Annoying disconnection problems Often disconnects without notification

Losing the fun I don't know if it's the app, or if people are manipulating the server stamps, or what. But I keep getting deep into games only to find, after waiting out my opponent's time, that the connection was severed at some point, without warning or indication. What makes it worse is that some immature opponents like to let their time run on when they know they can't win. Not knowing which situation I'm in is annoying and this app is getting less and less enjoyable for me as a result. Good app, otherwise.
