Review: Chess with Friends Premium—$2.99
Chess with Friends Premium Released: October 22, 2009
Developer/Distributor: Newtoy, Inc.
Chess with Friends Premium version 1.0 tested on a 16GB iPhone 3GS
I reviewed Chess with Friends alongside Words with Friends a while back. I love both apps. Words with Friends, the pay version, just got an update that included push notifications, and when I was looking around, I noticed that there is now a new Chess with Friends product, Chess with Friends Premium, that unlike the free Chess with Friends app, actually costs a little bit of money, has no ads, and has support for push notifications. I’ve enjoyed so many games of chess with other people on Chess with Friends, that I decided to go ahead and buy the premium version. It works exactly the same as Chess with Friends free, but no ads and push notifications, rather than email updates. However, it’s an app that I love and that has given me hours of fun for free, so I figure $2.99 for a year of ad-free gameplay and push notifications isn’t too much to give to support a group of devs building cool stuff like that.
