What's New in Version 3.5.7


Or, for those of you who are more fluent in English than Russian: Dear friends! We’ve made several improvements to the Russian version of the app. We figured things should be up to par now that Mr. Karjakin needs to prepare for the World Championship Finals against Magnus. Hope you have an even better experience now!
