Solid 4 out 5 stars. Would rate a perfect 5 if you guys can fix the buggy controls. Sometimes I'll be in a match and it won't let me click anything or even move my peices! I have to resign by force closing the app. Also, when trying to start a new match, it simply won't let you, to fix you have to close the app and reopen it until it works. I love the app though but please try fixing these issues.
WHY THE HELL HAS THE THEME STRAUNTON BEEN CHANGED TO 2D. I LOVED IT 3D WAY. MADE ME FELT CLASSIC. KINDLY CHANGE BACK PLEASE OR ELSE I'LL REALLY BE DISAPPOINTED DESPITE GIVING 5 STAR RATING AND RECOMMENDING TO GOD KNOWS HOW MANY FRIENDS.
Great app, been using it for over 7 years to play daily chess. Love it so much. I realized years ago that playing chess everyday increased my problem solving abilities in all areas of life, not just paying chess. Wouldn't give it up for anything. There's a bug in the app, if someone sends you a draw offer and you ignore it, the draw offer won't disappear from your alerts panel. You'll have to uninstall the app to get rid of the annoying alert.
Game aborts 5 times at least before they give you an actual opponent to play against to make it look like there are more users. 90% of the time on the app, the screen shows BUY PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP. Bro if I would've wanted to I'd buy it myself.
Great application. The only one thing that is annoying is that after you watch a game and it ends, the same players might start a new game and you may carry on viewing - the problem I have is when the phone goes to sleep and you turn it on again that current game disappears and you have to go and search it again within the watch tab. I would say the application if opened should not be as an "inactive app" to the android phone.
Buggy fwd and back buttons in Analysis mode. Staunton Theme re-downloads from time to time. Sucks. Draw request declined but still notification persists after game won. Thankfully I had a backup of an earlier version which works fine. Uninstalled the recent version and installed the earlier one. 3/5 till sorted :(
