Othello/Reversi apps are a dime a dozen in the App Store. Why create another one? Basically, because you deserve better, and I can create one that doesn’t suck. One that is well designed, plays at your level, and teaches you how to improve your play while making the game fun.

SmartOthello was created by Anders Kierulf, an independent software developer living in Salt Lake City. As an expert Othello player and experienced iOS developer, he’s bringing a unique set of skills to the task:
Anders was a development lead working on PowerPoint at Microsoft’s Graphics Business Unit in Silicon Valley. He has more than 20 years of experience in computer Go, and has been working on SmartGo full-time since 1999.
Fun fact: Anders’ first Othello program played in a tournament in Santa Cruz in 1981, long before he first made it to the USA.
Website and app design by Scott Jensen.
