No Time Control Delay for 30min Games I love the app, but there's one bug. There should be a 5 second delay for each time setting. Without one, you have little time to think even when your position is completely winning. I use this app to practice for tournaments and games are usually much longer than 30 minutes. Still, you usually have 5 seconds before your time starts, that way, you won't lose on time if you have a clear Mate in 3 but you have 4 seconds total left to move and then confirm each of your moves.
Best available multi-player chess game This is the best multi-player online chess game available for any platform. Great learning tools and lessons to sharpen your skills as well as video tutorials to quickly make you a better player. Premium membership is a bit costly but worth it if you are just starting out. There are a few bugs and glitches that don't really affect game play. Because of the bugs I will rate 4 stars. Great overall chess game.
Constant sound issues. I have had 3 different phones whilst I've used this app ( Nexus 5 and 6 and a Samsung S7 Edge ) and the sound issues are the same with each phone, suggesting that it's the app. When my opponent makes their move, my phone(s) just vibrates without making a sound. And yes; the settings are correct.
I love this chess app but since the last update im having a hard time waiting for matchmaking. The appliction keep searching amd its time consuming! Pls. Kindly fix it. Just like before, flawless!
Best chess app... Period Hands down where to be if you want a quality game with a huge player base. Great tools to learn from. My rating has gone from around 1200 to 1600 ish over the last few years.
Best app out there Great for online and offline use. Occasionally annoying with the baity newsletters (that only show half a video unless you're a paying member), but it's free and is definitely the result of a community that loves chess. I'd also suggest changing how you have to "play against the computer" to get to 1v1 offline, but that's minor.
