Cool game! We use this app for this thing we do called "Chess Club" and it is cool! And on the website it said there was like a dog and a cat named " Miss Pickles and I was excited to try it but on the app I went to play against bot and I did not see miss pickles or the dog. Please fix this! And on the website when I play against the bots and capture their king their king just respawns and captures my piece! Please fix this bug online!

Awful app. The lessons are over complicated, don't flow and don't let you learn. It's overpriced and under delivers. There's nothing good about this app.

Data mining scam! Once downloaded, you can only play vs a beginner bot that tells you E each move to make. If you try to select anther bot, your asked to log in to access them.... Its only after you log in that the app tells you that all the other bots require a premium subscription.
