▻ Do you want to learn or improve at chess?
▻ Do you want to master the most prestigious, the classiest game ever, while having fun?
THIS APP IS EASY TO USE, and there is no boring lesson to read.
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.

The best chess app you will ever find
I love this app! It has a guide to the rules, and it tells you when you are in a position to check your opponent. You can play the computer with difficulties from playing at random to the world championship. You can customize your board with tons of different options, and you can enable "threats" and "suggestions". These tell you where your prices are vulnerable, and where the best moves are. This app is great because it is easy to promote pawns. As soon as you get your pawn all the way across, you can choose to promote it to a rook, knight, queen, or bishop. For the credit system, just play on the easiest mode until you have the credits you want. Easily the best app on my iPad.
Great training tool
I am a USCF expert on my way to master hopefully. Discovered this app at the airport because I am a traveling salesman. This is more than just a time killer! I am someone who doesn't like to study openings and just want an interesting playable game, but this app has allowed me to use the opening book and play a ton of games in my openings. Now instead of wasting time at the airport I am booking up and making my weakness a strength. Use the openings book and then keep going using the top suggestion to follow the ideas into the middle game and see if the opening was a success or if you want to try a new variation.
There are tons of different levels of difficulty to choose from, ranging from easy for beginners to so ridiculously hard I lost in about 5 moves. The great thing is that if you are really bad at chess, turn on the suggestions for a while. Once you think you can beat an easy difficulty without the settings, you're already getting better. It teaches you how to be better at chess just by playing, which is good because reading about how to play is boring. Very fun and well made. If you want to get better at chess without wanting to rather stare at paint dry, this is the app for you.😀
