    Please let me know when this is running - i'll buy it. Any plans for a trial version? I'm always wary of buying apps before trying them.

    Now...if you make a texas hold'em poker app where we can play against other real people for fake money - that will bag yoiu a LOT of cash!

    I generally do not do trials. I try to explain the application well enough to not require one.

    Update: PlayChess has been approved for sale on appworld. It is up there now.

    Currently, you will have to check the application to see if your opponent has moved. I am working on an email notification system.

    Please post any feature requests here and I will work on them for you!

    Please enjoy.

    Use the built-in notification system to notify of moves, screw email notifications (as that can get annoying)

    Using default notification system will 100% make me buy this

    I will make it an opt in. So both sides can be happy. And perhaps a popup notification of moves.

    I don't think the Playbook has support quite yet for developers to initiate device notifications.

    Oh, if its meant that way, then no I don't believe I can. So email will be an option, and while you're in the app it will tell you as well.

    UPDATE: Email notifications have been added. You can subscribe to them by entering your email address into the account registration.

    For those already registered, there is a field in preferences as well.

    I am going to work on a visual aid when you connect to let you know if you have anything to deal with next.

    In the next coming days, I will be removing the messages section from the app. I will work on an ingame messaging function.
