Best chess app out there

I would really recommend this app to any chess player, whether an absolute beginner or a pro. You can learn lessons, join tournaments, play with people across the planet and add friends, do puzzles, play against a robot with customizable ability, chat to people during the match and so on. I’ve downloaded countless chess apps in the past and this one is by far the best! Would really recommend . I can’t think of a problem with it 😂. There are no adds and it is absolutely free. After finishing a game you can do a game analysis where a computer tells you how to improve, and you can subscribe to get more features. You can even watch live chess matches with world champions! Would definitely recommend this.

Good app but has some annoying features in blitz

A good app if you like chess rather like the puzzles there alway updating.

But if you like blitz games there seems to be a lag in pre set moves when your opponent makes moves so it can wast a couple seconds re setting the move (annoying in a blitz game)

Also the placement of buttons can be annoying mainly the button that allows you to look back on previous moves and the confirmation button of your current move are in the same place so when trying to execute a move you accidentally press the back button and then have to press the forward button, set your move again and it can just wast a lot of time from the placement of 2 button in the same place I found a lot of people that really dislike this one.

It sounds as though your application may be experiencing a glitch due to data corruption that is causing it to lag during games with a shorter time control. I would suggest you reinstall the application using the following steps to check if that resolves the issue:

*Please note: If you have an iOS below 11.0, please do not use these steps as you will not be able to reinstall the app on your device. You can check your version by following these steps: Also, this will install the newest version of the application, in which there are some changes to certain features like lessons.*
Press your finger on the application icon until it begins to "wiggle."
Click on the x in the top right of the app.
Reinstall from app store.

As for the issue with the confirm button for pre-moves, it sounds like you prefer to have both "Confirm Each Move" and "Pre-Moves" enabled simultaneously? It might be faster if you disabled the confirm move button from our "Live Chess" in "Settings" in the application main menu. However, I understand if actually you like to use both of these features so that you can plan a move in advance, but also make sure you approve it before it is submitted. Would you recommend we put the submit button on the top of the screen?

If the problem with lag persists, or if you have any questions or other suggestions, please let me know here or at

Thank you!

I haven't played chess for 20 or more years, for some reason I decided I wanted to play again. This is the best of the apps I have tried so far and to be honest I don't see any reason to try any others. The app is nice and easy to use, I've mainly played shorter format games and you are pitched against similar strength players which gives you the chance to improve your or others games. I have also started a slower paced game which seems equally as good. You can even change the board and pieces if you want to. Throughly recommend to all!
