App Description

▻ Do you want to learn or improve at Chess?
▻ Do you want to master the most prestigious, the classiest game ever, while having fun?
It's EASY, and you can start right now!

How does it work? It's really simple: you just play! The coach shows you the moves a Grandmaster would pick. Not just one move, but the 4 best moves.

Sounds silly? Well think about it... How did you learn to talk when you were a child? Did you take grammar and spelling lessons? Of course not. You just went with the flow! Because that's the most effective way to learn!

CHESS LITE allows you to do just that, AND IT WORKS!

In two minutes from now you are going to start learning effortlessly. You start having fun immediately, and notice after just a few games that the right moves come to your mind naturally, as if they were obvious.

If it still sounds incredible, please read the reviews. CHESS LITE has one of the highest customer satisfaction of the App Store.

CHESS LITE is a simplified version of CHESS PRO, our full-featured chess app.
