      Flawed.

      This app is missing two crucial features. First, there should be a “setup position” option in case you want to analyze a game but dont have the FEN or PGN readily available. Second and more important, there should be an option to stop the analysis after a fixed time - the fact that I have to press go and stop after each move (to avoid arbitrarily long and unnecessary analysis, draining battery and CPU power) is very annoying. It seems logical and simple to have an option where the analysis stops after 10 seconds (or any given time) each move. This app would easily be five stars with those additions.

      It's good for what you pay for it

      Given that this is a free app, it is probably just a pet project on the part of the developer, so you can't really complain about it. There are definitely a lot of missing features (deleting moves and variations without opening textedit, creating arbitrary positions without a preexisting pgn file), plenty of quality of life improvements that could be introduced (theming the toolbar buttons to match dark system appearance, time-limited engine analysis), and some missing visual customization options and ui niceness, but you can't really fault the dev that much, since it is free.

      It's a great engine with a crappy front-end.

      Unlike the iPad version, you can't even play against it. Ugh. A minimalist UI isn't a problem in and of itself, but even the functionality that's here is super awkward. It doesn't even show you captured peices. I mean, could you have done even less to make this worthwhile? Probably, but sheese. I can download the engine and a number of other front-ends, but I was hoping for a one click install for a program that did the trick. This doesn't do any tricks except calculate well.

      Interface Bug

      I have an Windows. When you turn on the engine, the chess lines it generates appear in a window to the right. Of course, the lines change as the engine calculates, but the window also RESIZES slightly as the lines change. PLUS THE WHOLE BOARD RESIZES. So you have a very annoying board that constantly jerks around as the engine cranks out the changing lines. It makes the app unusable for engine analysis, unless you really like watching a board jerk around resizing constantly as you analyze.
