    It's great to play correspondence chess by phone! You can learn a great deal about strategy and openings by playing hard on this app. Find out why a move you like is good - or bad - by playing out lines. Consult opening and endgame manuals within the four-day time limit. Four days per move is fantastic: It's not postal correspondence chess, but this isn't ICC or, either. The only problem I've encountered is lose-quitters, who play one move every three amd a half days in a dead-lost position; but I can live with that. This is a great app as-is, there are some very strong players here, and I hope to see YOU here!
