TRAIN - Improve your chess

Chessimo´s ® innovative approach to chess training is based on repeatedly solving real game situations chosen by the Brazilian GM Gilberto Milos. The exercises are sorted by themes (tactics, strategy, endgames) and severity.

Chessimo ® helps you improve your basic knowledge of tactics, endgames, openings and strategy in a playful way. Each exercise demonstrates interactive training and asks you for the correct answer to a question posed by the software.

Chessimo ® helps you to:

- Significantly improve your ability to combine moves

- Recognize tactical moves more quickly

- Perfect your openings and endgames

- Think ahead more efficiently

CHECK - Play against the computer

If you´re looking for a real challenge, look no further: Crafty is always up for a game. By playing against one of the strongest chess programs you will be able to turn your training´s progress into success – as documented by your individual Elo rating.

After the game is over Chessimo ® will display your personal Elo rating, which you may register with the Apple Game Center for inclusion in a high score list of all registered Chessimo ® users.

PLAY - Use your iPad as a chessboard

Playing chess has never been more convenient: Chessimo ® can turn your iPad into a chessboard. During your lunch break or while you´re travelling, the only thing you´ll need is an opponent ready to rise to your challenge.

Now have fun with Chessimo ®.

Great app

I have been using this app for a week and it is the best app I have found for learning to play chess. I enjoy the fact that they set up a chess game in progress and ask you to decide the next move. If you are right you move to the next situation. You stay on each game until you correctly move the piece. You can play a game or learn tactics, openings, end play. There is much more if I decide to make any in app purchases. This is just what I have been looking for. It also make the learning process fun.

Great Chess App!!!

This is by far the best chess training app on the market. If you are a serious chess player, then look no further. GM Gilberto Milos has crafted an excellent selection of tatics, endgames, and strategies for the improving chess player. The only flaw is that more modules would be great. Please consider...!!! There seems to be a problem with playing crafty. The program crashes every time I play crafty..... Please fix.

Great app

I love this app. After using it for a few months my chess game has improved significantly. I recommend this app to all chess players of any level. You could pay hundreds of dollars for this program but only pay one low fee. Don't let this one go by.
