Great Chess App

This app is fantastic! There are so many chess apps out there but this one rises above the rest due to the thoughtfulness of the lessons. Very thorough without being boring - looking forward to finishing all the levels. Highly recommend.

ChessEssentials is in my opinion the best learning app that I found so far. I consider myself a beginner and being a strategic game, chess has many moves and rules that beginners often find confusing. This app is a user friendly, open to all ages, with an effective teaching that got my 5 year old daughter interested. I wish to see more exercises and puzzles every level. I give a thumbs-up!

Great method!

Very slick design. The self teaching method is easy to use, flexible and increasing challenging as you move along. Can't wait for the other levels to come live!
