Welcome to the Gweek podcast, episode 32! Gweek is where the editors and friends of Boing Boing talk about comic books, science fiction and fantasy, video games, board games, tools, gadgets, apps, and other neat stuff. In this episode I am joined by Boing Boing’s technology and coding maestro, Dean Putney. Our guest host for this episode was podcaster and technology journalist Tom Merritt.
UPDATE: Anders Kierulf, the developer of SmartGo Kifu says:
For the iPhone, there's SmartGo Pro ($(removed)) as well as SmartGo ($(removed)), both of which also include the tutorial. (There's also SmartGo 9x9 for $(removed)) My plan is to make SmartGo universal, so that there will be an alternative to the $(removed) Kifu version on the iPad for people who are just starting with Go.
For learning about Go, there's the free universal SmartGo Books app. It currently includes 26 books about Go that can be bought with in-app purchase, and both "Go: A Complete Introduction to the Game" and the five-volume "Learning to Play Go" series will give you a great intro to the game, to complement the tutorial built into the other SmartGo apps. Unlike a printed book or PDF, you can replay the moves in the diagrams.
Here's what we talked about:
