Shredder Chess now 3.99

http://itunes.apple.com/app/shredder-chess/id308032437?mt=8

Shredder, the most successful chess program ever, is now also available for the iPhone. You can play against Shredder, analyze with him and solve chess puzzles. It offers the usual Shredder standard for your pocket.

In addition to the outstanding playing strength of the 12 times computer chess world champion, Shredder is also able to mimic the play of a human chess player with any playing strength. He even deliberately makes typical human mistakes in those levels.

Solve 1000 built in chess puzzles. Shredder keeps track of your performance and offers advice if needed.

You can adjust Shredder’s playing strength from beginner to master level. If you like, Shredder automatically adjusts his strength to yours. He even calculates an Elo rating for you. This is how the playing strength of chess players is typically measured.

During the game a coach is watching your moves and warns you if you are about to make a mistake.

See how you are getting better and better the more games you play and the more chess puzzles you solve.

I was SERIOUSLY just looking at this yesterday. SERIOUSLY. I am trying to get my kids into chess. What. Weird. Timing. Of course this is probable not for the iPad version, which would be just my luck.

Dev question:

Is there any plan to support FICS in a later update to Shredder Chess?

Great deal! This is certainly among the best chess apps around; many serious chess enthusiasts even say it is the best. I certainly do enjoy the chess puzzles it has, love the auto-adjusting AI (great for improving your Elo) and the engine is extremely powerful.

Seriously, get both. These prices are just silly and the least any chess fan can do in return is support the devs. I paid several times the combined price of both apps just for Chess Tiger back in the day on the Palm and I never regretted the purchase once. I promise anyone interested in chess that they won't regret getting the latest version for a buck!

I finally caved and bought Shredder. This app is just too good to pass up at this price.

Didn't even know about Tiger Chess, (or simply "CHESS" as it appears on the app store). Looks good though; I just picked it up, thanks for the suggestion.
