Ratings and Reviews

It is the best online chess app in the app store !


The best FICS chess application in the app store.
I was so lucky to find it. :) So much pleasure to play online.



Crazy house no longer works! No pieces to drop. This was the only reason I used this app. Please fix and while you are at it if you could show opp pieces and numbers or each piece available to drop that would be wonderful

good fics client for iphone


i have used this app for the last couple of days. my only interest in the app is to play fics games. so far i am happy to say that the app provides a quick and stable connection. i've had no problems getting numerous opponents to choose from for matches. i really like the feature where you seek a match and can then choose from a list of players that accepted the offer. there is also a nice inerface for observing games viewing lecture bots and tactic bots on the fics. i like having access to the console as well but haven't figured it all out yet (for instance im not sure yet how or if i could join tournaments). so far this looks like the best fics app for the iphone. i dont know of any other apps that perform as well and offer as many features. the other apps are buggy, bare bones, or seem to only offer a small portion of the players on fics. im glad to have so many options in setting up matches
