Horrific server!!

Time stamp is does NOT work! Steals time EVERY GAME! The connect dots tell you how much time server will take from you! If you start a 5 minute game with one dot, you will lose at least three minutes and your opponent will get your stolen time added to there clock! STOP DO NOT SUPPORT THIS APP!!!!! Four star rating is a lie! They delete bad ratings!!! This is from france and they hate Americans, so, if you play from America they will down grade your connection. When I deside to play I will cheat every guest game!

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.
