Dear Optime Software LLC,


I really love the look and feel of your digital rendition of Chess. I paid for the “premium” version of your game so that I could enjoy its simplistic beauty, undistracted by ads, so I thank you that I am able to do so. This app is beautiful, timeless, and something I can see myself playing until the iPhone 25.
To further improve the experience for each and every one of your customers, I have come up with a few suggestions that, if implemented, will make the experience of using this app even better than it currently is. I thank you in advance for considering the following:
• “Undo” after checkmate
This will allow us to further evaluate our strategies, because we’re all prone to making mistakes and, as a beginner, I may not always see that a checkmate against me is about to take place.
• The ability “Save” a game to rewatch later
Each chess game is a unique piece of art, so it would be great to be able to revisit one of our masterpieces!

Again, I want to thank you for taking the time to read what I have shared.

Best regards, Sam

CHECK it out!!!


Well worth it to me. It appears some of the earlier bugs were fixed. Occasionally, checkmate will occur but it will only register as check, but I think that that is do to it being a lower level (which enables the user to hit undo in order to make a change). At least, that's how I took it! Happy gaming!!! Love it.

4 stars instead of five because of the lack of tutorial.

Total battery and data drainer and no response to emails.


Tried to email, AGAIN, with no response. Beware before buying.
I have written before four times with no response. I have made my app review known in the App Store. I will continue to do so until I get a response of why the chess app drains my iOS battery and just takes up all when I am not even connected to the Internet on my iPad. My iPad always shows 49 percent of battery usage when I play this game. If I play on my iPhone I have the same and it uses about five gigs of data in about a week. Can you tell me why this is happening.
Thank you
Again my fifth request.
