That is ripoff 1.You cannot play with your friends. 2. You cannot pause a watched game. Well these are the main thing to pay for a chess software right?! Unless you would play with a computer... 12$ for a fake software...

The app is OK but you could improve it by making the board bigger in landscape mode. And please, please bring an option to change the notation background color to other than white because it's hard to play chess with a flashlight in your eyes all the time. Thanks!

Nice Very good for chess lovers. The advantage of watching the international tournaments on app is a bonus. Much comfortable than watching on browser. However, please add SUBMIT button for a move to complete. On Moto E, mistakenly I move piece to wrong house because of hand movement. Then had to resign. Thanks and Regards.

Crashes frequently on Samsung Galaxy 5 Decent interface, but very unstable. I have tried all the recommended fixes to no avail. (Upgrade O/S, delete reinstall app, reatart phone, clear browswer cache, delete SD card databases) nothing seems to help. Very frustrating when it crashes at a critical point on a game. When it actually works right- it is great.

No customer service No way to report players with cheater programs. And there are alot. They operate unchecked. The most popular is when they stop playing the game and let the clock run out, then the score pops up with you as the loser? Connection remains good, chat, stats, and all other functions are online. Cheat program is the only possibility. There is no customer service or recourse.

Michael Bradley

Playchess ..great app Natural extension to getting online with ChessBase

Michael Ogunniran

OMG. SO AMAZINGLY, PERFECTLY, WONDERFULLY PERFECTION ;) So amazig its perfectly total perfection. Awesome job on this 5 stars for this game wow awesomeness awesomely coollllllly awesomeness. Sorry for all the awesomeness but its GREATER than chess live $$$$$$$ !!!!!!

Maxim Ivanov

The worst application Totally disgusting and bugged app. It disconnects you from the server without notification and then your games are lost! It crashes in the middle of the game. One of the worse apps.

Khalil Alsaboori

Great application engine is not working with Android 5.0, crash the application

Jonathan Lopez

Its not free.. Like the other app, u can play but limited days..

Milos Sikimic

Make it free for guest users Make it free for guest users just like for pc app users. And than you will be No.1. Until that,,, u are 1 star.

Tony Cox

Few tweaks would make it perfect! Been on this site for years and love it. However this app needs improving, I've lost over 250 rating points on slow games due to the app disconnecting me in every game. You are never sure if its you or your opponent as there is no claim win button or ability to check your connection (as on the full site) so you wait for their time to run out and I lose points after waiting for an hour. Shame

Hemant Sharma

Thank you team Hey Chessbase Team, thank you so much for getting the app back on track for my cell, 5 stars now!! (Y)

Paddy Newman

Very nice It would be nice if, on mobile phones, the chess board consumed the full width of the screen.

A Google User

Doesn't work on android 4.4.4 with ART. Use to work with previous android version and dalvik. Doesn't work on android 4.4.4 with ART. Next version of android will default to ART. Do you have and ETA of when this will be enabled? Also please add win on disconnect and ping. There needs to be a way to find out if connection problems are ours or the opponents (09/26/2014). Close to a month later no reply or comment from developer. (10/17/2014) . Main complaint fixed. Thanks. Would still like win on disconnect and ping options added. (11/20/2014). :)

Danijel Domazet

Where is the "play" button? 1. After I play a good game, I usually open it for a quick review. In order to go through 50 moves I need to press "forward" button 100 times. Why don't you have such a basic feature like the "play" button? 2. How do I filter incoming challenges to, say, only blitz ones?

Chris Lamming

Excellent client but needs a few fixes I use this software daily, but have recently noticed some problems with it. If the connection speed is slow, there is no way of knowing which user has the problem. The smart phone app has no 'claim win on disconnect' option but the desktop version does, so your opponent can claim and you can't. I have mysteriously lost games suddenly when my clock shows lots of time and my position is fine, then suddenly the game ends! I wonder if the app has been hacked. Great app but please fix!

Richard Herrington

Problems with client I've used the playchess client for more than a year now and have (mostly) had no problems. However in the last few months, I have a reoccuring problem with the clent - whether I'm playing on my LG-G Optimus (JB 4.2) or my TF-101 Asus tablet (ICS 4.0.3). The client freezes after about 30-40 moves; the clock stops running for both opponents; however I can hear the sounds of my oponent capturing pieces, but my interface is unresponsive. I have to kill the client with a task manager - relogin to my account - to resume play. The client will freeze after a few more moves, then I have to start again. Sometimes when I relogin I have lost the game even though my opponents time has rundown and I have plenty of time. This problem has persisted despite the last two updates. I have uninstalled the client and have reinstalled it, but still have the same problem. I'm beginning to think perhaps that people are playing with hacked clients, or that there is an issue with the playchess server connectivity. Please fix this as I have been a loyal customer for years on the Android platform as well as the Microsoft Windows platform. Thanks in advance, VoodooChess

Anilkumar Bagani

Connection problem after subscribed I have subscribed for yearly plan and suddenly it stops connecting to the server, today fullday i have tried but same thing happened.

Taufik Haryanto

I've registered by filling at "New Account" button but, when was I logged on putting either my username and password into coloumn again that error happens. It says "Your Username and Password Unknown". I gotta remove it!!!

Sher Shah

Cant play It says me username and password are incorrect although my username and password are 100% correct please fix it and do easy.

Pranav Taysheti

Best app for social chess. Wow. Wonderful i can play with many people around the world. But still some improvements qare required. There is no option such as download later while watching a chess match. This option must be included to download a complete chess game automatically after the match has been completed between 2 players. Overall its good

A Google User

Fucked up.... Please don't download this app. Sucks. ..the clock suddenly falls off. .. no matter how short or long a game I play. ..what kind of bug is this. ... utter rubbish app...I lost on so many points. ... totally frustrating..

Dennis Gordon

great variety!! Places you at you at the heart of chess good discovery base have fun folks enjoy!!!!!

Luis Aragon

Good app-but.... Chessbase need to include a win on disconnect button on the app. I just lost 20 rating points on a completely winning game simply because connection was lost from my opponents end. It looks like he made the move, but my system wouldn't accept the move because it appears as though he had not made a move.

Joel Davis

Will not connect! I have used chessbase for years and have had accounts with them before on my pc. I saw the app and thought "great!". Boy I was wrong! Brand new phone..galaxy...and it will not connect even after 4 attempts...the last caused the phone to crash! No...not good!

Anthony Harper

Losing rating points after winning game! I've had a large # of games where I lose rating points after WINNING my games. It's pretty frustrating to say the least.....

Denis Brulić

Play disabled?! I still receive 0 players see your request. This is very annoying.

David Aldridge

Awful Drops the connection or will not connect. You will see dumb messages such as THE SOCKET IS NOT CONNECTED Chess. Com is far superior IMO

Victor Ng'ani

Frustrating Whenever Disconnects You can get disconnected from the server and there is no alert from the app. You think your opponent is just taking time. No way to reconnect easily either. You end up losing rating points in won positions too many times. Also, server slows down at times. I'm on a 10Mbps Connection. Used to be an occasional occurrence but now it's several games per session. Very frustrating.

Manas Baul

Get fix. Why do u crash? Love crashing? Go crash. And get out of my phone.

Paramesh R

Ok Could have given a guest account or refuce the subscription rate

Nik Stevlic

Cheaters solution, EVERYONE PLEASE REPOST! Since you refuse to give us an option to report players, even though hundreds have asked, at least give us an option to block them. For $12 a year, we are not asking for a lot. Also, showing a players rating in portrait mode is a must. PLEASE FIX

Tom Amlin

Outstanding Features I'm giving PlayChess five stars because of the awesome features of the app. Powerful engine analysis. Watch mode is always streaming live games from all top class tournaments. The 'share' button lets you send any game directly to your other chess apps for further review. Able to save to and create multiple custom file categories. Saved game files are shared with the Chessbase app! Fantastic!

Rajesh Nair

Unfair Its a safe heaven for cheaters out there who just stop playing and win on time. 5 out of 10 games are lost in the same fashion so watvh out!

Mayur Joshi

Must improve Unable to select player's just bcoz we hv leg delay internet with few player, we may mostly loose games time bounded.

Clifford Ball

Pure garbage With all the other new Chess apps to compete with this well-known site is showing itself to be inadequate

rohan ganatra

few updates required Cannot be played with frends and gets stuck at some times

Samy Omar

many hangs and many missed features while it still my favorite online chess playing app, but i am suffering from many hangs and sudden crashes without any active support from the chessbase

John Smith

Misses a lot from PC options, still

Denis Brulić

Where are updates?! No new features, no updates nor bug fixes for a year now.

Nick Beqo

Subscription sucks Advertized as Free but it's not Free! As a matter of fact it's not even one time payment only, it's by subscription!

Shashank Yadav

Very nice and better than other...especially graphics and server

reena gathani

Amazing I loved it because of it l am a champion

davood dkn

Very good

Julian S

Are you serious. This is an amateur app. Horrible and laughable. Avoid.

Amante Espejo Jr.

Nice chess app....the others criticizing are probably having problems with their gadgets not with the app

lalitha prabhakar

Good.. Need to improve

Ricky Stevano

Nokia x Please update and fix's was long time.thks

Rajgopal Nistala

Query Can we see Daniel king power play in this??

Shahriar Faruk

One suggestion If u put "next move button" at the right side it wud be more user it messes up whn watching the database though phone.... cz majority of the people use their phone wid right hand....

Mayur Joshi

Must improve Unstable app as we give app a permission as full network access this app misusing the permission as frequently disconnring wifi connection as they modify it

Dinky Bose
