Premove capability for mobile app

Feanor73

Is there any way we can get premoves for the mobile apps? I've lost a lot of easy mates and mates in one because every move on a phone takes at least one second, and I can't premove the necessary moves. (I mainly play blitz.) This is really frustrating, and premove capability seems fairly easy to implement. Any chance?

I would like this same question answered. I was in the 1300s on blitz and started to lose a lot of games because I think players above that level likely all know premove. You simply can't compete without it.

I would like to see this feature too. I usually only play on my mobile when I'm traveling by public transportation, but then I don't have the time to play anything besides blitz usually and even in 15|2 games I often run out of time in winning positions because I can't make the finishing moves fast enough. A lot of time is used making sure you've selected the correct square because it's easy to misclick with butterfingers on a small screen so this really would safe a lot of time to win won games (and also during the opening where you can pre-retake often).

android has premove for live chess (you must enable it in the settings - it's too weird for new players to have ON by default :D)

Tangotize

Can premove be added to the iPhone App as well please. As detailed above it makes blitz games near impossible without it, especially if your opponent can use premove.

in the works!
