I haven't played chess for 20 or more years, for some reason I decided I wanted to play again. This is the best of the apps I have tried so far and to be honest I don't see any reason to try any others. The app is nice and easy to use, I've mainly played shorter format games and you are pitched against similar strength players which gives you the chance to improve your or others games. I have also started a slower paced game which seems equally as good. You can even change the board and pieces if you want to. Throughly recommend to all!

This is by far the best Chess website for online play and learning around the world but a few things let it and this application down: 1) It's slow to update games and moves unless you're playing via 3G/4G or WiFi. Why can't online games be cached on the phone so you don't rely on network connectivity all the time? 2) The usability of the interface and buttons on the main and games pages is poor. Sometimes you miss a button or press the wrong one because of this. 3) It would be great if I could choose options for online games just like you can on the website. 4) There’s no landscape mode. This would be a real benefit.

Ranking increase

In the first 2 months of having Diamond membership, my blitz point ranking has increased from 750 to 1,000.
I was constantly making blunders but it was the constant tactical practice which turned a losing situation into a winning one.
However, when my membership expired, I started learning elsewhere using videos elsewhere on the internet.
I no longer have membership and my ranking increased from 1,000 to 1,175 by just learning using Teaching videos.
I miss having limitless Tactical Training but found it too expensive. 🙁
