The idea of these apps / services is good, the performance is lousy.
Since hours the server for the opening database does not respond, cannot load my opening tree, and there is not even a proper error message.
The tactics trainer repeatedly looses connection and needs restart.

These new offerings very much prompted me to buy, yearly, into a quality and quantity of professionalism that will undoubtedly provide tons of hours of excitement, learning, planning, improvement and experience for chess players at all levels.
I do wish that some sort of pre-dating and indeed pre-ordering could be supplied, for example in the case of the much anticipated, next Chess-base 14 arrival?

If I had the time. It still feels a bit tricky to watch these videos but unfortunately also a bit tricky to pull down moves from a book on a chessboard. With these videos you also all too often see a dirty old man. The ideal would be a good audio file you could play with a cool guy that talks and speak slowly and softly so you can make these moves on your own board. And a function that have a push back button that one could press to repeat the last move if need be and then play the sound file from the point again . But that's too much science fiction to hope for? Why this? Well Freidrich Friedel you know that what flashes on the screen you dont remember.
