My Very Last Review for this App
Great App. I enjoy the constant updates and the effort by developers to continually make it better. Thank you.
However, I believe this is my third favorable review for this same app. There is a message from the app which states that the app's review requests are reset after every update. I am giving one last review simply to get rid of the message.
This "reset" is a flawed practice. Get rid of it - rely on new customers' reviews - because pushing the patience of the app's veteran users will work against you in this forum.
Still the best chess app out there, but even that has limits.
[Edit - July 20, 2015] Another post-game request. Another star.
[Edit - Aug 24, 2015] Another request for review. Another star.
[Edit - Aug 27, 2015] No update, but another request, so here I am. Another star. (Tell me, what is the original point of paying for this one over the Free version if I have constant pop-up requests?)
[Edit - Oct 27, 2015] Another post-game reset. I'm done. So long.
Very Nice Chess App
I just tested out the app after the most recent update on October 1st. It is really strange how some things haven't been changed at all and a new graphics errors are visible. For example the update says new chess sets were added. I look through all of the available ones and I didn't see any new ones.
But that wouldn't be a problem. Old available ones are ok.
There are still no traditional common Chess fonts in the game. Ones like "Alpha" or "Vintage" aren't available.
As far as new bugs. I use the app on iPhone 6, and there is always a bright green horizontal line glowing on the bottom of the board. It looks like graphics weren't tested thoroughly. The bright green line overlaps the bottom frame of the board. Very distracting.
Please fix these small things, Mastersoft.
Lower levels are very strong.
I love the graphics on this program ...by far the best of any program i've seen.
The basic black-and-white is very good however however the geometric chess are, wild and difficult to see on a small iPhone screen.
The chest engine is very good and it plays like a human player more or less although I found it makes blunders maybe in the beginning but then it comes on strong at the end which is like a human player. On it's lower levels like 1400 it's very strong I pit it against Shredder and it beat a 1600 Level easily.
So I think it's lower-level designations are not very accurate.
It has a hint feature which is rather slow it takes about two or three seconds for it to give you an answer which is a little bit slower than Shredder.
