I like it, but it's really frustrating that if you click on one of your pieces and then on another one of your pieces it counts as an error. It shouldn't be counted as an error since you can't move over your own pieces anyway, plus it's unintuitive to have to click on the same piece twice to unselect it as that's not the usual way it's implemented. Otherwise i love how the puzzles are laid out and categorizef. Fix the error click issue and this app would be 5 stars easy.

I'm sure it hasn't hurt my game. Developer claims there is only 1 correct move. It appears that several puzzles have 2-3 correct moves, although they dock your score if it is not the move they prefer! I wouldn't think the developer is an expert player. If you use hint, sometimes when it gives you the hint & you make the move it suggests, it says wrong move! If you hit back & do over it will take the move! Puzzle play has improved, I'm playing the most difficult with very few hints and mistakes!

Thank you for your feedback. All chess puzzles have only 1 correct solution. If you think you have found a mistake please email us with details at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the exercises may have invisible at first glance opportunities to protect the opponent. We wish you a pleasant game!
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.
