I've used a few of these apps, this is so far the best one. As a beginner, I appreciate this app because it breaks down so many situations you face in chess and it challenges you on them using puzzles. There are 100 puzzles for each level of difficulty (easy medium hard). Other apps want to over challenge you from the start and I found that to not be as effective. Whereas this app pretty much installs the lessons in your head.

The quality of tactics available to solve are as good as it gets. What I feel is lacking, is the ability to study the position of a puzzle after solving it; however, after using stockfish on each of the first 67 puzzles, I've found the solution isn't the best move in 5 of the puzzles. I do want to mention all 5 examples seem to be ignoring obvious computer lines. Which honestly is wonderful; however, I would suggest adding in a bonus find for them. It would be a wonderfully unique addition.

Good for basic learning, but there's issues. For example, with "mate in X moves" part, there are occasionally multiple solutions, but only one will be accepted. Other valid solutions will be marked as errors. In addition, it doesn't really offer advice on strategy or how to analyse the game. Instead it simply has you move pieces around without explaining anything. Not a good way to really learn the game.
