    Hi everyone,
    I am using my iPad to study chess and download and save pgn files, which are small files around 50kb containing moves to a chess game.
    However, I have no idea where these files are stored,, and so can't access them.
    Could anyone please help?
    Thanks in advance.......

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :) You likely need an app that is a PGN Viewer - I went to the App Store and entered the search terms shown by the arrow in the attached image which produced plenty of hits - see if this helps?

    Now, I do not play chess anymore and have not tested these apps - so up to you; others w/ experience using these files hopefully will 'chime in' - good luck. Dave

    Thank you Giradman for your reply. I do actually have a pgn reader as you suggested, but I don't know where the pgn files are stored on my iPad 4. I really appreciate your help, and will try different pgn viewers as you suggest.
    Many thanks again

    The PGN files would be stored within the PGN reader app.
