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.

    Total waste of our time. Time given per move is 5 days. Please don't play this game with this app. Zero ratings

  • by Allan Victor 11/14/2014
    Please update the app,add timer since most of my losing opponest when they see they are losing the make moves only before their game expires all the time. By this they irritate me to use abusive language

    Always works. Only thing that might be better is allowing for mutually agreed upon undo of a mistake move.
