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
This app is really cool. You can play an unlimited amount of games at the same time and send messages back and forth with any players. Plus you have plenty of time to reply if you have a busy schedule. I wish the app could keep stored ALL of the games we've played. I don't see my older games. I have some great games I've lost. But if I have to choose between a 4 or 5 rating, I'd round it off to 5. Great app overall.
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?
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.
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.
