What's New in Version 1.0.5

Let’s kick off the new year by putting an end to most of the major bugs you’ve helped us track down! We’ve done some major overhauls of our games so most random crashes should be gone. Loading times should now feel like they belong in 2017 not 1997, or at least loading should time out if you’re still in your doomsday bunker with a bad reception.

Facebook login should work properly now. That means you can get back to climbing the leaderboards and collecting gold medals when you beat your Facebook friends.

Many of our lessons are only available for members, but now anyone can get a taste of all the great content within all lessons. If you’re not a member you can still unlock some lessons by progressing through the Train section of the app.

We keep releasing new lessons every now and then, and you might not even have noticed! From now on, when you open the Study section, newly added lessons will be marked. You will also be able to see how far you’ve gotten in lessons you’ve opened without completing.

Beach Bounty and Cabin Fever should be faster and smoother, especially on older devices. Level difficulties have been adjusted for several game levels.

Happy New Year!

Customer Reviews


You won't get better at chess using this app. Maybe it could be good at teaching someone how to play in a different/fun manner but that's it. It's just mini games using chess pieces! No tactics trainer, no lessons, no guess the move, nothing for actually improving your chess. Just mini games. This is worse than "play Magnus" which is just play against a computer. At least that was actually chess.

Since update, app crashes when I select "study"

Please fix soon, I am paying a subscription for the study section

New update bug

Every time I open the study part, the app keeps crashing..
Please fix.
