Too many ads 3/5
Ad after every move!
App great until update 2/5
I loved chess with friends... then the app was updated. Since then, every time I scroll through my games I am suddenly assigned to a new game that I don't want to play. I am given the choice of resigning the game which counts for a loss on my record or to continue to play the game I don't want to play. This has happened four times now and I'm considering dropping the app altogether.
Games are Corruptable midway 2/5
I have had several game end due to being corruptible. This has happened after the latest upgrade...
Please Look into this please...
By Brother T.
App is rad, but the best part about it is that I've met a grip of cool chess playing fools out there... Checkmate dickwad. Yep!
It works 2/5
It works but that's about the only pro. Ads and notifications are far too frequent and intrusive considering the bomber of options there are in free chess apps.
Tooo many advertisements 2/5
Way tooo many advertisements. To the point where it's not enjoyable to play. One move on chess and I have a 15 second commercial I can't "x" out of. I'm going with another chess online app. This ones too commercialized.
Download if you love ads 1/5
Waaaaaaaaaay too much ads. After almost every single move, you have to watch an ad. And that makes you lose focus. I'm just finishing this last game then will uninstall it
Love the game...but 4/5
By Hooded Qobra Ent.
I love this game, it is fun to play with friend, and the new version looks nice and has a lot of great features like the ranking system etc...my only problem and reason for only 4 stars is, I had an account years ago...when I had a different facebook account, I signed in with my email and password and all my stars are there, I try and add my NEW facebook account so I can challenge and play my friends on there and it won't let me..cuz it says "you have signed in already with fb..but I haven't..I don't see how to disassociate this account with the OLD facebook and assocciatecit with my new one..I have even contacted support...like a month ago...and still no fix or response...part or me wants to rate it a 1 just for that fact, but the game itself is awesome...they just need to fix this ONE flaw

Ads after every move? Seriously?
Keep old chess the same! 2/5
By DuPont Dad
This was a great app.
The new version is terrible. Worse they bully you with roadblocks and pop ups in the old version to try and force you to downgrade to new chess. Pull the continued pop ups and upgrade prompts and leave us to play old chess in peace.
Way Overpriced and you dont get upgrades! 1/5
The ridiculous $10 price doesnt include upgrades to newer versions!
Stop trying to get me to upgrade😥😡😲😱💩 1/5
The current state of this app is great and needs no upgrade. It keeps interrupting my games asking me to upgrade and I don't want to. I paid for this app and to be forced to an upgrade that anyone can get without paying is stupid.
Lots of fun 5/5
I love that I can finally see my rankings and those of others on my iPhone. Thank you. Great app. Love it!
By Steve VonMatterhorn
Your ads are horrible ... not only do you freeze play after every move with ads, but you play Pro-Trump propaganda ... Fock this shotty app
Very good game
It's barely 'just ok' 2/5
I've had this app for a while now. There is absolutely no way I would ever pay for it, though, and definitely not the $9.99 version. Opponents can go 3-4 days without making a move, offer you a draw, and do it all over again. Pass and play is ridiculously slow. Sometimes it will not notify you that your opponent has moved until hours later. Graphics and gameplay itself are fine, nothing amazing. Chat option is nice. We should be able to finish games in a reasonable amount of time. Additionally, show an opponent's win-loss record prior to accepting a game. More importantly, show how many times they failed to complete one and timed out of games. The many negatives lead to a sub-standard rating in my book
Great so now you try and force an upgrade 1/5
Not bad enough you charge $9.99 for the two year old ad-free app, but now you make an unskippable upgrade pop up for your new app with a two star rating. No thanks.
Love it 5/5
By cam jo
Way too many ads! 1/5
There's a 15 second ad after every move! It's super invasive and way over the top.
This app keeps asking if you want to give a review and when you say no take me off the list it keeps asking you. Give it a rest. Irritating.
What you need, nothing else 3/5
It's convenient, on the go, what you need. Few problems though. It's nothing special, there is no color packs, and the ads. I understand a free app needs to make money somehow, but this is ridiculous. It's every. Single. Move. So you can forget hand- off play. I looked to see how much the ad free was, and they want a whopping $10. Wow. It needs a few upgrades.
I could be wrong but I believe if you've been checked you're not allowed to castle yet that doesn't happen in this game.
It kept asking and asking for a review. 2/5
Basic. No computer to play against.
Great game app 4/5
I've downloaded several chess apps and this is one of the best I've found.
Great App 4/5
By Scooter 9
Enjoy playing people from all over the world. Like that it teaches beginners.
Some of the rules are weird, like you have to put your opponent in check first or it could call the game a draw.
Using iOS and paid for the app but don't have all features as android. Please fix and I will up my rating. Issues with iOS still not resolved.
By S. A. M. Adams
Its a fun way to keep the chess games going, and the message feature helps us stay in touch. I only wish the "game replay" feature was easier to use with buttons not so close together on the iPhone. Otherwise would be five stars.
Update: suggest the app add a feature whereby a completed game may be shared in its entirety by email or text. This would be a good strategy for increasing the number of users....
Love the game 5/5
Love the game. Great features. Tried the free version at first. Ads drove me crazy. So I spent a few dollars and purchased it. No problems since then.
Good but needs work 3/5
It keeps asking me to login with Facebook even though I did already. Also shows alerts in other languages intermittently.
Even after reviewing also constantly asks to be reviewed.
Always fun way to play with friends and Family that are far away
It's goood 5/5
Android version is better 2/5
Get that version if you can. Zynga doesn't care about making the iOS version as good as the android version
Back at playing! 5/5
Great game 5/5
My wife and I have the app and now we can play while I'm on the road. Great game
Love the game not a fan of the app 1/5
By genny <3
I love the game it's self and being able to go back and see my moves. Especially when I play multiple games between classes. I don't like the fact that if I have a conversation with a friend eventually messages don't appear. What's the point of having a chat option if eventually we can't chat? The ads while annoying I get it. You need to make money for those that pay but are they the only ones who can chat? Also, everyone else can see me but I can't see them. I choose to share a picture but should I also be able to see others?. No way I'm paying $10 if the most basic things aren't available on a free app. As I write this I keep taking away stars. Fix these problems and the rating will change.
Too many adds 1/5
Downloaded the game and played it for about 5 minutes. Literally after every single move you make, you have to watch an advertisement. I got redirected to the App Store twice during the 5 minutes. I immediately uninstalled. Worthless especially if you don't have unlimited data like me. The videos will destroy data usage.
Great chess game! 5/5
Simple. Effective. It's what you want when you play chess on your phone.
My main gripe!!! 3/5
When a draw is offered, you must accept or reject it before going to another game. Worse still, you can't see the board before you decide as the message blocks a major part of it. When playing several games with some moves taking days to get a response, you often cannot remember where the game stands. This is horrible and has happened to me over 100 times as I play a lot.
Best chest 5/5
By caulkin bowls
Best chest game ever!
It's chess. 4/5
Works well however it is missing some of the features found in the android version. Is blocked by some networks.
They need to update 3/5
They need to update to current OS?
And make a version for iPad.
A chess player's dream! 5/5
I've always loved chess, but haven't had people to play, especially players with any skill. This app provides countless opponents, spreading countless degrees of challenge, from beginner to expert!!
Its fun. 4/5
By porn. lol
Server is too slow for paid app! 3/5
By Mr Car Wash
Time to upgrade....
Brings the Game alive! 5/5
By Britain's Dad
I like to play many games concurrently with either friends from FB or strangers. I don't chat much - just play! Works wonderfully.
This game has connected my family of avid amateur chess players again. It's fun. Beats other mindless games. I love it when I'm winning and hate it when I'm losing. The chat feature adds depth to the experience.
Apparently a checkmate is a draw 1/5
Up grade 5/5
On iPhone can you show win & loss against your opponent
Love it! 5/5
Playing chess and meeting interesting people from all over the world!
