In SmartGo Kifu 2.2, the Annotated Games only show up if you language is set to English. Workaround: Switch language to English: Settings (top right) > Language > English. A fix has been submitted to Apple.
With iOS 6, SmartGo Kifu/Pro has a bug where the Back button doesn't work after switching from Book View back to Board View. Workaround: Swipe across the navigation bar to get back.
On iOS 5, if you're in portrait orientation when switching to book view (either Annotated Games, Program Help, or Go Tutorial), the content will be displayed in the popover instead of full screen. Workaround: Turn iPad to landscape view before switching to book view. (Fixed in SmartGo Kifu 2.0.1.)
Press and hold on the most recent move, then drag it. To go to a previously played move, press and hold on that stone, then choose 'Go to Move'.
Simply swipe across the game in the games list, then press the Delete button.
The computer will play if the player is named SmartGo. To record a game between two players, enter the names of the two players.
We have no concrete plans to port SmartGo to other devices like Android or Windows Phone. There is still much to add and improve in the iPad and iPhone versions.
SmartGo Kifu does not include that feature. However, a free app called Tetsuki by Kris Van Bael allows you to play on IGS.
Bad moves can happen due to a number of reasons. SmartGo likes to win, and it may play desperate moves to try to get back into the game, or conservative moves when it's ahead. The lack of processing power on the iPhone is also a challenge. We expect to improve playing strength over time.
