Very handy study tool

I don't have the visualization skills to read through a chess game without a board. If I have my iPad or my iPhone, this program does the trick. Same with studying end games from a book or website. With a number of moves between diagrams, this program lets me follow along move by move. I know that you can do the same in a playing program by setting up human vs human and setting up the position, but with this program, it is super easy and convenient.

Fills a chess need!

Having just a chess board where pieces can easily be moved around to set up practice positions is a great feature of this app...who needs another chess computer with so many others out there? So this app in all its simplicity is so welcomed and unique!

However, it loses points for lacking two main portrait view on iPad and the board alone cannot expand to fill the entire screen... If author fixes these, this program would be perfect for all who study chess!

Handy, easy to use, cannot save positions

Handy for playing or for studying positions. Easy to use. But there is no Help, and, when you tap Save, it fails with the message "You must insert text". There is no way that I can find to insert any text. I imagine the text it wants is a name for the position.
