I've had this chess game for years. I play it everytime I have down time. I currently play at level 10. All the improvements are great, however they have caused glitches in the program. I own the note 10+ & can't complete a game now. You can hear the pieces moving but the game continually freezes. It flickers and freezes continually. Very aggravating, if I could return to the previous version I would in a heart beat....

Great Little Chess App. I've enjoyed it for years. The look or skins are great IMO. Functionality and options are perfect for me. I'm an ok player just getting back into the game and I think this app definitely helps hone my skills. Just really wish I could pay the dev to get an add free version. ** Wow, Super Thank you for the fast response in just a couple of hours. I'll upgrade asap. 👍

Thank you for your feedback. For the ad free version, please search "AI Factory Chess Pro" in the app store. It installs as a separate app and you can export stats (from Statistics screen) + any saved games (from Load Saved Games screen) in free version and import them to the paid version to carry over progress.

Used to work. Had this on every android device since 2015. Now it crashes every time a press play. Crashes 4 or 5 times before it will start. Crashes during play sometimes too. Doesn't crash ever if data or wifi is off. I think it has something to do with the ads. Also, many ads have a 30 second timer that takes 45 seconds to complete. I will never buy and product advertised on this app. Update 7/29/21. Ads cause the screen to go black and freeze the phone. Completely unusable.
