Simplistic Chess Notation

The Challenge

Notation is needed for chess tournament play but it can be a painful process. Pitfalls include forgetting moves, running out of room on your paper score sheet, and the possibility of notating the incorrect moves over and over again. Electronic chess notation is available, however all of the devices on the market are antiquated and a stylus is required to use them. Also, consumers are currently unable to order a device since they are all either backordered or no longer in production.

The Solution

ChessNoteR, the future of chess notation, is a new and robust solution breaking into the market for electronic chess notation. We considered all the problems of each electronic chess notation device on the market and took a new clear-minded approach to remove the complexity from the software and bring ease-of-use to the hardware.  The result is a well-developed and simplistic application that can be used via a touch screen device that easily notates chess. ChessNoteR is the future of chess notation!
