Chess - Play & Learn for Positive User Reviews

GlitchesThey are a lot off good features but the tournament section is above annoying. It’s not user friendly and it’s no good way of navigating around while in a tournament. You check your analysis during a ongoing live tournament and if the game starts while you in analysis you can’t get back in to the tournament. It’s just so many glitches in general and with these many players it feels like you should develop the platform instead of adding new features. I’ve been playing for years and I appreciate the app but sometimes it just annoys me so much.Version: 3.9.25 (6)

Good appI just managed how to use it , very complete and full of chess game options.Version: 3.9.20 (2)

DefinitiveI have a lot of chess apps, but this is the only one I use. A great one stop shop for all your chess needs..Version: 3.7.8

Great appThis is the best chess app i have had so far. My only issue is when we try to access the lessons we have already completed it won’t allow us to re do that lesson. We have to wait for a day. I get that there is a membership thing where you get all the lessons unlocked but even so the ones players have already done should be accessible for them should they want to revise it in the future. Fix that and it will be a 5 star rating..Version: 3.8.14

Good app but has some annoying features in blitzA good app if you like chess rather like the puzzles there alway updating. But if you like blitz games there seems to be a lag in pre set moves when your opponent makes moves so it can wast a couple seconds re setting the move (annoying in a blitz game) Also the placement of buttons can be annoying mainly the button that allows you to look back on previous moves and the confirmation button of your current move are in the same place so when trying to execute a move you accidentally press the back button and then have to press the forward button, set your move again and it can just wast a lot of time from the placement of 2 button in the same place I found a lot of people that really dislike this one..Version: 3.8.68

Great appI love the app, and the way everything is lain out makes it easy to navigate. I also really like the addition of balanced games and chess 960. It makes me wonder though: when will the app catch up with the website’s variants? I really enjoy playing variants, so it seems like a missed opportunity..Version: 3.9.25 (6)

Excellent sitePlenty of things available for free. Online play is tough, players are very good, but the app tries to match you to equivalent players. App also spots cheats, have had them up my score when they’ve detected an engine being used against me. I only play casually, but the forums are mostly friendly, too. I was nervous of playing online, but it’s nothing to be worried about! App encourages you to improve, without being overwhelmed by ads..Version: 4.1.7 (2133)

Subscribing was a no brainer.I am enjoying this app. I particularly enjoy playing with others over time as well as the quick games. The lessons have helped my game very much..Version: 3.8.14

New found respectOriginal review: 1 star Gotta say I wasn’t a fan. In my last game before I decided to uninstall, instead of giving me a victory it decided on a stalemate-draw (which was impossible). The opponent only had 5 pieces left: 3 pawns, 1 knight, and the king. I had him in a situation where he could not move his pawns because they were all blocked, nor could he move his king/knight without placing himself in checkmate. Either my castle, my queen, or my knight would have the victory. But instead of checkmate in my favor, it decided on a draw. Edit to review: 5 stars Gotta admit when I am wrong. I did not know that stalemate also applied to not allowing the opponent to move. I thought that if I trapped their king and placed them in a situation to where they couldn’t make a move without being in checkmate then I would be awarded the victory. I appreciate the response to my review. I’ll definitely both reinstall the app and change the review..Version: 3.9.20 (2)

I love itAbsolutely the best app for learning and playing chess! I’ve learnt so much, was finally able to beat my girlfriend and I love having a sense of what my rating is. Highly recommend.Version: 4.0.2 (3)

Like the practice framsLike the practice frams.Version: 3.6.31

Daily gamesHi do the developers have any plans to add 40 moves in 2 hours or something similar like 12 hours per move or 8 hours per move, 24 hours per move is the quickest game at the minute for daily games this is so long to play a move as some players take so much time to move when the game is nearly over for them. Because of this I am close to closing my account and moving to another chess app. Please add this to the game as I think it would make the app lots better for everyone and gives people more choice to play daily games quicker.Version: 3.9.17 (1)

Goood gamee, I love it!I love the game but however, I think there should be some what of a timer after each move, players take the whole timer if they losing before making a move. I play 10/15 min games and it happens so often. 2 minutes or lose by abandonment.Version: 4.1.7 (2133)

The best app for chess loversThis is by far the best app for lovers of chess. Whether you love speed chess, a nice long game, learning strategies, to name a few, you cannot go past this app. Play people from around the world or the computer, you cannot but improve your game and your elo.. Do not hesitate. Download this app and you won’t regret it..Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Great app - old study plan should be in mobileThe app is great. I wonder why has the old-study plan been removed from the lessons in the mobile version. I can see it’s still there in the web version. If any developer reads this comment, please consider to include the old-study plan in the mobile version as well. Thanks for all the work you guys do to create this app. I use it everyday..Version: 3.8.66

SolidBest chess app I’ve ever used .. you can get a game with someone almost instantly!! And the extra features are amazing...Version: 3.8.27

Overall, an Amazing AppI want to start off by saying that I love this app. I have been using it for more than a year now and I must say that out of the apps that I have on my phone currently, this app is probably the one I have used the most, and will stay on my phone for many years to come. There are many cool features, most of which I use. There is anything from tactical puzzles to dazzle and baffle your mind and make you become a player, to daily puzzles and tournaments you can join. However, there is one thing that I would add. On the website, you can join or leave clubs as you please, but the app itself won’t let you unless it prompts you with it. I found this really annoying when I spent over half an hour trying to figure out and look up how to leave a club that I lost interest in. If you could please add this, then it would be much easier. Overall, an amazing app..Version: 3.9.8 (1)

Same DeviceI would like to add the feature where you can play on the same device back. I would also like it if you could create a specific situation/game (mainly so my friends and I can continue playing from last time). Other chess apps are really bad in my opinion, and this app is the only one I find good. So please make these small changes. 4 stars of out 5. Thanks..Version: 3.9.9 (6)

Great app to improve your chess skills and enjoy playing anytime.Overall, excellent app to hone your skills, learn new material, practice against the computer in a game or doing training drills while the best feature remains playing fellow human players worldwide any time you want to play. There are some issues with interrupted connections and I am unsure how abandoned game forfeitures work. Sometimes my opponent appears to leave a game and I have to wait for all the time to run out for the game to end and other times when a message says “”Opponent name” with lose by abandonment in X minutes”. How the program determines how many minutes to reconnect without forfeiture is unclear. Also, the ability to suspend a game by mutual agreement to resume at some point set by GMT would be a welcomed enhancement. There are far fewer session control freeze ups or games disconnected issues than a few years ago. Still, great site and app. Highly recommend..Version: 3.8.66

A fantastic app for all chess levels.As both a programmer and a novice chess player, I can testify a lot of work, and a lot of love, went into this app. A lot of chess apps have the same run of the mill features: play vs. a computer at various skill levels or play online and receive a score that will increase or decrease based on your win ratio. This is fine, but this app decided to go much further. I have never been in a chess club or received lessons, but I’ve always wanted to be a good chess player. You can learn a lot by playing the game a bunch online or against a computer, but you won’t really learn tactics, how to properly set up a board, and everything else one needs to know to excel at the game. This app teaches you all of that and more. They have an advanced version, but I’m doing fine with the free version. I’ve already noticed that my ability to strategize and develop my pieces has increased quite a bit. Chess has became less of a game where I figure it out move by move, but finally something that I can think out and consider. I attribute that all to this app’s lessons. If you’re a beginner looking to develop your skills, or an advanced player looking to brush up on lessons, or a master looking to have fun online, you’ll be able to do all of those things here. I wish app development was typically this good. 10/10.Version: 3.6.31

Excellent development toolI’ve played chess off and on for a few years but until now never spent the time to truly learn how to play well. This app is excellent in the way it slowly steps you through fundamentals into more advanced techniques. Ive not tried all features as there are so many but I’m really enjoying the quick tournaments to test my play against human opponents, whilst taking occasional lessons, and benchmarking progress against the avatars. I am only few weeks in, and my game has already proved considerably. I don’t know if this app can take a player from good to great but it’s certainly is a great way to sharpen up quickly..Version: 3.9.17 (1)

Serious Privacy issues, BEWAREThe game allows anyone with link to your profile view ALL your friends, when you played with them as well as all details of your friends as well!! Its like an open book, none of your activities with your friends are private at all. Game is good otherwise but is a privacy nightmare..Version: 3.9.1

The best Chess app out there for me and maybe youThis app is amazing for pretty much everything in chess. This app (Chess) has lessons and daily lessons, bots to play, themes for pieces and the board and you can play people as well! The only thing I don’t like is diamond / premium, for unlimited lessons and daily lessons you must buy premium. To unlock every bot you need premium (although there are many free bots). Also, I forgot to mention that when you play bots you can change the difficulty from Assisted all the way up to Challenge (Challenge is where you get no help and assisted is where you get help for every move). There are three difficulty’s while playing bots, I already mentioned two, they are assisted, friendly and challenge - friendly is where you get three hints. Anyways, I recommend this app and my personal thought and this app is that it is very good. Thanks for reading - Edward..Version: 4.1.18 (3420)

Save your privacy and playtime for the better chess appsI have been using this app for almost three months. My biggest complaint is how much it slowed down every device we have loaded it onto, but hardly the only problem. The next biggest problem is how some members are allowed to go the full time allotment before deciding the winner due to abandonment, then other times it ends the game, I suspect it is which membership you select (premium cost); either way it is extremely aggravating to play for half an hour, then have to wait for the time to run out if the other player leaves. One of the perks of the most costly membership tier is that you get unlimited game analysis. The issue is that the algorithm used for game analysis is often not accurate, for instance: the analysis will say you should have moved your queen to f7 when the queen does not have a direct access to that square. Another problem is how the algorithm judges blunders, missed wins, etc,. The lessons are also problematic with those same issues. The biggest problem is how bogged down devices become-I was told to cover my devices camera if I use this app. I do not see the option to allow access to personal information, camera. Every device I have this app loaded onto, the batteries drain so fast and there was access to my camera from an unknown source. I think people are safer using some of the apps that are have a good reputation with the BBB (in the USA)..Version: 4.0.0 (2)

Suggested new featureSo this is obviously one of the best apps out there, but one feature I’d like to see is that when an opponent disconnects there is an option to allow the computer to take over at the same difficulty. I’m in the beginner stages and opponents tend to leave when it gets difficult or they make a mistake, which means I don’t get experience in the end game or chance to execute the attack I’ve set up. So having the computer take over the game when they disconnect would be great Thanks.Version: 3.9.27 (2)

A great alternative game site when your friends are to busy.I enjoy playing blitz and rapid chess games with this App. I find it a wonderful source of spacial cognitive ability enhancement. The news and articles by Peter Doggers are well written and timely. You play against chess players from many different countries. The tactics training is fun and if you upgrade you receive extra features. Lessons are available and charts and statistics show your progress. I play tournament chess at the West Valley Chess Club. Our members use computers to train and analyse the games. By playing many bullet games Online games I was able to achieve the 1st place of the Chaba Mehes memorial tournament. My ability to calculate quickly helped me defeat my rivals. Developing an opening strategy with online chess is another benefit. You can pick your favorite player and watch live games. Whether you are an amateur or considering becoming a professional, this App will be a great resource..Version: 3.6.31

Decent could be betterReally well set up app and has the best platform I think for playing chess. Must have for anyone who wants to play chess. Two major drawbacks is that the premium version is so expensive. I would but it if it were a one time payment but it’s not so I can’t afford it. Another feature it lacks is the ability to create your own custom position to try and play from. For example being able to set up endgames or positions you see reached by other players. It would be very easy to add so I don’t know why they haven’t. Other than that very good app..Version: 3.9.16 (2)

Great overallPlease improve the tactics rating system, I’ve seen tactics that add 1 point for success, and others that subtract up to 14 points for failure. It makes it frustratingly difficult to improve over time, my rating has crashed in a matter of days because of it, after trying to bring it up for almost a year. Thanks.Version: 3.8.14

Great app!It is a very useful app with lots of different functions and means of which to improve your chess game! There are lots of free lessons that are extremely helpful and is very user friendly with a good UI and lots of customisation. Only problem I could find is sometimes it wouldn’t let me send an invite to my friends to play a game but asides from that it’s a brilliant app! 10/10 would download again -IGN.Version: 3.7.8

Great gameI’ve been playing the free version. Not too many ads and you get access to a fair amount of content. There are features that you can only access once a day or week but you can pay to access more. Obviously as a free user I’d prefer more content more regularly, but I also understand the business needs to make money somehow..Version: 4.0.2 (3)

BEST CHESS EVER!!!!I had started playing chess around three years ago, but stopped playing after a while because me sister wouldn’t have time for it anymore. I also didn’t know all the weird stuff or the stuff that is secluded, like castling, stalemate and the difference between check and checkmate. And so I gave up on chess. But three years later, in 7th grade we had a chess tournament in our contest math class. I was very unpleased and upset to have found out that I lost in the second round! I watched the finals match, and watched one of my good friends get bashed and checkmated in around five to six maybe seven minutes. At that moment, I wanted to be like that guy who defeated my friend so badly. So I started forcing my sister to play chess with me. But however at one point she got tired of it. So then I had to find a good chess app or website to play on. After lots of asking people what the best chess apps are, I finally got this one!!! And I must say I love it! There is however, a minor issue. I found out there is now multiplayer! The other player must have an account and you have to invite them. Anyway, other than that, it’s all cool!!!.Version: 3.8.14

Learning Chess the Easy WayIn this app, you will find that it will answer all your questions and make you a better player whether you are a beginner or a long term player. Questions answered well, opening plays and end games plus archived games explained move by move. The best app I have found for Chess enthusiasts. (Hiawgbbss).Version: 4.0.0 (2)

Cool game!!!0w0This game makes me think very well. And it’s interesting i play this game each day cause it’s chess UwU 0w0 TwT >.< OvO UvU =_= (o_o).Version: 3.9.1

Update of reviewUpdate. Thanks for the reply. It still isn’t as flexible to alter settings in the game you are playing against the computer to try out different scenarios. I still prefer the older version. But I appreciate your reply. Thank you. I have also changed my initial gut reaction score of 1 star to 4 to reflect a more accurate account of a great app. Oh No what’s happened? Latest update has ruined the game. Much too gimmicky. Before you could play around with the computer Vs and were able to alter which side was the computer or have both as human players and adapt the board to various scenarios during a game. This seems to have all gone and you are left with choosing a cartoon avatar to play against and limited options during the game. Huge mistake and stops any enjoyment I took from this app. Wish I could roll it back to the previous version but will now have to delete it. What a shame..Version: 3.9.9 (6)

It’s a good app!Each app has there downsides but this app is actually very good! I’ve been playing chess with my close relatives and friends also when I began I saw you could play against the computer , which really helped me improve I started if by playing with a person on the computer called Martin from Italy And I lost but I kept trying and then the game was trying with me ! It improved my chess a lot so now I beat all my friends , If you would like to play chess this is one of the most greatest apps in my opinion, if you decide to try it you will never regret that choice and I hope people like this chess app and download it since it’s really good normally I thought it would be bad but trust me it’s not bad at all . Anyways Now I must improve on my Checkmates Bye!.Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Good app but really annoying when people quit and you have to wait for them to auto resignRly like the app. But please implement some kind of “confirm your there button”. Because waiting 2 minutes is rly annoying when u have to sit on the app and wait for them to leave just to get your win. Rather than the auto resign it should be a button the person has to press to confirm they’re there. And they should have like 45 seconds to click the tick. 2 mins is really frustrating when you know they have quit the app out of rage and you have to wait.Version: 3.9.29 (3)

1 complaintThe chat option is terrible and very frustrating. Type 3 letters and it bounces off . It’s not good.Version: 3.8.72

Inconsistent with challenges and games.I hit 1200 on so many occasions then loose over a 100 points on your rating system so quickly. This morning I made a move which cost me 12 points and considered it the move wrong, I decided since I had lost this challenge I would try again and use the hint and blow and behold the app decides to move my Queen to the same point in which I lost 12 points. The next challenge I won with 3 moves and scored a magical 3 points. Wow. As they say, and I don’t particularly like the saying, but “ there is more than one way to skin a cat.” I think outside the box and loose. Love the game but I often end up with stalemate just before the next move is checkmate as many have commented. Great game and love it, but can be frustrating with a few glitches..Version: 4.1.9 (2428)

Please make horizontal screen available!!!Can you guys add a horizontal screen mode?.Version: 3.9.17 (1)

Long time user, always enjoyed!Upgraded to be a premium user (platinum) after being a free user for years, and have always been very satisfied overall. Seen lots of bug fixes over time, which is great. Enjoyed watching the development of new strategies of catching and punishing cheaters. I’ve had fun with the community and am now an admin of a chess group. If you enjoy chess, this is one of the slickest websites out there. The app is very good, but disappoints slightly—I wish there was a bit more done to round out some of the edges, such as more/better functionality for groups/administration and forums, and I wish *regularly* for the conditional move system. You can always visit the desktop website for that stuff, but I miss it a lot on mobile and I can’t fully bring myself to give five stars until at least that stuff is in. (Glad it doesn’t appear to be interrupting my music/podcasts anymore!).Version: 3.8.29

Bing bang boom5Head.Version: 3.9.1

I need a confirm button.My fingers are less certain than they used to be and I occasionally drop a piece a square early on the app, I cannot be the only person that this happens to. It has become more as I get older but it is now happening on about 3/4 of my games. It is ruining my experience on this app which I have enjoyed for years. Please add a confirm setting, or if there is one ( I can’t believe there isn’t!) tell me how to find it. Thank you for helping me find the confirm button!.Version: 4.0.6 (1)

Killing itAwesome app. Whenever I wanna play the app connects me to someone somewhere. So no need of begging siblings to play with me. Can learn from the videos and also from other players. Love the app, love this community..Version: 3.8.55

Fantastic community for chess!This app is perfect! A couple requests, maybe feature that you can turn on in settings before you start game, but to be able to pause the game if both players agree and it hides the board until you both unpause. Handy if you get an interruption why playing casually. And to have the chat box open when the board is there, so no need to hide the board to type a reply. Thanks guys.Version: 3.9.17 (1)

Rubbish !!!I find constant stalling etc ...There is no accuracy in this app I wouldn’t base anyone s chess rating according to this app !!! The lag has to be fixed and I find that when you are playing a player above 1700 when you re ahead on pieces or in an extremely good position you lose on time on most occasions ...and against a say 2000 plus rated player there seems to be a huge time advantage to that player particularly in bullet chess ,Is this coincidental or is it to do with internet speed I’m not sure but I VE played for a number of years and seen enough not to take any of it seriously including the rating can never beat playing over the board !!!.Version: 3.9.20 (2)

View of a beginnerIf you are looking to improve at chess, I would highly recommend this website. I have a gold membership, which allows me access to unlimited puzzles (which you will need to hone your tactical ability), and at some point, I will upgrade because I will want to access the material for more advanced students of the game. If you are just looking to just play for fun, I would still highly recommend. Playing real people (rather than a chess engine) is a very different experience, and far more enjoyable..Version: 3.9.17 (1)

Great app but keeps freezingFor someone who just wants to while away his time playing the computer for the time being the app is fantastic. It has hints for the move, different levels ofDifficulty, and when you make a move it tells you very clearly if you’ve made a huge mistake versus a small mistake. The graphics are simple and clear and everything seems great. EXCEPT for one thing. For the past couple of weeks, I find that one I hit the back button more than a couple of times in the game it freezes and there’s nothing I can do it at the restart again. This occurs every single game. I did move from intermediate to advanced so maybe this freezing is a feature of the advanced game which perhaps doesn’t allow the user to undo moves more than once or twice? I’m not sure..Version: 4.1.1 (2)

Too many cheatersThey’re too many 800-1200’s that play like they’re 1800’s. The only plausible explanation is they’re using their room temperature IQ to load up an engine and cheat. Very simple and easy to do and it seems many users are doing that..Version: 3.8.72

Great features for the beginner and the experiencedThis app is the best one that I’ve tried so far. Loaded with puzzles, one-on-one game features and backed by a large community of chess enthusiasts..Version: 3.9.25 (6)

Needs variants.Hi, I downloaded this app a year ago, and I think it’s a great app. I would have given it a five star but it doesn’t have variants, which is available on the website..Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Great app, some mistakes with the lessonsTo start, if you are looking for a chess tutor, look no further. This app is extensive with the lessons, analysis and game reports. I love that feature. There is only two drawbacks which is why I gave it four stars. One, in one, maybe two lessons they moved a pawn backwards and made you attack the pawn. Pawns don’t move backwards so this lesson is unrealistic. When you want to actually learn chess you need as many realistic examples to not confuse yourself. Hopefully, the devs review and replace this portion of the lesson. Next, it may be unfair but it would be great to know at least what and when the opponent had a “missed win” in the game analysis. You can see your mistakes, best options, and best moves made, but nothing to learn from the opposing side. Since we pay extra if this feature was included it would give you a bigger picture. Overall everything else is great. A few glitches here and there. But it is highly addictive so make sure you are not multitasking because you can get caught up quick! I decided to keep the monthly subscription because there is a lot to explore at the moment. Hopefully, I. an come back with a five star review if these small issues get fixed!.Version: 4.0.12 (1)

Wrong RulesThe game is overall pretty good but it is hard to play your friends and the rules are wrong, as I play the computer if s/he can’t move then it says it’s a draw, if they can’t move you win! Because you play to take the king and if you move into check your king is gonna get taken that’s why you can’t move into check, so if you force them.Version: 3.9.17 (1)

Rubbish recent versionWhen I open the app i get a list of old games and have to click on my profile to find live games / my turn. Also a pain to find open challenges to play. I think they’ve run an experiment to increase the number of games started and confused the users into starting new games because they can’t find old ones. Either way the UX is REALLY irritating compared to how it used to be a year ago..Version: 4.1.14 (2949)

What an incredible App!!I don’t usually write reviews on here but wow, this app deserves all the praise i could give! A incredible chess gaming experience, complete with training, puzzles, challenges, tutorials, videos ... the list just goes on! Yes there is an option to pay but it so very cheap in relation to what you get, and you don’t need to pay to play either. Nearly all the features are accessible without paying, albeit they are more restricted without membership, but there’s a massive amount that’s available for free. Great work, guys and gals. One happy customer 😊.Version: 3.9.10 (2)

Everything great but this one thing…I love this app it is soo much fun compared to the other chess apps however there is one problem with it. Even when you turn no hints or help on it still will give you that ‘helpful’ thing where it gives you the option only to move your king or characters to block the king. This is helpful for you but when you try to do a good move and have them at check and they don’t realise it, even though they normally wouldn’t be able to block it, they will be able to block your win. Please make an option/ filter for online that makes that turn off please.Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Perfect?!This chess app is amazing and feels like it has everything you can possibly need. The chess AI can play at an extremely high level when you want it to and Ive learned many things from the AI! Also the live matchmaking system has a wide variety of options you can choose from, my favorite being the 10 minute matches because they are quick and fun, and it matches you up with other players in mere seconds. I would recommend this app to any chess player, whether it be just starting out or a great player because the matchmaking will set you up against opponents of equal skill level and the AI can be set to any rating as well. For beginners there are videos and a bunch of resources available to help you to become a great chess player as well! One last thing I want to point out is that the developers are phenomenal, they are quick to address any problems you may have and really care about the app and want it to be the best it can be. If you have problems or concerns I would highly suggest trying to reach out to them!.Version: 3.8.34

Time wastersIf someone doesn’t play for 1 minuet he/she should be kicked out of the game. Many waste time just to win the game. So I too do to someone else to take someone else’s revenge. I hope decision makers have basic brain to understand the bug..Version: 3.8.34

Great appReally good for players like me getting into chess a lot of different ways to improve your chess ability through games lessons or puzzle etc progress is fast and enjoyable.Version: 3.9.29 (3)

GreatGreat platform to play chess. Needs more work with cheaters, otherwise a very enjoyable experience..Version: 4.0.12 (1)

Good but a few problemsI enjoyed this for the first couple of hours I had it installed. I made an account so I could access some of the features that you aren’t given off the bat. After spending a couple of hours playing against the computers, I got to one I had trouble beating. I decided I should look at some of the lessons that were recommended to me. After finishing the first lessons, I was about to start the next but was stopped because I had to pay to do more than one per day. I understand that the app is free and normal chess lessons aren’t, but I wish you could have more lessons per day. I ran into the trouble of taking one lesson and then trying against the computer, only to fail again. So I would then wait a day to start the next lesson, only to realize I didn’t remember anything I was taught from the previous lesson, and I wasn’t improving. My suggestion is that the one per day increases to three per day. This would allow people to take multiple lessons in succession, and they could then practice what they learned from the lessons against a computer. Beside the one per day limit, I had fun and might install it again eventually..Version: 3.9.17 (1)

Great platform but….I have this app on my phone and it works very well and is great to use……… but I am frustrated that I can’t get it to work on my ipad. I forgot my password…. But the password change or response to forgotten password don’t work….. and there seems to be no way of communicating with the site to explain the problem. Have deleted and reloaded the app several times. It tells me it sent emails to sort the forgotten password but non appear. To summarise … there is at least one flaw in the program and communication re anything but their interest is non existent..Version: 3.9.21 (9)

Upgrade option brokeGreat app and easy to use but after purchasing the upgraded account it says I have not. Re-purchasing says I already purchased. There is no button (that I can find) to restore an existing purchase so I don’t get any of the benefits. Please fix this or add a restore purchase button - it’s extremely frustrating … I want my unlimited puzzles 😅.Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Best All RoundBest computer I’ve played but what makes this app so good are the training features. Helped me see a whole different side to a game I thought I knew. Great video and step by step lessons. I promise I’ll subscribe soon!.Version: 3.8.37

Game freezingFor some reason the game keeps freezing even though my internet working fine. Have lost lots of games as the clock ticks down without me showing the opponents move. Both my time and opponent time are frozen and no way to restart. Was told to delete and reinstall the app, but that didn’t resolve the issue. Becoming really frustrating to play the game as you don’t know when the app will freeze (which is almost every other game).Version: 3.9.14 (2)

GoodFind games really fast and lot of great content for developing at chess. Missing star because UI is annoying to use. Menu has wayy too many options and isn’t very intuitive to use.Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Wonderful App For BeginnersHaving known not much more than the basic rules, I find this app extremely helpful in helping me understand different moves and tactics. I now win almost all of my friendly games and I also compete in some casual tournaments in my community. Most of my more advanced learning has come through this app, and it’s super handy. It gets your through the very basics quickly and brings you right in to the good stuff. That, along with some of the daily puzzles, offer a new experience every day. I do not use premium but it seems that it would be worth it. You get so many more puzzles, which is one of the best way to master your moves and analysis of the game. The videos and streams are also convenient and not too bulky and very user friendly; the chess teachers are welcoming to viewers and keep a lively environment to keep me from getting bored. I can easily spend 20-30 minutes a day or more without ever getting bored or tired of it. A fantastic app all around, free or paid..Version: 3.8.43

Very goodVery simple, 2D chess game with good formatting and easy ways to choose what modes you want to play. I love that you can have different themes and colours and just generally customise the Home Screen, and how you can get into a game so quickly and how the game gives you free lessons. Although I feel that this chess game pushes the premium subscription onto you too hard and doesn’t let you do a things more than a few times a day without restricting it due to you not paying. Apart from this game having small annoying paywalls, it’s a really well made game and I love it for the most part..Version: 4.0.12 (1)

Can’t access premium features? (RESOLVED)Love the app, very handy for learning the game and playing others online. However, I’m in the free trial and I keep getting bombarded with prompts to go premium and can’t access any premium features - when I go to just subscribe again it tells me I already have the subscription. Deleting and redownloading the app hasn’t achieved anything. Obviously a bug but please fix so I can actually analyse my games (and get what I’m actually paying for in a weeks time) Edit: all sorted now, thanks for your help!.Version: 3.9.17 (1)

App does not show the entire screen on iPhone.I’ve set the display to normal and not zoomed. I still can’t set the last file or the check box to insert a move. It is useless on an iPhone and almost certainly an issue with the app not the iPhone iOS. Also some of the puzzles have more than one solution and you get knock down many points for choosing the best solution. There needs to be a way to submit correction and get those points back. I got a response from the de eloped stating it was the zoom setting on my iOS. That was the first thing I checked and it had no effect on the functioning of the app. I poured over al the online comments and tried everything I could find on the topic, including reviewing many other settings. The iPhone app does not work and I do not think it related to IOS. My hunch is it’s a problem with the app. Which is unfortunate because I can’t bring my iPad or desktop or laptop with me everywhere. I can typically bring my phone. Fortunately the puzzles are sized right. Even those have a problem on the small screen as I hit the wrong button and it skips to the next puzzle and does not allow you to return to the one you were working on..Version: 4.0.12 (1)

Nice designThis seems to be a really interesting game, reminds me a bit of shatranj though so it’s a little derivative. Also there is a bug where the player can capture a pawn on the third rank even if it’s not on that square. On the whole though it is quite good and seems easy enough for the white player to win every time..Version: 3.8.88

Nice app, Welcome screen is harmful.Nice app. However the splash screen is way too bright. Why can’t it be part of the theme I select?.Version: 3.9.30 (2)

BugTried to withdraw from a tournament but it doesn’t let me.Version: 4.1.14 (2949)

Many issues with the latest updateLatest update is not stable. Moving pieces is extremely difficult and piece selection is also faulty and inaccurate. Have to try several times to drag piece and it drops prematurely on the wrong squares. Touch and move by touching on destination square also doesn’t work properly (in addition to drag and drop). I end up trying 3-4 times to make a single move and it’s very annoying. Please fix..Version: 3.9.17 (1)

Keep coming backAs a learner, I've felt encouraged by this app more so than anything else I've tried. This time I'm sticking with it, coming back daily to test and improve my skills. This app also has some nifty settings you can turn on and off for different challenge levels. I'm able to incrementally challenge myself while making the experience fun rather than crushing. I'm going to stick with this one..Version: 3.6.31

Game abandonmentGreat game and features but there is an issue / cheating thing happening. What happens is I’m playing a game and comfortably winning ( up 12 material and 4 moves from mate ) when the game suddenly is aborted after 45+ moves, the game doesn't come up In my game log, and I get no rewards. This has happened multiple times and I’m getting frustrated and want to have some answers please. But on the positive side the game has amazing features such as self analysis and puzzles. Please help.Version: 4.0.8 (1)

ÉchecExcellent!.Version: 3.8.55

Amazing app but..I personally think this is the best chess app out there and I would definitely recommend this to many people I know. But today I went on to practice for an upcoming chess tournament but I came to find out the app was broken! Each time I clicked the app I was sent off within seconds. I have had no issue with this before and I am very upset that the app doesn’t work. I’m very certain that this is a problem with my iPad, but no matter what I try it still won’t function. I have already tried deleting the app then reinstalling and restarting my iPad but neither have worked. I’m just wondering if I could get any advice to resolve this issue..Version: 4.1.10 (2595)

I never review anything on the App StoreUsed to play chess when I was younger and always had an interest in the game. Since growing older and getting along with my life, I forgot how much I loved the game. Recently discovering this app I thought I’d download it and see if I would gain interest in the game again. Hear I am at 23:45 writing a review on how splendid this app is for chess. Really glad that I’m back into chess and learning so much more because of this app. Thank you to the developers.Version: 3.9.25 (6)

Good chess appI really like this app and I enjoy how you can learn lessons from it , but I did notice one issue. It doesn’t properly format on the screen. What I mean by that is that while you can see most of the pieces, you can see the rook located on the far right side on some of the multiplayer options. The function where you play against a computer is perfectly fine. The issue is when you play against local players (the only one I’ve noticed to have issues with thus far). As mentioned previously you are not actually able to see the rook on the right side, you can see the bishop to the left of it by one square, just not the rook or the right most pawn directly in front of it by one row. In addition, you also can’t clearly see the timer to the right of it because it cuts off of the screen. Overall, I really enjoy this game aside from the few formatting issues stated above..Version: 3.9.24 (5)

Chess skills and understanding already improved! 4 1/2 starsI’ve been a VERY casual chess player thru the years, but never had a real grasp on the theories or strategies for playing. This app, in a very short time, has improved my game and my ability to think further ahead than just the next 1 or 2 moves like I did in the past. It is loaded with things to do, watch, and learn and I’m really getting into playing chess again. I’m getting decent wins against the computer that I would have lost before using this app. My only real complaint is, the after game analysis doesn’t explain WHY a different move would have been better, or WHY this move was a blunder. Some times its obvious, like I lost a queen bcuz I got too focused on a different piece. But frequently, it will suggest the best move was a sacrifice in order to move another into play. A quick example: had a knight in danger of being captured. Moved up a pawn to protect. After game analysis said the better move would have been to push up my other knight instead. But the other knight position would not protect my endangered knight nor would it threaten any other enemy piece. So as a relative chess beginner, I need more information on why this recommended move was a better choice... That small issue aside, it’s a great app. I’m enjoying enough that I subscribed and excited to increase my knowledge and understanding of chess..Version: 3.9.17 (1)

Fantastic!I haven't played chess for 20 or more years, for some reason I decided I wanted to play again. This is the best of the apps I have tried so far and to be honest I don't see any reason to try any others. The app is nice and easy to use, I've mainly played shorter format games and you are pitched against similar strength players which gives you the chance to improve your or others games. I have also started a slower paced game which seems equally as good. You can even change the board and pieces if you want to. Throughly recommend to all!.Version: 3.6.31

No longer working on iOS (updated)Used to use this app all the time. A couple of years away and I try to use it on iPhone XS iOS 15.4.1 and board not fully showing on screen and it doesn’t accept my first move. Search shows this problem appeared a year ago. **thanks for developer support. I’ve amended the review as they are working to resolve and given a temporary fix..Version: 4.0.1 (5)

Play, learn, practice, be amusedExcellent game play, game management, & much more. Post game analysis ranks each move “excellent/good/inaccuracy/blunder” and identifies what the better move would have been. Track your stats separately different game speeds, and accrue virtual ratings in the lessons and tactics drills. Pick up live timed games instantly, or play “daily” chess with days or weeks to make a move. I Love the daily tactics puzzles. Excellent interactive lessons and drills (e.g. practice every variety of limited-material mate). Watch other games live... easy to peek in on a friend’s games. GM video lectures and other curated material offer solid insights. Regular shows like “Chess Brahs” always a good time. No other chess app comes close to this. Unlimited game play for free; all other main features available in reasonable quantities for free, more than enough to keep a casual player occupied. I upgraded just to get more daily tactics puzzles, and got deeper analysis tools I’m still learning about..Version: 3.7.6

Has bugs since last updateAnalysis tool is broken since the last update. Only works some of the time. Need to go in an out for it to start analysing.Version: 3.8.68

It’s good but just one question…When I looked to download this app, and saw the preview, I saw that it said ‘Take Lessons from Masters’. I was excited. But when made an account and looked through the menu, I couldn’t see any thing with lessons from masters. Even the lessons section doesn’t have it! I’m not sure though as I haven’t become a member yet so I’m not sure if it’s because of that. Thank you!.Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Good. Just something terrible happened.So since I’m new to chess, yesterday I decided to start using ‘lessons’. It asks me to create an account so I did so. But in one of the previous lessons today, it was getting quite tricky, so I decided to use ‘hint’ then ask it to reveal answer. But when I reveal the answer, it says that is wrong and asks me to try again even though it was right. So I tried again, and it done the exact same thing. I clicked ‘retry’, but nothing happened. I have tried this lesson so many times I can’t keep count. I restarted my mobile and tried it again, yet it still doesn’t work. 😒 I’d like you to appeal this ASAP, because I would like to get on the road with this one. Many thanks, Ilikestuff..Version: 4.0.12 (1)

I have ideas…My ideas are to add an extra pass & play but you can create your own pieces and same for the wallpapers. I thought of something that can help you play the game better and know new moves like en passant and etc. My last idea is that you should add a game that can make you play against your favourite sport players like Ronaldo and you can give him a random elo from max- 3200 to minimum -1 and for the other people that you would like to play against. Thanks for looking at this.Version: 4.1.13 (2887)

Back Button Boo BooSo this app is near perfection in my opinion and I think we all know that. One thing just happened to me that made me come and write this review though. I was playing a game that wasn’t terribly serious but I’ve really been trying to work on defeating all the AI. I was doing really well and thought that this might be the game that I got those prized three crowns but it wasn’t to be. The way I was holding my phone made it so that my finger slipped ever so slightly onto the edge of the screen in the top left where the back button was and just like that, my game was wiped. I would very much like to see a feature implemented whereby the app asks us if we are sure about exiting the game. As I’ve said, other than that the app appears to be perfect. Many thanks! :).Version: 3.9.16 (2)

Fantastic Chess appJust brilliant. Used to play chess and then lost interest. Have played 140 games of blitz in the last month and a half. I’d give it six stars if i could..Version: 3.8.88

Great app, would add one thing thoughI’ve never really played chess and am very bad at it, but this is a good application if you are looking to learn. It has lessons (some free ones to learn how the pieces move and paid ones that I haven’t looked at as it is a little too pricey) and you are able to select how long you want the game to be. One problem I continually have is running out of time during the games. Though this is clearly my problem and not the application’s, I’ve also been in quite a few games where my opponent has also not been keeping an eye on the clock and time just expires. I suggest adding a vibration, similar to the standard vibration from moving a piece when certain time intervals are reached such as every minute. I would add this to the settings if there is worry many users would not like this change. Anyways, love the app, great job to those who created and maintain it. Take care to anyone who reads this review..Version: 3.9.0

Teaches chess at any level. The only obstacles are your focus and critical thinking.This app is by far the most comprehensive tool for learning and playing chess. Big thanks to the entire team that designed this platform and keep it going. You have all collectively created the GOAT chess app. I would also like to offer a little bit of feedback. In the game analysis portal, the user interface is a little confusing and difficult to navigate. Particularly how the moves are listed and the computer move(or suggestion) is listed in parentheses directly in front and of your move. It was not originally very clear how to further explore the succession of moves predicted by the computer following a suggested move where the analysis identified a blunder. It would also be amazing to have the option to play the rest of the game out from that suggested move against a rated computer of your choice. Thanks again, You all are awesome.Version: 4.0.4 (2)

This app is like Duolingo for chessAfter using this app for free for a few months, and slowly poking around and seeing how much it has to offer, I feel compelled to leave a review, both to congratulate the developers and to encourage others to use this app. Whether you are a lifelong chess player or just somebody who binged The Queen’s Gambit and wants to give chess a try, this app is well worth your time. This amount of content is astounding, so in addition to playing as much chess as you want with people from all over the world, you suddenly have access to a gazillion ways to learn and improve your game. Videos, drills, and lots more. I can’t believe how much I’ve used this app, and that I have really just scratched the surface, and that it has all been for free (so far… I’m feeling a bit guilty, and I’m going to actually start paying for it). I wish all apps or based on this model. This is like Duolingo for chess..Version: 3.9.17 (1)

Great appMore than just a chess computer everything you need.Version: 3.8.40

Mobile experience stops it getting 5 starsIt’s a great app with loads of extras and a very slick design,. However the experience on the phone is a bit frustrating because it doesn’t put the games requiring moves at the top, even though they go to the top on tablet. If they fixed that I’d be giving it 5 stars..Version: 4.0.12 (1)

Ui needs workAwful UI which often incorrectly drops pieces in the wrong location..Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Great app, occasionally it cheats :)Really enjoyable, like the levels and different modes. Occasionally the app cheats - when you move a pawn from row 2 to row 4 and there’s a piece in position to take it on row 3, it takes the piece. Replaying the move you can see the pawn moved to row 4 and should be safe. It’s happened a few times. But I was going to lose anyway..Version: 3.9.24 (5)

Freezes constantly. And the new fix doesn’t work.After several emails and many “lost” games I still don’t know why some members are dramatically affected by the bug that freezes a player out of a game and then that player loses by being timed out. Or even being declared as having abandoned the game. But the latest bug fix does not work. Maybe time for the platform either to invest heavily or refund the substantial fees it charges..Version: 3.9.16 (2)

App is good but missing some featuresThis app works well (most of the time). There are some oversights in design though. There is no way to control piece speed. I play on my iPad, and the piece movement animations are a bit slow - there should be an option to adjust the speed to move faster or slower. Additionally, when using an iPad + keyboard, the keyboard does not function at all. If I want to step through a game that I played using the arrow keys on my keyboard, this is currently not possible. Another helpful feature might be to add zen mode (hide player ratings, move-list, most unnecessary clutter from the UI when playing an online game). Additionally - I just found a bug that crashes the app: if you try to scroll through the move list (using left / right arrows in the UI) while a modal window (such as you winning an online game) is overlaying the screen - the app will crash after a few moves are scrolled through. (This is on iPad Pro running iOS 13.3.1)..Version: 3.9.30 (2)

Don’t play, buggyIt seemed like an ok app to start off chess with except that I have had no guidance on how to play, or even how the app works. I tried playing against an npc but it was really buggy and wouldn’t let me have my turn, also for a beginner who had no idea how even basic strategy works I was getting thrashed (even though I was on the easiest difficulty). It was 30 minutes of my time that I will never get back. Also a the premium ads were extremely annoying..Version: 4.0.8 (1)

Wonderful app for getting one into the game.I have played around with Chess apps for years. This is the first one that actually gets me going and keeps me coming back. I have bought the diamond level and find it fascinating!!!! I am 61 years old and have never developed a “3 to 4 steps ahead” thinking style. This app is the real deal and is played by some really smart people. I believe it has all of the tools that I need to keep my mind sharp as I enter my senior citizen years!😁 An almost perfect app and I don’t give five stars unless I LOVE an app. (note to developers: there is a fatal bug in the puzzles/learning/puzzles missed section. When you get done with all of the “missed puzzles”, the app goes back to a starting position and then goes back to the home screen. I am using the latest version of the iOS. This has not been a big deal for me because I just start the app up again and it works perfectly but I thought for the sake of tidying up loose ends you might want to look at it. 😊).Version: 3.8.55

Accidentally left 7 day trial running - no regretsThis app has many many great features. The free version is adequate for new players and has some great analysis features available to test or use yourself. The paid version provides even more features and is amazing for anyone wanting to learn more. So much all on the one app..Version: 3.9.25 (6)

Chess rediscovered after a 30 year hiatusI played a bit if chess as a kid and am now coming back to the game. The little tutorials are helpful, but sometimes when being given a puzzle to solve, I am unsure of what I did wrong and I don’t find the controls to be very intuitive (to find out what should have happened). I’m still learning how to get the most out of the app, but in general it has been very good. I still don’t know what to do on solo play. I thought I would be playing the computer. Currently it has a king and a pawn that are both white and I can’t seem to do anything with them. I’ve been playing a game with my brother and I like the way you can take your time and not be pressured. We will probably finish the game in a five day period, but it could be played over months. Thanks for making this app. It is fun and informative..Version: 3.8.55

GlitchWhen i pick a piece up but then return it to its spot it takes my turn away from me.Version: 4.1.8 (2294)

InsightsAlthough this is a phenomenal app both informative and helpful but i feel like analysis and insights can be improved furthermore the reason i wrote this specifically was to see it if would be possible for a feature to be added which would allow you to download all of your games at once? Not everyone has diamond and it’s quite annoying especially if you’ve played thousands of games to download each game one by one.Version: 4.1.21 (3641)

Terrible Update!Really enjoyed playing solo on the previous version but now you are forced to play against silly caricatures!? Really don’t like it and wish I had never updated! Much preferred the simpler style of the old version. I hastily wrote the original review above and with in a few days received a reply from the developer explaining that the original solo gameplay was still available and how to access it. I am super impressed that the time was taken to reply to me and point out my stupidity! Thank you for your prompt help. It is very rare when a developer considers the possibility that some users will not like an update and offer an opportunity to revert back to the original version and so I have changed my rating accordingly to reflect the excellent support received!.Version: 3.9.10 (2)

Amazing appSuperior app to any other to learn how to play chess or to continue playing..Version: 4.1.7 (2133)

Great app but need to change the daily puzzles backI really love this app, it got me back into chess, but I don’t always have time to play. Which is why the daily puzzles are my favourite so I can do them when I have a couple minutes spare. However I don’t like the new update with the coach, hints and solution and how you have to go back a move every time you get it wrong. I would love if the daily puzzles returned to their previous instalment. It would really give me some peace of mind :) Cheers.Version: 3.9.22 (3)

Awesome appThe perfect app for chess playing friends and online quick with many modes. Membership for very useful benefits could be cheaper..Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Awesome awesome awesome!I really recommend this app to anyone who would like to learn how to play chess or get better at chess. The lessons are incredible! They really helped me improve! The only thing is that I have to upgrade to the diamond💎 premium👑 otherwise I will have limited lessons. I mean why don’t you do it all in one membership? Instead of having 3 different ones. Apart from that this app is the absolute best!🤗.Version: 4.0.8 (1)

Game changer!When I first played chess you just had a board and whoever you knew that played chess (in my case just one person who always beat me easily). With this app you can play unlimited games with people of your level and it has lessons, puzzles, game analysis and more. It does not matter if you know how to play or not or maybe you just always thought you sucked but with this app you can really enjoy chess no matter your level. Oh one comment about the AI players to product support team. I was playing the bot Elena. She was doing great, shutting down every move I made. Then I made two stupid mistakes. I think she must have been laughing so bad she over clocked her cpu. I was able to just mop her up. By the end her white bishop was just zooming around attacking nothing (my pieces were mostly on black). So I ended up with 5 queens. Ok that was mean of me. She might need some serious TLC..Version: 3.9.17 (1)

I love it!Best app ever, so many ways to train, upgrade to premium and you will literally be in chess heavens. There are sooo many beneficial features for you to use, unlimited puzzles, drills, lessons, analysis and endgames. Wonderful, I would strongly recommend it to anybody who is looking for a good way to train their chess skills. Diamond account is definitely worth its price!.Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Great App But Has a BugGreat app overall but when you go to play a game it cuts off the last column..Version: 3.9.25 (6)

Best chess app out thereI would really recommend this app to any chess player, whether an absolute beginner or a pro. You can learn lessons, join tournaments, play with people across the planet and add friends, do puzzles, play against a robot with customizable ability, chat to people during the match and so on. I’ve downloaded countless chess apps in the past and this one is by far the best! Would really recommend . I can’t think of a problem with it 😂. There are no adds and it is absolutely free. After finishing a game you can do a game analysis where a computer tells you how to improve, and you can subscribe to get more features. You can even watch live chess matches with world champions! Would definitely recommend this..Version: 3.8.72

Social upgrade & Design simplification (NEEDED)I want to offer simple design improvements that would engage users to a whole other level. This is so far a chess app / website that allows you to just play chess but severely lacks an actual chess community to the degree in which I see its potential. We want to find professional players / engage and keep up with chess news. People don’t want to read articles that’s boring. When I go to a professional chess players page all I see is comment spam from random people and no actual comments or video updates from the chess player them self. It needs to have Facebook comment design prioritizing the users comments at the top and then the most like comments after. They should also be able to add photos that could be commented on and liked. Secondly there are SO MANY sections that are not grouped up accordingly. People love simplicity. There should be a (Play) (Learn) (Watch) (News). Instead, all the categories that should be located inside each drop box are scattered outside these categories and are extremely ugly and overwhelming. Besides that to somehow promote twitch engagement would be huge and lastly, getting borders for your advertisements would help you look like s more high quality website. I just love chess so much and this app. I want this app to be successful and the chess community to grow..Version: 3.7.6

The reason why you going to end up getting this app.Love it, simply the best option. It’s free, it’s simple and easy to navigate-VERY user friendly! Your exposed to and have a wealth of knowledge and real world experience playing other players from the introductory rated player to the 1300 level serious amateurs to the guys well above that that obviously didn’t get there by accident. Also, it’s FREE! A analysis is offered that literally makes every game that you play a valuable learning experience, bc we don’t learn as much with our successes as we do with our failures and that transforms your failure and with a little effort and consistent practice it becomes the source of your strength.., I love this app and their is no comparison I’ve probably spent more hours logged in on this app then all the hours on all the other apps combined and if you took that by two I’d still have more time spent playing chess on this app! 🤯lol.Version: 3.8.88

Ive been playing for 10 minutes and already found a serious bugThe game so far has been great i just recently got back into playing chess so it is good to have one i can play on the go at all times and the ai that changes depending on how well you play is great. I have however found a game breaking bug in my second game against the bot where if the pawn gets to the end of the board you can get the queen back but the problem is if you get another pawn you are able to get multiple queens on the board. A fix may be necessary quite quickly especially if this is possible in multiplayer.Version: 3.9.23 (1)

Time wastersThis is a very good site but it has one major problem, time wasters people who abandon games are never punished. Surely people who are clever enough to create a site as good as this ought to be able to create a system where time wasters and all other players get ratings for sportsmanship etc, where we ought to be able to look at the rating of people we play and rate them ourself. When we report a player we ought to be able to see what action has been taken and get a proper report back. Thank you S Bates Australia.Version: 3.8.72

Mon Soon with thanksGreat chess apps featuring reliability, variety, and depth of information for improving your chess skills. Plenty of opponents, and the search for them is very rapid. There is no pressure to go premium, but the services provided for free at the entry level certainly warrants it. A thumbs up to the developers for sharing such an enjoyable gift. Many thanks again..Version: 3.9.10 (2)

Mostly goodI can’t seem to find a way to view my tournaments, team matches, vote chess and forums. It could be buried in the app, but then that means an interface change is needed.Version: 3.6.31

My best loving App...and most used on my iPhone.I had this on all my iPhones....phones changed over the years but not this app. Always best...not limited even if it’s free. Never tried to sell!.Version: 3.8.72

Not too bad, though frustrating.A pretty good app, though I do find it very frustrating that it occasionally boots me off and won't allow me to reconnect before time runs out. Also I wish punitive action could be taken against people who abort games before they have got started. It has this annoying habit of disconnecting itself even when played on a 4G phone. I have lost quite a few games this way, as it disconnects itself and then doesn’t reconnect before the end of the game, which is INFURIATING! This is why I cannot give it more than 3 stars.

Internet dropping gets you spoilsport ratingIf games freeze (happens quite often - in fact too often to make the game enjoyable recently) or the internet drops then you will through no fault of your own be called a spoilsport and not able to play in tournaments. Far from it being the player at fault it’s the blooming useless app. This is a recent development so now going to get rid of this RUBBISH AND UNRELIABLE GAME Update- received excuses for freezing games but still classed as spoilsport and not able to enter tournaments -January 8th.Version: 3.9.16 (2)

Great app but also agree about time wastersAlso agree about the time wasters comment. Big fan of this app and it’s deserving of 5 stars, still think it needs to deal with time wasters as well. I’ve been in a couple of team and individual comps now where I’ve had to wait literally months for players, usually who have only played for a few months, go on break and hold the whole thing up. This is a very smart app and needs to be smart enough to avoid this situation..Version: 3.8.86

Somebody call me a therapistMy friend won’t stop beating me. So humbling. I showed him the app last night. I cannot win. Kill me..Version: 4.1.21 (3641)

Works with older iOS versionsI have the iPhone 6 and sadly I can't download many apps on the store but this app works very well on older phones! Anyhow, if you have an account doing tactics and daily puzzles is more easier and intuitive on the phone rather then PC, plus the mobility of it and all. If you love playing chess, this app is defiantly for you!.Version: 3.8.14

Revised reviewI had previously had a lot of bad experiences with dropouts during timed games which caused me a great deal of frustration. It seems these problems for the most part have been resolved and therefore warrants a retraction of my earlier scathing review. I find the app to be a great tool for improving your game play and really love the live play against international opponents such a valuable resource that’s taken my game to another level with a wealth of puzzles and tournaments etc it’s the best chess app I’ve experienced and highly recommend. I am happy to take up another subscription as you have obviously listened and addressed my concerns Great job to all.Version: 3.9.20 (2)

Can you please update app for Apple Watch 2Great app. Please fix Apple Watch app Was working well now with iOS 11. Latest one of 11. It have a connection problem and won’t know you have a game going on. Please fix. Cheers and happy new year Please bring The Australian yearly membership price down. Cheers 👍🏻 I’m a diamond membership what’s difference between that and gold ?.Version: 3.7.8

Fantastic Chess AppThis is an excellent App. The interface is very good. When you begin to explore the App fully you will be very pleasantly surprised by how much is there. You can play in forums or just against the computer. Great Videos and training are also included. My favourite activity is the rated problems which are great for improving tactics and improving forward thinking. IMHO:To get the very most from the app you need to upgrade to 1 of the paid app options, but there is still plenty to be gained from the free app..Version: 3.9.24 (5) appLove the app. I’d like to see them implement a board where players can play Grand Chess or Capablanca Chess or other variants. It would add to further exploration of this great game. Also, lessons and interactions with chess masters from all over the world are a great resource to improve one’s skill and are second to no other chess app that I’ve seen..Version: 3.8.72

A Must HaveI honestly can’t recommend this chess app enough. Perfectly crafted, clean and has so many modes and features from puzzles to online lobbies and lessons with videos. Perfect to have on the iPad or tablet to learn, practise and have some fun playing chess… honestly just a must have..Version: 4.1.6 (2119)
