Couldn't even open the png file The program look for file on SD card by default. Could not find them and ask for pro version. Not sure if I am willing to pay when couldn't even try out

Nice for viewing pgn games and files. This app is simple to use in reviewing pgn games and files. Hope that improvements will be made. I enjoy using it to review my games. The only file that finds pgn games in is my download file. Wished it could find my pgn file.

One of the best I give it a 5 for unlimited pgn chess games view for free version. The instructions to use the app is confusing thou.

Donato Rivera

Good but... I have not been able to flip the board to change colors (Black or White on top). Why not use the usual symbol (circling arrow)? Also, needs to allow reverse sorting or to place more recent games on top. On long lists one needs to scroll down to the bottom to view most recent games.

William Johnson

Unlimited pgn files?? Really? You then tell me to get chess pgn pro?

A Google User

Best one Its is very useful for me

A Google User

Very nice for a free app Considering that it is just for free... you just need to put your pgn file on your main memory, mot in a folder for it to be recognize... if you know how to follow instructions it will work...

A Google User

Substandard lowsy Not even beta quality PGN must be in SD root folder Moves do not display properly This is on a Nook tabley

Nii Noi Nortey

Useless Can't even locate any pgn file. Asking me to buy app

Steven de Koekkoek

Not useful Can't see pgn file as you go, can't open folders on my phone, and doesn't show chess engine analysis. User interface is slow and unresponsive Uninstall and get chess pgn viewer instead.

Nick Chebykin

Andrei Zavada

0* DISAS-STAR I'll UPDATE THIS DAILY UNTIL I GET A RESPONSE!! This app cannot read device to find pgn files as advertised. It does nothing when you press refresh! - see pic attached. How does it work? How do you open to go to the chess board? The only thing that works is the link that takes you to the pro version! Does that work? I actually uninstalled this app some time ago and forgot it didn't work! SENT EMAILS NO RESPONSE!!!

John Hazlett

No file command Not everyone keeps there files loose in the directory. Like me, they like to organize things in file folders.
