When Scanning Photos

First off this app is great so far
I am able to organize Chess boards from a book i am studying.

When I take photos of boards my photos show newest at the Top
For some reason when looking at my photos from this App it switched the order of just the boards.
This is just the data entry phase very boring and cookie cutter
It’s amazing how wrong you can be when entering information for the wrong board.
It’s actually making my head spin

Just letting you know this happened

Again this app looks like exactly what I am looking for to organize my study of this book

Keep you updated on how it goes

Developer Response ,

Hello Steve, thank you so much for your feedback. We're glad to hear our app helps you with your chess training.
As to the saved games and positions, they currently appear from newest to oldest. Would you prefer them to be saved in the reverse order? If yes, we'll take your suggestion in to account for our future updates. You can always send your feedback and suggestions to We'd love to hear from you.
Have a great day!

Excellent app for chess players

I have been looking for an app for a while to scan paper puzzles. This app comes very close. When u scan it gets most of the positions correct except for some reason queen (color) and Bishop. Minor thing! Thanks for the app.

Update: 11/7. Not sure what has changed. Now the scanning is totally off. Not off by one or two pieces but off by most of the pieces. Something got really messed up in updates. I have sent errors through app. Thanks

Update 12/24: recognition is much better again. Thanks Future feature suggestion: after scanning a position if there is an option to play against computer. Basically we are reading a book (silman’s) and it gives challenging end games. We want to try out all the positions against computer. Thanks and happy holidays

Hi. Thank you so much for your feedback. You can report bad recognition using the top right button in Edit mode. This will help us to make scan feature even better.

Broken / scams purchase

So I was told in needed to purchase to scan a book pdf but the app defaults to silver which won’t scan books. Trusting the app I paid for the silver but then realized the mistake as it still wouldn’t scan the pdf. So I upgraded to gold. But the broken app still shows I have silver year even though I paid for the one month of gold. So I tried to cancel everything and get my money back but cancelling not available for a couple days. Then the gold was able to be canceled but not the silver. Just avoid the whole mess. A nightmare and basically they took the money and I got nothing of what I wanted and I can’t get a refund. Buyer beware.
