Customer Reviews

A great alternative game site when your friends are to busy.

I enjoy playing blitz and rapid chess games with this App. I find it a wonderful source of spacial cognitive ability enhancement.
The news and articles by Peter Doggers are well written and timely. You play against chess players from many different countries. The tactics training is fun and if you upgrade you receive extra features. Lessons are available and charts and statistics show your progress.
I play tournament chess at the West Valley Chess Club. Our members use computers to train and analyse the games.
By playing many bullet games Online games I was able to achieve the 1st place of the Chaba Mehes memorial tournament. My ability to calculate quickly helped me defeat my rivals.
Developing an opening strategy with online chess is another benefit. You can pick your favorite player and watch live games. Whether you are an amateur or considering becoming a professional, this App will be a great resource.

A fantastic app for all chess levels.

As both a programmer and a novice chess player, I can testify a lot of work, and a lot of love, went into this app. A lot of chess apps have the same run of the mill features: play vs. a computer at various skill levels or play online and receive a score that will increase or decrease based on your win ratio.

This is fine, but this app decided to go much further. I have never been in a chess club or received lessons, but I’ve always wanted to be a good chess player. You can learn a lot by playing the game a bunch online or against a computer, but you won’t really learn tactics, how to properly set up a board, and everything else one needs to know to excel at the game.

This app teaches you all of that and more. They have an advanced version, but I’m doing fine with the free version. I’ve already noticed that my ability to strategize and develop my pieces has increased quite a bit. Chess has became less of a game where I figure it out move by move, but finally something that I can think out and consider. I attribute that all to this app’s lessons.

If you’re a beginner looking to develop your skills, or an advanced player looking to brush up on lessons, or a master looking to have fun online, you’ll be able to do all of those things here. I wish app development was typically this good.



This app is a great source if you want to learn how to play chess or just improve your game! This app has taught me tons of new gameplay moves, better coordinate recognization on a chess board, and has helped me find opponents around my rating level. It might take a bit to get down/up to your rating level because you start at 1000. There are two things I wish this app has, 1. The 4 player chess mode and 2. A way to alert your friends if you want to play or if your online. Other than those two minor things this app is the best chess app you can get for free! It’s even better than some of the ones you have to pay for!
