Best chess app ever

First, the best noticeable feature i love is how fast the app load. I shut down my ipod, turn on, and i can immediately start playing; no freezing, bugs, nor slowness. Considering how powerful this chess app is, the speed is amazing.

At first, i was really annoyed by the credit system. But since i love chess so much, i bought it. And i was never disappointed at this incredible app. This app made me from loving chess to getting addicted. You can change how powerful the AI is, as well as the appearance and layout of the board. You can analyze your game and compare your moves to the 4 best moves the engine calculates. The details of the analysis are simply incredible, it tells you the book opening moves you should make, the points of a move, the mate in certain number of moves, and more than 5 move calculations ahead.

There are so many features to discuss. All i have to say is, this is the best app. And for only 0.99$, this beats all other chess apps out the water.

Awesome Chess App!

I love this app! It's great for playing a game to just pass the time, but there is so much more this app has to offer. You can make your opponent as powerful as you want it to be, and adjust the difficulty as your skill level increases. You will never outgrow this app. The trainer can be turned on and off throughout a game at the tap of a button. So when you get stuck, or want to see if your intended move is one that the powerful chess engine agrees with, it's that easy. If you make a mistake, you can go back a move, or as many as you like for that matter. You can play multiple lines out from a single game, no problem. I also use this app to walk myself through games I have played against live opponents and find better moves or see things I missed during the live play. The chessboard and pieces can be customized to your liking with numerous options. Never had any bug problems with this app. What more can I say?

Great Chess APP

This is my third review,

One of the great points of this application, if you go outside the lines in the opening, this chess program will quickly punish you, and therefore demonstrate why staying in the opening lines are so important..For example, you are are white and the chess program decides to play Sicilian defense, and you play out side the lines (Ever so slightly) you will pay for this...(The Rating was at 2000)...What resource in Chess, can you find dynamically why one should play along the lines!

This is my second review, this program is a fantastic trainer, and the range is dynamic, from very beginner to expert, make no mistake about it, few weeks with this program each day, will increase your level..Additionally there are games from history in the data base, it is neat to pull up a game from the 1800's and see how they played!

I have had amble chess computer programs, this one is the best so far.. I have played chess for 47 years, and International tournaments. This is a very good tool for learning, it will teach you quickly why the chess lines must be obeyed. And that is the key to chess, what is the penalty for not playing conventionally, and this trainer shows you very quickly why one must follow the standard and proven openings..

Yes, great trainer!
