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
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...
The app is OK but you could improve it by making the board bigger in landscape mode. And please, please bring an option to change the notation background color to other than white because it's hard to play chess with a flashlight in your eyes all the time. Thanks!
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.
Frustrating Whenever Disconnects You can get disconnected from the server and there is no alert from the app. You think your opponent is just taking time. No way to reconnect easily either. You end up losing rating points in won positions too many times. Also, server slows down at times. I'm on a 10Mbps Connection. Used to be an occasional occurrence but now it's several games per session. Very frustrating.
Crashes frequently on Samsung Galaxy 5 Decent interface, but very unstable. I have tried all the recommended fixes to no avail. (Upgrade O/S, delete reinstall app, reatart phone, clear browswer cache, delete SD card databases) nothing seems to help. Very frustrating when it crashes at a critical point on a game. When it actually works right- it is great.
