What's New in Version 2.41
New Coach, online play, 100 graded levels, new sets, new boards, improved engine, universal app, retina artwork for iPhone and more! Voted No1 best Chess app!
Auto adjust to skill level.
This game is totally awesome especially when you're using it to practice and increase your skill at the game of chess. The only thing at this point that I think they could improve is to have a community playing option where you can sign up with Facebook link to it and play with your friends and people all over the world and all different levels of skill. So I rate this game for starters, and when they add the option to play with other online users I will up my rating to five stars.
First time I've run into a chess computer that calls a draw with half my men left and only two of my opponents'. Other than this extremely irritating factor, this app is almost perfect! Can't find anything else wrong with it.
Enjoy playing it and love all the different board/piece styles and colors. A sound effects option would improve the experience somewhat for some players who like that sort of thing. But really enjoy this app, and without the draw aggravation would have given it 5 stars.
Easy to Use & Understand
Out of all the chess games I have on my iOS this one has all the player options/controls available that make playing enjoyable for me. Nothing confusing about the game or options so far. Best of all NO popups every time the screen changes, so far...
Don't ruin this like everyone else does by adding some insanely frustrating and/or stupid flashing message or adds update.
