I'm extremely impressed with how the lessons are laid out, and taught. After not playing for 40 years, it was great to see if I could grasp it again at all. The algorithm is intuitive to the player. I left off one star due to the price. For an app that doesn't require frequent updates, have the same level of tech as a photo, video, or AI app, but costs the same is not reasonable to me.

Thank you so much for your kind review! As for the price, we are consistently rolling out updates and new features. Unfortunately, after the free trial expires we do require payment as we use those funds to support the maintenance and development of the application.

This method of coaching is very effective. Ask for help and it first says things like "take a look at..." If you still don't see it, ask again and it shows you. It also trains you by reviewing games you've played and showing you better moves. There's a lot more, too. An awful lot of hard work went into this app and it really shows; Dr. Wolf is exceptional. It's free to try and worth the subscription price if you are serious about learning chess and getting good at it. Happy castling!

This would be a really cool app if there wasn't a subscription model. I would be fine paying to upgrade, or even paying in parts, like an amount for in game coaching, and another amount for the training modes. This move from microtransactions to an endless subscription is just toxic. Let people buy an app. It works perfectly fine offline too so it's not like it needs constant server time. Every app now pretends a subscription is necessary regardless if they change anything over time

I hear you, the price of Dr. Wolf's coaching is not for everyone! We offer a 7-day free trial which gives you full access to all of the features within the app. Have you had a chance to try this out? Unfortunately, after the free trial expires we do require payment as we use those funds to support the maintenance and development of the application.
