Excellent puzzles, animations too fast

The puzzles are great. When I need a hint or to see the solution the animations are so fast it’s hard to tell what happened, a minor and easily fixed complaint. Highly recommend.

Good app, challenging puzzles

Lots of puzzles; hints and solutions. I have enjoyed this app for over a year. One issue: lately it has been crashing.

Good chess puzzles

I'm really enjoying this app. However, a few of the puzzles come up with different moves for the opponent than the official solution. I should have kept notes, but as I recall, at least one puzzle had an escape from mate in three.
