    Why would anyone go through the trouble of developing and app and provide zero instructions on how to use it? Sometimes I am befuddled by human nature.

    I really love this app. But have a problem plz solve it. I m bound to import database only from twic, chessok anspd pgn file. Which only provide the latest games. How can I import old classic games of legends like, Morghy, Tall, Lasker, Fisher etc. I have downloaded the games of these players but can't open and watch their games on scid. Plz help.
