Can't find/delete the App

I like chess, but can' find the App to play. In any case, I'd like to delete the hidden App from my iPad. Says it's installed. Wonder if it's collecting data?!

Great game that needs some rules implemented

It's a great game. My biggest complaint is that the fifty-move rule and en passant were left out, and that the game doesn't end when all but two kings are left standing. Nevertheless, gameplay otherwise works like normal.

I love the idea of themes. Any thoughts of adding general themes that are not seasonal?

By the way, to all complaining about not being able to find the app
- you access iMessage apps in iMessage.
