Review from Carl Booth
Bad connection NEEDS to improve the connection. I've lost soooo many games through disconnecting even with a strong 3g or higher signal, reducing my rating by a considerable amount. Its a great site but this app is letting it down purely because of the connection.
Server often down or busy Game of chess is simply awesome. Server infrastructure supporting this app sucks big time. Pay for subscription? For this? Really!? Pay to not play, but instead to deal witb "live connection" issues constantly? You can't be serious. How about you make sure you're online 100℅ first? I know I am, as I'm posting this message right now.
Great, but there's an issue Sometime back, a user cursed me through a private message just because he lost on time which I deleted later, on my laptop. Now the problem is that, that message did not get removed from my phone app. When I tap at it, it says Error: Resource Not Found. Please fix this.
Unexpectedly delete account with no explanation I like the app. But one day I tried to log in and I received the message "your account has been disabled". Literally no explanation as to why and there is no way to get it restored. I've even attempted to create new accounts using different email addresses, and each time, the account gets disabled
Recent update broke clock After the latest update, the clock logic now frequently costs me the game. I will have 15 seconds, and be waiting for my opponent to move, when it suddenly says that I timed out. Or I will lose 3 seconds every turn before it even lets me move. Unplayable.
Notifications stopped working Notifications just stopped working. I have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, still i get no notifications. Also, for some odd reason, chat messages randomly switch from bottom to top to top to bottom. Frustrating!
Nice engine. But some bugs In note 3, playing against human opponent and turing the phone orientation from protrait mode to landscape causes the progessing match to disappear and bring the analysis of the last problem match.
