Upgrade to Chess.com Premium!

New iOS App in Store!

Great news from the iOS team! We just pushed a long-awaited update of our app to the Store. It was a long time coming but we're super excited to finally have it done - and it's a HUGE update!


Please note that iPhone 5 support is yet to come (but won't be long) - but in the meantime look at all the goodies!...

- Our app is now multi-lingual! It supports Arabic, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish!

(We are now optimizing all screens to handle longer words & phrases. If you find anything that's poorly translated, please email us at "support@chess.com" with the details!)

- Upgrade to premium membership via easy in-app purchase!
- Greatly improved connection to Live Chess server!
- Always see your current rating in Tactics Trainer!
- Challenge your Facebook friends!
- Share your games via Facebook and Twitter!

- A snazzy new Chess Clock utility for your table-top games!
- Analysis boards now have the full move list in online chess: Analyze any previous position!

- View computer evaluation right above the analysis board as you make moves! Perfect for "explaining" the end of a tactics puzzle! (Of course, this feature cannot be used for games in progress.)
- Make moves in "No vacation" tournaments while you are on vacation!
- Online games now split into "Your Move" & "Their Move" sections

- "Recently Finished" list shows games that ended since you last opened the app
- Hear a warning sound at the 10-second mark in Live games
- Check the Videos page for a new "How to Play Chess" video course; it's taught by IM Danny Rensch & FREE for all users!
- Many other minor fixes and interface improvements!

 

Get it from the App Store! 

 

We hope you enjoy it! (We certainly are!) :)

Till next time!

    @DeepGreene please be advised that settings (for example colour of chessboard, pieces, after move where system should go) does not save... after logging out or just closing the app next day you will find them all settled again by default Frown

    Please fix it

    @Lbrto369: This Android app should work on your tablet! :)

    Yes, we're going to research adding a language-picker in the next update (not counting the bug-fix which is already in review). Thanks!

    I second IcemanBN's post. Please give us the option to decide the language instead of forcing us to use half-baked translations. Aside from that, great job and keep up the good work!

    I abandoned iOS development mainly because it was not possible to push out a quick fix for a critical bug.

    See above for an alert about a bug we found... It's fixed, but now we have to go through the process with Apple. :(

    It looks great, but is there a time frame for the iPhone 5 optimization feature?

    German version: in Online Chess it says "ihr zug" (your move) no matter if it is your move or opponents move. In Tactics Trainer you cannot see your rating anymore on the side of the screen...please correct, thank you!!!

    Please let us choose language in settings. German Version with lots of bugs unfortunately. Many words and rating are not readable. I think probably because the letters are too big so that often you see dots instead. After a live match you cannot choose review anymore :-( will you fix it? Please update soon! Thanks!

    @DeepGreene I must say it's frustrating when you can't choose language on your own Frown

    everything else seems to be well updated Smile

    @teflonjedi - No time soon, but not unthinkable either.

  • 19 months ago

    DeepGreene

    @adriano81 - If possible, the app uses whatever language the device itself is set to use.
