Pros and cons of Backgammon - Classic Dice Game app for iPhone and iPad

Backgammon - Classic Dice Game app good for

Ive tried quite a few backgammon apps; this one is very good until it goes wrong! Recently Ive had a lot of issues, but generally, this is a good app. In fact its, to date, my favourite.
Really not that bad, cheating seems minimised on the hardest setting, the doubling from the computer is fairly accurate although sometimes deluded giving a very flattering score! Gameplay is easy and intuitive, pleasant on the eye, fully recommend.
im just a starter in the game but love it already. thank you for this app!!!!
First backgammon download that rolls reasonably fair dice. Computer does make some dumb moves even on hard setting. 4 stars. After playing 70 HARD games, I think I have to revise my opinion. the computer wins 19 out of 20 first moves and definitely cheats when it decides to win a game - down to 3 stars now. Why can there not be a game that rolls fair dice????????
I use this app whenever Ive got time to kill. Rules are tight, game play is fast and TONS of different settings mean a perfect app for backgammon!
I love the UI and the way the game functions but please let me buy out of all the advertising.

Some bad moments

Defective AI, biased play, it isnt true random. Frustrating, customer service treat people like idiots. Gives itself good rolls in hard mode to simulate difficulty, plays like a moron in other modes.
Game play is ok, but latest versions have gone overboard on advertising. Moreover, the app now freezes regularly - can be several times in one game (possibly linked to above?). Recovery is good, but restart also means another serving of those ads!
Bad. Ads froze the game. And I was totally beating beidge when it happened!
Too predictable! Thats too bad that you can predict the rolls the program will make. Would be a perfect game if the rolls were random.
Cheat!! two stars. Its far too statisically unlikely that the computer will give itself exactly what it needs, on its first roll, whenever it decides that it is its "turn" to win. Its predictable that, for eg, when it has a man on the bar with only one space open to come in, itll roll just the right combo, on the 1st try, to not only get in, but also to jump you. It forces you into an unnaturally cautious playing style not conducive to real backgammon. So annoying that u claim the rolls r random!!
The game is not bad in itself. But when the software cheats, it takes all the fun out of it. And it does cheat...a lot. Computer wins the first move almost every time and if you happen to leave a guy alone, the computer will roll the dice to land on it often enough that its not even realistic anymore. Ok, some people are lucky, but this is ridiculous ! The ads are also a little bit harassing, could advertise differently. All in all, wont buy the app because of the cheating that ruins even the best interface.
