Great content - the app allows to follow the most prominent chess tournaments from all over the world. The implementation is sloppy though. There are bugs and quirky behaviours. For example I can't turn the sound off for notifications for some reason. All the boxes are unticked under Settings / Notification Sounds, yet the sounds are still there. Or another annoyance. You can only see either DRAWN games, or games from the LAST ROUND (even decisive ones) in the free version. This by itself is fine. BUT the logic is completely inconsistent, because you can't access decisive games from the last round through a player profile nor the "All Games" view - they're marked as "PRO" and unaccessible there... even though the very same games are still accessible through the "round" view! The design isn't perfect either, eg. on the "Standings" list you only get to see points, but not the win-draw-loss stats. On the plus side, the app no longer crashes, unlike in the past when it would happen pretty often.

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).

App is great but not intuitive especially with the Olympiad. Searching for player by name in a given Rd takes too long to bring up the board when the player is on the bottom boards. Do away with the auto scrolling animation while searching and just bring up the search result. Tap on country name in the standing not showing the players. It is blank. Searching the country standing by player name omits round 1 even when the player played rd.1. Several issues to highlight but space limited to 500.
