Customer Reviews

I can play my friend (developer nerds) who have windows phone

As title states, I can play my Windows phone friends since there's a version for them too. Besides that, it's a nice, simple app. Nothing flashy but it's not needed.

I don't mind the ad at the bottom. They aren't charging a dime so maybe you'll see something of interest and make these people a few bucks.

Nice chess app.

App no longer works for me

Finally start getting my rating score up but all of the sudden on any game when I try and submit a move it says "we failed to submit this move, please try again"

Not cool guys... please fix and fix my rating! Lost 7 games in a row and now at a 1109 from having a 2100 rating!!!! It used to work great but now it's doing horrible things!

Straight forward chess app

This is an excellent app for correspondence chess. It's my favorite of the many that are currently available. The only thing I wish it had, is the ability to flip the board, so you can analyze from the opponent's perspective.
