Best way to play correspondence chess on a phone Red Hot Pawn have an android app but it's terrible. Gameknot have a mobile site but it's really slow. By contrast Chess by Post is a pleasure to use. I would give it 5 stars if all the content fit on my Samsung Galaxy Pocket's screen.

It used to work This used to be a great app. I love playing chess, but since 4 months ago, this app crashes constantly. I have emailed the developer, but he never responds back to my emails.

Chess redefined - and great support! This is a great way to play chess. I play ranked games against random people from around the world and work my way up the rankings, and also play unranked games against a group of friends for bragging rights! :-) Only problem is, I can end up playing about 5 games at once, which gets confusing - but Chess by Post has the answer to that too - you can make notes on each game, rewind through the game to see the last few moves to refresh your memory (or even all the way back to the beginning if you like!) and as if that wasn't enough, you can also use "Plan Moves" to freely take moves for both sides to try out your strategies for the rest of the game. This app has got me back into playing chess, which I haven't seriously done for decades. Also, the developer, Jeff, responded very quickly (emailed response within 45 minutes) when I had an issue. Excellent! The ads in the free version aren't intrusive, so I could easily have put up with them, but this is an app which was worth paying for, so I did.
