Magnus's Super Online Chess is the ultimate iPhone/iPod Touch online chess client. It’s focused on quickly getting a game on and the thrill of playing rated games against opponents that are a good match.
Magnus's Super Online Chess connect to FICS - the Free Internet Chess Server (freechess.org). With over 300000 registered users and 1000+ people online you will ALWAYS find a good matchup as well as AI opponents at every level. Future updates will make sure that Online Chess can connect to ICS and other compatible internet chess servers.
The main problem with other Chess clients on the iPhone/iPod touch platform is the fact that the finger (for most adults) covers the piece you are moving. Online Chess mitigates that problem by zooming in the board so that you can clearly see where you are moving your piece to.
There will be frequent updates as I’m dedicated to make this the most user friendly, robust and enjoyable chess app in the App Store (feel free to email the author - email@example.com - if you have ANY suggestions for improvement).
I renamed the app from "Online Chess" because it just didn't stand out!!
