This app is for everyone.

I suggest everyone should purchase this app. Although it might sounds expensive, it is actually one of the best chess app I ever had. I will tell you why. First of all, the free version have credit system, whilst the pro one gives you the option to play unlimited. Second of all, the coach gives you suggestions of the very strong moves that a grandmaster would play. The coach will comment about the positive moves that you made, not the negative one. The coach inside the app is like real chess player talking to me. I can feel your voice. I can feel your tone. There are literally more than 6000 classical collections of chess history that most chess don't even have, anyway. I love the designs of the app and there are so many options of the app that are very useful. There are even rules of chess, if any beginner tried to join in chess with millions of people. Chess is a beauty of nature. Chess is a logic board game. Chess is creative.

However, you can't save this to iCloud. You can save this by backup.

While it isn't the strongest chess app (stockfish and smallfish easily beat this app) it is still strong enough to crush everyone I know, and I know some good chess players (nationally ranked). This app is unparalleled as a training app, which is why I love it. It's playing strength ranges from moving at random to grand master precision with of 50 levels in between, which it makes it easy to improve one small step at a time. Analyze your games after you play them to see what good moves you missed. Analyze thousands of included grandmaster games to learn from the best. You can customize just about anything you might want from a huge list of options on the settings page. Sometimes this app is wrong and the opening book isn't spectacularly large or diverse, which is why I would also recommend downloading smallfish (which uses the stockfish engine), but the chess tiger engine is still much stronger than you. You have something to learn from this

Gentleman are you...?

So you say you're a "true gentleman". You open doors for ladies. You speak only when you're spoken to. You say please and thank you. You have a firm handshake. You know how to change a flat tire. You know how to cook. You know how to make a great cocktail. You help those in need...BUT...Do you know how to play chess?
Well then ladies and gentleman, STEP RIGHT UP, this app will get you or your man in your life to get you where you ought to be. Rubbing elbows with the greatest of the greatest like, Einstein, Bobby Fischer, Benjamin Franklin, Charlie Chaplin, Mahatma Ghandi, The most interesting man in the world, and Snoop Dogg. All these great men have enjoyed a great game of chess with someone in their lifetime. Possibly with a joint in their hand, I see you BenFrank! Download this app and play it everyday! When you wake up. During lunch. Before you go to sleep. And believe me, in about a week, your name will be amongst those great men I mentioned earlier. As Seinfeld once said, "The Pin Is Mightier Than The Sword" or was that Reinfeld?
