kklim: I use this program to help me organise sgf file into "book" like category, it is very user friendly. Furthermore, it keep providing a lot of weiqi mastery learning materials "free" - which is contribute by other product owner. If you no yet try, at least give it a try, it will changing your way of organise professional kifu, learning material, and your own games and note into the way you like.
GrandYan: Unfortunately, I can't seem to understand the virtues of this program. Aside from that, game viewing in the trial version is a perfectly annoying experience. A message pops up every few moves reminding us to register, even when the trial still lasts,
And regarding "comprehensive study tool", can anyone explain what this program actually does that it can be called that?
In my opinion, this is one of the worst Go softwares in existence, being non-user friendly, inefficient and humongous in size.
MarkMeng?: I do not agree GrandYan's opinion, especially the last statement. This software has a huge installation base in China. The English (37MB) version is much smaller than the latest Chinese version (98MB), which contains more professional match records, reference books, exercises and etc. But the basic English version has already quite a comprehensive "library". The software developer also maintains an active website which encourages people to enter in all kinds of Go materials and share with others. The developer uses this way to collect materials for his "library" in the software.
Of course like any other software, this software has a lots to be improved as well. Personally I hope the "score estimation" function can be better.
Kazoo1: I found it annoying as well, with the registration messages every 2 moves and 2 mouse clicks to clear. Spent more time dealing with that then checking out the software. I also was unable to access the game database (Wonder if you have to register to get that, since there is no documentation indicating that.) I concluded that it was not worth looking into further and deleted it from my system.
