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.

Great app but 2 requests

This app is great but neglects the defensive side of chess. I would love to see 4 play modules added. Some with simple defense problems where a piece is threatened, and others with advanced threat problems, that address not just threat of mate, but more complex loss of material as well. This is a great app as is, but would be the best available if it addressed the defensive side of chess with about 600 defense puzzles.

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.
