60,144 Pro Games
by Anders Kierulf
SmartGo Kifu 2.1 will include more than 60,000 professional games. After starting with ‘only’ 6,000 games in 2008, I’ve kept adding games whenever I could do so without slowing down the app. After continual improvements in both hardware and software (including compiler technology), performance is now at the point where I can include the full collection.
Joseki and fuseki matching is done based on all those games, and all 60k games are included directly in the app (no need for an online connection).
