Perfect for what I was looking for The biggest thing I love about this is the minimaliatic approach with the design. Simple and no distractions from learning new tactics.
Update: with the latest version I can only analyze 2 or 3 games daily unless I upgrade? A shame. I was wrong in my previous assessment, and it seems that this was, after all, just another money-making scheme...
Now features ads with sound This app was recenty "upgraded", not with new features, but with full-screen ads *with* sound. As a decidedly second rate tactics trainer, being ad free was *formerly* the biggest thing this app had going for it. No longer! Edit: Thanks for removing the ads. Small, silent ads are fine. You're entitled to some return for making a useful app. It's just the full screen ads with sound that were over the top.
Addictive but one simple problem Excellent app that is let down by a simple programming issue. When you are analysing a game, sometimes as you gently touch the screen when making a move it detects that as a swipe and moves back to another puzzle thus cancelling and losing where you have got to. It would be better to have distinctive buttons to move back to another puzzle rather than a 'swipe'. It sometimes stops analysing if you are analysing out a long game. If the first issue was cured it would be 5 star and worth upgrading.
Replies should be more intelligent Two important things missing are: 1) ...that this app does not report the ELO rating of each problem. On the other hand, if the developer thinks ELO ratings are "...distracting", then stop reporting the player's ELO. 2) ...that this app does not report the problem's ID number. The sequential number in the bottom right corner is NOT the problem's ID number. Who likes to communicate by means of FEN? 3rk2r/1bq1bppp/p2p4/1pn1p1Bn/3NPP2/P1NB1Q2/1PP3PP/1K1R1R2 w k - 0 15 BTW, the app inflates my rating > 2100.
Problems with analysis Scene 219, either way black Queen should take white Queen with either move by me or the app. What f**King lying POS system. Scene 357, it said my move was wrong but on analyze, it made the same f**King move. That is why I dropped rating 2 stars. I am not paying more money to receive the correct analysis. FRAUD is FRAUD!!!!!!! Sure show me how to recover the lost data, at your expense. Will be deleting app since analyze stopped working.
The Best Chess Tactics app ever! This is a well designed app for studying chess tactics. I do like the new feature, so that I can share the puzzles on my Facebook and the upgrade to Stockfish 7. Thank you developers for keeping this app free.
Really good! I like how it tracks and graphs your ELO rating, and how there can be several alternative moves that are equally rewarded.
Excellent assortment of positions. Stockfish 7 included for analysis. Gives you an ELO rating. 5 stars for this app.
Beaucoup de problèmes boguent. Certains sont faux. Et au bout d'un moment il faut payer (2.59 pas cher mais c'est le principe qui gène). Certaines positions ne permettent plus de progresser. La dernière me semble carrément fausse. Si Tf8+ comme proposé alors RxT et il n'est pas possible de gagner. Je ne sais pas comment envoyer la capture d'écran. Mais je l'ai dans mon téléphone.
Temporary stockfish It was nice while it lasted
It was good Do u mean I have to spend money to analyze with the chess engine? This is disgusting...
Screen sleep problem After two minutes of inactivity screen don't go to sleep, android marshmallow os
Difficult to select the piece when on the furthest left column if board is right up against the left side of the screen in either portrait or landscape mode. Fix that and I'll give it 5 stars.
Amazing app, featuring positions that you can find in real games and not some puzzle contest. Keep up the good work. Congrats.
Awesome problems! Great collection. And free!!. Would pay for something like this.
Works offline, no ads Best chess app out there, been looking for an app like this for a long time. 5 stars.
The fact that the game never really ends is unexpectedly awesome! The difficulty level of the puzzles varies based on progress, so it never feels too easy or too hard and it keeps you motivated to learn. There's potential for improvement of course (e.g. more stats, a slightly nicer UI with easier access to some features), but it's already outstanding.
An excellent app I have played around 3500 tactics so far. All are very good puzzles. Really love this.
Great App I am using many android chess tactics app paid as well as free. I like it most. Its as clear as written in its description
Great, but more puzzles would be great. Because I have had some of them repeat. And perhaps a way to know what percentage of available puzzles I have solved. The stockfish analysis is amazing.
Puzzles are ok but, will not give solution if you get it wrong. Takes away more points than it gives for getting correct solutions. This is to keep you occupied on their program.
The Mad Yank in Australia Love this app! Great when you don't have enough time to play a whole game but want to get in some constructive practice.
Inflated Elo I think the elo rating is inflated on here and your real number us probably a few hundred lower. There are much harder apps out there and they aren't as generous with their ratings
Wonderful application Guys, huge impression on me. Perfect app. for chess tactics.
Interesting I am only an amateur. And these tactics are helping me to progress.
Good tactics Best free chess tactics app out there
Decent A fine app with decent tactics and puzzles.
Excellent interface This is a fantastically designed tactics trainer. The interface is slick, with great aesthetic value, making it a joy to use. One of the nicest things about it is when you make a mistake, it provides you with your opponent's refutation. My only suggestions are to provide which game the tactic came from and to keep more stats, e.g., total correct, total incorrect, longest streak, etc.
This is a fantastic app. The analyse option gives me great insight into why certain moves are right or wrong and helps with deep understanding of each position. It's not clear how progress is calculated. Is it the number of tries, or if I asked for a hint that counts against me?
There are many mistakes in the puzzles that mde my king get checkmated easily
The best Thank you for this amazing chess training app
Not sure My biggest issue is that I don't know what the app is wanting me to do. I can't tell if I'm supposed to get a checkmate or stop one. There no direction. That being said it has several great puzzles, the interface is easy to use, and there a lot of info provided in each puzzle.
Some deficiencies to fix Messages / comments are very good. The problem is that I can not read them, as they are VERY short-lived.
