Re: Backgammon for mobile devices - iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry

I think, strongest on android is actually nj backgammon. After the match or moneygame u can send it per email to your pc and run the xg analyse. I played many matches and it had in average a 1,8 PR

Re: Backgammon for mobile devices - iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry

I haven't read any mention of Advanced Backgammon which I have on my iPhone/iPad. I like to play Acey Deucey, and this is the only backgammon ap I have found with AD as an option.

I've never played the backgammon option, but suspect the opponent moves are as predictable and as single minded as in the Acey Deucey play. I play many AD games on a real board and have never encountered strings of doubles or 1-2 rolls for my opponent or me that issue forth from this ap. I win about 2/3rds of the games and would like a better challenge. Any suggestions?

Ken does not work for XG, so his remarks are not official. Upon its release, XG Mobile will immediately become a contender for the strongest/best backgammon app for the iPhone and iPad.

Here are some screen shots I swiped from a message at BgOnline. The first four are from an iPhone 4s. The last is from an iPad.

Re: Backgammon for mobile devices - iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry

Touch choice actually. Many apps at the market right now, but no one is perfect.

NJ backgammon - good single play, lacking online, generally good.
eXtreme gammon - lacks android version. Otherwise looks like a good app.
Backgammon Masters - strong online and graphics, but not so good single player.

I play them all actually.

Just got mail. Backgammon Masters HD is for free now: http://www.2kbgames.com/2012/12/spec...sters-hd-free/

The full HD version, for iPad. The new online lobby is good, too.

Re: Backgammon for mobile devices - iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry

For iOS I've been using Backgammon NJ to play against opponents online via Game Center and XG Mobile for playing against the computer, as the AI is much stronger.

I'm hoping that XG Mobile will be available via the Amazon App Store soon in order to install on a Kindle, as it is sometimes difficult to quickly set up positions on a smaller screen.

Re: Backgammon for mobile devices - iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry

other than backgammon ace, are there any cross platform (ios and android) apps that allow for online play with jacoby rule?

Re: Backgammon for mobile devices - iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry

There is a new option for any device, any OS (with internet access and at least a mobile phone sized screen. So on your Apple watch maybe not..). I posted an article about it but it looks like it was deleted? You'll have to ask Bill about this new site.
