  • Great App

    By Burnelr
    Great app with a good selection of books. Needs at least an analysis board so I can examine variations not covered in the text. Even the weakest engine would be nice too. But still a nice app for reading on the plane or at lunch or anywhere you don't have access to a board.
  • This is what a chess book should be...awesome!!!

    By Bjkaria
    This is perfect when you cannot use a chess board to play over the position. Works perfectly for me while commuting on the train. Thank you Mr. Nunn!
  • Greatest chess learning app ever

    This is best by test.
  • Fantastic tool!

    This app is amazing. It makes chess study more dynamic. I just got the book on Kasparov and going through one of his games took me half the time on this app. Moving back and forth between your book and the board takes more time than you may think. Also, with this app you can speed through an analysis and judge weather is worth spending time on it or if it's better to move on with the main text. If you study chess and you are not an expert who can fly through chess books, this app will help you quite a bit. I cannot wait for Gambit to make more titles available (it would be amazing if they could include FCO as one of the titles for this app).
  • Excellent Customer support

    By JamesCoons
    There were retina graphics problems in version 1.0. I reported them to the publisher. And they were immediately fixed as a result. So the customer service seems to be excellent. The app now works very well. The control seems a little sluggish which is why I am only giving it 4 stars. The material however is excellent.
