    I have tried other chess apps and this is the BEST, by far. Smooth motion and shows captured pieces. The graphics are great. The chess board angle is excellent. The replay and save option is another feature that other apps don't even offer. I play against this app on an actual board every day, this machine has no mercy. It's hard as hell, believe me. The creators named this REAL CHESS for a reason. Good night and GOOD LUCK... Full Review

    VPretty straight forward Games with options to flip and invert the board.. Control preameters for onlineplay are phenomenal(you can even make the moves speed count for extra time In speed matches. Overall I'd give it an S. One thing though🆗 level 3 is the like of the level 7Ai on my last chess app. Not for nothing, it's precise and unforgiving. I like it. Keep up the good work. Full Review

    The only problem I have is that when you are playing in 2 player, you have to keep passing the phone to the next person. It would be better if you could play it the same way you would play chess in real life (the players sitting opposite to each other). Other than that, it's a great game. Full Review

    Very nice app to play chess with people online. But would have been more better with an option to share this app with my friends in different city and call them to play with me. Please add an option to pause game if possible since sometimes we get busy on urgent phone calls and then everything is lost after the call. Full Review

    Edit: Amazing graphics, smooth, easy interface, several difficulty AI levels and online gameplay with high success in joining an online match. Unnexpected customization options which I found very pleasing and options to save online match gameplays to replay later in your saves file. Wow. I'm so happy with this game that I felt my previous comment needed updating. This game is up there with my clash of clans obsession. I actually came here to find a buying option to support this game but no, its completely free, WOW. Full Review

    The app is ok it could be better. Maybe add what kind of opponent you want to face, for cause for example I play rook and queen but ai plays bishop knight so maybe add a bit more fine tuning of the ai. Otherwise good job! Full Review

    There are tricks where some players can delay their moves and ask for Draw or cause the other to leave to win points. The application should have means for reporting such players. Milad 0614 adopts such a strategy, the games can be reviewed. Apart from this issue, it is a pleasant application with nice graphics. Full Review

    The game is good. I like the graphics, and love its anonymity. Just knowing that I could be playing with anyone, of either gender, of any age, anywhere on the planet, and I'll never know who they are, but that we're joined together by this fleeting moment of "live" chess is, for me, a special thing. Yes, the ap is great. Full Review

    Best chess game out there by far! My only issue is they dont have a way to play with friends that also have RealChess. Please add an "invite friends" or something. Also, it would be great to be able to play music from another app and hear it in Real Chess Full Review

    The movement. The graphics. The look of the game is all wonderful. I would rate more, if I've had the chance to. Now, here is my suggestion, try adding a tutorial book, or a level where it teaches you, how to play the game for beginners. Of course I would still rate it 5 with or without. Thank you for making such a great game, I really do appreciate it. Full Review

    Great Free Chess Game! The hardest difficulty level is actually challenging! I'm not a pro so take that with a grain of salt. The commercials are tolerable because you can skip the ones that are not interesting, but there's a few worth watching. Full Review

    Game is great. But crashes a lot for no reason. Even if a call comes while playing, it gets disconnected. Another issue is searching frnds online. There is no way to start a game with a facebook friend like sending game code. It is quite annoying to manually search a friend from a long list of active chess players. Full Review

    This app always crashes like 4-5 times before i get to finally play. Do you know how long it takes to find a match? First you have to find someone that has time limit/settings that you like, then when you invite them to play they dont always accept so you have to invite someone again and when they accept, after the add shows up your application crashes. It takes me about 20 to 30 mins before i can finally play a single game of chess. So much wasted time, please fix this so it doesn't crash anymore. Full Review

    Application was one of the best. In some other apps, when you are about to win opponent closes the connection or closes the app . In this app you will win if they do that. But now app is unstable. As we play application silently exits. Thus I was seemed failed for none of my reasons. And ita frustrating to get the app closed by itself when you are about to win. Hope the developers fixes it. Full Review

    I want to love this so much, because it's so pretty, but the levels are all the same. I play this nearly every day, and I have yet to win! It feels like the difficulty is the same no matter what level you choose which is very frustrating. I am new to chess, so I wanted a game to learn on and practice on, but I just get whooped no matter what level I choose and it makes me want to stop playing altogether. Full Review

    Absolute fun plaything this game of chess.. probably the best I have seen or played on net. Couple of glitches though, no way to check the profile of player while game is on like his rating, games played etc. Also our history is not tracked and it's not possible to know our streak and people whom we played with Full Review

    it use to be the best chess app but now they put ads on screen during actual chess match which is distracting. i understand ads are needed and didnt mind the ones on loading and home screen but now there on screen during timed matches. sadly im deleting it now to find another app without ads during actual game Full Review

    Great app, but it might drain battery quite a bit. Also, there should be more penalty for people who disconnects instead of resigning when they're losing. These people have no sportsmanship and are just wasting others' time. Full Review

    The best part about it, is that you can set the level of difficulty in a flexible way. I can choose to put it in easy or just above it, or hard but just below it. And I'm loving the AI agent. Not to mention the design of the app. Full Review

    Dont like that its horizontal honestly just make it vertical so that I can play with one hand. And the ai sucks, its so goddamn conservative. Any time that I actually get set up it just moves one piece back and forth, super annoying. It doesn't gradient up either, I can beat level 2 just fine but I've beat level 3 twice out of endless rage quit games Full Review

    The only thing maybe it"s my device is when I try to pick a location on the far side of the board...sometimes the spot desired does"nt accept it, so I need to keep pressing until it accepts it. Or maybe the board needs to be more level. Other than that... it"s fine and challenging! Full Review

    The black pieces are very hard to distinguish, they are essentially shadows. You may want to consider adding a high contrast mode or colorblind mode. I'm not colorblind, but I'm truly straining my eyes trying to decipher the black pieces. Full Review
