Playing chess has never been a more pleasant experience. On any platform! Everything is beautifully rendered; from the board and pieces to the way they animate.

What's New in Version 1.2.2
This version fixes some of the most common bugs.
I want to like this app so much, but I can't. Good chess apps are, basically, non-existant, and this is one of the only ones that looks good enough that I don't simply hate looking at it.
That said, the latest update broke it completely, and updates are few and far between. This could be so much better and, sadly, it's just not.
Happy to see this update
A great way to play chess on the go.
Loved it -until iOS9
Once great app, probably the best out there. Now, complete junk. PLEASE UPDATE! I've had to go back to chess.com's mediocre app :/
