5/16/2013Dropped to 3 stars. Needs to be updated for HD graphics on the Lumia 920.
5/7/2013Fabulous app. Love it and play all the time.
4/18/2013Best of the Chess apps for Windows Phone. Try before you buy with the free ad supported version. Once you are convinced, come back and pony up your three bucks to support devs that make apps that aren't total ****.
4/5/2013Wish I could mock play beyond the current move. And a live tile with the latest chess board snapshots would be killer!
4/5/2013Great app. Should have an option for blitz mode.
3/27/2013I enjoy this chess app. I play with my friends and they also like it. I have been using thus since one month and so far I did not find any issues or bugs. It allows us to play with ranked players and depending on our wins, the app matches harder players.
3/25/2013Best chess app out there!!
3/22/2013Very well designed.
