Others said it but the interface is horrible. But I guess if you want to play online FIDE games then it will do the job. I didn’t get a FIDE ID tho. I just joined and played a game to try it. There are so many other better chess apps that I don’t know why you’d bother. It seems to me that they aren’t serious about having an online app of this is the best they can do.

Coming along quite nicely

Nice clean interface, very easy to use and syncs thoroughly with your fide online arena account! This app will be the premiere chess app in 2 or 3 years provided they keep improving upon it.


Profile photo doesn’t show up in the game

Though I use this app for FIDE games, the annoying thing is that I uploaded my own photo, yet it doesn’t show up during the game! The only thing that shows is the original avatar that came when I first signed up! Fix this please!!!!
