Beautiful In It’s Simplicity and Utility

This is easily the most human chess game on the App Store. Playing a computer is fun and all but this allows me to play multiple casual games at once via video chat and email. Or play in the park, the bus, camping, or the beach with a friend without losing any pieces or having them knocked over. The ability to save the board is especially nice because it allows me to switch between multiple games without having to take photos or own multiple chess boards.

Very handy study tool

I don't have the visualization skills to read through a chess game without a board. If I have my iPad or my iPhone, this program does the trick. Same with studying end games from a book or website. With a number of moves between diagrams, this program lets me follow along move by move. I know that you can do the same in a playing program by setting up human vs human and setting up the position, but with this program, it is super easy and convenient.

Great practice tool

When going through chess books and they explore different lines, you can back up to a particular starting point. No engine or help-it is what it says , just a simple board. One addition that would be nice is a move counter so you know if you’re on track with what you’re studying.
