I have this app, I am a fan because the problems seem somewhat original. I also did the 1000 shredder puzzles but most of those were more typical problems and I dont think I really got much new out of them.

A couple months ago I downloaded "ChessQuest" for my iPhone - which is simply a program with a bunch of chess puzzles. It's been a great time killer for those times when you're standing in line or even sitting on the crapper.
I'm not sure if the two are related, but my chess rating on RHP has been climbing. For those of you with ...[text shortened]... he later puzzles. I would like something that has more low-intermediate level stuff.

I wouldn't say the problems are so difficult- but I do think some of the sequences and piece usage are more unusual than a lot of puzzle sets so I sometimes struggle because I am trying to brute force calculate instead of clueing into the real idea of the position.
