Fritz Chess for iPhone

By  | 


Fritz chess has been one of the best engines in the world for a for years now. I got introduced to the Fritz family in the 90s. It feels almost like yesterday when I picked up Fritz 4.01 to take my chess game to the next level. Fast forward a few years, and we finally have Fritz Chess on the iPhone. Fritz is no ordinary chess game. It’s a super engine that can help you analyze games, play rated games, and take your chess game to the next level.

What I like about Fritz chess is all the game modes that are available on it. The Blitz mode is useful if you want to play quick games. The long games are closer to what you see in a classical chess game. You can also turn the clock off and go without a limit. I obviously don’t recommend that unless you have trouble managing your clock. Fritz also have many levels to help players from all levels to have fun without getting beat to a pole by it. Fritz can be ruthless if you choose the highest rating level. So if you are a chess newbie, I strongly encourage you to adjust the playing level to have more fun with Fritz.


Fritz chess can also help you learn better chess and even analyze your games. The “Review Game” option allows you to analyze all your games and try new moves at any point during these games. Fritz can also show you move ideas on the board to help you understand your moves better.


Fritz Chess is a wonderful chess program for iPhone. It has something for everybody. It may cost $9.99, but you are getting a world champion right on your phone. And it’s a lot of fun playing with friends using the multi-player level. If you have a budget for only one chess game, this is the one to go with.
