Good app

The chessbase app in the App Store is buggy. Looks like it's never been updated. But then I found this database. Great for,storing my tournament games. Easy to,use layout, clean lines. I like that it's cloud enabled and searchable. I do wish they would upgrade the chess piece selection. So far there is only one type of chess piece you can use and they look too basic. But overall I'm happy with the app. Please update it often.

This is exactly what I was looking for!

Dude -- so great!

I've only used it once so far, but it's perfect! Thank you very much for a great app!
