Here are all the players whose entire careers are available in this app:

- Alexander Alekhine

- Bobby Fisher
- Anatoly Karpov
- Garry Kasparov
- Emanuel Lasker
- Aron Nimzowitsch

What's New in Version 1.7

This update adds 13,867 new games from Anand, Spassky, Smyslov, Petrosian, Morphy, Kramnik, and Euwe. This brings the total to 19 grandmasters whose entire careers are represented here. Thanks to everyone who asked for these Grandmasters games to be added.

Customer Reviews


As another reviewer said, this has the potential to be a great app. However, at the moment it is very buggy and incomplete, as if it were still at an early stage of development when the author gave up on it and released it to make a quick buck. I find it almost insulting how simple it would be to fix many of the bugs, such as many of the games playing random, incorrect first moves or ending by replaying the first move of the game, regardless of whether that is even possible. Clearly the author is either extremely lazy or uninterested in actually making something worthwhile. In either case, don't buy this app.

So full of glitches the games are wrong

This app constantly glitches in a way that the moves of the actual games are incorrect. At times entire piece will be missing at the start of a game. No annotation available either. Has the potential to be a great app, but can't even enjoy with the way it currently is.
