Review from Javier Gil
Annoying bug The latest versions have this bug that if you're watching a live game from move 1, the game is switched to the last move played even if the players haven't made a move in 2 hours, really horrible. Very limited compared to the desktop version. Long way to go....
Nice Very good for chess lovers. The advantage of watching the international tournaments on app is a bonus. Much comfortable than watching on browser. However, please add SUBMIT button for a move to complete. On Moto E, mistakenly I move piece to wrong house because of hand movement. Then had to resign. Thanks and Regards.
No customer service No way to report players with cheater programs. And there are alot. They operate unchecked. The most popular is when they stop playing the game and let the clock run out, then the score pops up with you as the loser? Connection remains good, chat, stats, and all other functions are online. Cheat program is the only possibility. There is no customer service or recourse.
That is ripoff 1.You cannot play with your friends. 2. You cannot pause a watched game. Well these are the main thing to pay for a chess software right?! Unless you would play with a computer... 12$ for a fake software...
Awful Drops the connection or will not connect. You will see dumb messages such as THE SOCKET IS NOT CONNECTED Chess. Com is far superior IMO
No captured material display, no opponent info, no Claim Win on Disconnect, no way to watch other games, and the list goes on. But worst of all, no meaningful updates in the year I've used this. Not recommended; especially considering it's a paid app. EDIT: Would now give this zero stars, if I could. No updates in over two years!
Not that great compared to the competition My previous review was pretty harsh. I am still not a fan of this app in comparison to others out there in terms of features. The competition just blows this one out of the water. But if you own a Chessbase product there is no comparison to the quality of their products. Except the Android app. This app needs a major overhaul so I am sticking to playing on the playchess server via the software on my computer which is good but bad if you want to play while on the go :( please update!!!!
