Great Social Chess app... Couple small requests

I've tried many chess apps, but this one poses best. I have played this app for about 3 yrs now... it is the easiest to connect and play against closer friends, thx to FB. I got a bunch of people hooked. Couple special requests from a die hard chess player and dedicated Chess W Friends patron:
-More Customization for boards and pieces
-Allow to save a couple games for replay purposes
-Having a "friends" list aside from FB would be great
-Please allow this to be compatible w Apple Watch, Words w Friends is compatible and I'm sure this wouldn't be much different

Please update

I have had CWF for a while and I am a fan. I recently upgraded my iPhone 5 to an iPhone 6 Plus and am now experiencing problems with the chat function. I am still able to send and receive messages but I cannot see what I am typing. That needs to be fixed. I admire the simplicity of the app but I would like to see an update with the interface. In addition, I would like to see stats as they correlate to individual opponents like Words With Friends. Also, some customization would be nice, e.g. different colors, board and piece styles. Zynga, PLEASE update this game!!!

Better chat?

We need to have chat conversations transcend games. If an opponent and I have a conversation, it should be on every game we play together, not lost in past games. So often someone will say something after a checkmate and I have to go back to the previous game and search for what they said and look for what game it was. It should also allow me to always be one color, or allow me to stay one color when possible. Gets confusing when playing several games -- oh yeah, I'm white on this one.
