    "iChess 3D is the game to go to when you don't have a board or opponent in front of you. Nothing beats playing chess in person, however this comes close. Need to pass some time and play some Chess, download IChess3D until your next face to face."

    "Chess is chess. A decent chess app is easy to make, but having extra things built in to the app can make it great. This app seems to have that, with the ability to analyze a previous game, as well as settings for all levels of player. If you want a chess app, I can't see a reason to pass this up."

    "I used to play chess as a kid, but I've fallen out of practice, and don't have anyone to play with here. This app connects you to other players around the world, and allows you to compete against someone at your skill level. But the app isn't for iPhone; it's Android only. "

    "I love playing chess on this app because its got a very unique engine behind it. Instead of feeling like you're playing a super computer it does actually mimic human plays sometimes and makes the experience much more enjoyable. I'd like the graphics to be improved a bit but otherwise its great!"

    "I love chess. I play it all the time. This is a good one - Tall Chess allows all skill levels to play or play with other people. More importantly for me, it allows exporting in common notation - meaning I can review my games later and understand what I did and learn from my mistakes. If you've got serious aspirations but don't have the budget for professional training, this can really be the difference between strategy and just acting randomly. You will not be disappointed!"
