This week I've added the first King and Pawn endgame, which will be one of the pages I update (on a rotating weekly basis). For many this is very basic stuff, but it will continue to be built upon until we are looking at much complex endgames.
Apart from that... I've managed to catch up on many of the July solutions and I'm hoping to continue that trend this week.
As this blog/app grows I've decided to write a weekly update.
On the puzzle front, this week has seen the completion of June's solutions and the start of July's. I hope to be fully up-to-date with July's by tomorrow evening I check these carefully, but if you see a mistake let me know and I'll happily correct them.
There's also been the release of the first lesson - on the "Pawn Endgame Principles" page. I'll be adding more principles as well as endgame studies, opening lessons and middlegame studies. To help cater for every reader, these will range from the beginner to master level. The first lesson this week is definitely beginner.
Finally, I want to say thank you for your feedback. I have an average of 170 reading this blog each day, via the blog, which has been downloaded nearly 200 times now. This started as a basic blog, which someone suggested I released as an app and as long as 1 person reads I will continue to write, so thank you.
I'm Mike and this is my app! I know its a really simple app at the moment, which works off blogger, but I quite like it this way... a "daily chess puzzle". At the moment there's a nice page to view some live amateur games and shortly I'll be adding a "weekly lesson".
Other changes are that I'll be archiving monthly solutions and putting these on separate pages, so that you don't have to wait an age for the "solutions" page to load.
I'd really appreciate a few 5 star ratings, so if you get chance please press your menu button and rate this app.
Chess is my hobby and I hope you appreciate you daily chess puzzle.
