    Excellent app. There is a slight possibility for improvements and this will undoubtly be the best app on any platform. 1. Simple touch controls on the board for nevigation instead of buttons would have been better. Would be much useful for left handed people too. 2. While user is Guessing the move, in case of wrong move correct move and the best move from engines perspective would make it extremely useful. Also, the score of user's actual move compared to engine and the grandmaster would be awesome. Still the app stands second to none even if compared to paid apps.

    Don't download it. You have to solve mazes and labyrinths to make an engine play.
