Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyable and easy on the eyes
This is the only chess app that I found for the iPad where the black & white pieces are correctly oriented when 2 people to play. 👍👍
A friend and I play every week using this app. We tried several others, but this one we like the best.
Great app! It has a very aesthetic and simple theme but includes everything you could want, matchmaking, puzzles, private rooms for playing friends, and more! Me and my friends get on and play 2 - 3 games a day.
Developer Response ,
