Great chess app
Love the game. Very fun to play
I love the game. It had some serious issues a few weeks ago but things seem to have been sorted out.
Stop adds 3/5
Good times 5/5
Les of fun
Stop asking me to upgrade 1/5
If I were on the free version, it would be ok, maybe, about once a week. But I paid for the classic version! And now I can't open the app without this BS pop-up telling me to "upgrade" to the newer, more expensive version of the app. Srsly?! F#%* you...I paid for the classic version specifically because you said it would remove ads, now the app itself is the add. And you can't click out of the upgrade screen! I literally have to click "Upgrade" open the app store, and then swipe back to my paid Chess With Friends "Classic." And then you ask me for a review. Perfect. Here it is you f#%*%ers. I will never pay for, or likely use your app(s) again. Checkmate.
By oh please spare me
Stop asking me to review your app!!!
On the rematch 5/5
Allow the person that asks for rematch be black
Sooo good. So much fun. I love this app
By Make 'em squirt
This game employs ads that are way too long and not responsive to touch. There have been multiple times that a game has been lost or malfunctioned. The full version is overpriced. Will be deleting.
Fun app if you enjoy the game of Chess
Am I getting paid for this review? 🤨 5/5
I don’t know something popped up on my app saying to “help review this app” and I was on a “list”. Hm, odd. 2018, heh? Watching Forrest Gump right now after a 4-8 shift. Got homework I should be doing. It’s not due or anything, I just figure that it’s a form of procrastination since it’s 2018. If I’m not focusing on my future I’m procrastinating by a technicality.
So anybody else think the Pats are cheaters? 🧐
Entertainment all the way! 5/5
Love this game, play it everyday.
Annoying ads take up too much time. 2/5
The ads are horrible and VERY repetitive. They take up way too much time. I do not like those ads.
This version is great!!! 3/5
I absolutely loved this version of the game but every 5th move it prompts me to play on their new version. I hate everything about the new game. I tried to play on it thinking I would get used to it but I cannot get used to the colors. I really don’t like being forced to play the new version.
Harassing me to go to new 2/5
But the new version feeds you advertisements even though you paid for the old... total BS
The only thing going for it is the user base. Ads after every move make it unplayable. The “pro” version is 10$ and isn't an in app purchase, its a whole separate app. I sold my Zynga stock because of this app. Can’t believe they put out garbage like this.
Way too expensive, plenty of others out there
Good free app, too many ads, questions… 4/5
I enjoy playing, the fact that you can chatt while your playing, definitely annoyed at the ads. Other than that, I keep updating whenever it gives me the option, but I feel like I am missing out on some of the functions. How do you nudge someone? I’ve gotten nudged before and I still don’t have that option. Also someone commented about a ranking system, I don’t see that on mine. Are there different versions of this app and how can I unlock its full potential?
F%#! you Ads. 5/5
By Jt the cynic
Again, but with more..
F#%! you Ads. 🖕🏼
Could be better 2/5
The game play is just fine but having to wait for people to play is why I give this app two stars. People take to long to play days even, it like playing a marathon game one game take weeks to play. Two stars!
Long distance chess 5/5
By Deep South Mike
My brother and played chess often when we were young. Many years lapsed without a game since we located to different states. Last year we downloaded your chess app and have both really enjoyed playing again, he in Pennsylvania and I in North Carolina. It’s a great app and has made it possible for two brothers to enjoy the worlds greatest game once again. Thank you!
Works great 5/5
It's average and it works 2/5
It's chess. The rules are in place and you can play against others.
Nothing overly special imo
The advertising is annoying ... really annoying.
The fee to remove the advertising is even more ridiculous.
Pieces in wrong positions 1/5
Can we please fix the issue with the king and queen being lined up wrong on the board!
Not my type of chess game 1/5
I was hoping to play chess but found myself playing cat and mouse. When I play I want to play the game, start the game, finish the game, not move once every 3 days. A player can take like 5 days to move and you have to check in daily to see if it’s your turn yet... and you aren’t even allowed to quit the game. This chess game is not for me.
Paid to remove ads. Still have ads :/ 1/5
By KHD in dallas
Used to love this app. I even paid to have ads removed. One day my ads came back randomly. I emailed the company through their app. Nothing. Finally I gave up a REPURCHASED the in app purchase to remove ads. I STILL HAVE ADS. Very frustrating. Come on guys. I know it’s an old product and you probably don’t devote a ton of resources to it. But at least delivery on promises: I paid for no ads, you should make sure they don’t display anymore.
Corrupted games 1/5
Just like the new version: games become corrupted and ultimately count as a loss. Not fair
Something has happened to this site 2/5
Many games are corrupted. Others end prematurely.
2 stars 2/5
By POed pawn
The app lost three of my games, they just disappeared!... and forced me to forfeit with ought being able to make a move.. bummer.
I belive it is a major defect in tha system when a player is shut out in the middle of a game and told that he resigned from the game when the player never resigned . Very unfair .
Love it BUT 4/5
Recently it’s not been allowing me to make my move on a couple games so my notification will say I have 4 games to make my move on and I open the app and refresh and it only allows me to move on two... Ive lost two games because of this and it’s messing up my stats!!!!
Normally I love it though, I play every day!
Corrupted game! 5/5
What happened???? I kept starting over games because it said CORRUPTED GAME. CAN NOT CONTINUE FAIRLY. My opponents didn’t have it on their side! LOVE this game, so I deleted it and will now restart up. Crossing fingers!!
Love it! 5/5
Except the super annoying pop up adds.
Too much BS 2/5
By teXas -H town-
I can't even play my games right now. It gives me notifications to games that exist but don't even show up on the app. It's giving me other issues in the past with not allowing me to make moves due this hanging loading screens.
Stupidly over-priced 2/5
By Dre XYZ
It’s a game of Chess for crying out loud. I hate the constant adds after every single move. I bet if the game was $1.99, they would have a lot more people willing to pay for the app, hence meaning more money for the developer in the long run.
Good game and works as expected 5/5
Great game!!! 5/5
I’ve literally used this game to connect with friends and family across the US. The games can be quick or last weeks. Love the message feature. Thanks!!!
The Best 5/5
By Mr Jerry Dew
Play every day
Abrupt Game Deletions 2/5
I was loving this app until about 5 days ago when my 12 or so ongoing games were suddenly deleted. I’m hoping that this issue will be resolved soon.
Great game 5/5
I love how this game is set up. Not too fancy, straight forward concept and plenty of good competition.
Best chess app 5/5
Love this app! Play all the time
Don’t pay 1/5
By Batman Villan
I paid to remove the advertisements years ago, & now they want me to pay $9.99 NO WAY! The ad-less version is running adds now.
“Ok” game 3/5
The game is pretty nice being you can’t see all your previous moves you’ve made before, but for iPhone users the game is a lil glitchy and don’t show profile pictures on anybody your playing, I was really thinking about going premium but waiting to see if they fix these issues
Great game 5/5
Great chess app to play with friends. Sure, an ad pops up after each move, but just close the app and reopen it; problem solved. 5stars
Great way to connect with Friends 4/5
By Hoola Hoop
If you like chess, this is a great app to play against others. For me, it's a great way to get a little competition going with friends. I like that you can type messages to each other in the game itself. It adds to the being able to heckle each other between moves! I wish there was a take back button as I've made a move before and almost instantly wanted to take it back. But oh well, that's kind of like the real game!
Easy and Fast 5/5
Love this app. Best game of all time! Play with friends at your convenience.
Okay until you reach the higher end - with corrupt “programmers” and abuse not curbed. 1/5
Initially the game was fun but as you reach higher levels you quickly realize that the top “rated” players have found ways to rig the program and corrupt games as soon as they are in a losing position. They are also able to win games with 1 or 2 moves where the normal user is restricted to 3 moves. I also received abuse from a bad loser (Dumb Viking) and nothing was done about it....disgraceful for what is supposed to be chess with friends???? Really??
No video adds please 5/5
Love the game! Wish ads weren’t videos. Perhaps pictures instead? You killing my data softly.
