Awesome Chess

I hate this app for two reasons: 1. All my mates wants a little play with my iPhone, but when they start playing Chess Genius they won't give it back; 2. The program beats me.

Seriously, this app rocks. It's the strongest chess program I've ever used at its higher levels and is great for novices too. It's easily worth the double the money, especially as it keeps the mother-in-law quiet for hours!

note to the creators of the game.

!/ the design and look of the games are probbebly the best looking on iphone.
2/ there is a sirious faul in the rules of the game after i put a king into chesck a few mover later he is able to castle, and if you'r a chessmaster as I am this is a serious flaw so i hope to creators of this app will take this seriously and correct on a update.
1/ anyway after all that the game is well worth buying.
hopeffuly the creator will upate the problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2/ hint hint to the maker could you make this an onle play function in some fucher updates so please can you correct this fault in the games as sopon as possible.
Thank you.

Excellent Chess

I have played with many chess computer programmes. This one has been the best. The layout of the board is perfect. The best feature is that this programme let's you take back any number of moves, so it is a great learning tool. There are a number of skill levels, so you can progress up the ladder slowly. I am a total chess addict again.
I would rate this application five stars.
