"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction." -Proverbs 1:7
The app hasn't been updated since April 2015. Is it still being supported? And is the AI good enough so that one who has never played could learn it well?
I think it's still supported... IIRC I had an issue with the app and Big Daddy's Creations responded pretty quickly.
The app is how I learned the game, it's a really clean implementation with a good tutorial. I haven't tried any of the more difficult AIs but they seem to have personalities or favored strategies like the Carc app. I really recommend it, especially for $3.
