I'm simply looking for a nice iPhone 5 app to to play chess with my friends during breaks in school. Android has one nice app which allows a 2 player game where you can flip the black pieces so you can easily play facing eachother. I could find no such app in the apple store :( Am I the only one who sees this as an important feature? I hate fliping the board and all that nonsense XD
This is the free version; there's also a paid version. I use it on the iPad to play against friends in person. The setting for setting up the pieces the way you want them is "symmetrical". It also has a clock if you want to play timed games.
I got the app on my iphone and looked through the settings and didn't find the setting you described :(
There isn't a free version, but you could try tChess Lite ($0.99) or tChess Pro - there is a "flip pieces" setting under interface options that does what you're looking for.
Thank you pwwaring!!! It worked!
Yes that feature exists in tChess as well.
In Chess-Wise from the front page select Settings. The fifth setting is Pieces orientation. Touch that and a menu with four choices appears. Symmetrical is one of the choices.
I don't have it on the iPhone but I think they both have the same interface.
