Longtime user but VERY upset

I’ve been using this app for a very long time (prob 5-6+ years?), playing almost daily any time i have a few min to kill (or sometimes hours)..
BUT recently almost every time i play i get redirected mid-game to Safari web browser to a ‘You won a free iphone!’ page. I ABSOLUTELY HATE THAT!
This was a terrible idea, whoever decided to use this scam of an advertising technique. Im fine with the normal ads you’ve always used since it is a free app (1 ad per time the app is opened) but redirecting out of the app to a very sketchy web page? That is beyond maddening.
Please, i am begging you guys & gals to change this. I’m going to give it a couple weeks to undo this, bc i genuinely love the game/app, but afterwards i will have to delete it bc i do not want to have an unsafe webpage ad force-opened while playing. Please, please fix this. Other than this, it is a 5 star app (i have rated it 5 stars before and i will again if this is fixed). I really hope someone sees this :/
Thank you in advance. I like, love you, and stuff :-*

BEWARE! Hijacks browser. launches safari in middle of your game.

If you don’t plan on immediately purchasing the no adds version don’t bother. Launches to some very disconcerting websites that are obvious hardcore adds, cookie injectors, and who knows what else. Yes we get it you need to eat and generate revenue but launching some hacker type site while I’m right in the middle of a chess move is fubar! Really kills the relaxing experience to have to go into cyber defense and stop your forced browser launch. There are other ways to get paid without treating potential customers like that. Comes off as very unscrupulous and greedy. Therefore uninstalled this app. I’d much rather watch two adds back to back at the beginning then have this thing kick me out of the game, launch safari, and hijack my browser force routing itself to go hit several sites on the for some pay per click. Not cool! Dislike would not recommend.

Glitch or cheating app?

I loved this app to learn chess and I appreciate the undo app for beginners like me. But... as my skills improved and upped the difficulty level past 50%, I caught the app either glitching and cheating.
First time happened when my bishop mysteriously disappeared! Nothing moved in its place. It was just gone.
Second time happened when I moved my queen and got check. Then a pawn from E5 jumped to G5! I had to undo and redo the move and it kept happening.
I am Very disappointed and I now will be deleting the app.
