Forward Chess is an interactive Chess e-book reader for mobile (iOS and Android) and desktop (Windows and Mac). You can purchase your favorite ebooks from leading publishers, play through the moves in the book, try out your own lines and even analyze with the powerful Stockfish engine.

Forward Chess allows you to take your chess library with you anywhere you go. You can sync your books between your favorite mobile (iOS / Android) and desktop (Windows / Mac) devices. You don't need a physical chess board. The in-built chess board and engine help you study your favorite books. Electronic chess books have other advantages, too: instant delivery, no shipping costs, and even free publisher corrections and updates.

The Forward Chess app is absolutely free. Currently, we offer two free sample books: GM Sergey Shipov's "On Life and Chess" and GM Lluis Comas Fabrego's "True Lies in Chess". We also offer free samples of our other books, most of which range from $1.99 to $19.99. Book price and currency unit may differ from country to country.
