You can adjust Shredder’s playing strength from beginner to master level. If you like, Shredder automatically adjusts his strength to yours. He even calculates an Elo rating for you. This is how the playing strength of chess players is typically measured.

Iconic Benchmark

This App doesn’t disappoint.
There’s so many Chess Apps to choose from and this is the one that’s stood the test of time for me.
You should aim to play at least 10 games a day and expect to lose at least 8 of them if you want to improve.
Winning a Chess computer is straight forward (right) all you have to do is achieve 1 of 3 things…
Achieve Checkmate
Get it to resign
Cause it to run out of time
Doing this is requires skill and Shredder can help you improve your skill with the built in coach feature.
No subscription, no advertisements; just a functional Chess engine.
It’s a winner for me.

Quite Brilliant!

To get such a strong playing version of 'Shredder' for less than £6 is fantastic, I have not seen another chess app on the iPhone that comes close to this program in terms of user interface, playing strength and ability to meet my needs of a mobile chess program. The app brings you the formidable Shredder chess engine along with an ability to customise the playing strength to meet your own needs. If you are winning too easily or losing too quickly, simply change the playing strength with the provided 'slider' control, alternatively set Shredder to auto-adjust its strength according to your play! In addition to playing chess the app also provides 1,000 puzzles for you to solve and be scored on, perfect for passing time whilst travelling etc. Well done to the the Shredder team, this is the best chess app on the iPhone!
