Software Reviews and Criticism

    What’s the reasoning?

    I am a longtime beginner. I have read books by Bobby Fischer on the approach to chess from a beginners perspective, which assigned the numerical values to the pieces. Pawn being lowest & Queen the highest. His attack strategy was capturing higher value pieces while sacrificing lower value pieces with the ultimate goal of placing a king in check that he cannot escape from ( checkmate). These exercises do little to teach one chess strategies because they do not explain these strategies. They simply tell you that it’s your move and what they want you to aaccomplish. So you make a wrong move say in the strategy of playing for advantage; all of these arrows appear( supposedly to guide your movement) but when you follow the arrows you are told that is an erroneous move! What’s the reasoning with the arrows then? It’s very confusing and frustrating. So then you guess, but invariably are wrong with your guess. Finally it shows the move you should have made, but there is no reason or explanation given other than the history of that particular maneuver in a match at some time in the history of match play! It might be elegant but you don’t ever understand how it came about? Maybe you should quit with the arrows and guide better!

    Great learning tool, excellent support

    I have four chess courses purchased in this app. The are all of high quality. Some courses are exercises only, others have preparatory explanatory screens. All permit the user to continue playing against a chess engine at any intermediate or final position to check his own ideas. A demo version of each course is available for download before purchase. Email messages to the developers are generally answered overnight and are most helpful. The courses themselves are inexpensive and are well worth the cost; they are reworkings of the Convekta and Peshawar courses at a lower cost!

    Great App

    I love this app! I have a few suggestions though. It would be nice if there's an option to remove the cross when moving a piece. Also, when in iBook mode, I can't flip the board, add my own moves, or set board/piece preferences like in Peshka or Aquarium. Another good addition would be better sound effects for piece moves and captures. Finally, it would be nice if you could add custom boards and pieces like you can do in Peshka. Thank you. Edit: There is a big problem when you change to pieces other than Merida and Internet. If you change the piece set to "Aquarium" for example, the app completely crashes and it continues to crash on launch. Is it possible to fix this crash issue? Thank you.

    It got to be the best for amateurs

    Very easy to learn. Instructive and challenging. Hint arrows after errors are helpful. Simulations are enjoyable. Problems to solve are grouped by categories but can easily be switched to random to make solving each position more challenging. This software has been very helpful to me in strengthening my tactics skills.

    I am learning

    I am learning to look at all situtations. I am still having a bit of trouble seeing the landscape with all of those moving trees but the experience is over the top. I am learning as I go and I am an old person. This is one of the best experiences, expecially when I get one of those " oh yea" moments. Thanks, I still don't know when to give up pieces to gain advantage, other tricks as well. This is not and over night learning - it is a way of looking at the situtation -- I feel really dumb sometime - thanks for this experience
