April 2011 News: my instructional chess app "Chess U", more than a year in the making, has arrive on iTunes for iPhone and iPad. Go get it for free. The web page including a product video is: http://www.seventhrank.com/
We have courses on Rook Endings, Play Like Anand, Play Like Tal, and a free course on Attacking. We also have coming a course on the 10 Most Famous Games of all time (Classics 101) as well as a course later this summer by GM Perelshteyn on the Accelerated Dragon. Also planned are beginner courses for basic checkmates and so forth.
Here is the direct link for the Chess U on iTunes:
I like writing about chess history and also I develop instructional chess software.
I maintain a Personal Chess History website.
Pre-chessbase games vs Seirawan, Benjamin, Dlugy, other notables; anecdotes, photos.
I am working on an iPhone annotated games and quizzes app to help people on the road to chess mastery. Early May 2011 was when it first got onto Apple's iTunes.
Take a look at http://www.seventhrank.com/ or http://www.seventhrank.com/chessu to learn more. It will now on on iTunes under the name "Chess U". The first courses include Openings, Endgames, and Famous Players (Anand).
