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.
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.”
