Chess by post is the only cross-platform chess game that keeps track of your skill level and always matches you against players of similar ability to your own.  And since it is available for iPhone, Android, Windows Phones, and Windows 8 PCs, you can play your friends no matter what type of phone or device they have.

Play correspondence chess with real people online! Challenge your friends to friendly games or play ranked matches against random opponents of similar skill levels. Play as many simultaneous games as you want!

Improve your ranking by playing ranked games against comparable opponents. Skill ranking updates using the classic Elo rating system to adjust your rank when you win or lose. A leaderboard view shows you how you compare to the top players.

Chess By Post is perfect for players of all skill levels because your matched opponent's skill level will be adapted based on your own skill level.

Pin the app to your home screen and push notifications will let you know when you have moves waiting! 

Use the move planner to try out strategies before submitting your move.

Customize the board color to be wood, green, blue, red or gray.  

Chat with your opponents using the in-game message board.  

Tap on any opponent's name to see your all-time  head-to-head stats.  

Create a local hand-off game and play your friend by passing the phone back and forth.

    This app works very well

    I would give this game 0 stars if I could. Most players who are losing will stop making moves or take a long time (days even) to make a move just so you forget that you are playing the game. They will only move when they are about to forfeit just so that when you do forget about the game, you will end up forfeiting instead. Not everyone is has the time to babysit a chess match for several days to ensure that your opponent will not stoop to such low tactics.

    This app is great. The cross platform lets me play with my friends. I've only experienced one minor bug as well. The game should have a handbook or rule set. I personally like to know whether empasse is here or not instead of finding out in game
