Ratings and Reviews
It’s unclear if the course tab and lessons tab show the same content or not.
The UI is too colorful and childish.
Purchases does not sync across devices…
However, there is no other app that can compete with app.
Developer Response ,
Thank your reviewing. The course is a linear curriculum which combines games and lessons. The lessons do contain additional lessons not found in the course.
You can sync purchases across devices and platforms, just ensure you're signed to the same user on both devices. However, we are aware of some glitches when playing simultaneously. We'll work on this and ensure it becomes more stable asap.
You must try the Ace in the Sleeve game!
As a devoted user of Magnus Trainer, I was very curious what this new app had to offer. And what a great app it is. Beautiful design, delightful learning experience with the lesson block system, and super additive mini-games. Ace in the Sleeve is a particular favorite of mine.
My two nieces just learned all the rules of chess using this app, and I can say with great confidence this the best way - and the most fun way - to learn chess for beginners and potentially even more advanced players. Excited for more updates.

I purchased monthly on my iPad and later launched in iPhone and it lost all credits. Before a flight I purchased 50 tokens ($4) and worked fine on flight. Launched iPad to play with larger screen and took back to 2 tokens. So launched phone and same. So I lost $4 and have to cancel monthly.
I also have purchased and played through level 6 of magnus as a child since that is the only thing you can do on a plan. So I lost all that progress and coins.
