|Chess Studio App (Version 2)|
The book store soon appears on the screen. Chess Studio allows the operator to download Gambit chess books directly from the store. 30 are currently available and more will be added soon.
Once a book is loaded up, the moves of each game - including the notes - are fully clickable, with the moves on the left of the page matched by those on the board to the right (as shown in the screenshot below).
In comparison with version 1, Chess Studio 2 has an improved interface (very useful for smaller screens), a more modern look and feel and faster. Miscellaneous bugs have also been fixed, leading to a smoother user experience.
Frankly, whether we like it or not, E-books represent the future of publishing. Chess Studio makes the inevitable switch less painful, because it really is incredibly easy to install and any user can be reading a chess book within a couple of minutes. Reading books in this way makes it ideal for journeys. There is no chess board required and one can easily carry around a considerable library. An added bonus is that if one of your chess rivals unexpectedly gets on the same bus or train, they will not be able to see which chess book you are reading unless they sit next to you and peers directly at the screen.
It is not essential to purchase an E-book to test out Chess Studio 2. There are sample chapters available for free and everything can be deleted if the experience doesn't live up to expectations. Why not give it a try?
