Great live coverage for all the tournaments!

It’s always been painful on mobile to find all the games and tournaments, I tried the free version and it was promising so I upgraded to paid and don’t regret it at all. The interface is good and it does exactly what I need. Super easy to follow all the tournaments now!

Watch Chess very good and could be even better

Watch Chess works perfectly on my iPhone. I would also love to see the app coupled to a good chess engine to see competent responses to alternate moves from a given position. The engine would mimic expert analysis, and help me understand moves as played.

Developer Response ,

Watch Chess now includes a chess engine 🎉
