FICS Should Be Proud

Feb. 3, 2011 Global Chess is still the best FICS chess app. There are too many apps on my iPod that I hardly use, but GC is not one of them! Check out my original review below...

Global Chess is one of those apps that I keep returning to time and time again--being in a chess club also helps! ;) I cannot recommend Global Chess enough!

With the current update, I really can't find any problems. No ads, solid movement, complete FICS terminal, and a great community coupled with an awesome developer.

The developer listened to my suggestions and actually communicated as to why or why not some were implemented. Please, app developers, follow his example!
