This app has a very very strong chess engine. I pitted my chessmaster against 26 year Magnus, and after 5 games, Magnus is ahead 3-2. Game play itself is straight forward. I would really really like to to different boards and pieces. The black pieces just look like silohettes to me. Also, if I pay for a game, I should have to pay for tutorials. I would recommend price packages to reflect those as well
Purchased board and peices are not synchronised between the devices. Logging off, uninstalling the app and reinstalling the app is currently not fixing this problem. I suggest that the developers of this wonderful app fix this bug as soon as possible. I also suggest that strength of magnus at various ages should be mentioned in the app. Please try to include as many free learning videos inside the app with captions.
This is a very nice app however I have a problem about the magnometer. Why do we have to buy or spend money for it just to know if we're moving the pieces right. Why can't you make it for free. It will be helpful for us beginners if we're doing progress.
This chess game was great until I purchased the extra 77 levels/months to play Magnus. I never received it! I tried on my Ipad also because I was tired of getting stuck on the same level and needed more. This didn't work as well. I reported both purchase loses and got no feedback or offer for money back. There is nothing like getting ripped off to overshadow what was once good. Now everytime I play on the app I remember how I gave them my money without getting what I wanted in return and the game isn't as fun now. I hope they fix this or refund to their customers soon.
I understand the fact that winning against World Champ can be pretty much harder, but apart from the Tutorials and all Paid Lessons please add Analyse Game Option. Because it doesn't make any sense why we loose and where we made blunders against Carlsen. Adding the Analyse Game button will improve your app value
This app is infuriating because it has lost all my games and progress twice. A lot of potential with this app, but too many bugs for me to consider spending money for any of the extras. Maybe I'll try it again sometime in the future to see if the bugs are worked out. I was enjoying this app until it kept blasting away my progress. Too bad.
