Base-Chess is a chess database for the ambitious or professional chess player. All games, player or event information can be saved within the database. With the assistance of manifold search or presentation functions the contained data can be retrieved and analysed. The number of storable data is only limited by the available space in the commercial version.

BBase-Chess includes a multitude of interesting features:

- intuitive entering of games
- easy navigation through variations and comments within games
- identical players and events are saved only once
- fast search for games base on user defined game positions even when using large databases
- automatic classification of games by well known classification schemes (ECO or NIC) or self-made opening classification systems
- display of all existing next moves including the final game results from a defined game position taking user entered filters into account
- display of all existing following moves in tabular form from a defined game position taking user entered filters into account
- storage of historical ratings
- analysis of overall performance of selected player
- analysis of player's performance related to game classifications

Starluver ,

Great app but could be more intuitive.

This app is great but takes some time to get used to.
I’m just using it to put my favorite games in manually with my own comments. Initially the board was too small but I somehow made it larger by clicking around randomly.
While imputing a test game I kept hitting the gear icon on the top right intuitively thinking it would allow changes to the players or results, but instead it brings up a menu I still don’t understand. In order to actually edit the players you need to make sure the board is in input mode by clicking an icon next to the board, only then it’ll allow you to make changes and comments to the game.
I still don’t understand the analysis mode as any comments made in the analysis mode seem to be removed once I click away.
I don’t know if it’s already a feature and I just need to find it, but it would be cool if the analysis mode pulled an engine to check the moves.
Anyway, I think this app is great and with a little more polish can be absolutely amazing for the average person.
