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.
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.
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.
No problems originally, but as of late I've been receiving no notifications for when its my turn to move. No vibration, no audiable, no chess piece on the notification bar. I tried turning my phone off then on and tried force stopping to app. It works sometimes but most times it doesn't.
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!
