Looks pretty fun, plus you can't beat free

I think the best part is the dev plans to update with peer-to-peer support

I posted in the other thread, but I'll also mention here that I think this is a excellent checkers game, and it's free! The interface is, in my opinion, very sleek and polished (which is pretty important to me for some reason).

Thanks for the great feedback!

Thanks all!

Started working on peer to peer today at the WWDC labs... GameKit rules! Will need peer-to-peer beta testers soon.

Also I'm thinking about holding a "checkers board design competition" with the coolest board to be released in an upcoming update. Please send email to koduco at gmail.com if interested in participating!

What a great checker game! The two difficulty modes as well as two player make this great. I like zoom in when you tap on a piece, and board choices are a nice addition. Any plans to add sound?

You guys may want to check out this game as well: http://appshopper.com/games/gridlock-games

It has 12 games, including Checkers, with plenty of settings and options it seems.

Free as well.

I have an iPod 1G, thus I can't install it.
Apple made a terrible choice with that dropdown menu for selecting device compatibility. There's no difference from the 1G and 2G iPod except a speaker, a button, and processing speed.
Hope that gets changed soon. I downloaded it for now and I patiently wait.
