Makes me think Improves my game Very helpful Craig                     Excellent samuelcraig
I like this app often play it as the last thing I do before going to sleep I ve played this app regularly for several years Overall I like it but there are several things really holding it back 1 Tactic ratings are highly inflated I m rated 2000 in the app but only around 1350 in real life 2 En passant captures are too easy to overlook when they are the first move of a tactic as in it is not obvious enough on the board that en passant is even an option It s frustrating to lose points on a puzzle over something dumb like that 3 Castling somehow is not an option at all 4 Lack of admin power and oversight There are several regular players who spam the comment boxes of tactics with extreme vulgarity hatred racism and somehow they are not banned These comments will eventually get deleted by admin but those players of course should be removed completely Recently Small Fish chess engine was integrated into the app so that you may see computer suggested moves after you have made your own attempt at the tactic This was a great addition really helps you explore alternative lines             Fun very useful but primitive Eeeegs
An excellent system for developing your chess skill But my gripe is when there are multiple solution to the tactic                     A tad annoying Chasecros
Very beatiful                     Very good Yahia fikry
Fun app I recommend it highly                     Great little time filler and gets you thinking about ChessTactics big browaer
Like being able to save interesting puzzles and the rating system is pretty accurate                     Great Chess App Edgar's iTune
This is a good app that makes it possible to enjoy chess in short blocks of time while I m also involved in other activities It probably improves my chess game too Highly recommended                     Highly Recommended steakbean
And it gets steady improvements                     Great app kzoorichie
Think Mario maker for chess tactics                     Surprisingly Good Only name they had lefttt2341
This is a great daily tool for exercising your chess brain I love that anyone can create and post a tactic and that the community policies the accuracy of the tactics I d give it a 5 star except for a glitch on the IPhone version which causes the app to reset sometimes when you switch to another app So if I m working on a puzzle and take a call or check my email the tactics app will sometimes clear the puzzle and take me back to its home screen Very annoying if I ve been working on a puzzle for a while and am getting close to a solution App could be improved if every tactic were numbered and the the navigation allowed you to jump to a number That would also solve the aforementioned glitch by letting one get back to the puzzle they were working on Having said all of that this is a great app and a really fun learning too I use it daily                 Love this app Wyoskies
I graciously gave five stars Do they deserve it Not really The reason is I love to do tactics The app could use a lot of improvements They know it but their to lazy They could make this the best So many talented people so much life wasted It s a shame                     Thinkahead DO THE MATH BOB
Simple free lots of tactics to solve                     Great Practice Opu2000
Love this app use it everyday                     Great haytr01
Have to have internet connection to play it I would love to play this during subway commute but no can do                     Great app with 1 flaw Solid reviewer
User fed tactics Great app                     Great app DislikerOf1337
This is a great app for learning chess tactics and it s fun to watch your rating go higher as you get better I only wish that there was an analysis mode that would use a machine to make the opponent respond with best moves for alternate lines ideas That would alleviate a lot of discussion in the comments section where players don t understand why their move wasn t the best possible choice                 SWEET Dj Gonzo Keys
Thanks guys Love this one                     I m learning Da_Birdman
Has all that you want to learn to do for chess tactics Like a puzzle game that doesn t take as long or as much thought as a game of chess                     Fun Gjacyn
I have played this app for several years Great pastime and practice                     Great chess app Calaristos
Awesome                     Great Jibaron
I FINALLY FOUND APP THAT DOESN T REQUIRE A PERSON TO PAY MONEY This app provides unlimited tactics                     Unlimited Tactics and Chess Lover s Dream BlitzKingCE
Stable easy to use Quickly go through many good puzzles its clever community of players add Good rating system brutal in the higher ranks My only gripe is that the board is occasionally flipped incorrectly because the board orientation is not automatically flipped based on the color that will make the next move              One of the best for iOS
The best free way to improve                 Download
Now it keeps giving me duplicate puzzles in a row and all are extremely easy Dont know what happened     Used to be good
Awesome                 Awesome
Good strategies entertaining              Good Games
Great app keep up the good work                 Chess tactics
Pretty cool                 Awesome
I like the app but i have a few problems with it 1st when i cant figure out a solution i will hit show solution right It does that but on number 4 the queen aligns itself with a pawn diagonally in which the pawn should be able to take the queen But it doesnt And just because the king is in check doesnt mean the pawn cant make that move The pawn can because it eliminates the queen and the king is no longer in check Know how to play chess Second when i loaded the app up for the first time i didnt know what i was supposed to be doing The rook moved so i moved to intercept the it but i was penalized for it Also the game should judge you on the level of creativity you used to finish the game not if you could guess the path the dev made Other than that it was a good app           Good app but
this app is a must have for any chess player student or master                 best chess app hands down
Great app I enjoy it often Please show the time of day at the top lighter board for outdoor play                 Chesser
Its my goto app whenever I find myself waiting on something              Love it
Great app Users upload tactics so it is endless                 Perfect
Its a great app with good bones that could use a few usability tweaks and a general spitandpolish to functionality              Solid app
Im 1300 USCF and feel as though Im improving through the app                 Great
For a free app that relies on users to provide content its moderated very well and is very useful This is the best tactics app Ive found for iPhone                 Great
Love this app and use it often I have learned a lot and enjoy the challenge                 Great app
Best tactics Ive seen                 Great learning tool
Very good game it have help me to play better and see opportunities to take advantage of my opponent                 Great gMe
Some of the tricks are amazingkeep you engrossed and takes good effort to solve them                 Addicting
Would be better if the creator of a tactic could erase it              Good App
Its not a perfect app as some of the tactics rely upon lessthanperfect opponent moves but its good tactical training in a pinch              Next best thing to CTArt
I bought this app to save and practics tactics but you can not back up the saved tactics files because it does not have file sharing option even more for each device you have to buy again the application Its just a fraud Dot buy waste of money     Fraud dont buy just fraud
Certainly its worth the couple of dollars but it would be worth way more if it was a tutorial Is what it is most tactics do not provide an explanation therefore u must read the comments Talk about juvenile unhelpful condescending tripe that is what u get there Its like walking into a middle school boys locker room complete with name calling comparisons to body parts Now I just try and learn on my own           Has Value
I like it a lot Has helped my game improve very much Thanks                 Really great app
Awesom                 Love it
Its a simple setup Just an endless supply of usergenerated tactics puzzles that especially if youre a beginner or intermediate player will help you think better the next time youre playing chess Its training but theres no trainer or anything like that The serious players can debate the finer points but for the rest of us you can see a big difference in your chess game for less than the cost of an energy drink                 Worth it
Hey the new board is the exact piece and board of my lichess set up                 Awesome
Great way to open up your mind to the endless facets of the game                 Mind opening
Easy to use easy to improve your game                 Great Chess App
A fivestar app turned one star because it now only gives me the easiest puzzles My rating is 1800 and the puzzles provided are 500 I dont even receive points for completing a puzzle A sad state of affairs                 Stopped working
Love this app use it all the time                 Awesome app
Came here just to write a review Great thanks                 Choice App
I enjoyed this app and the way they developed it was good for the user there is some technical things that a person has to know when submitting However overall to me it is a great app four stars              Good job
Has lots of puzzles and even keeps a rating for you Great free app                 Good program
Interesting problems with a good user interface As everyone and their uncle has mentioned it needs a better training element If you know chess well you can see what they are going for ie various kinds of mates and tactics and its good to practice tactics you know but its not a good way to learn new tactics              Good problems no explanation
Just recently after an update I think I started seeing a bunch of tactics rated at the 500 level as an 1800 Sometimes I would see the same tactic from the exact same user I know because I commented on one and it looped back around Please fix this bug     Problem with tactics
Teaching yourself to look beyond the obvious Stop and see beyond what is presented Look for the advantage Thoroughly look Observe Lifes Combination                 The Raising of Skill Level
An excellent app I use it during my commute daily                 Awesome
I spend a lot of time solving puzzles on this app                 This app is awesome
Good way to practice chess anytime of day I use it whenever I have a free moment                 Worth the download
Love this app                 Crowd sourced tactics
Part of my daily routine It helps me to look at the whole picture A little heavy on smothered mate but enough variety to keep it real                 Great app
Not consistent but very very good                 Not consistent but very very good
This is the most important app for improving your chess game                 Best tactics app
No complaints                 Great practice tool
Most used app on my phone by far                 Fantastic
Its super useful to learn chess and its a fun puzzler Only 4 star because the interface could look sleeker less baroque simpler and bigger              Good job on a very pleasant app
Its full of free tactics but theyre user created and therefore inconsistent Also most of the community seems to prefer calling people names over helping them           Free user created tactics
Clean simple rarely crashes                 Love it
