This is a great app for learning and improving your game. I also recommend "Tsumego pro" (a tactics app) and "Pandanet go" (a great way to play against humans) once you understand the basics. This app will teach you the rules (the app follows all the rules... It doesnt cheat as stated by some reviewers) and it will teach you some basic tactics and strategy. Then you can practice and see how good you get at one of the most complex games ever.
