Portable BG Software

Does anyone know if good BG software exists for portable platforms, eg iPhones, PDAs, etc?

I have backgammon NJ for the iphone and it is pretty strong. It also allows you to email game histories for analysis and has a good tutor mode.

Re: Portable BG Software

Cool, thanks for the recommendation. Just been reading about it from the developer's website: http://www.njsoftware.com/ipbg.html.

For the hint/tutor mode, does it rank all possible moves / cube decisions and show equities, winning/gammon/bg probabilities etc by move, or only show you the best move? (When I'm practicing I prefer to find out immediately whether I made the right move, rather than in a later analysis.)

Re: Portable BG Software

Unfortunately, the software is fairly basic in the sense that it only shows the best checker play and cube action.
