    Best chess app there is. Would be a great idea to have a board option that has chess notation. Take the app to another level and help players learn more about this wonderful game.

    Best chess app I have seen

    This is a wonder app. Clean, simple, interface and very easy to use. The texting feature is very nicely implemented. I started with the free app and the adds were not intrusive. I bought the app because I liked it so much. I keep 8-15 games going at a time. The app does make some pretty bad moves from time to time but I've done some trouble-shooting and I've determined it makes bad moves only when I tell it to do so. My only request would be to have perhaps an optional "flag" indicator to denote each players country of origin. It's enjoyable playing people from around the world. Well done and keep up the good work.

    Love it, just wished there was some games on the clock and sound effects options. Nonetheless it is very solid for online turn based chess. Great job Jeff!
