Downloaded this application with the sole purpose of using the megabase included. Was able to download megabase but there doesn't appear to be an obvious method to begin it. tapping the database after it finally extracted, I am endlessly stuck on a screen that says : "Create database index: 0%" and never seems to create any progress after about an hour of waiting. Attempted to test to search some help via the application itself and on the www service but none provided. The "Help" file gave 0 instructions for using the megabase. Could easily be user error, but I wasn't able to figure it out on my own and there really aren't any instructions; therefore giving up and looking for another app. I guess I shouldn't have expected much for only 5 bucks.
This application is amazing in the specific domain for which it was intended. That is, as a chess database repertoire. You can't play vs the engine that comes with it. The nice thing with this application is that it can replay an entire game, and finds nice winning moves and auto-annotates. While this feature can be done with other apps (find winning moves in a position), but then you will have to one-by-one allow the engine search it per position.. whereas in this application it replays the entire android game and finds the lines for you. I will rank this application 5 stars if: 1) It accepts other engines (I have komodo9) 2) I can edit the time allocation for move analyses. Currently it is max to 3000ms. I like to edit, say 10 seconds to have deep results. The application has greate file management system.
This application can now virtually replace Chessbase!!! I use this application to prepare extensively annotated opening files, as well as customised opening books - both essential for a Correspondence and Over The Board player like myself. Android device chess engines are powerful enough to blunder check analysis (this comes with Stockfish 6 at the time of writing, but you can add your preferred engine). There's no substitute for doing you own preparation and this application gives you the tools. Very helpful developer too! Outstanding.
I have a Nexus 7, and for some reason I am unable to download the huge database. It also will not do opening book builds or database calibration. Is this a common problem? All this is to me right now is a list of games. I'm not getting errors. It just says its performing the task...and never gets above 0%.
UPDATE: I'm giving it 5 stars since talking with the developer. We figured out that on my TMOBILE MyTouch 4G by LG, the application operates in both landscape mode or portrait mode. The buttons are much better for navigation in portrait mode. Thanks. ORIGINAL REVIEW: ( Long keep android games to begin them. ) The navigation thru 4000+ android game database could be improved. The buttons overlap on my droid screen, but I have just enough room to create it work.
An awesome all-in-one chess app. It's taken me a while to search all the cool items in it (that's my fault, not the app's), but if you love chess you should have it. (April 10, 2019) The application is now crashing constantly (it won't startup) since I installed the January 2019 update. I've had to uninstall it from my phone. Please fix this.
Amazing for learning chess, HORRIBLE interface. Needs orientation settings; in "portrait only", text is hard to read. In "auto-detect", landscape works amazing but when my phone moves slightly it exits to the main menu. EDIT: crashes now when opened. clearing application data fixes the issue, but seriously...
Updated Ver Guess the Move section. I tried it but after move 8 it stops all the time. Impossible to use now Guess the move...Please fix the fresh bug... train blunders - click for variation doesn't work anymore..... it was used to be amazing now bugs....
One of the best pgn application After abandoning this app for a long time because of crashes, I decided to give it a test again. Very impressed with the stability now. Would like to see the points option in Guess the move back again instead of showing the percentage score. I really prefer to have the 3,2,1 back.
Though there are a lot of other locations I have yet to explore, there are positions where alternate mating (or winning series of moves of the same length) are counted as wrong. For example, from Fred Reinfeld's classic "1001 Brilliant Ways to Checkmate" is the following position: r3k2r/ppp2ppp/8/3pn3/3Pn3/P1PK1B2/2PB1qPP/R2Q3R w kq - 1 2 Note that Black can friend White with either 1...Nc5+ followed by 2...Ne5# or switching the order of moves with 1...Ne5+ followed by 2...Nc5#. The program counts the second option as incorrect. This is a defect I have found in other positions, too. The programmer needs to either program in viable alternate sequences or eliminate positions with more than one solution. I bought this mostly to stay sharp with strategies and it is aggravating to be counted wrong when right.
If it only worked, it would be GREAT, except for not being able to play a android game from begin to finish. But OMG! ALL the complaints on what this can't do when it says it can, are a nightmare. I just @#$%ed out 15 bucks for nothing! I see a lot of woes concerning the strategies section; mine is that I can't begin any strategies issue AT ALL.
Amazing application I love the app. I'm just wondering if it is possible for me to create a customised opening repertoire to study within the opening database and to train it too. I know I can import individual PGNs but I'm looking to build and train a repertoire.
Very nice program. Facing one issue in Opening Training. If I am working with an opening line (using pgn-file with junction-nodes on both sides) as white , all the black variations are allowed in the training. But, if there is a variation of white - it is not allowed ?! I hope it can be fixed very easily. One more thing, during opening training junction points of variation lines should be shown (as a choice, like in pgn viewer) for both black and white side.
Worst App, I purchased this software. initially good. afterwards i am unable to see history ( which screen goes blank). and i am unable to select and view particular openings. when selecting it goes top and.worst app, Got modernize yesterday. Same continues. i am using lenovo a7-30 gc Tablet. I am regret now!!!!
This app is very good, I like it. I have pro ver - no ads, yeah. Still (even after updates) there is a bug in idea of grabbing piece and leave it. I mean that after latest modernize you see your mistakes, that is what I was hoping for, but .. if you grab wrong piece, but before any move you realize that it is not that one, there is no opportunity to leave the wrong one and taking various one without having error counter increased. It was also before this update. Hope for fix. Thanks.
Can you add A.I fighting with human? I thought there is more like lichess. Computer level 1 - 10. Hoping for that and I will give it 5 stars. Also can you bring more analyzed games? Such as comments about this android game and being analyzed and presenting the best move course? Lastly, graphics sucks... maybe animation from lichess? Its like we are from a 1970's android game production lol anyways amazing android game but still need improvement
No other application has helped me improve my chess as much as this one. I love the focused locations of training and the incremental levels of complexity. Training on very specific concepts is what I had been missing from other apps. I would pay much more and it would be well worth it.
Amazing app!! Definitely worth paying the $4.99 upgrade. This application is set up so you can do around 15 exercises in a min or two. 10-20 mins a day with this application and your tactical abilities will vastly improve. You can also " favorite" the exercises you like if you search them more beneficial then others.
I kinda like this application it shows you ways of checkmating and gives you hundreds of exercises but there's a android game in simple level on the fork play in position 61 that makes no sense how can that be a fork the king isn't even in check when the knight moves close to the king. That's not a fork in my view the knight clearly doesn't force a check on the king so that the rook can take the pawn. The android games before position 61 are forks not position 61 please modernize or I would change review to a 0 star.
Unbelievable app. I loved it. Just a request; could you please add a redo option to each item of challenge section? I am asking this so that we can go back to the challenge that we have already solved or solved with the support of tips and review the steps that went on to solve the challenge or just to hone up the skill. It's missing in your current release. What is solved cannot be reviewed. Please add this option in your next release otherwise this is the best application to improve your chess skill.
Most of the application is really amazing for beginners and those who need a starting point to develop strategies and obtain used to spotting reoccurring themes. BUT. BUT. a major bug ruins the most useful part oft his app: the challenge mode. This part serves the plaxer with a issue without hinting at the strategy one needs to claim the advantage and is the closest to actual android game practice. But it keeps canceling my request to progress to the next puzzle after just ~150/900 have been solved. Please fix.
Amazing but can be perfected in future. Suggest to contain and explain concept/examples for each tactical and strategical themes before going to the exercise. Also to clearly separate tactical and strategic themes. Chess android game included are amazing but not fit the objective of chess coach pro ( read about). Summary, separate into opening, middle android game and endgame themes with focusing in positions (tactical and strategical).
❤️ Is it possible to have your stats synced to the acc unless intentionally reset? I have lost all progress on three occasions due to phone mishaps, and I don't play as much, anymore. I would be ecstatic if that was an update... Thank you!!
These are perfect training exercises for me when I play competitors at the main library in downtown Cincinnati😉😀 8May getting better and netter😉 June 5th I'm gettong better and better at seeing the entire board. Also I'm starting to see more than 2 moves ahead. Thanks for your help😎💪... 29 June 2019 checkmate in 4 moves has been a barrier for decades. Hoping that chess coach can support me break through. You guys are the best Thanks😎👍💪
