    I've looked around, but haven't found any, and I would absolutely LOVE to be able to play on my iPhone.

    Here's hoping Goban or some other application that actually looks nice (Unlike Cgoban etc..) makes it to the iPhone soon!

    Anyone know some solutions to this?

    It looks like iShudan is in development.

    I'd love to have such a program too.

    Also there's Tetsuki, an SGF editor. It works pretty nicely but has no navigation (backwards & forwards) through the moves.

    The place to watch is probably Sensei's Library's Mobile Phone page.

    Yes, I've seen those too, I'd just really love an app that let me play live on igs or something similar.

    The news about the iPhone probably going to Japan is good though, once it gets there I bet we'll see more go-related stuff.

    Now available on Apps store is Stones, it's under the strategy section. . . downloading now.

    EDIT: Nice app but only for playing another person, not against the computer.

    Great, thanks for the tip. Downloaded it myself, and now I'll just have to heckle the developer until he adds play over IGS! :p

    New Tetsuki: IGS client for iPhone

    I have nearly finished a completely new version of Tetsuki, this time as a native app with the possibility to play on IGS.

    Visit for more information.

    PS: I'm looking for beta testers.

    igo on the iphone

    the smart-go guys were demo-ing their igo software for the iphone at the US congress in August 2008.

    and I know for sure, the Sente:Goban team is working on a iphone version as well.

    Go on the IPhone on the way

    I have been keeping in touch with the guys at ROBOTA.NL, as I knew they had done a Iphone app, but had not had authorisation from apple to upload the product.

    I had a look at their website today and apparently it has been forwarded to apple for upload to itunes for 3g users

    This is an opensource Gnu go engine, so it will play you. Everything i have seen so far is just a board, with no intelligence behind it.

    The best thing about this app, is that it is free.

    Went to the apple site to browse for it, as i am at work and do not have itunes, but could not find it. Will download it tonight with luck

    The name of the program is IGO
