Remarkably useful and entertaining.

This may turn out to be my favorite of the several Chess King Apps that I picked up today (during an orgy of gratitude that such apps even exist!)

Started from the beginning. Found a position on the screen. Took a second to figure out how to conveniently rewind -- then play back through -- the game, back up to the first shown position (at which a blunder had occurred). Gazed at the screen and tried to figure out how to refute the blunder. Got some feedback on my choice. Realized that going through ALL the available positions should prove to be a wonderful supplement to the tactics practice I was already starting to get from the also terrific Chess Art app.

Unfortunately, my regular chess opponents will likely discover these wonderful apps someday, too.

Very helpful and informative

It would be a five star review, but sometimes when you get a tactic wrong it highlights some pieces in either red, yellow or green. No where does it explain what this means so when I see it I’m left asking “what is this supposed to mean?”
