I am not sure if the online aspect is actually the playchess site or some other site.I think the only Chessbase release for iOS is the Chessbase online version which lets you search chessbase for the latest games/players.

Yeah, as I read the Fritz app description more closely it does not mention playchess.

Well, it is legit, and the developer has a license to use the Fritz name, but it is not a CB product as is evident.
