I've played thousands of online blitz games via this interface, however the recent updates introduced major connectivity issues like frequent connection drops, freezing console mode, loosing the premove ability, and doesn't closes the connection on exit. And happened that displayed 'game drawn' by repetition, then in the console I realised I lost on time as I didn't move after it displayed the draw. Very misleading.
Excellent chess app. Have installed it on all my devices. Only gripe is that when moving back/forward through games, the steps are full white+black moves and not individual tempi, which makes analysis quite difficult.
Nexus 6 running Android 7.0. Clock keeps running even after opponent disconnects & forfeits the game leaving you to waste your time alone. Also, constance "network connection" failures mean lost games.
Amazing.. Try it. Adds are minimum .
Love this app
chess wise it has all features. opens pgn. good ai. good analysis. chess board is also good. what it lacks is if you are chatty person. the chat part of the app is totally bad. so hard to move from one chat channel to other and if you are playing a game it is even more hard. the dev should know when playing online your opponent is not always a fast player. then while he makes a move you want to goto console window or chat window but s/he made it so complex to goto chat window/console. also you need interface implemented features like censor on interface instead of server cos server has limited censor slots and the font and colors and theme and emojis and bcs sounds is not there. i dont like black background and white text. but dev is active so i think it will improve later on
