Chess Openings Explorer Pro Reviews

Our favorite features of this app are being able to see the relative strength of moves will looking at an opening and being able to easily access and replay grandmaster games using openings and their variations. The Arkon app is also quite good, but it is annoying that it doesnt support landscape mode on an iPad.

This is a very good app to study openings and games. Glad we made the decision to buy it. We love that there are games played by the highest level of players from yesterday to today. Hopefully more games will be added in cause we defintely love having them all in one app. Thank you.

This inexpensive program is simple but effective! Enter an opening line and get a list of strong GM games that followed the line. See how strong GMs won, lost and drew starting from that position.

This app makes chess study convenient and efficient. Playing out the master games engenders chess appreciation.

We thought it is going to explain more better way above openings.

Everything about the app is good, but there should be an option to suggest an opening to be put into the app. We dont know if its missing any other opening, but it is missing the kloosterboer gambit.

Needs some instructions if a beginner or intermediate level player is to benefit. Confusing to this user. Not nearly as helpful as some conventional chess books of various openings. Would not recommend without major revisions.

No explantion backing the move s.

No idea what the percentages mean, at least a one paragraph instruction on how the app works would be nice.

We paid money for this but there is no built-in engine. So we paid and got the free version.

One of the best app on Openings we highly recommend it.

We have to admit that we are finding this app very useful in helping us learn chess openings. Makes learn fun by giving you the options and letting you explore!

We don’t understand this app at all and you don’t explain the way to use it. You have to put help.

For some reason when we go to Games with this position and choose any of the games, they are all games in the wrong position! This was working about a week ago, we think something went wrong in the last update. Again, thank you for your work on this app, and Im hoping you can address this bug fix soon happy to review again once fixed!

We like the app, but if Im doing opening prep for a game, why does it show there are 100+ games in the database then just stop showing the breakdown to the point where we cant move any pieces. We’ve resorted to using other apps for tournament prep.

Very cool opening explorer. Engine included and games for every position.
