Fills a gap
This is the best pgn viewer I found for the iPhone. It has some quirks like that it exits if I switch apps directly into a game in a file/book (need to go back to open the file/book first) and it has some issues reading certain pgn characters e.g. +=,! Etc. (exits)
This could be so much more. Instead it saddles the user with a huge board and a little tiny window to read the text in (7 lines of text at a time, if in portrait mode, and a skinny column that allows about 7 words on a line in landscape mode).
It’s a shame, really. Everyman puts out some interesting and useful books; they deserve a better reader entry than this.
A couple simple things:
-There aren’t enough choices for customizing the board (and none for customizing the pieces). I personally don’t like any of the choices available.
-In the _Move By Move_ books that have questions and answers, it would be much better to have the answers hidden by a fold in the page until we choose to reveal them.
Otherwise, the app functions fine and I love having the e-books available for download.
