    This used to be a great app. I love playing chess, but since 4 months ago, this app crashes constantly. I have emailed the developer, but he never responds back to my emails. Is there a chance I can get a refund?

    This is a great way to play chess. I play ranked games against random people from around the world and work my way up the rankings, and also play unranked games against a group of friends for bragging rights! :-) Only problem is, I can end up playing about 5 games at once, which gets confusing - but Chess by Post has the answer to that too - you can make notes on each game, rewind through the game

    My only wish is for it to work in landscape mode.

    Suggestion: should be possible to export game to clipboard.
