Ultimate Chess Lessons by CWAMD
This is an interactive step by step lesson in chess. The manual allows you to move the pieces in each chapter. So the learning is an active exercise and not just a passive, receptive one.
In the future I’d like to see the graphics augmented to have a more 3-D appearance.
But even without that it’s 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Updating my skills by Hispeed12345
I started with reading the Ebook and eventually downloaded the chess lite app. The book was short and to the point. I’m hoping to learn some patterns...
Good teacher by Beep Beep Imma Sheep

Learn Chess by blaserjohn
Good App very highly recommended for those who know little to nothing about the game. I wanted to learn advanced strategies and it’s not good for that. But it’s good for a lot of basic information as well as some minor facts often forgotten.
Very helpful to learn some basic patterns. by Endnote
I downloaded this app to teach my son how to play chess. However I have also benefitted a lot from the app. It tells me some basic patterns that I never realized before. Highly recommended for novice players who want to learn the patterns.
Very good introduction by Bink_In_AK
This is a very good introduction to chess. I purchased the the other apps based on the quality of this app and I am not disappointed.
Exactly what I needed by L-Wall
Thank you! Tons of help!
I am a beginner... by Ednasgirl
My son is a chess master and has always wanted me to learn. I tried a few tutorials on line but couldn't grasp it all. When I got this app, I kept saying aloud, "Oh, I see!"
I'm 79 and now with this app, I can do this. Very complete instructions.

Nice little read! by iamphidias
Fantastic and quick read! by Mindsignals
This taught me more in an hour or two than I had ever previously known about chess, including various one-off rules. Very enjoyable and nice interactivity built into this ebook. I'm impressed!
Beginner by Inupiat
Great for a beginner,
Simply Brilliant by MaraLomen
Very concise and easy to follow. I highly recommend this for beginners, teachers of chess and advanced players for a refresher course. Nice job!
Great learning tool by angel otarola
I fully recommend this App. It covers all the basics of the game, from learning moving the pieces, nomenclature of the game, basic strategy, as well as notation. Give it a try.
Straight to the point! by Unitorami
Easy read and quick. Can finish it in 5-10 mins.
Great app by Finle
Tells how to play chess with special moves.
Nice. by 25judges
Quickly brush up on the basics.. And perhaps even learn a few new basic points to consider. Love it. Short, sweet and direct.
Excellent Teaching App by WebSiteCoordinator
Concise and easy to understand. Two minor quibbles: 1) Object of game is to checkmate opponent (not to capture a king). A king can never be captured because the game ends before the potential capture can be executed. 2) No algebraic notation example is given for en passant capture. For example if black moves d5, a white pawn on e5 captures the d5 pawn with d4 (a capture without an x in the notation). As a volunteer public school chess coach I am a stalwart fan of tChess Pro, a companion app by the same author, and I use it regularly.
Really great starter tool by atexasmatt
Love this quick and easy tool.
Excellent move! by Ceauxture
This app is very informative for the most novice of players. I enjoyed the simplicity of the rules and the hints of history.
Strong Chess App by kjoseph12401
Very accurate to ELO when playing PC v Human
Bad app👎🏼👎🏼 by Toby Tuck
You can't play CHESS!!!
Learn chess by And I'm a librarian!
Going in, I knew this: what the pieces were called, that they each moved differently, check meant "uh oh" and checkmate meant "game over." And that's about it! I don't feel like I could play a game yet, but I think if I read it a few more times, I could start against a beginner. Not all of it was easy to understand, but at least I have the vocabulary down now, so I know what to Google.
Very informative for no - little experience. by McClickers
Very informative for no - little experience.
Very Helpful! by jeremy1rose
This app provides excellent instruction for beginners and reviews basic strategy, brief history, and helpful hints for success. Also covers some of the more obscure rules. Great app. Thanks!
Great start! by 123nut456
Great way to begin!
Only one thing missing by eeao81
It was a good easy to learn and interactive app, the combination of graphic and theory just make it almost perfect. The only thing I notice is that it didn't go deep into the explanation of pawn promotion, for example once promoted how many pieces of the same kind can be used in the game.

Way to Learn Chess by Lapland4832
I had been looking for days for a chess app that would actually TEACH me, detail by detail, how to REALLY play chess. This e-book explained details, strategies, parts of the game in a very comprehensive way, and at the same time used some humor. It didn't just ASSUME that I knew the basics of chess, then it went on to mention Bobby Fisher's new 12 second rule.
I highly recommend this for beginners, but also for ppl who have played chess years ago, but are now somewhat rusty.
Good but basic by Cmtfsu
Good but very basic instructions. Good enough to understand the rules of game but not enough to really play.
I knew nothing of chess by 1SGFA
I learned a lot from this app. I will buy the pro version to help me learn the game. I recommend this app.
Excellent for beginner - intermediate by iDawg500

Fun and easy to work with by Resourceful7
For the novice like me it was of extreme ease and convenience of learning curve. I liked the way it is organized in pages that actually let you to manipulate the pieces and play around the field. I am considering buying the full version of this app at the moment.
