What's New in Version 4.0
Improved performance on iPhone5.
Using this app I was able to get better at chess. After only a month of a game a day, I was able to beat my father! He's been playing chess for 1 year now. I'm able to beat him consistently. This app helped me develop my strategies from a "just get the king in check" strategy to strategically placing pieces. Thank you very much for this app!
Great chess game. Has hints if you're not sure where to move. And an undo button. I like the game bc I win a lot so I'd say the computer isn't that challenging but you can change the setting to hard. Recommend highly.
This is one of the better chess apps because it doesn't force you to play with other people, my only problem with it is that it's easy on hard mode.
