    For the wonderful problems, to play online (I use FICS), loading PGN files and playing against the engine I heartily recommend this app.

    Great app. Add stats & captured pieces option & it'd be PERFECTION!! I think most people would prefer the option of seeing the pieces that have been captured..not the point differential. Makes it more like you're actually playing on a board! THANKS!

    Too bad, it was a good app, one of the few that does freechess.org. Says it needs it to get device ID, for playing as Guest on FICS, but any UUID scheme would work for this, or just accepting the server assigned guest ID (which is already unique)

    Can't setup board with blacks making the first move.
