Simple and Straightforward Convinced by the free version, I bought the full version to support the developer and get rid of advertisement. It was very easy to log in with my former free account and all my previous records (ranking and games) were immediately available. Best app for playing against humans with same level or with friends. I just wish the board would better refresh after a move. Quite often you have to get back to the menu and load the game again to refresh which is not convenient. Should it be fixed I would rate 5☆
It used to work This used to be a great app. I love playing chess, but since 4 months ago, this app crashes constantly. I have emailed the developer, but he never responds back to my emails. Is there a chance I can get a refund? August 14, 2014 ****update***** after the update, it now works as before. best chess app ever
Best way to play correspondence chess on a phone Red Hot Pawn have an android app but it's terrible. Gameknot have a mobile site but it's really slow. By contrast Chess by Post is a pleasure to use. I would give it 5 stars if all the content fit on my Samsung Galaxy Pocket's screen.
Needs a report feature The app is excellent but currently open to abuse. I currently have a game against someone who is lost but taking five days for each move, while spamming me with abusive messages on the chat. Can there be either a report feature or the option to turn off chat for a specific game?
This has been the best chess application that I've found. I spent nearly three months trying different ones, and web based gaming platforms. I love the cross-platform abilities, because I'm able to play with all my friends regardless of whether they are on android, ios, or Windows.
Great app Best correspondence chess app out there. Free one is good but upgraded solely to support developer. App is great - ranked games, friendlies, make and save notes, chat if you want to. Don't get notifications on tablet (nexus 7) it this is minor issue as also on phone. Would be good if tablet version could do landscape with notes editable next to board.
Attempting to fix crashes seen by some users when moving pieces on the board view.
Best online correspondence (postal) chess app, start playing with your friends!
