Great idea but needs improvement The chess board is small; there is alot of unused space around it. Also, would be much better to tap and tap rather than drag and drop to move pieces. I would like to try some of the higher level lessons before i buy the full version, the current trial only has the most basic
Great and fun app to use I love how positive reinforcing this app is, and I love the unique Blue pieces for the black side and how funny coach Jay can be sometimes. I spent $4.99 unlocking the full app, and it was well worth it because I feel like I can go to a chess tournament now (I'm not even lying)! I play with friends and family and I beat them almost every time because of this app. PLEASE ADD A SECTION WHERE YOU CAN PLAY REAL CHESS AGAINST THE COMPUTER ( OR COACH JAY) because that would really complete the app.
Great even for adults Learning chess is one of those items on my bucket list. It was also suggested by my doctor as a type of therapy for a chronic health condition I have. Coach Joe's app is fun and easy to follow. Only wish he had a place for adults to play a real game, like he does for kids.
Great value It's for kids but helpful to adults. Can't beat the value. Positives: great to learn the basics and some intermediate strategies. Pretty easy to understand. Negatives: too redundant. There are dozens of "puzzles" on things that are very simple and you just want to move on. Tip: mute the sounds immediately. They will annoy the hell out of you.
Awesomeness This app is great. I am terrible at chess. With this, the lessons are very simple and creative. For a connect four kind of game player like myself, I learned valuable insight on how to look and what to think about in making a strategy against an opponent. I wish all the lessons were Fereeeee! Haha. Great app.
I'm so happy First of all I am an adult. But have a hard time learning. I always wanted to play chess but it seemed so hard. Now I know how to play. I purchased the extra lessons. And last week I won my husband who learned years ago. Jay has done what the others couldn't. Thank you so much!
