Great app. Almost perfect.

The app is clean and well designed. Amazing and all that, but I think you already know this. I have a few requests before I can give it a 5 star though.

1. Add in leaderboards and achievements. Or perhaps different classes so you can play in the "easy" room or the "pro" room, etc.
2. Maybe add the ability to message your opponent.
3. Add the ability to "nudge" your opponent so you get a notification if there taking too long.
4. I'd like to see my stats. How many wins/ losses of course but maybe some other interesting stats would make it more interesting. Which could play into the achievements part. Little awards/badges similar to the nike fuel band app.
5. Maybe there's timed matches as well. So you HAVE to sit there and play it and the game doesn't span out over a week. I'm sure all these options would require a menu being created. As long as you still keep your simple "bare minimum button" layout.

Overall a great app though. Keep up the good work guys!

Thank you

I wrote in an email to the devs when they took the app off the App Store, pretty much begging them to keep supporting it. Tall Chess made a boring game my friends and family would play all the time an absolute joy for me. I’ve already become better than them thanks to the hard AI.

Best Chess App Ever

Tall Chess is absolutely and always the best chess mobile app. I'm so glad it's still on the AppStore. It's amazing how it isn't at the top of the results when I search "chess" on the AppStore. I search "chess" and all I get is — literally — junk. More people should know about TALL CHESS!!!!
