Pros and cons of Chess app for iPhone and iPad

Chess app good for

Wonderful , for beginners it would have been even better if you could give a few rules,tips etc..
Free Chess! No ads, many style options. Two player and against the computer. Undo button. You need more?
Great game. Works perfectly on the ipad1. The levels of difficulty are appropriate for beginners to moderately skilled players.
A nice app for beginners. No frustrating death Matches within 10 moves from the Computer. Stronger Players may seek for other Chess engines.This one is rather defensive
Very Good. 7 years old could play immediately. Thanks to good hint function and it shows possible moves, so that even if he does not know all valid moves he can play.
None of the problems of a real board...And still the best brain game ever.

Some bad moments

One of the bugs is the fact the opponents castle and king swap places during the game. Sometimes illegal moves happen as well from either side of the gamer.
This is weak Chess engine app but its useful to beginner due to its playing style because it plays like human and does mistake as beginner.
Top easy and doesnt have an analayse mod dont insstall but acceppt of ches not bad :D
I can not play with black against ipad. Average level is very easy. No options at all. Scandalic price. This app is a joke for the money they ask!
When playing on the hardest level the game relies heavily on repeating the same move over and over making the game pointless. If u were to pull anything from it is that it tests your will and knowledge of when to just delete the app and find a better version.
