Great help to improve chess

Very good app for beginners to improve their chess thinking skills. Also good for intermediates & maybe experts. Keep thinking till u find something no matter how improbable as that may lead to a great win ahead!

Fantastic! it..suggestion is to add all moves leading to mate rather than just the one correct move...also it's hangs sometimes, would be good to fix it!!!
