Doesn't work on android 4.4.4 with ART. Use to work with previous android version and dalvik. Doesn't work on android 4.4.4 with ART. Next version of android will default to ART. Do you have and ETA of when this will be enabled? Also please add win on disconnect and ping. There needs to be a way to find out if connection problems are ours or the opponents (09/26/2014). Close to a month later no reply or comment from developer. (10/17/2014)

Great online chess app but... Sometimes hangs when trying to connect to server. I had to uninstall and reinstall to make it work. Fix that I'll give you 5 stars again.

The app is OK but you could improve it by making the board bigger in landscape mode. And please, please bring an option to change the notation background color to other than white because it's hard to play chess with a flashlight in your eyes all the time. Thanks! Later edit... Have not been able to connect for the last 48 hours. What's up?
