    Not a bug, but (for me) an annoying feature: when I fail to solve the tactics, I tap on "solution" button. In last version the delay between all moves (when showing the solution) was a bit bigger. In new version - especially when the task is not the one- or two-move-problem - the computer shows all moves too fast, I simply cannot keep up, and have to go through solution with the analysis board.

    Maybe you can increase this delay a bit...

    ...

    Well, to not be considered as one who just complains, I must admit, that new features in version are going into really better direction. The most useful for me are move list and ability to change game to next/previous by sliding on the screen. But I didn't find all of the new features yet...

    Thanks for your work!

    GnrfFrtzl, there are two chess.com apps on the Play Store, Chess Classic which is v2 and Chess Play and Learn which is v3. The v2 app is no longer supported and they should probably remove it. The v3 app is current and updated, and it is free.

    No, V2 should remain. Forum browsing there is superior in one sense compared to V3 - You can view user profiles by tapping their usernames. V3 cannot do this (in addition to its crashing bug when viewing my Stats).

    Profile view from forums will be added. Crashes in stats, still under investigation :(

    Is the app written in JAVA? With a lot of WebViews or something?!

    Can you like handle clicks and stuff on a WebView? E. g.: you provide the HTML from your app instead of having the request go to a server?

    Or do you use C(++)?

    Can you, even, create android UIs using HTML, CSS and JavaScript?!

    Thanks!

    This app is written in native android way, using Java and xml for layouts. We are using REST API. No webviews(except for tournaments). 

    For crossplatoform development you can search for Xamarin, Titanium...

    Hey, thanks so much for your answer!

    I realized "native" UIs for Android are made with XML - that's cool!

    Nothing beats a markup language for creating UIs! HTML is nice, but, it's really for text/content markup and HTTP isn't suitable for UIs. I've used .NETs WPF and XAML before - it is so nice for creating UIs, though, doesn't quite feel quite mature to me (yet). Making UIs from code, like you very much have to, in many languages/environments, is just plain a pain - and seems wrong.

    Another bug found, but not sure if this is limited to the app:

    In "Play Computer" in the app, the level 10 computer cannot castle, and when it tries to castle, it will take its own rook, and end up at the rook square. I have tested level 6, and it seems to castle properly.
