Mechanically, a great app. Easy to use. Informative, engaging. Sometimes the app causes issues with the rest of my phone, such as occasionally causing pop-up menus to not pop-up, or the keyboard not to come up when clicking on a text box. Doesn't happen often, and can be, if only temporarily, remedied by restarting ones phone. Unfortunately, closing the app, forcing it to stop operating in the background, does not fix the problem when it comes up.

Hi There
March 5, 2023
It's so fun to play and I'm extremely happy every time I place this. I lost too many elo, well there's a reason why bots exist. the only thing I don't like is it doesn't have as many features as the browser version. Edit: I forgot about pre moves. It's good and fun but it's hard to click off of no without accidentally moving your queen to a vulnerable spot. Change it to where you can press something on your screen. And for browser, make it to where a key stops the pre move (ex: tab or enter)

Hello! To avoid piece misplacements you can enable the option "Confirm each move" in Settings--Live Chess. That way you can make a move on the board and confirm it with a checkmark, or you can tap the X to take back the move. Please write to us at for assistance if needed.

I'm really enjoying this app a lot. Love the different themes & the stats on how you play. But the level ratings don't really matter because if you screw up, they screw up and if you make a best move, so do they. They have a mode specifically for adjusting the game to your level so I don't know why the beginning, intermediate, advanced, etc. do that as well. Other than that, it's good! I would recommend it!

Thank you for this feedback! Certain computer bots are adaptive so they're difficulty and style adjusts as you play, however other bots remain consistent in this regard. Please write to us at for assistance with the app if needed. We're here to help!
