Pretty good,
It’s a good app, but I really don’t see any major advantages to using this over the free website, they both give you access to pretty much the same things. I may be nitpicking but in my opinion if you pay for an app you should get access to some premium features, I’m not saying paid users should get access to the most advanced hardware, I just think people that pay for the app should be paying for more features compared to the website, instead of the app being practically a carbon copy of the free website. Other than that, great app! Keep up the good work.

Very Useful App
It may not be intuitive but as soon as you learn how to use this app, it is very helpful in the move analysis. I have upgraded to the pro version as I can make use of the 20core CPU in move calculations - with 4 different engines. For now I don’t have to buy a muti-core PC for the purposes of doing move analysis as this app allows me do the same. My suggestion for improvement - while it it compatible with iPad, it does not do the landscape format. Thus it is a little bit awkward to the edit on my saved boards using the iPad as the display is in the portrait mode, and my keyboard is oriented on the landscape. Another thing if possible is to increase the analysis time as the max time is only 30seconds. While 30 sec analysis can do a lot, the additional time will ensure that you are getting the best move possible within that alloted time. I know it means addition of more hardware and more costs. You get what you pay for, and for me if I am getting my money’s worth, I could possible pay more.

Very nice appearance, and feel to the app.
The app gives the impression of a ‘premium’ feel, if you will. It has a very modern look, and it is simplistic to utilize. Despite all those positive comments, there is room for improvement. I’ve noticed that if an illegal move is made on the board, if I’d copied the FEN/PGN, it won’t give you the exact game (PGN), only the current position from were the illegal move was made. This is a problem because when you castle, legally, the chess game will not show every move being made when you copy the PGN. I do know, and it makes sense, as to why the whole chess game won’t show, as it is an illegal move, but castling shouldn’t be considered illegal. I do wonder if there is a way to castle, however, if not, I’d recommend that if you ‘capture’, or place the King in the Rook’s square, you’d castle. Ultimately, there are many feedback by users, and suggestions, and should be taken to consideration. This app is great, and it deserves five stars.

Good but not great
For 3 dollars it is nice to have on my phone if I want to see what moves I should have played in a game but I’d be willing to pay more for a feature that lets me use a screenshot or photo of a board to pre place the pieces rather than have to do it myself.

Waste of money - Edited
The app doesn't come with any instructions on how to use and calculates moves only for white side. Edit: I figured out the button to switch between black and white. App works nicely, UI could be lot better. Could not find an option to delete saved games.

Worth it
This app does so much to hold my data and present me with multiple engine calculations. I invested in the Pro and will renew when the time comes. Sometimes “FREE” is very limited in what can do for your game. The Pro NCM is well worth the cost to me.

No Arrows or Directional Lines
The app does not provide an arrow, or other directional indicators for the next best move. It does provide letter and number for the squares however. This addition would make the app much better and easier to use.

No other app like it
This app is like the website but more convenient. It’s amazing. I learn a lot using this app and even the free version is pretty good. The paid version offers a much more robust calculation for the real serious chess players.

It’s pretty good
Good app. It would be 5 stars if you could name your boards and it would show the name, on the side of the board, under ‘saved boards’ tab.

Kind of works
The app is pretty buggy and decides sometimes that the best move is to delete a piece. I also wish it would show a few candidate options instead of just the top computed ones.

I like it. Better analysis than Chess-Wise.
Like most amateur chess players, I sometimes request a little help from a computer to decide what to do next. That is just what this program is for. This position analyzer is super simple to use. Board position setup is much faster and less frustrating than Chess-Wise, another app I've used regularly. Also, I am by no means a chess expert, but I have played a great deal of correspondence chess and I like the suggested moves from Next Chess Move better than the suggestions by Chess-Wise. Next Chess Move "thinks" longer and seems to come up with moves with better long-term consequences.

Very great
Very great app, and it has a very clean layout. However, if you use the website rather than the app, it has a stockfish 8 setting which is said to be stronger, and an option for the calculated move to automatically be played in the engine so you don't have to move the piece after you calculate the move. Other than that the app works perfect, and it defiantly easier to access than the website when you are on a mobile device.

It's absolutely amazing, I love it, and I use almost everyday. It really helps if you never know what moves to make, how to respond to your opponents move, or if you're up against a computer and you just can't beat it. It helped a lot on Play Magnus, so if you have that app and you can't beat an age, then I recommend you buy this app.

Great app
This engine has made me a better player. I find myself needing to consult it less and less and it helps me to understand what is the most logical next step. The only gripe I have is the GUI. Some things need tweaking. If I choose to flip the board it should only flip the board I'm currently on. Otherwise it's a wonderful tool.

I use this to track moves on games I play to test if I made the correct move and see what the apps suggested move. It gives me exactly what I'm looking for when playing a game of chess.
