You can adjust Shredder’s playing strength from beginner to master level. If you like, Shredder automatically adjusts his strength to yours. He even calculates an Elo rating for you. This is how the playing strength of chess players is typically measured.

The developers must have updated the engine which is a good thing. It was susceptible to mating attacks involving extraordinary material or positional sacrifices. In my experience, the engine was vulnerable to this up to ELO 2100 settings. This gave me easy and short wins against levels 2000+. The weakness wasn't present in most desktop chessbase products (Hiarcs, Fritz etc.) so the change is quite welcome for this mobile app.

2021 and still the best tactics app. The computer program is legit too. Great app for serious players. Play with evaluation guage to find best move. See your .elo after each game based on play. Download computer app for in depth localized analysis. Can you get rid of continue button on app when doing tactics? Maybe different point system?

I'm a little bit disappointed about this app for two points: 1) When I resume the game with TIME CONTROL and I must to move, the time remains stuck! 2) It's not anymore possible to export pgn games (completed)previously loaded...it's possible ONLY when you finish the game at the moment when the game is over. (this is very bad thing). Sorry about my minuteness, but I'm a software developer and I make programs and "stress-test" every day. For the rest this app seems ok Keep going & best regards.
