    I just recently got windows 8 and i like it a lot.

    But in the store, there is no chess.com app.

    Can someone please make a chess.com app for windows 8/windows phone 8 and use the live tiles to tell you if you have any games/messages etc.

    I know that this is a big request but i imagine that i am not the only one who thinks there should be a windows 8 app, and it's not like windows 8 is dying, it will increase a lot.

    I would love to see the Chess.com app there too.  I really liked the Surface but would would not like it if I couldn't use the Chess.com app.

    bump! would love to see an app for Windows 8 even if it were just a touch friendly UI running on x86 but prefer both arm and x86 support. We'll see which of the major chess sites is first to Win 8.

    Windows 8 represents the first true platform to being able to carry a full OS on a tablet that weighs 1.5 lbs. or less, and has 10 hours of battery or more! Don't miss your chance to be an early adapter Chess.com

    @JG27Pyth - This is a Windows 8 request topic.  What are you doing here?  Also, this is about windows phone 8; what does windows 98 have to do with anything?

    It's called humor, a staple of the forums.  Lighten up, even a Luddite like me got it.

    There are already over 50 chess apps for Windows 8. A couple of months ago, there were maybe only 25. So it is growing quickly

    I wish chess.com would at least respond and let us know if they are working on this.  Do chess.com staff even read the forums?  I have never gotten a reply on the forums from anyone who works for this site.

    I sent a question to techncal support about chess.com for a win8 phone.

    I have not gotten a reply yet. My wife told me to take a red marker, and write WIN8 on the back of my Iphone, and then play chess.com from the new win8-Iphone. Her suggestions are one of the reasons I love to loose myself in chess.......

    We don't have a desktop version sorry. I run a beta version of win8 (over my win7) and the site works fine on that.

    I posted this same topic on the Diamond Members forum a few weeks ago... a desktop / phone / tablet app for Windows 8 would be much appreciated.
