  • Terrible Customer Service

    By Ttcorkum
    I would most likely rate this as a 4 or 5 star app except that you cannot get any help from Everyman. I have written 4 times by way of their website as once directly to their support address. No response to any questions. As it is I feel that a 2 star rating is being generous.
  • Needs improvement

    By Nitelance
    A couple simple things: -There aren’t enough choices for customizing the board (and none for customizing the pieces). I personally don’t like any of the choices available. -In the _Move By Move_ books that have questions and answers, it would be much better to have the answers hidden by a fold in the page until we choose to reveal them. Otherwise, the app functions fine and I love having the e-books available for download.
  • Poor design that needs updates

    By Wad-medani
    A large selection of ok books in a poor app design. In dire need of serious updates. Board display takes most of the screen and pale blue font for the text!
  • The best chess book app

    By Kman1759
    I've tried many of the various chess book apps, and this is the one that I utilize the most.
  • Fix, please.

    By chessguyRVA
    First, the latest update has a bug. Doesn't pop-up the variations when scrolling through a game. The game just becomes "stuck" on a move with more than 1 move and won't scroll forward. No, I didn't have the "ignore variations" option turned on in the settings. Second, I really dislike the additional white space added to the left and right of the board. Visually savvy developers (Stockfish, Shredder, maximize screen size because we are, after all, looking at this thing on our phones (tablets, too). My iPhone screen already comes with black borders because the screen isn't flush the edge of the phone. Additionally, I have a protective case on the phone - more borders. I don't need a reduced chessboard suspended in the middle of unnecessary white space. The last app version didn't have the border and it seems an amateur graphic designer has come along and ruined a good thing by attempting to fix what wasn't broken. Please change it back.
  • Awesome!

    First, I'd like say this app deserves five stars in my opinion! I'm enjoying ,bookmark,holds the last position view. Book selection is good on,Openings, Middle game and endgame study. Hope see a area with opening index in their books,and page number of the start of a game. This chess app works great on my split screen iPad Pro.
  • Crash prone

    By Docslaughter
    Crashes every time I open the app.
  • Crashing fix...

    By RyanTCloud
    I was having the book store crashing problems too. But that changed when I tapped the settings option and clicked "restore" before the book store crashed. Now the app works great!!!
  • Issues

    By TheCalcManiac
    The app wont allow the board to have coordinates Also sometimes it wont stay put (it blinks on start and vanishes) then we have to reinstall but we lose all the pgn we have uploaded Both issues are a true Pain
  • Great app for the contemporary minded.

    By There're son
    This app is a great alternative for those chess players who would rather have the moves played while reading. Turning the printed page is exhaustive with an actual chess board and pieces. Thanks to those who are making a technological shift as it relates to books and chess.
