A great way to keep up with the chess world

updated: 07Dec

The Dev cleared up what turned out to be an error in expectation management only...the transition between subscriptions wasnt clear; it is now.

I used this app most recently to keep up with the FIDE 2016 WC in NYC. This app, with its companion analysis tool, combine to make the iPhone a great way to study chess.


i love this app except for this next bit:

i paid for a 1 yr. subscription. then when it was offered i paid for a lifetime subscription. the 1 year subscription ended but the lifetime subscription did not take effect!

i have noticed that the lifetime offering was removed but i did not think the dev would keep the money paid for the lifetime, without at least offering me some level of extended my calculation, i am owed 4 1 year subscriptions.


Does what it is supposed to do. Give you the latest games and allows you to analyze them. Best so far.

Awesome App
