I'm not a Doctor but

Trust me when I say this is one of the three best online chess apps for iPhone. You can get a game like right now. I'm not a GM, but I found the play level to be real strong. Simple chess will scratch your chess itch.

Lacks time stamp that works

This app was worse but they never fixed the time stamp. Controls are to small and they should have a sound when people disconnect. As a guest there are 50% cheaters!
