Very Nice Chess App
Notice: After the last update the app was freezing on my iPad 3rd gen.
As many reviews say, this app is excellent. You can learn if you are new to Chess, and you will be challenged on higher AI levels.
I would like to suggest some things for future update.
Please add some simple standard chess piece fonts like Alpha, "Modern", or "Book". Those fonts are public domain and many people like myself are used to seeing simple chess pieces. In addition to chess fonts, please add some more board colors. For example the app doesn't have the common board color that is light green/antique white, brown/white. It's just needed to play without distractions of the unusual styles of pieces that come with the app.
Also please add a mono color board that simply has lined squares of same color similar to those used in Chinese chess and Shogi.
Finally there is one feature that is important when playing against computer and getting a Hint. There should be an option to have computer think longer and to show the +/- value of move suggested. It is essential in any chess app that has analysis.
Other than things above, your app is overall very good .
Good choices of chessboards and pieces. Can adjust difficulty and you can also ask for hints. For common openings, I would recommend that the name of the opening be flashed, such Ruy Lopez etc. This is helpful for newbies.
Good Program for iPhone
Easy to see and use on the iPhone. The skill level of the program can be adjusted to match your skill. Recommended.
