A correspondence chess community, now on iOS


I have been a Red Hot Pawn member for more than a decade, and I am pleased with the recent release of a dedicated iOS app. It is nice to have the option of using the website or the app. You'll find plenty of opponents from beginners on up. Games can be simple one-of invites to friends (or members for the community from around the world!), but there are also options for tournaments and leagues ("clans"). The app interface is clean and usable, and like the website I expect continual improvement and added features. To set expectations, users should understand correspondence chess is generally not played in one sitting, and games typically are completed over hours, days or months.

Great interface


Have been waiting a long time for this app. Looks like wait was worth it.
When moving a piece a crosshair appears across the whole board which makes it easy to see exactly where you will drop the piece.
I don't see where I can archive my completed games.

It's about time!


I left RHP because my computer broke and I wanted to play CC on the go. At the time, RHP App was horrible. So glad you updated it. I might have to buy another sub now at RHP. See you at the boards.
