Description

ChessNotePad is the best Chess recording and replay app ever!

Record games in PGN format as you and opponent play. Forget pen and pencil! Download or paste PGN games from the Internet and save them for later viewing.

Swipe the board left to right to see locators, right to left to disable.

RECORD

● The chess board adapts to your color.

● Two modes of play: Unguided and Guided.

● After one move optionally save and email games to you and your opponent.

● Once saved, the game can be replayed or the PGN text viewed.

● Select a piece, select a square, then tap "Accept" to move.

● Unlimited Undo!

● Game editor to bring "unguided" games into formal PGN compliance.

● Use ChessNotePad at tournaments or when playing with friends.

PGN

● Enter opponents in a Contacts subgroup you create, or from your Contacts.

● Text in new Contacts, or copy and paste from USCF or FIDE.

● Enter one time opponents in a text field—there is no need to save your opponents name.

● Create Locations, then select one for each game.

● Set NAG codes (!, ?, !!, ??, !?, ?!) on any move or later during review.

● Input and view all standard PGN tag fields.

IMPORT

● Download game files with ".pgn" suffixes (zipped .pgn files too).

● Supports cut and paste.

● Replay a game once saved.

● Database supports a large number of saved games.

REPLAY

● View the raw PGN, or replay the game using the board.

● Listed by White, Black, and Your Games.

● Study saved games—yours or downloaded games.

● See recorded NAG codes: !, ?, !!, ??, !?, ?! during replay.

● View embedded commentary ("{…}") and Recursive Annotated Variations (RAVs)

● Move forwards or backwards, view move number with Check indication.

RATINGS

● Enable Manual or Automatic Ratings mode.

● In Manual mode, you set ratings for yourself and opponents.

● In Automatic mode, you enter USCF and FIDE IDs, and the program updates the ratings on command.

● When either mode is enabled, the emailed PGN record includes a recomputed ratings value for both players.

HELP

● Extensive instructions available from opening view.

● Virtually all buttons and text entry fields have immediate help (tap "i").

● Full text descriptions on general play, guided and unguided modes, and replay.

● View online FAQ and other options when the network is available.

● Email tech support when you need help immediately.

OTHER

● Play (and record) games where you don't have room for a chess board like on airplanes and trains.

● Learning: provide to chess novices because ChessNotePad only allows legal moves.

What's New in Version 2.2.3

Fixed bug in copying data from the USCF and FIDE sites. They had both increased the number of fields in the entries.
Made the app compatible with 10.1

Great for recording games

:
The app is not intended to play but only record. Just what I was looking for. It is very easy to record a game and email it to yourself to analyze later. Wish it would have an option to record times for each move so you could see where you spent most of your time thinking. Wish it also gave winning lotto numbers too. I don't ask for much.
UPDATE: I emailed about some questions and suggestions and received very prompt response. I own several chess programs for iPhone and pc. This works GREAT with Chessbase and has already helped me improve my game. I am currently a C player. Won against three A players at the last chess club meeting.

Ask any Chess Master how to improve your game and one of the top suggestions is to study your own games. This makes that task MUCH easier. The app is not intended to play but only record.
