    Solid chess app best by far no complaints just some suggestions. Could you add a friend list and maybe a way of creating a tournament? Thanks for this great app.

    Though this app crashes on me from time to time, it's fantastic design is enough to overlook the occasional crash. After all, you have to see the bootup screen either way. Works like a charm, easy to learn, and replays of your games.

    Never locks up, very responsive, easy to start games with people and supports all rules. (Although my son will argue... he thinks it cheats because he can't beat me.)

    The name is silly but the app is pretty darn good. Been playing my friends on iOS. It does force close on occasion (which seems to kill push notifications) but I'm not able to reproduce. But good otherwise. I haven't had any games vanish or anything. // e
