An update!

I was very excited to see Deep Green appear in the App Store pending an update...after only 4 years. I imagined something very cool after the wait...unfortunately, it was a bit of a letdown...the board looks small on my 6+. I still really like the interface and have high hopes for the app but it's a bit lacking when compared to the current competition. I

They just don't care anymore

There have been no significant updates in years. We have constantly asked for new skins, but no, no one cares. We have asked for fixes for critical bugs, but, again, no one cares. I would happily pay for new features on this app if the devs would just add them, but no one cares. This app is finished.


One of the most well polished chess apps I've seen so far @ it can only get better. Sounds and a beautiful CHECKMATE banner would be nice. Also networked play.
