Shredder, the most successful chess program ever, is now also available for the iPhone. You can play against Shredder, analyze with him and solve chess puzzles. It offers the usual Shredder standard for your pocket.

In addition to the outstanding playing strength of the 12 times computer chess world champion, Shredder is also able to mimic the play of a human chess player with any playing strength. He even deliberately makes typical human mistakes in those levels.

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.

During the game a coach is watching your moves and warns you if you are about to make a mistake.

Shredder chess

One of the best chess Apps I’ve ever seen. Great for steadily learning and building ‘chess confidence’.

Good, but...

... as the other reviewer recently said, it's a shame the app isn't universal - t chess pro represents far better value fir money and to be honest it has a lot more functionality. I mean, I love Shredder on my iPod Touch but I've recently got an iPad 2 and I can't see the need to pay 6 quid fir shredder on that, too, as I have t chess pro which also has an in app option to allow the analysis engine to utilise the dual core iPad CPU. Until Shredder catches up with the competition by adding such options and by the very basic inclusion of clocks/time options, for example, it's going to start losing the race to apps like T Chess and Chess Tiger (simply 'Chess' in App Store), which I understand is soon to go to iPad, not sure if it's as universal or paid, but it will likely have the edge over Shredder when it does as Shredder doesn't appear to be moving with times despite being a great engine. in fact, you may as well opt for Stockfish at this point in time.....universal, incredibly strong and free as well...
