Hey all, I've been writing a correspondence style chess game that I plan to release to the market in a few weeks. If you are willing to play a game or two and let me know if you see any problems, it would be a huge help!
Download

Currently I've only done layouts for phones, but will be working on tablet and Kindle Fire support over the next few weeks.









Thanks!

Thanks to everyone that has joined so far! I should mention that the player base is still pretty small - you will always start a game immediately and can move, but it may be a little while until an opponent makes their first move.
Unless something going horribly, terribly wrong I plan on rolling the server database forward for the Market release so you won't have to reregister and the game client will pop up a message when that is available.

Also feel free to follow Chess Mates on Google+ for more updates.

Hey this is awesome! I love chess against real people instead of the computer because the computer always beats me
The only problem I see so far is the player names on game board get cutoff at bottom on my samsung galaxy S2.

maybe show the last made move when scrolling through previous moves like you do when the game board first opens?

We published an update last night with several UI improvements and a completely new look for the chat:



There are some minor issues for ICS and the landscape view of larger devices so we will be pushing another update this weekend. Thanks again!
