Basic errors in the puzzles

I have already found basic errors in the puzzles. If I didn't know a little about chess, I wouldn't have noticed.

Apparent Bug in App

When you complete the last puzzle of a section the app will not check it off as complete on the puzzles summary page. This makes it very difficult (and annoying) to accurately track your progress over time. Good start but developer did not test it enough--you find this problem after using the app 5 minutes.

Needs checking

App is nice and compact. I have the first two levels. I wish for more information on the lessons. Like many chess books etc they tell you the what but not the why of certain tactics and strategies.

There are also some errors in the puzzles where pieces seem to be missing. They need to check each one for accuracy.
