5.0 out of 5 stars The DEFINITIVE chess app! December 21, 2012
If you have to choose only one chess app, let this be your choice. The developer is super responsive, and the competition is top notch. It has all the features you can want and all concerns are addressed promptly. My game has improved tremendously in the past 2 months by using this app everyday!

4.0 out of 5 stars great way to find worthy chess opponents December 27, 2013
By 7-Fold
I like this app a lot. It offers a wide range of players to choose from, including some that must be masters. You can play ranked games or games just for fun. Most players will make a move in the 48-hour window. If they don't, you can force them to resign. Sometimes you can play in real time. The app pings you when it is your turn. The only complaint I have is that it crashes sometimes, but otherwise I recommend it highly.

Excellent app. Provides exactly what was sought for convenience and easiness. Only improvement might be suggested lives, but then again other applications can do that and it might taint quicker games here.

I can beat it, though I still can't understand why John Kerry and other members of congress can't tell us what they know about some far off land.

It's not a bad app. I wish it had a few more options like player search etc. The developer though is awesome. If I have had any trouble he is very helpful and responsive.

Used this for a while until I lost too many games in a row against a friend and gave up. It's what you would expect from a chess app.

3.0 out of 5 stars Chess Game
I got this for my Kindle Fire, I tried it once and decided I paid what it was worth - NOTHING. It did not folloow the chess rules as I know them,but is a time waster.
