  • Must watch chess

    A great place to learn and play
  • A lot of Cheaters

    By Jazzycapr
    I love this app but unfortunately a lot of players cheat. The have some type of program that stops the game if you are winning/ have won. The only way to reset is to uninstall the app and download it again. I’ve had to go through that process several times. I love the app but this is probably going to make me not play anymore. You win some and you lose some, it’s that simple. I hate those dirty rotten sore losers tho 😂
  • Thank you

    Well done
  • Laggy trash/buggy trash!

    By Gregg Lev
    I can guarantee you that your devs are not “top notch” as you say except perhaps for the possibility that somehow all these bugs are actually a result of poorly implemented and unstable infrastructure. This is coming from someone who worked at Facebook, got multiple google offers, and codes daily for one of the most coveted tech companies in the world. Your app hangs more than any beta version toy I’ve ever encountered. Assuming an actual network hiccup is the result for your ubiquitous network tailspins, the simple fact is that your apps’ inability to recover from said hiccup and not trash the entire game is ABYSMAL. you attempt to charge for an inferior product. Hire some seasoned iOS testers and optimize for LTE /cellular data. Your skimping here is the reason many of us will never pay for this app.. penny wise pound foolish is how it goes I believe. Another bug: threefold repetition draw is broken. Counting to three is hard isn’t it?! You just forced a draw on two moves repeated, I verified it on the PGN which I attempted to copy here to prove it but was unable. Other times I’ve seen 5 repeated moves not force a draw. Seriously, what is wrong with you people? Don’t respond, I’m not interested in hearing another faux-concern email, you haven’t fixed bugs that I spent a long time explaining three years ago, I have zero faith in your interest or ability to fix them now, I’m simply venting at the egregious bugs. It’s not the network, it’s you. It’s not the network, it’s you! It’s not the network it’s you!!!! Sincerely, a sysadmin. Forcing a draw by repetition works inconsistently. That makes no sense, I don’t know how you even get a bug like that. Making up the time and adding back to the clock makes NO SENSE in blitz chess. You should NOT be asking for money for this broken software!! There are tons of more useful stable projects for free on GitHub, fix your app!! I’m sure I’ll get another thoughtful response about how you’d appreciate a formal bug report, but I find bug reports on your website complaining about the same stuff 3-4 YEARS ago! Why would I believe you when you act like you value this feedback when you clearly do not or cannot act on the information I provide? More broken stuff: Someone requests a rematch after I’ve left the board, accepting hangs the app. This is bad programming, point blank. FIX PREMOVES. They don’t work. God, it seems so simple, how did you botch premoves?! Your network outage issue is 100 percent you and nothing to do with the network fluctuations you claim. I just lost all network in a one minute game only on your app, I had all of my bars. Your iOS developers have failed. I cannot express to your iOS developers how bad a job I believe they’ve done with this app. This is the only iOS app I’ve ever seen in my 12 years of using an iPhone that doesn’t always quit when you swipe it out. Often I come back to a frozen image of the last screen and the app has not restarted. Premoves often don’t work. I don’t think there is any aspect of this game that doesn’t have visible bugs. If there is any app that I would say is a complete failure and waste of time, it’s this one. The crappy kids games that my five year old play seem to be better software specimens. This is a complete and utter failure. The lag is unplayable and unpredictable, not seeming related to my internet connectivity. Boo. I boo you and all your employees. Insult to injury is that your claim to fix it is to pay and get the ad-free version which I know first-hand is also laggy. Just boo.
  • Strategy at you fingertips

    By NeoSartre
    Great app for actually playing with people around the world. I win and I lose. The idea is to play. And that is learning. Bobby Fishers book is great but experience is better. Thank you guys and gals!
  • This app is so laggy
