Chess Free NO ADS
By Christophe Théron
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
NEW 2017 VERSION !!!
▻ Do you want to learn or improve at chess?
▻ Do you want to master the most prestigious, the classiest game ever, while having fun?
It's EASY, and you can start right now!
How does it work? It's really simple: you just play! The coach shows you the moves a Grandmaster would pick. Not just one move, HE SHOWS YOU THE 4 BEST MOVES!
Sounds silly? Well think about it... How did you learn to talk when you were a child? Did you take grammar and spelling lessons? Of course not. You just went with the flow, because that's the most effective way to learn!
This app allows you to do just that, AND IT WORKS!
It is also recommended for ADVANCED PLAYERS and EXPERTS: it includes 6000 grandmaster games that you can study with the analysis feature. You can save your games, send them by email, and even import games from other chess apps. The built-in chess engine can also play at the World Championship level if you want.

Follow the light...
...the green light that is! Work your way up to a level where you can't win, then turn on the green button and play a few games until you begin to feel the rhythms and patterns of that level. Helps with opening and protecting your king. You also begin to realize that just one piece difference wins the game at higher levels. Try out the masters levels just for fun - hard to imagine anyone being able to think that far ahead - probably the same guys that memorize pi out to 10,000 decimal places. Only improvement I would suggest would be to provide more commentary on strategies as you are moving and an overall description which characterizes each major difficulty level (i.e., the novice level player does not miss seeing attacks and has a command over all pieces. Works in single strategy, etc). For that I would pay more. I have painfully learned more about draws and stalemates than I ever wanted. Great app!
This is a bad program.
First of all, I wasn't going to write a review even though this chess app is terrible. But EVERY SINGLE TIME I would turn on the app to play, I would get a pop up telling me about either, reviewing, or asking me to buy. And the pop-up was hilariously stupid on top of it. Each time, it would say that there was only a limited time to buy the app for a certain price. But I play this app every day sometimes and having this pop up saying they have this limited price every single day is annoying if not dumb.
Now, mind you, there is an option to choose"never" when the pop up asks you to rate the app. Does it work? Noooo. You click on never, and it keeps coming back consistently, annoyingly.
But onto the app itself. Download it for yourself. Play it for yourself. The game has very predictable moves that make growing as a chessplayer impossible with this app. I play it when I want to turn my brain off and to amuse myself sometimes but overall it is not the app to actually grow and learn from.
Improve the algorithm for moves on your stupid game, stop with the pop ups every single time someone wants to play, and when you have an option for the player to turn off pop-ups stick to your guns and give them that option.

Great computer play at all levels
This app was actually better than I thought it would be.
I just want to play casually and get a little better here and there. I'm not trying to be a GM; I just want to be better than my friends.
Other chess apps were fine but the play was either way too weak or way to strong. I would find the level of play to change dramatically from poor openings to very strong end game (or maybe I just have a poor end game). Anyways this app let me change the rank of my opponent until it was beatable but challenging, and now I can figure out incrementally what my Elo might actually be and slowly play more challenging competition
