Ratings and ReviewsSee All
We use iMessage for everything from keeping up with family news to sending stickers to our significant others. Sometimes, though, we just want to duke it out with knights and kings on the chessboard. What makes Checkmate so great—aside from its super-intuitive interface—is the way we can chat with (and smack-talk) as we play... or take as much time as we need to contemplate our next move.
Good, but can be improved
This is a nice app, but u can't choose how to promote. It automatically gives a queen. Also sometimes if you move a rook in a certain way it says that you castled. Small errors that, if fixed, could make a decent app better!
Many small problems
It's annoying that there are so many functions missing, like the option to resign or undo.
