I used to love this app. But no updates in 2 years! And it shows. Tournament standing are often incorrect, as it is now in a Super Tournament in Croatia. Stockfish engine used for analysis is still 12, not the current 14. No way to limit the list of events by rating, so I'm forced to scroll though a lot of very low rated events to find a super GM one.

Abandoned (last update in 2020) and botderline useless at this point. Standings don't work - showing 0 points for every player in every tournament. Even the Candidates Tournament can't be followed (it's well into the first round right now, and it shows as not started in this app). The average rating (still over 4 stars) is a remnant of the times when it was still functional, it no longer reflects its current state. Not worth installing.

The ads appear on full screen and cannot be clicked away or closed, de facto making the app unusable. I understand the need for ads but when they take over the entire experience they turn the application into garbage. I can't even say whether this app is good or bad per sé, as I literally could never access anything on it (ads full screen and I have to close it and open it again).
