Surround is a client to play Go online with other players on the website (Online Go Server - OGS). OGS is a very popular Go Server with a friendly community, and this app aims to provide the best OGS experience on iPhones and iPads.

- Play Go with other Go players on OGS, either live games or turn-based (correspondence) games.
- Observe other live games that are currently being played.
- Chat with other players.
- Get a glimpse of your correspondence games on your home screen with a widget.
- Receive notifications when it is your turn in correspondence games.
- Beautiful dark mode.

There are many more features on OGS website that I plan to implement into the app gradually, so I hope to have your support to make it happen faster. Let me know if there is any feature you specifically want to have first.

This app offers subscriptions for supporting the app's ongoing development. If you decide to participate in the subscriptions:

Custom matches not working

Bn0t@fr@id on

Cant submit a custom match at all. Used an ipad and iphone, both didn’t work

Love the app but started crashing

halpmeplssssssd on

App was great but now crashes every time I open it. Please assist

Easiest the cleanest and most beautiful app for the Online Go Server (OGS). It’s very responsive, the chat and analysis board work great, and the option to open to the game in the browser is great! If I had two wishes it would be for a dark mode, and the ability to save the SGF from the app, to save on SmartGo One.

Does what’s needed

Berbbl on

Gets the basics down. Main missing feature is push notifications.

Just what I wanted!

Great app, can’t believe I didn’t hear about it earlier.

Best Multiplayer Go Client

AlChandel on

This is hands down the best multiplayer app for the game of Go (/ Weiqi / Baduk). It isn’t perfect, but it is worlds ahead of GoQuest, Pandanet Go, and others. AND it’s open source, so you can see exactly what you’re getting into.

Very pretty app

chibzly on

Quite a nice little app!

Awesome Go client

Artursap on

I’ve been using this app for a few weeks. I originally found its Testflight link on OFS Forums. It functions perfectly well and I’ve started playing a lot of correspondence games because of it. I love the haptics, push updates, and simplicity of the UI. The dev did really nice work here. Would be cool to get board style preferences eventually!
