Good but could be better

I really like this app, but a couple of glitches...
The first problem I have is with the puzzles. The app gives you the option of playing the same game as the puzzle, to give you a chance to practice solving the puzzle. But what happened last time I played it, I won the game in 3 moves, only I went back to the puzzle and it told me my moves were incorrect! I then used the "coach" (question mark) to discover the moves the game thought I should make & it won the game in several more moves than I had. Not much teaching in that, and I wouldn't consider myself an expert by any means. Also many of the puzzles are too lengthy, requiring too many moves to mate. I could see 3 or 4 but 10 or more leaves too many other directions the game could go. Also, if you decide to "play" the puzzle, you can simply use the question mark to discover the appropriate move, go back to the puzzle and "solve" it. Once the puzzle option of playing it is chosen and the question mark help is utilized, you should not be able to go back and get points for supposedly solving the puzzle. Other than those issues, nice app, especially for the price ;-)

Excellent for novice players

I have been using Shredder for more than a decade. I love that they have a clean, simple version with up to 1500 elo rating which should prove plenty for me for some time to come. They collect no data which I much appreciate. I like to play on my own without any hints but with the option to revert a move which this app allows. Clean wholesome free app from a credible chess software company.

Fantastic app for beginners

This was a great app to get me started. You can easily rewind to any point in the game and change your move at any time. Also gives you suggestions. You can also save your game for later analysis or just to rewatch. But now that I'm past 1500 Elo, I'm looking for a stronger chess engine.
