The beginner

Don't feel that you have to set out all your pieces. Start with the pawns, then add the pieces. Understand how a pair of bishops can dominate the board, or the rooks can take paws in the endgame, and why the queen and knight can work together so well.

Once you know the basics, use online resources to play and help analyse games. Find human opponents too. If you become really serious, join a chess club in your area.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
