Very Good

A very nice chess database program. One of the better ones I have seen on OS X. Not quite as polished as Hiarcs Chess Explorer which is far more expensive, or ChessX and I have only used it a short time but I haven’t seen any major issues. I would like to see the ability to install additional chess engines such as Komodo. The PGN parsing is excellent. The notation display is also excellent. Multiple variations and null moves are both well supported.

Not Ready for Sale

This description for this app made it sound interesting. Someday it might be. For the moment, it contains very little material, and its essential functions do not work. Customers should avoid this product. It’s presence in the App Store raises serious doubts about Apple’s quality-control standards.
