My son has very bad handwriting. With this device its easy to take notation and also another way of looking at the chess board. Big plus is to sync with dropbox and send out the pdf files to coach for analysis.
Our son was a terrible note taker. The notes were never complete and it was stressful for him to type the notes into his ipad after each game. The ChessNoteR was a big relief and he is able to relax a little between the games. His USCF rating improved quite a bit recently. It's not necessarily just due to the noter but we are happy about the purchase nevertheless.
ChessNoteR performed exactly as I wanted & hoped. Understanding that it is a recording system not a teaching device. It saves time recording moves in tournament games. The tournament setup, opponenet setup makes thing easy & organizeable. The fact you can download to other applications helps review & document the games.
We are very happy with this purchase. It was a big expense so we held out for a long time but notation remained a burden for our child. He was loosing significant time in tournaments where he had 40 or fewer minutes and he wasn’t providing an accurate record of the games. After a couple of weeks of use he has been able to consistently record the entire game and says he doesn’t loose any time using it. He is relieved and we are happy.
Nice device for kids.... but I hope the pgn files can send to email right away without putting it to pc.... anyway, there is no sending method during the game... that cannot be form of communication... only after each games. Also I put transparent housing to protect and recognize easily by the td... but I would suggest if tab size for the next model of the device...
Thank you for the feedback. Because of constraints on the Android OS we removed the email feature however we have offered the Dropbox features so you can upload the game and then share it with the TD. Also we are currently working with US Chess on certifying the Nexus 9 tablet along with the Nexus 5X & 6P to offer more devices for customers to choose from. More information is located here
My 7 year was rated 900 but struggled notating as he played longer games against older and higher rated opponents. He was on a six game losing streak when the ChessNoteR arrived. With the pressure of notating gone, he focused on Chess and has started a significant climb to 1100. Also, now we can see the whole game to the last checkmate where in the past notation used to stop somewhere in the opening or mid-game. Also, had some questions about the device and got amazing customer service and immediate response after hours and on weekends.
I was an unhappy owner of the Plycounter first version. I have read the second one was worse. The ChessNoteR is a great recording device that addresses all the shortcomings of the Plycounter. First it is a quality device being a Nexus phone. Second it has a Large Screen which makes entering the moves much easier. I have been using the device to even record quick 15 minute games. Third, downloads to Chessbase is a breeze. I talked to Joey at some length about his creation, and was ecstatic, as this was what I was always looking for. He even gave me a 10% discount code to enter on ordering. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Wonderful product! I bought it for my 8 year old daughter and it truly upped her game. The chess coach said she sees positions better on the screen and it was true! Her games improved and she absolutely loved it. Also Joey has phenomenal customer service! Thank you ChessNoter!
Awesome! Played in a small tournament with envious eyes on my ChessNoter. I always struggled with keeping the scoresheet accurate but i didnt at this tournament. One less mental burden to deal with. Grateful that i didnt buy the Monroi!
I think ChessNoteR is the only USCF-approved electronic scoring device available as of this writing. It's also the best one I've seen. Once you try electronic scoring, you'll never go back. It's faster in time trouble. You can review your game immediately on the device, and a PGN is ready to analyze and archive as soon as you get home. ChessNoteR also generates PDF score sheets you can send to your TD -- and they're always legible.
