Hey, chess-fans! We’ve fixed some bugs and made improvements to Lessons so that they work better and look better on all devices. We also tweaked the strength of a few of the lower-ranked Bots, as they were a bit too tough!
We hope you love this new version of ChessKid! If so, please consider giving the app a fresh five-star rating or leaving a review. It really helps us out! Thank you.

Honestly I think it's the best game but there's some miner issues the first one is that some times you can move the piece and it completely freezes and second you can't change your board if your on iPhone or iPad and also the last thing is that when you want to move up to king 6 or queen 2 It says “DUPLICATE ERROR” I really hate that
I loved this app but recently their have been some issues that are very frustrating! You can’t retry a level if you don’t pass it the first time. It will continue to allow you back in as if you are going to retry the lesson but it starts near the end of the test and when you get done it gives you an error saying you must retry. The only way around this is to go on a computer or use the safari/explorer on your device and go to chesskid online. There it will allow you to retry the lesson and once you pass it you must log out and back in of the app to get to the new level. Until this problem I loved the app and all of my students use it. The only other thing I would change is to allow access to the workouts in the app. As far as teaching kids or adults it is an excellent tool!
I’ve been playing chess on this app to practice for tournaments or for fun. This app is very kid friendly and safe. Most of the time I enjoy playing chess on this game. Overall, this app is pretty good. However the app has some glitches that need to be fixed.
1.) One of the most annoying glitches is when for some reasons ChessKid randomly decides to not let you move when it’s your turn. The only way to stop this glitch is to offer a draw which of course no one wants to do when your winning
2.) One time I was playing chess on the app when my opponent had 20 seconds left and obviously I could win. However when they were down to their 15th second, the app just said I HAD LOST and had no seconds left when it was my opponents turn!? ChessKid is a great app but this needs to be fixed!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
