I can play again!

Excellent game! I can finally play chess again after many years. I don't have time to bring out a board and sit with a friend a play for 3 hours but here I can make a move in a game and go on to other things. I have up to like 5 days to make a move or play an entire game in one sitting. If it's been a day or two I can press the back button and forward button to see each move in the game and remember why I was making the moves that I was making and get back in rhythm. Easy to find friends or random opponents.

Great game

If you like to play chess with friends or random opponents and need nothing else for the app to perform, then this game/app should do it for you. No bugs/glitches or anything of that sort.
I do have the "chess pro" app that I did pay a good price for, and I love the coaching, the many different difficulty settings, the option to customize how pieces are setup etc., but there isn't an option to play online opponents and so If you are looking for a chess game with "chess pro" like details then this chess app isn't it. Otherwise I do recommend "chess with friends"!


I love this game app. I have always loved playing chess on the computer and now I can play actual people on my phone/tablet. I like the look back feature because if your playing multiple games you can forget what you were doing or trying to do. It would be nice to be able to see a rating on your opponents. I try to be nice to people that aren't so good, where I try to play my best against someone experienced or better. Only costs a couple dollars to get rid of the adds, which is definitely worth it.
