Great chess app to learn fundamentals and tactics

Great app to learn chess. Explains rules, theories, openings, middle games, end gams, tactics and more to learn the game. Gives you a hands-on experience to teach you the concepts given and does a great job explaining how to apply the concepts. I have already made a few purchases to extend the content. However, $22 to unlock all of the content seems pretty steep. I think $10 to unlock all of the content at once would be fair.

I love this app because it has excellent tactics in different areas that has helped me to develop a keen eye to recognize tactical solutions to different problems. The trick is to go over them constantly until it becomes part of you.

The lessons are another plus because they are tailored for the club player. It is helping me to look at the board from the perspective of an expert. I'm also learning to play with a plan, but it is important to repeat the lessons as often as possible in order to understand some of the complexities of chess positions.

On the other hand, I would love to see an improvement in the quality of the boards and have the ability to choose different kind of pieces.

By the way, the prices for different packages are very reasonable.

Do not use. Will make you more dumb.

I give this App zero stars it's not even worth one star. However they make you pick at least one. It wasn't even worth the ten mins it took me to complete it. There are very severe bugs in this app. Many of the solutions have multiple ways of solving in equal or less moves while better protecting your pieces. Multiple scenarios give you mate where the king or other pieces can easily block or defend and change the tide against the attacker drastically. Do not use this if you are a novice, want to improve, or just want interesting scenarios. This is a very sloppy and poor excuse for a chess app.
