Problem diagrams are interactive: Play the move you think is correct, and SmartGo Books will indicate whether you're right or wrong. Test it out in the sample of 501 Tesuji Problems, for instance.
Tired of figuring out cryptic move sequences embedded in the text? Tap an inline diagram in SmartGo Books to see those moves as a diagram.
SmartGo Books includes 9 books that are multi-lingual – another language as well as English: Michael Redmond’s Patterns of the Sanrensei includes Japanese, and Yuan Zhou’s How Not to Play Go includes Spanish. You can switch the text on-the-fly between the two languages, or choose to see both languages - ideal for brushing up on your language skills!
The Go Books app is available on multiple platforms, and so are your books. Any books you've bought are associated with your email address; just use your email to sign in to the Go Books app, and it will download your books.
Go Books is available for iPad, iPhone, and Macintosh; an Android version is in development.
