While it isn't the strongest chess app (stockfish and smallfish easily beat this app) it is still strong enough to crush everyone I know, and I know some good chess players (nationally ranked players to be more specific). This app is unparalleled as a training app, which is why I love it. It's playing strength ranges from moving at random to grand master precision on a spectrum of 50 different levels, which it makes it easy to improve one small step at a time. Analyze your games after you play them to see what good moves you missed. Analyze thousands of included grandmaster games to learn literally from the best. Customize the layout to an astonishing degree (you can customize just about anything you might want from a huge list of options on the settings page). Sometimes this app is wrong and the opening book isn't spectacularly large or diverse, which is why I would also recommend downloading smallfish (which uses the stockfish engine), but the chess tiger engine (which this app uses) is still much much better than you, and you can still improve your chess thanks to the spectacular features on this app.

Gentleman are you...?

Unknown Apple Client

So you say you're a "true gentleman". You open doors for ladies. You speak only when you're spoken to. You say please and thank you. You have a firm handshake. You know how to change a flat tire. You know how to cook. You know how to make a great cocktail. You help those in need...BUT...Do you know how to play chess?
Well then ladies and gentleman, STEP RIGHT UP, this app will get you or your man in your life to get you where you ought to be. Rubbing elbows with the greatest of the greatest like, Einstein, Bobby Fischer, Benjamin Franklin, Charlie Chaplin, Mahatma Ghandi, The most interesting man in the world, and Snoop Dogg. All these great men have enjoyed a great game of chess with someone in their lifetime. Possibly with a joint in their hand, I see you BenFrank! Download this app and play it everyday! When you wake up. During lunch. Before you go to sleep. And believe me, in about a week, your name will be amongst those great men I mentioned earlier. As Seinfeld once said, "The Pin Is Mightier Than The Sword" or was that Reinfeld?

Step-by-step tutor


As you play against the app, each time you decide what your next move would be (and before you make that move) you ask the app to show you the best move you could make. Often, I find that my chosen move is not the best, although it is not clear why. I then make the recommended move, and discover (over the next couple of moves) why that recommendation was made. As you get better, you find that your move more often matches the app's recommended move. You can then move the quality of play up a notch, and find yourself playing a more challenging opponent. This incremental approach (combined with the app's play-by-play tutoring) is a really GREAT way to learn how to play better chess. If you truly want to become a better chess player, this app is well worth the price.
