Great App. Love playing chess and learning about my moves. I hope the app updates soon so that it does all the new features as the online version. I like to go over my great and brilliant move and see all the colors of each move when I view the analysis. The new great move indicator and updated brilliant move algorithm show me that I'm improving.

Very solid user experience. Lessons are helpful, puzzles are neat, and the look is sleek and simple. One thing I don't understand is why this app drinks your battery like a milkshake. It becomes especially apparent after two or three games, when the phone will heat up, the app will begin to drop frames, and you'll lose two or three percent in as many minutes. Not a deal breaker, but confusing for an app that seems like it shouldn't really tax your hardware.

Great app. Only complaint is that I can start a game unintentionally if I accidentally tap the wrong spot on the main menu screen. There should really be a confirmation required beforehand, because I hate knowing I've wasted someone's time. Edit 4/19/22: They fixed it! Added a confirmation to the "vs. random" option, which is a perfect solution. No complaints!
