I had so much fun in training mode

I rarely play chess. I know some beginner strategies like attacking the middle. But I just played my first game in the app under the watchful eye of the training mode. I was warned four different times that the coach doesn’t recommend that move. Every single time was a simple unforced error that would have lost my piece with no gain. Near the end of the game, the coach was silent. Undo a couple of times gave the same help the coach gave earlier to save my pieces. The end result was I won the game and felt like I earned it. Without the help I would have lost a lot of pieces and likely the game. Now I am motivated to play some more and improve my game.

Simple, easy to use, consistent human-like opponent

I love this app! You just play it. I can set it at any rating. I have it set at 1320, and it rates me around 1150, even though online I rate in the high 1400s. Either way, I get a great game every time with those settings. It took me a while to choose the right opponent strength, but the computer plays more like a real player than most. The computer moves immediately; I take all the time I want because I am just training on this app; and we wind up playing at the same level and it really helps me.

My Very Last Review for this App

Great App. I enjoy the constant updates and the effort by developers to continually make it better. Thank you.

However, I believe this is my third favorable review for this same app. There is a message from the app which states that the app's review requests are reset after every update. I am giving one last review simply to get rid of the message.

This "reset" is a flawed practice. Get rid of it - rely on new customers' reviews - because pushing the patience of the app's veteran users will work against you in this forum.

Still the best chess app out there, but even that has limits.

Dear Developer, January 24, 2018,
You have indeed updated the constant review requests. There are also many, many new features since my last app review.
Ironically, I forgot to reflect this in the review section because of the lack of reminders. Five Stars! Best Chess App on the planet. Thank you!
