Customer Reviews

Best Chess app

Virtual representations of chess always look wrong, because drawings of the pieces have to squish to fit in a square grid. And chess games on an iPhone always waste a ton of screen space, because the board is square and your phone is a long rectangle.

These guys solved both design problems with one crazy decision, changing the shape of the board itself. Now the pieces look right and the game uses your whole screen.



Agree very buggy. Three out of four games would not allow certain normal moves.


Do not waste your money. This app is very buggy. I can't even finish a game.
