would make it quicker to see variations.

  2. Also in Analyze mode, it would be great if the variation view pane moved vertically to show the latest move in a variation when it’s placed. Currently it moves horizontally which works well, but if there are more than a few variations it can take some scrolling around to find the most recent move. This would make my first suggestion about the back/forward buttons less important as it would partially fill the same need to quickly navigate moves in variations.

  3. Add the new Personal chat option that OGS has to add personal notes to a game. This is different from the Malkovich option, which is already implemented.

  4. If there are multiple games where it’s the user’s turn, it would be nice to have them moved to the left of the game thumbnails so they’re all grouped together to avoid needing to scroll to find them.

These are all fairly minor things, but I think that they’d improve the app if you ever find some time to implement a few of them.

Thanks again for a fantastic app.

@HongAnhKhoa , I just found this thread and app. If not added already, I wonder if adding the name of go in the various East Asian languages (weiqi, baduk, igo, 圍棋, 围棋, 바둑, 囲碁) under the keywords and description fields for the app in App Store Connect would help people find the app more easily.

Thanks for making the app!


I’d like to second this

Just to come back to this one, there’s still no way out to the zen/full screen mode

I think I need to close the app to do it


Sorry, this should be fixed now in the latest version (1.3.11).

Thank you for the suggestion, I have already added those since the first version but I don’t think it helped much. Probably I would need to translate the whole app to East Asian languages to reach those markets.


Woo thanks! :slight_smile:

Works great :slight_smile: !

It’s just one of those things I tend to show people, this kind of minimal/zen mode. I think it appeals to a certain kind of player


Could you please consider implementing an option to hide the chat within the app?

Hi, are you using the app on iPad? On iPhone the chat is already hidden by default.

I can consider it, but may I know why you want to hide the chat on iPad? It is similar to OGS on the web and there is already a fullscreen/Zen option to hide everything.
