  • Frequent Corruption of Games

    I played 7 games with this app. 5 out of the 7 games were corrupted ending the games prematurely. Mine or the opponents device could have issues, however, I am now using a different chess app with out issues.

    I have not had a problem until recently but now my paid game board won’t refresh unless I log out and back in. Please fix this.

  • Please fix

    The only problem I have when using this app is. When I’m playing someone and I get and advantage, a checkmate or take a piece freely. My opponent does not like this and somehow finds a way to close out the game. It shows up as a “corrupted” game. No win or loss. Nothing. Like it never happened. All that work gone to waste. If a player shuts off his phone while playing the app or something to avoid a loss. Then he should get a loss and award his opponent the win. This is very frustrating please fix. I really wanna use this app. It really is very good. Just this issue
  • I’ve given up on this app

    I’ve given up on this app. Like other games in their retinue (Words with Friends for one), Zynga has ruined this chess app. The look has become cheesy, the design makes it conveniently easy to accidentally start a game (with a start new game button on every finished game icon), and recently I’ve had three games with one opponent go for 10-15 moves only to have the games ended because they were corrupted. There are several much better chess apps available that haven’t cheapened the game of chess with their silly design antics.
  • $10 to remove ads?

    I’d rather just remove the app from my phone for free. The ads are incessant, I don’t need blasts of Donald Trump’s face every time I make a move. I only played one game and that was ended abruptly because the game was “corrupted.” I’m not sure what that even means. If I could have played more on the app and found it worth $10, I might have paid for it. But I’m not going to pay $10 in the hopes of making a bad app better. It’s still likely to be a bad app even after I pay the $10. I’m moving on.
  • Absolute crap

    I never write reviews for apps but this one was so broken and messed up I felt compelled to say something. Nothing in this works. You try to connect with Facebook (which it won’t remember for your next app use) and it tells you that you already have an account and to retry. But then it DOES work, but only sort of. I can see one of my Facebook friends, but my husband who also has the app, does not appear. And of course, there is no way to search for my husbands username so that we could play. And was this UI done in 2009? Shameful that zynga would even put their name on this. It reeks of outsourced garbage.
  • Bar of guys

    By Eracer555
    Please...please add an option to hide the ugly bar of guys at the top of the interface. Seriously what were you thinking with that. Let me make the UI clean! Cmon people this is Chess.
  • Overall, it’s a failure.

    I love the original CWF app. The look and feel is organized and clean. The design and UI is so much better than this new app. There are advantages to this app, however. You can see so much more information, such as your rating - and that of your opponent - your record history, and so much more. The original app has almost non of these features. My main complaint, and what I would LOVE to see changed, is the fact that an opponent can wait up to FIVE DAYS in between moves. That is ridiculous. I have played games that have lasted three months. There is no logical reason for that. Two days is far more time than is actually needed... and, in my opinion, one is enough. But five is absurd. Please change this. PLEASE. Additionally, I would like to be able to play more than 40 games at one time if desired. There should be no “maximum” number of games allowed. But this is not as big of a deal, just something I’d like changed. Improve this and the other requests named in these reviews and you’ll get 5 stars from me.
