D70%

Nice aplication

W70%
by W####:

Very good

Z70%
by Z####:

The app is clean if somewhat complicated. A tutorial for first time users would be helpful to show the various features and describe the icons and legends. The content of the app is based on legendary tactics study course, and the delivery of that content is really good. My real life rating hovers around 1800 but in the app, I am now close to 2200. That degree of rating inflation must be corrected. I think the app does not penalize sufficiently when a wrong move is suggested.

A70%
by A####:

This app is fantastic. I only wish that there would be some explanation on the right moves because I don't always understand the reasons why those moves are the right one and I have figure it out on my own. Otherwise, amazing app. Very good for people learning to improve their tactics.

R70%
by R####:

This chess app is very user friendly and the puzzles are challenging enough to help you learn quite easily. I had stopped playing chess for some time before I got this app so I was pretty rusty but within a few weeks I found myself getting better and better.

J70%
by J####:

Love the app, however sometimes the opponents move seem to be obscure (at least to an apprentice). Is it closely tied to the book? Is there a way to read further explanation of the tasks?
