Ratings and Reviews
My go-to Chess app
Nothing to complain about really. With decent play and puzzles this is a great offline chess app. If I could change one thing it would be to use standard algebraic notation.
My favourite IPhone Chess implementation (and I’ve tried most of them).
I'm loving this app. Very full-featured. I especially like the way it adapts to your level of play and rates you - mind you the rating system is pretty generous when you consider it lets you take back moves in rated games! Strength-wise, any half decent chess engine should kill pretty much anyone except a master-level player, so it's a moot point for 99% of players. What's more interesting is the way it degrades it's play. I'm not quite convinced by Shredder's deliberate mistakes - it plays a strong game then drops some suicidal clanger. But it still makes for a fun, challenging game of chess, and
having such a powerful analysis tool in one's pocket is terrific. Get it. The position setup feature gives it a big edge over Fritz, much as Fritz is king on the PC.
