Definitely a good app for learning and practicing chess play and strategy. May not be ideal for beginners or casual players as it starts throwing chess notation at the user quickly. Some additional help files would be welcome to explain the arrows the program uses to suggest moves. When three arrows are presented at the same time, how to tell which comes first? How do you follow an arrow that originates where no piece is? Lessons are presented out of order. A beginner who has just learned the board should next learn openings, not mid- or end- game scenarios. Also, the algorithms are not flexible enough to always recognize a move that is acceptable even if it fits into the overall strategy being demonstrated. Could use a "hint" option for practice play. Only option is to err three times to make the program show you the correct move. I'm inclined to buy the full app, but because of my concerns, will check out others before I buy.
Is this really for beginners? I can't understand a thing. Nothing is explained, they only say "wrong move" and that's it. Am I not understanding something?
Very challenging as it encourages you to think short tactics and long strategy. My chess thinking has improved tremendously in the short time I've been playing through this app
Beginners must install this app.. Awesome app but keep it free for all though it is online doesn't matter...
I guess you should also set up tournaments and multiplayer games to increase people's connectivity
