And more variations for the basics and tesuji problems will be added in future versions.

Basics part covers essential go tactics including Atari, double Atari, connection, cut, ko, ladder, oiotoshi, squeeze, wedge, capturing race, and life and death.

A lot of ways to study problems

Problem Practice

Sort problems by total tried times, wrong times, and win rate or shuffle problems, then practice problems sequentially. Supports show hint or solution, try, bookmark system problem to user library. If the opponents have multiple variations, you can tap the alternate move mark to switch to that variation.

Problem Test

Take standard test(20 problems in 10 minutes) or custom test, in which you can customize the total problem number, test time. During problem test, the restart, try, show solution button are all disabled. The standard tests for the bundled problems are integrated with game center leaderboard. Test history is saved automatically. And you can review all the problems answered incorrectly in any test later.

Spaced Repetition Study

EasyGo includes a spaced repetition system (SRS) to help you study go problems more effectively. Basically, it works like this: you are shown a problem and you choose “Fail”, “Hard”, or “Easy” according to how well you know it. The system will then automatically present the problem again for review in the future. That is, EasyGo works like a flashcard application.

Game record browse/edit/replay

EasyGo is also a SGF editor, supporting most of commonly used SGF FF4 properties, and features a node tree view and variation table view. You can use EasyGo to record your own games or replay games, create your own problems, and switch to problem mode to test at anytime. Two finger tap to toggle between edit and replay mode. In replay mode, you can tap the left and right part of the board to go backward and forward.
