Impression and review of people to iPhone App [Chess Studio]!

    by Chess blue 35 on 2021-04-18 at 12:58 PM

    Awesome,happy to see this app move forward,updates is absolutely GREAT! Their books are great,and customer service response is good too. “I’m a big fan of screen reader “I’m hoping that you will use a different format soon.( text readable screen function ) on iOS device's. This is the way of the future.

  • Great concept but limited app
    by mdphud on 2019-11-02 at 9:45 AM

    The board works great! Worth the investment in the books. However, I don't see a way of syncing progress or bookmarks between different devices. I also don't see how to highlight text. Finally, being able to copy pgn of games would be helpful for further analysis. But I suspect that is deliberate.

  • Solid, but could be better
    by AkitaRose on 2019-08-04 at 10:45 PM

    This is a solid app and I love playing through these books with the board in screen. Some suggestions: 1) A button to flip the orientation from white to black or vice-versa. This button could be placed in the empty space next to the copy position and computer analysis buttons. 2) listed algebraic notation of the last two moves below the board 3) there seems to be a scrolling issue where the book scrolls just a little more than expected Overall though, this is a great app and great way to study chess.

  • Great App
    by Burnelr on 2015-10-22 at 4:16 AM

    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 on 2014-11-15 at 8:30 PM

    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
    by Yaz42 on 2014-09-01 at 3:46 AM

    This is best by test.

  • Fantastic tool!
    by Ric2128 on 2013-11-29 at 7:30 AM

    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 on 2013-09-28 at 1:52 AM

    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.

  • Great App
    by tijean091262 on 2013-09-11 at 2:10 PM

    A classic app by Gambit and with the most recents John Nunn's books. I am loving it.
