Ratings and Reviews
Several years ago I reviewed all of the major online chess playing apps. ICC, while arguably the best online playing environment for live chess, had the worst app. It is much better, but still a little awkward in its design. Using it required some counter-intuitive adjustments that are easily learned, but that will requires re-learning if you only play every few months.
For bullet, however, it is best avoided. In a recent game, my time was running down two, three, and four seconds before my opponent’s move appeared on the board. I one-minute chess, this handicap is fatal.
Over the years, I have used several interfaces to ICC, but this one is my new favorite. The functions I use are quickly accessible (starting matches and analyzing games afterward with the built-in engine).
So far so great!
I like what I see so far. This is the only chess site that I will consider paying for. I am a novice and need a sympathetic community as I learn the game. A competing site which I won’t name is a bit overcrowded for my taste.
