Chess.com has finally released it’s iPhone app! Featuring player vs. player games, play vs. computer, and chess training tools, this free app will allow more than 1 million Chess.com members access to free online play, and will allow all users access to play vs. the computer, a chess puzzle trainer, and instructional videos.
Download Chess.com App from the iTunes Store
PLEASE GIVE US A GOOD RATING AND REVIEW (if you think we deserve it, of course)!
The key feature of the app is the ability to play turn-based games online with players around the world. Players may participate in an unlimited number of correspondence-style games, with time limits of days per move instead of minutes per game. The app also has a built-in top-level chess computer engine that can serve as an opponent with skill levels of 1-10, or as an analysis tool. There is also a tactics trainer that serves up timed chess puzzles and records a score. Finally, there are chess instructional videos provided by Grandmasters and top chess coaches.
The app can be visually customized to use any one of 81 possible board and pieces combinations, among other settings.
“I’m personally very excited about the iPhone app. I play on my own site several hours a day, and this app will allow me and our iPhone-enabled members to play chess while on the go.” says Erik, owner of Chess.com. “We’ve been working on this for 9 months – I can’t wait to offer this to our members.”
ok, I'll give it 4 stars
(now it only crashes every 10 runs)
There's a bug of sorts ... we believe. (v1.2.1)
I have been playing it for a few months now. First of 3G now 3Gs. No crashes just odd things like when I go into analyze the board is reversed from the actual game. Sometimes when I try and leave a msg it will give me an error msg to refresh the game. Otherwise no issues.
something is wrong with the Iphone app. Before you make a move In Iphone chess it says if it is Checkmate, stalemate or Another draw. This enabled me to switch my move when I was playing against my friend and find a mate in 1
Wasn't this already released a few moths ago?
Are their any plans to make Facebook Chess.com games accessible via the iPhone app?
It would be nice if it included chess960 games. Cant imagine thats hard to do.
I would be interested in this too. Playing facebook games on the iphone is a chore. If i could play my facebook friends via this app i would use it a lot.
I left a gloating review :) I think it's deserved - to be able to play my many CC games on my phone so nicely, with chat - awesome.
A couple of suggestions though: In-game, those buttons such as "analyze" and "chat" don't have a feedback image. When I "click" it I'd like to know that I hit it correctly, because sometimes I either miss it or hit the wrong one, since they are small buttons. Just a simple white border on pressing it or something.Also - chess960, although I know I'm not the first to suggest that. If I am traveling and can make my moves easily on all of my games but my 960, I go onto auto-vacation. It's a hassle to have to go to the game on my browser just for the 960s.
Thanks again guys - really enjoying the app and looking forward to watching it grow.
Downloaded the latest version (1.23)of the iPhone app a few days ago. I love that the "Submit/Cancel" no longer sits over the board, but displays at the bottom.
However...this version is now REALLY buggy. In my online games, pieces aren't always where they should be. The first game seems to be ok, but any other games in the queue are messed up. I lost a queen in a game that I was doing pretty well on, because the opponent's knight was displayed in another position than it was in reality.
I've now need to back out of the app before moving to another game.
we're working on fixes!
I noted some problems in this new version release this week:
- When I click on analise button it's quitting from the app very often, which in the previus version never ocurred to me.
- Another difference with the previous version is the app take much more time to load when click the online button.
- In the videos option we can't see the full name of the videos. When we search for videos of a serie, for example, the rock endgames series of the IM Rensch, there is no way to know what is the number of the video because the initial name of the videos are the same.
Despite this little problems its a terrific app the I use in all my free time .
Congrats for the nice job!
it is crashing a lot, especially on startup.
i know - i'm in tears. working on it!
