Doesn't exactly work so well on the iPhone

:
I think I might be missing something obvious, but this game does work so great on a phone.

If you take a phone call your game is aborted and when you get back, you are booted to the main screen. I thought I could take a call for 10 seconds while my clock ran, but no such luck.

If only there was a way to turn off your phone but leave on your 3G data connection...

5/5 stars

Best for FiCS

:
Before this one, I've been using Magnus or Cyber chess. This one is much better. Better graphic, better interface and you only play human on FICS. I sent an email to the programmer and he responded fast. The only issue I have is dropped connection. Not sure if that's due to the program or my internet connection... Anyway, if you play on FICS a lot, get this one...

5/5 stars

plays chess, as advertised :)

:
A quick way to strike up an online chess game.
