Could be better

In terms of smoothness, the application is perfect. However, there are a few issues that need to be resolved to get five stars: first off, many people, when a loss is inevitable, leave the game and force the game to either be adjourned or their turn be cast into infinity. The only way to circumnavigate this is to leave the app and reenter. To my knowledge, this forces you to take a loss for the game instead of the deserved win. The second issue, which is unbelievably annoying, is that mid-game, the app store randomly opens. Fix these two issues and I'll be five stars.


The app will not let me sign in to play online, and this is the only mode I use....very annoying. Connection is good, game and iOS are most recent on an iPhone 6s....should be working

Good chess app, but with flaws

This is a good app, the AI is decent, there are three view
modes, and you have the option to save your game to return to it later. I would give it 5 stars, but what bothers me is that there is no option for the three fold repetition rule. Occasionally, the computer will make the same move back and forth over and over again ad infinitum, which is extremely annoying. Also, if the clock runs out, if a move is made within the last 30 seconds, the clock resets to thirty seconds ... That is fine if you are the one running out of time, but the AI can never run out of time? What gives?

Two Problems

1) An ever increasing number of players have learned to cheat the system. If a person is clearly going to lose, they will go out of the app and go into airplane mode/turn their data off/shut down their device in order to be able to adjourn the game without losing. My win loss ratio has greatly suffered because of this. There is no ability to report the player either.

2) occasionally the app will bring you to the App Store in the middle of a game. It is disruptive and a poor method of advertising.

Besides that I love this app. Playing others live with a chess timer is so much fun and the app runs smoothly. But those two issues need to be fixed
