I loved playing SparkChess on the browser version. This is one of the first Apps I installed on my iPad. I recommend it to the students that I teach. I had a problem with an older version, but it was fixed. This is one of my favorite chess apps. It has a ton of features.

Developer Response ,

I'm sorry about that issue. It was fixed two years ago. I'd love if you could try SparkChess again and revise your rating. A 5-star rating helps us keep the development going!
