Chess With Friends

There are many chess apps on iTunes these days, but Chess with Friends stands out in the crowd. Hit the jump for the review.

In Chess with Friends, you do not play against a computer. Your opponents are your friends plus everyone on the internet. You can find your friends by username or using the contacts from your device. If you don’t have friends (poor you), you can be randomly paired with an opponent.

The graphics are visually pleasing. Nothing fancy here, just simple colors and nice design. Also, the app is ad-supported, so there’s just one little ad on the main menu.

When you start a game, you don’t have to play it through to the end in one sitting. The app organizes games where it’s your turn and games where it’s your opponents turn into two different categories. This makes it easy to jump into a game whenever you want. If you’ve been gone a long time, you can even view each individual game’s history of moves.

At the bottom of the main menu of the app, it shows all the games that you’ve completed. This gives you some incentive to win games, unless you prefer to show people how many times you’ve failed.

This app is great. If you’re still unsure about it, just give it a try. It’s free! 4.5/5

P.S. Go ahead and start a game with lubic4sho or me by typing in our usernames (that’s lubic4sho and securi7y).
