Very Well Done
I’ve played through multiple tactical and strategy apps for chess, but this is by far the best. Great app!
Amazing app among their other amazing apps
I really am impressed by this company. They seem to have chess problems for every ability. The package has more than 1000 problems and even if they seem on the easy side, some themes were new to me while others bear repeating until they're automatic. The amount of problems gives this effect as you see the same theme over and over again. Then on to the next one.
