    Best open-source chess game as far as I know! Too bad the game is made for an old Android version. Also, a GitHub issue states that the chess engine is out of date as well. However, I'm still enjoying it.

    Chess board colour , piece style are not so good...Stockfish 8 and Komodo 10 ,these two chess engines need to be added to analyze the games....option need to share the games with other apps ... opening book names with variation should also be noted in the movelist area..

    Really nice material design chess app. I'd bump my score to to a 5/5 if the dev allowed the option to change the color scheme to something a little more muted... The current colors are a bit hard on the eyes. Gray is alright though.

    I just love the material design, my only problem is that when I play two player whoever faces the other side gets a headache since the board is opposite to them.

    I've been looking for a chess app that also doesn't look like it's from the medieval period for ages and I've finally found this. Looks great, nice set of features enough for a beginner like me. Great work.

    Superb App With My Fav. Light & Orange Chess Board. Excellent Features Specially Stick 'Flip'. Chess Pieces Should Be Alfa Or Small Alfa. Sound Can Be Better With 'Click' Or 'Khatak'. Also Not Finding 'Save Match In PGN Format' Feature. Rest Is Out Of The World. I Wish Nothing But The Best For You. Good Luck !!!
