This game is amazing!

I live in the city and when I travel, I have a few minutes to spare. This is worth it!

App freezes a lot

This app is nice but it freezes a lot , especially when you are playing blitz . It’s frustrating because the games are timed and when if it freezes you loose a lot of time. It’s still full of bugs. It also adds time to your opponent when nearing time expiration . Just one of the frustrating things about this app
