The idea is great but the depth should be increased. Moreover, description of the strategic ideas behind each opening is a good improvement to be considered.

Exactly what I am looking for, but database should be increased This gives you the opportunity to quickly go through the openings, you can search by name or diagtamatically get into the opening easily, covers all major openings and very handy interface, simply fast & neat. But the database should be bigger, also there should be some techniques to handle transpositions.it has got a quick saving option, unfortunately so far I have been taking screen shots. But as you emerge as a player it is insufficient, has to add more variation and depth. Then it would be the best.

Tremendous It's apparently the most interactive way to learn the openings. Love it.

Very good visual Very good illustrative openings shown. Would give 5 stars if it also talk about the basic rationale of each move. Still it did a good job giving a visual display of openings.

Lots of good work to compile it all in one app. That green-ish font and slightly bold characters are hard to distinguish... I can hardly read them.. Anything I can do?
