damien While I don't play IGS very often, the thing that caught my attention the most was the sound of gameplay. After playing many games on programs like Cgoban 3 and glGo, which use an unattractive "PAK" for every move, Tetsuki was a delight. When you zoom in on the board, you hear the rustle of stones as you "grab" one from the bowl, and a pleasant "Tic" sound upon playing the stone. As if that wasn't enough, if you zoom in and change your mind, zooming back out will cause a small sound as you drop your stone back in the bowl to think.
Visually, the shine and shadows on the stones are exquisite as well.
I also wish that you could upload your personal SGF to the program. While it stores games you've played on the iPhone in your archives, if you want to review an old pro game or a similar SGF, you're out of luck. McXorge This is now possible with version 4.
