Besides my breathing app and food intake monitor, this is my fav app!

Jk. I do love your app though and I have been using the free version like it's my second job. Runs great. Rarely crashes.. But, if I had one negative comment, or something to change it would be an additional option in the menu. I'd just add another game style, with the same interface, that allowed players to play a more realistic game that didn't describe pieces' characteristics by space marking their possible movements.

Most people that DL your app probably know how to play chess so it would be cool for them and me to play a game without the place holders. Possible takes could be less obvious.. Less En Passant. Maybe a possible issue with check but probably not. So you'd start a new game like normal but you could turn the markers off, which would have to be okayed/ declined by both players before the game like an invite to a game.

The reason I'm bringing this up, is bc I saw someone in line at Starbucks playing. She literally tapped every piece, in a row, to see her options. Kinda BS! If you add the option, I'll buy the app. Deal?

kinda clunky, but it gets the job done

i've played with one random opponent and my father. The other player was reasonably close to my ability which is not all that high so maybe the matching system works well; can't be sure

It communicates the moves between both players in a timely manner which is good. As far as I know all the moves work, but I haven't tried en passant. Interface is funny where a player might think it's their move and nothing works. It would be good to highlight "your move" a little more vividly.

I have not experienced issues with it calling a draw right before checkmate like one reviewer complained of. Perhaps it's counting the third repetition of a particular position.

Sometimes it does crash upon opening, but this is merely annoying, and not nearly as annoying as having to close an ad every time I take a move; THAT makes me want to spend four dollars on the pay version, and maybe that's the point.

How did I lost the game even if opponent did not play ;)

I downloaded bec of my friend. I opened some games,I was happy with playing (I thought that ) I made my 1st moved then wait for opponent moves ,then I lost the game even if the person did not play ,how come ,i don't understand how it can be possible I was white and I made my move and then wait 3 days for his move but then I lost the game :) how stupid is it. And for other games six days passed still waiting for opponents move , maybe we going to finish games in couple years , just wasting time ,not efficient...
