What's New in Version 1.80
Ratings analyzer and an engine that goes to around 3000 ELO and beyond! Start off nice and low if you're a beginner..
New iOS5 support, new sets, new boards, improved engine, universal app, retina artwork for iPhone and more! Voted No1 best Chess app!
PS Don't forget the EN PASSANT Pawns Chess rule! To play black just tell the computer to go first. See help if stuck.
First time I've run into a chess computer that calls a draw with half my men left and only two of my opponents'. Other than this extremely irritating factor, this app is almost perfect! Can't find anything else wrong with it.
Enjoy playing it and love all the different board/piece styles and colors. A sound effects option would improve the experience somewhat for some players who like that sort of thing. But really enjoy this app, and without the draw aggravation would have given it 5 stars.
Good app. Needs a prompt before committing a move so you can't accidentally move from a slip of the finger. Would like to see the ability to save & archive your games and make notes. Also; it would be great to have multi-players so you can play / challenge an opponent instead of just playing to CPU
Please Add Possible Move Highlight
Please add a settings option that let's us enable possible moves we can make. I'm trying to learn how to play Chess but it's difficult to do that when I don't know what moves I can make. I'm having to use a different Chess app that has this option, but I'd like to use this Chess app instead.
Please add this option ASAP! 5 stars when it's added.
