Totally awesome app!!

This is a great app for going over games from US Chess magazine pdf or any pdf chess books!! Yes you enter the move manually just like playing over the board. Works great with iPad Pro 12”. I wish there will be more option like adjusting board size, remove coordinate, different pieces, etc. but 5 start all the way. There is no other app like this that I know.


Same crashes when loading books

Sometimes when uploading .pdf books the reading panel shows entirely white and the app is rendered useless.
I have to then uninstall and reinstall the app, and then the books again.
When it’s working it’s great.


Blank Book Screen

After several months of problem-free use, I uploaded a .pdf, and the book screen has become blank and unusable. I retained data and documents, deleted app and reinstalled. Same issue. Any Fixes?
