Good, but drains battery fast

I haven’t experienced the app crashing that everyone else seems to be mentioning. However, I’ve noticed this App drains the battery of my iPad incredibly quickly. 47 minutes of playing and I lost nearly 20% of my battery.
That’s more than any other game I have played on my iPad. Definitely unexpected behavior from a Chess app.

The app crashes once in a while

I have lost so many rating points because the app just randomly crashes and when I open the app again there’s no option to reconnect back to the game I left. The UI is horrible and the overall interface feels very laggy. This app has been around for more than a year and the developers still haven’t bothered to fix the bugs. One would expect or at least hope that an app from such a big organisation would function smoothly yet here we are. The fact that they charge €25 per year for this crap is infuriating. Even lichess which is completely free and made by a single developer runs better than this crap. How many times do they want me to send them an email telling them that the app crashed again? I have lost around 50+ rating points because of this issue.

Great start, but there are many bugs

It crashes sometimes; UI can have more options; no abort when no moves were played; time tracking is not accurate
