Annotate during, after, or both? I really like the feature that you can annotate your games DURING play..but I wanted to get an opinion if people think its better to annotate after the game instead...perhaps your head is a bit clearer and you can see more of what your opponent was up rather than what your next best move might be? (I know, I know, I should be doing BOTH those things during the game!) The possible downside is that annotating after the game, you might think "Why did I make that move?"...thoughts?

Why not both You know more after the game. But might forget something important if you don't note it down at the time. You could do it during then review and add your new notes when you look to see where it could improve. Personally I tend to annotate months later as it takes me a long time to decide if I liked a game, but I probably lose something unless it was during a very serous time and i had reams of subvariations and such.

Notes I do some notes during game - and after game, sometimes review them (to check/ evaluate my estimations)
