    This app shows me how dumb I am in the game of chess. It also gives me a chance to explore different combinations and tactics. Overall it is a fine chess program! I have used other programs that have better controls, they allow you to ask for hints, very subtle hints to allow you to check what might be the best move. This programs controls are a little less sophisticated.

    Manual of Chess Combinations is an excellent trainer for my chess level. The barrage of drills forces me to think outside of my comfort zone in order to find solutions to various tactics.

    I've been playing chess for a while... The amount of work done on this app is phenomenal. This is the best tactics training app...almost feels like a grandmaster is training you with all the crazy lines, but also subtle hints to help you proceed. This app is a work of art... Would rate it 6 out of 5.
