    Yes, it's sad. I really wanted this app to work. Starting with the basic tactics puzzles, it will let me bring up a puzzle, and work it, but then completely locks up. I have to then stop the program and reopen it to go on to the next puzzle. Developers: I'm on a Galaxy note 9, with updated Android 9.

  2. guest-avatar

    apk This app does not work properly. It's a shame because it's supposed to do a lot. I purchased the Pro version a few years ago and it didn't work right then and it doesn't work well now.

  3. guest-avatar

    mod apk The paid version of the game will not open on my Huawei Mate 20 Pro (although the demo version works). I really hope you will fix this and other run problems with the app, because the app is outstanding excellent when it works!

  4. guest-avatar

    pro apk Crashed on startup after the latest update. Iam on Android 6.0. Deleted all app data and was able to start the app. This app has become a must have. I hope the author continues to maintain and enhance it.

    An amazing all-in-one chess app. It's taken me a while to find all the cool stuff in it (that's my fault, not the app's), but if you love chess you should have it. (April 10, 2019) The app 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.

    Great for learning chess, HORRIBLE interface. Needs orientation settings; in "portrait only", text is hard to read. In "auto-detect", landscape works great but when my phone moves slightly it exits to the main menu. EDIT: crashes now when opened. clearing app data fixes the issue, but seriously...

  24. guest-avatar

    Updated Version 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 new bug... train blunders - click for variation doesn't work anymore..... it was used to be good now bugs....

  25. guest-avatar

    This is crashing every time I start it. I want my money back. I have sent several crash reports from my SM-P580 galaxy. They have all gone unanswered.

  26. guest-avatar

    Application is superb. One feedback is that more new content should be added especially for endgame and middle game. Also add features to play a game against stickfish engine and then to analyse it.

  27. guest-avatar

    stopped working, just crashes. ive tried deleting and reinstalling but it still doesnt work.

    After abandoning this application for a long time because of crashes, I decided to give it a try 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.

  33. guest-avatar

    Though there are many other areas 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 mate 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 tactics and it is aggravating to be counted wrong when right.

    The app has potential but it crashes every time I put the phone down for a moment. Very annoying.

  41. guest-avatar

    Helpful and worthy as far as mobile concerned.

  42. guest-avatar

    I see many woes concerning the tactics section; mine is that I can't open any tactics problem AT ALL.

  43. guest-avatar

    Very good

  44. guest-avatar

    I love the app. I'm just wondering if it is possible for me to make 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.

  45. guest-avatar

    Whatchu Say boi


    Can't play against the engine,like when you viewing a game on pgn viewer and want to play position vs engine, it won't work.

  46. guest-avatar

    It often crash on some of the games of Tal. Please fix the problem.

  47. guest-avatar

    Why no play player to player?

  48. guest-avatar

    Very nice program. Facing one problem 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.

  49. guest-avatar

    I really like this app. The update does not let me open pgn through the browsing folder. Author quickly responded and fixed pgn problem. Keep up the great work!

  50. guest-avatar

    Despite the fact that there are often major bugs after updates (which are ironed out) this is a very good way of training opening on the go.

    One of the best applications for chess training out there. The only thing I wish for is the ability to have a "cumulative" score in centi pawns when playing in "Guess the next move" mode. This way you can compare your total performance against a grandmaster and may be occasionally "win" against him (meaning that your total accumulated score in centi pawns is positive). P.S. Changing my score to 5 stars in the anticipation :).

  55. guest-avatar

    Good chess app. A favorite, but opening trainer is not as good as it once was. Can't choose variations anymore, but I'm getting used to it.

  56. guest-avatar

    Hands down the best chess training app out there! And I've tried many. Has it all. Puzzles tactics lessons massive library of games. And free!!

  57. guest-avatar

    I LOVE Perfect Chess Trainer, Thank you for updating to stockfish 7.

  58. guest-avatar

    I use this to analyze my games. I really enjoy reviewing mistakes and blunders, and then trying to get the correct move. This is a must for any chess enthusiast.

  59. guest-avatar

    Good, but not working on Marshmellow.

  60. guest-avatar

    Updating review because it doesn't work with android 5. An option to choose a different engine would probably fix this, because it's the stockfish engine that doesn't start..!!!! Lots of features for training, Although it would be good if the tactics training were graded. That way you would have an overview of whether you were improving, Something like the app Tactics trainer, that gives an elo rating for each problem

  61. guest-avatar

    Best chess app ever. No joke. Seems last update made the opening training stop asking for variation choice. Even noticed a setting that seemed to turn it on, but when flipped on still doesn't ask to switch variation. Can we fix this?

  62. guest-avatar

    This is a fantastic chess training tool!

    Hey thanks for this app. I've definitely been improving my Chess but I also just have fun doing Chess Puzzles on the Subway when I don't have access to correspondence servers. Quick request since I see you answer those. Could you enable posting of positions from clipboard? I use Wikipedia to read up on openings and sometimes they have notated games but posting directly into the app isn't working for me and I have to switch to Droidfish. Great app and I can see from the comments that its always improving. update Dec 2015: Hi Michael, Still love this app and think it's one of the best Android Chess apps. I recommend to anyone who asks. I was wondering if there is a way I'm not seeing to load the DLC lessons in the Tactics Trainer. I wanted to be able to use the e4 and d4 trap lessons as an interactive quiz instead of reading it. Also do I get cross-platform with my Android license? Was thinking of downloading the Windows version and wondered if I need to pay twice and whether there is a way for the DLC to transfer over. ' Thank you for the great app!

  64. guest-avatar

    The Perfect Chess Trainer, this app is absolutely awesome. It doesn't work with the new Marshmallow update though. My phone updated today and I can't get the app to start. It crashes as soon as it starts. Can you please look into this? --------------- Updated on December 15, 2016 It has been a few months and I haven't heard from you. Can you please look into this and let me know why did the app start crashing? As of today the app is still crashing when started.

    I bought this app to practice my opening repertoire. It worked well in the beginning but ever since I've updated it the button that was supposed to send you to the junction of variations is always sending me at the beginning of the opening. I've installed all the updates after and I have the same problem. I wish I could have the first app when it came out. I don't know how to down grade. If that option would work I would give it a 5 star..

  67. guest-avatar

    Excellent app but when replaying .pgn's it would be a lot more useful to have a forward and back button to go through at your own pace instead of a restart button and autoplay.

  68. guest-avatar

    Without the engine analysis (that used to be in the app but now gone) it's just the same that's out there. Don't buy it!

  69. guest-avatar

    This is the most complete all around chess app for android. It covers every aspect from learning to mastering chess.

  70. guest-avatar

    This seems like a very capable program but there is no instruction manual. Users must try to figure out how things work via trial and error. In the description for the program it says that it is possible to create user pgns but there doesn't seem to be anywhere in the program to do this. I looked on the website but there are no instructions there either. I would consider upgrading this review if instructions or some way to get them is made available.

  71. guest-avatar

    This is one of the best chess training apps in the play store. Great for training endgames and playing positions out against the computer. Only two things could improve it: first, if the author adds back in engine analysis during position training (I wonder why it was removed), and second if the engine would cycle through equally scored moves, so it doesn't play the same defense every time.

    Copy to clipboard not working, pgn files does not have result, plz update

  73. guest-avatar

    Cant use my own positions from chessbase. Only full games.

  74. guest-avatar

    Nice work

  75. guest-avatar

    It is a fantastic application for those who are willing to learn chess.

  76. guest-avatar

    Especially now that it runs on lollipop!

  77. guest-avatar

    Quite entertaining!

  78. guest-avatar

    Unable to use it, even after trying several engines it won't load any of them. This is strange as Stockfish engine works fine with Analyse This Chess App.

  79. guest-avatar

    The biggest being that the developer doesn't respond to emails.

    A nice app, I would like to know how to add pgn files to this application. If that is possible, then it will be very good indeed.

  81. guest-avatar

    I am so to get such a wonderful program so cheaply. from my experience chess has such an expensive hobby to have.

  86. guest-avatar

    How do i add my own repetoire to the openongs training? I can create pgns on my desktop pc but the files in chess trainer appear tp be pcdb? Can i save stuff from fritz to pcdb format? Merci pour votre reponse ;)

  87. guest-avatar

    I'd like to see more openings. Also, the ones that go on for 20 moves are fun to follow, but I think games are unlikely to occur exactly like that. Also, I think you have variations built into some openings and the user isn't made aware of them... for example, 7. Nc3 in the Giuoco Piano as opposed to Bd2

  88. guest-avatar

    Really love the training and study tutorials but feel that they need to include in depth explanations of why certain moves are more powerful or detrimental to my game. For example, in training positions there should be written dialogue that goes along with each challenge Please make some improvements on that and this app will be worthy of 5 stars

    Now I'm no pro, mind you, but this little app here seems to have just about anything you could ask for in a chess learnin app, plus a lot of other stuff that I can't figure out what it is yet. I'm generally gonna be suspicious of something that calls itself "perfect" but I can't say I have any material objections in this particular case. I would add that anyone who rates this less than 5 stars needs to seriously ask themselves: what would be a five-star app? One that slept with you and then made you breakfast in bed while it wired $3000 straight into your checking account? Yeah, Kandy Krush Saga is actually in the next aisle. You're welcome. Have a nice day.

  90. guest-avatar

    Zero complaints and all the features incorporated are more than enough to improve quickly and steadily.

  91. guest-avatar

    I like the app, and the few annotated games included are useful to learn, but there really are just a few. For someone relatively new to chess (like me!) the annotations are the most useful feature. I would really like to see some theory behind the openings, the app shows me the moves involved in queens gambit, but not WHY they are good or the basic ideas behind various openings.

  92. guest-avatar

    August Brender III


    Can't say enough, excellent tool to improve your game.

  93. guest-avatar

    Maybe app isn't perfect (so far) but developer is working hard so so if You don't like something or something is missing feel free to contact him, he's very cooperative. Make suggestions for how can this app be better. Best regards to developer.

    David J Kanwisher


    It's pretty great,but I can't seem to let the computer think for MY turn in the menu. What if I'm stuck on a position and I want the engine to ponder my best move for only one turn, can I do this? Never mind it looks like the white flag does this?

  95. guest-avatar

    just crashes

  96. guest-avatar

    Great chess training app.

  97. guest-avatar

    Why I only have 5 annotated games instead of 50

    Great app doesn't disappoint

  99. guest-avatar

    Hi, love this app. Just purchased the full version, was disappointed to only see a couple of variations to the Sicilian. Also, would like to be able to control both sides of the board at all times, (within the opening trainer) that way I can make moves my opponents often throw at me and see what moves the computer suggests. Thanks. update: actually I just downloaded analyze this and it achieves what I wanted.
